Walking Dead: Dark Days (Daryl x Carol) by NickLavin Walking Dead: Dark Days (Daryl x Carol) by NickLavin
"Love will see us through these dark days, though they seem to darken as we go."

Daryl and Carol from the Walking Dead.
First time full painting a background. I listened to a bunch of folk/blues/bluegrass while drawing this.

The texture was found on google.

Thanks! I listened to a lot of the Punch Brothers, some Modest Mouse, Hugh Laurie's boxcar blues album, the soundtrack to the Hunger Games--it's full of some nice folk/blues-esque music, and a mix of other stuff I looked up on youtube.

Try Pandora.com : ) When you enter a band, it plays others that are in the same category. So you can find tons of music from those categories.

And thank you!

So much emotion and attention to detail (like the rip on his jeans). This is really a beautiful piece - the kind you can keep your eyes on for quite a bit and really appreciate. I hope you sent this to Norman or Melissa - they're both really excellent about sharing fanart on their Twitter accounts!

I have a Twitter account, I just don't know if these are the ones I've found are their actual accounts. I'd like to send it to them though : )
Melissa McBride: [link]
Norman Reedus: [link]

These are the two I think are them.

Yes, those are the official and verified accounts. :) You can always tell which celebrity accounts are authentic by the blue check mark by the names. Best of luck! I follow them both, so hope to see your work retweeted. :D
