I want to thank "Anonymous" on Tumblr who requested a Christmas Bethyl piece.
"Brighter than a star" features Daryl decorating Beth with fairy lights on Christmas Eve, snow falling all around them, while she stares serenely at the snow globe in her hands. I wanted to add a little special moment from the Walking Dead, so if you look closely at the globe, you will see it's the run-down shack from episode "Still" engulfed in flames. Because that moment is where they really connected in the story line, and holds a special place in their hearts.

Before Digital touch up, I used a mix of watercolors, watercolor pencils, gouache and pencil.
Here's a close up of the shack inside the globe.
