'Hey man! Hope you don't mind, that I used this artwork on my weekly cast, all due credits have been given though - soundcloud.com/syed-adeel-rizv… Hope you enjoy hearing the mix and keep up the awesome work!
and then he curshed his head. i mean, no. it was not like the viper was one of my new favourite chracters EVEN THOUGH i told myself not to start liking a character.... anyway, i'm not mad. no not at all mr martin. just continue with slaughtering all MY favourites. it's not like i need them xD
Exactly THIS is the reason why I gave up on watching this series right after season 1. I may be a romantic, but I like my heroes and I like to see them triumph in the end. GoT cultivates heroes just to slaughter them when it hurts.
Yeah, well, thanks to Youtube and my weak will I'm quite up to date on the story anyway...
You say you gave up after series 1? Was that after Ned Stark died? Because I was very mad at that as well! I was waiting for something to save him (like every other programme). It was the first instance I understood that Game of Thrones doesn't indulge in cliches and that anybody could die at any time!
BTW Ned Stark is my favourite character out of the whole thing at the moment!
I kept going till the end of first season but yeah, Ned's death kind of killed the fun for me. Of course this unpredictability is an essential part of G.R.R. Martin's epos, but I like my epic stuff with happy ends. The fight between the Viper and the Mountain showed this once more - I just wasn't happy with the way it turned out, it was... unfair, I guess.
My favourite character of the series would be Lady Olenna Tyrell, who, pardon me, has bigger balls than most other nobles in Westeros. The scene where she meets her match in Tywin Lannister made me smile, because there the two strongest minds meet and engage in combat.
(also spoiler) Well... That is how real life works. Anyone can die at any time. Why give tv characters special treatment? I won't be surprised if the little Lannister dies. Ned Stark was perhaps the most honorable character and they pretty much killed him off first, what does that mean for everyone else?
Interesting to see how well your drawing corresponds to the scene that was released just a few days ago. It must be really well written book then.
I only saw it on TV. And it was quite a memorable scene. I am used to exploitation films, but this scene was still... shocking as hell! Anyways, back to your picture. I love this style of speed paintings. You also managed to show the dynamic of it so well. Very good is also the contrast between those two characters. One slow and heavy, yet extremly bold and indestructible. And the other one agile but impetuous, full of rage that blinded him.
