Hey, remember when SPOILIILILILILILILIERS

I don't usually draw Jon because he's sooooo popular. I'll stick with Lommy Greenhands thank you. I do however have a great affinity for the brief and very compelling appearance of Qhorin Halfhand. Qhorin. You may have half a hand, but you have all of my heart. And a killer pony tail.

Speaking of hands, George Martin really hates hands. I'm trying not to be a spoiler here. People always talk about the volume of death in these books, but if you add up all the real death there's not as much as you would think. But if you were to tally the amount of hand death? There should be a museum honoring the maimed hands in this book.

This part is also the first appearance of one of my favorite characters, the Lord o' Bones. I had planned on jamming him in, in some way but, I'll do something with him later. Doesn't everyone love the wildlings?

What, Qhorin is a Targaryen?! Or..just old?? xD But yeah, there is an insane amount of handmaiming in this series, it's like everytime there is a minor injury of some body part it just has to be a hand. I wonder if he's trying to tell us something? And aaww, Jon looks so cute and troubled :D

Haha he's old. Jon would be troubled!

But he just looks suspiciously tanned for a man of the Night's Watch.. Jon is always trouble. That's why he's there

There's not nearly enough Qhorin. Thank you, Sir. Also, I love your version of Jon. Very close to my own mental picture of him.

thanks! I just can't picture Jon as old as he is on the show

I know. Jon was the character I was most disappointed with. The scruffiness, the tight little curls in his hair...none of it worked for me.

he's decent but, you're right not quite what I imagined. Also his voice...why is it so deep?

:icondelanthaenas:
Delanthaenas Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
because he's 25 and not 15, I'd imagine. Jaime and Cersei are not quite how I pictured them either (how many times do they talk about having golden curls?) but I like both of the actors playing them regardless. Which isn't to say Kit Harrington isn't awesome, he's just very far from how I pictured Jon for years.

Indeed. Jaime more so than Cersei. Also what was up with Syrio!?

Delanthaenas Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012
Yeah, Jaime def bugs me more. Syrio I didn't mind so much, because he's a relatively minor character, and I never got too clear a picture of him. Though, I am really looking forward to seeing how they pull of Jaqen and Brienne. Have you seen the actress that was cast in her role? She's definitely got the height, but she's also gorgeous, and I'm really hoping they won't try to pull some kind of "Oh Brienne is really pretty, she just wears manly clothes and armor and is kind of dirty" crap.

Oh I have no problems with Brienne. I saw the actress and thought she was too pretty, but have you seen the shots of her in full costume? She looks awful. Perfect for Brienne.

LIZ LOVES THE WILDLINGS, YES SHE DO, LIZ LOVES THE WILDINGS HOW 'BOUT YOU

I wish I could see your interpretation of Qhorin's face, mostly just because I really like how you portray all of these characters, but this is a great narratively drawn scene. =)

Thanks! I drew him once awhile ago and didn't show his face either, so I had this kinda "thing" going. Wildlings4lyfe.

Noice.

Anyway, do you have any plans on drawing up the Sand Snakes at any point? I am fond of them. Them and their crazy. :D

Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2012
Ahhhh. The Sand Snakes. I hope you just mean the main 4 right not the little girls? I get requests for that all the time. You've convinced me.

Any kind of fantasy/sci fi shit is awesome, though I am certainly open to suggestions and expanding my horizons, so whatever you'd want really. :D Though if you want any sort of aSoIaF fan art, that would be double good since I owe George RR Martin a piece of fan art, but I totally haven't gotten around to doing it.

(Also, I refuse to add any context to that story, so as to make it seem way more epic than it actually is.)

Haha damn I would want some context. Um. Hmm. Well who is your favorite/most interesting looking character?

God bless your depiction of Jon. I get so frustrated when people draw him all giant and mansly. He's still a whiny little boy at this point! What is he, like, 15 or something? I too am a great fan of Qhorin Halfhand- he really did have a huge presence for such a short lifespan.

Tell me about it. I know he's supposed to have a little dirt smudge mustache but I just can't bring myself to do that to him.

the Lord o' Bones? Someone's member is bigger, longer, and more badass than that one! HAR!
But mr Qhorin exceeded the badass meter as well, a shame his participation was not extended (but then again, he'd been in the Wall since... forever)

haha hey we don't know that for sure. The Lord o' Bones could've had a serious bone. Tormund is a lot more fun though. I'm a sucker for incompetent big shot types.

Qhorin had a good run haha.
