ASOIAF meme snippet by toerning ASOIAF meme snippet by toerning
Doing my part to create hype for the ASOIAF pilot next year; we need a lot of people and a lot of enthusiasm for HBO to pick this up so if you are intrigued, please read the books! "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. (yeahIknow) Martin.

Lol apparently I like all the Emo guys. That, or Martin does!
I've been working on this meme for, like, months, meaning I re-do the first few questions every few weeks and ARGH I just get TOO INTO THEM! So I'm just posting this question while it's fresh. May post more, but we'll just have to see.
Paint Tool SAI and photoshop. around 1.5-2 hours each sketch to final. For the record, I also really love Robb but I couldn't bring myself to do another one!

Just out of curiosity, may I ask why Sandor is one of your faves? I'm only 3/4 of the way through book 3, but he strikes me as a really evil, cruel man. My faves would be Arya, Jon Snow & Tyrion

Mostly because he's so tremendously flawed, yet he's honest. Brutally so, but honest all the same. I identify greatly with his wanting someone he can never hope to have. It's like he wants to express himself somehow but it comes out backwards with a few f-bombs in the bargain, and he doesn't apologize for it if he screws it up. There are lots of reasons, but a devart comment is not a great place to be eloquent, if I was in any way able to BE eloquent. I just think he's interesting and I wish he and Tyrion could have a spin-off buddy comedy type series where they go on a drinking-wine and doing-wenches sort of Westeros world tour. Also, he loves his horse and you can't go wrong with that.

I've almost finished the third book, so I'm by no means up-to-date with everything that's happened so far, but I really appreciate the way that he writes each character so thoroughly, you get to know them, even the ones that aren't so nice. And I'll admit, sometimes the not-so-nice ones can be more interesting, but at the same time I end up hating them as much as Arya does lol. Anyway, I guess one of the great things about the books is that everyone ends up having different favorites. Mine are Arya, Bran, Jon Snow & Tyrion :)

(what do you think about Sandor now, after some months and some, probably devouring, err, reading? /sorry to bother D: )

Funny how everyone likes these novels, now that they have been on TV.

In any case, spectacular art - You have a superb talent!

I think HBO is doing a really fantastic job at adapting the series for screen, it's quite a victory for a fantasy series to have made it this far into mainstream culture.

Thanks very much!

YOWZA! They all look amazing in your style! I think I love your Jon the best though. Perfectly emo. :lol:
LostOddity Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2011
Can't believe I didn't read these books sooner. These three characters are all my favourites too (as well as Arya). I love the expressions on their faces, and the different backdrops to each scene. Lovely. ^_^
DemonsEatTheRainbow Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011

It's been a while since I've seen some amazing ASOIAF artwork! Wonderfully captured!

Great work with all the characters! I especially love Tyrion (based on Dinklage, right?) and the wonderfully exotic Dany.

This is so nice... I like all the distinct character depictions!

Holy shit these are incredible.
AutumnEmbers Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's just part of the meme? Dang haha. =)

I love how you draw them, though Jon looks a bit older. =)

I too love Jon, until the last bit in AFfC, hopefully he'll change in ADoD. And Sandor is one of my favourites as well.

I don't know how I've missed this in all my searches lately! I love this. I love the style of it and they _are_ 4 of my favorite characters, too!!! I also love Arya and Jaime. This is awesome! Good job! <3
jupiterinleo Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
I absolutely adore your interpretation of the characters and the way you portrayed them. What makes this better is that we have the same favorites. :D
Definitely a fav!

I've been nerding out on the pilot for a couple of months now. You should join us where all the action is at: [link]

And continue to spread the hype with your lovely work! Your fanart on this series is some of the best I've seen, and I absolutely love your other Dany piece. This one looks a little too mature for a young teenager, but still beautiful nonetheless.
toerning Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009
omg i know, Winter is Coming is practically my homepage!!! That's where I got the "start hype!" tip!
Thank you so much for your kind words! :heart:
JuneBerry Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009  Professional General Artist
oh do you ever post there? I post there as "Lauren" if you've ever seen me; I only post occasionally though, so you may not have noticed. lol

Also, yay! Bran has finally been cast! Now to find out who Drogo is gonna be.......... :la: :woohoo:
Cacodaemonia Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
OMG these are AWESOME. I really love the one of Tyrion. :D
GoranGligovic Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2009
Great job! I'm doing my best about the hype bussiness too. I think your Tyrion is the best.
esmith88 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2009
Yes! yes! spread the word, create hype! I love how your Dany looks even if she isn't one of my favourites. When most people draw her she is too pretty and looks weak (at least in my opinion). Here she looks like she could actually take the Seven Kingdoms and is hot at the same time. Also Sandor... Mmmm.... (drowns in puddle of drool at the thought of his badassitude and hotness)
kreugan Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2009
HELLO just wanted to say I am reading the books largely because of you and these gorgeous portraits <33333333 love the books so far!

I love this so much :love:
Daernerys is a big surprise, she looks much better and believable than any interpretation I have ever seen.
Wow at Tyrion, you made him look attractive.. this picture will change the figure in my head forever.
Jon is Jon, sad bastard love <3.

Where does all the Sandor Clegane love come from? I haven't finished the second book yet and until now he is just a sadistic and brutal side character. *reads further*
toerning Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009
hahahaha ohhh you just wait, my friend, you just wait.
thank you so much for your sweet comment! :heart:
MissLey Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

I was just wondering through and I saw this. I was like ASOIAF!!! I love how you drew the Hound. He looks so evily awesome. And Dany. <3 Jon I dont have enough words for Mr. Snow. Tyrion was never really a big fav of mine. XD

I so didnt know they where thinking of making it on HBO. That is so exciting! I sooo want to draw some ASOIAF. XD
teknoarcanist Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009
I haven't heard anything about the HBO series in forever @_@ I was afraid it had just kinda been...forgotten, or something.
I don't think I've actually seen Dinklage in anything where's not playing 'the funny midget' character. He does look the part though; I just hope he can act, because Tyrion is for real my favorite character in that whole series.
DawnElaineDarkwood Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
:) your dany looks so old... but cool!... i'm still reading the first book... so i see her as nearly a child, a very grown up child nevertheless

love your jon snow! very close to my inner picture of him...

these are my favourites too... exept for sandor... he hasn't made much of an appearance yet... i like both stark girls too.. and bran... lol nearly all of them ^^
Snaphance93 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Tyrion is so freaking cool! And Bronn too - someone should draw him someday xD I like this rough-and-ready style you've used, and I certainly look forward to the next part of this meme. And the pilot too, of course^^
toerning Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2009
oh man i love bronn. he's such a badass. actually, Sir-Heartsalot and PojyPojy both have some great sketches of Bronn!
