"Totem"


I'd like to thank DeviantArtist,  CherryCherrubie, once again for this Bethyl request. 

"Totem" ~ a symbol for family, tribe or a clan. 

This piece features Daryl, Beth and their son (let's call him Connor, shall we?) as a symbol of unity. 

Daryl also popped the question, in case you guys haven't noticed the rings on their fingers. 

*it's a bit scary to see how often fans do this* 
O__o

 My only reason for adding the ring was Hershel. Beth was raised in his household to abide by certain traditions. Conceiving out of wedlock would've probably caused a stern disapproval from her father, but I want to think the decision was made to honor Hershel's beliefs and keep them alive in a world that is slowly fading.

And, yes, Daryl's poncho was turned into a sweater!

WIP ~ Bethyl request

A Bethyl WIP with a "Family" theme, requested by DeviantArtist CherryCherrubie, who wanted Beth and Daryl with a child of their own. 

Per her request, the child had to be a boy, a "mini Daryl," with Beth's hair and personality.

Let's see where this goes, huh?
