Greatjon by Sir-Heartsalot Greatjon by Sir-Heartsalot
grrms asoiaf

The Greatjon, he's not so great. This is really more like "generic viking lookJon umber". I kind of pictured him a little more lordly looking, with hair. This is what came out though, I mean he is old.

I just don't understand the Greatjon. I mean sure Grey Wind bites off two of his fingers and he becomes Robb's greatest supporter, but it's like, if I was best friends with everybody who bit off two of my fingers, I'd have a lot less friends and a lot more fingers. Yeah.

Also, his axe hand. I drew a formless mass just to have something there and meant to go back and make it look more like a fist, but then I looked at my own fingerless stump for reference and...well, you get it.

SPOILER
You should have drawn him a\s he was in the fourth book-- A drunken beast who couldn't be taken down except with twenty men and a hail of crossbows. That was him, correct?

I think that was his equally badass son, SMALLJON Umber.

nope. Greatjon escapes the Red Wedding, one of the few who does. I dunno who you're talking about...Leonidas?

He is a prisoner at the twins but still alive.

My bad. Looked up that part. I thought he was killed for some reason. Still...he puts up quite a fight.

Hmmm...I'll try and find it later. I just remember a character complaining how it still took a lot of men to take one of the characters down.

Hair+Violence+Fur+Not a lot of Brains=A Good Northman

It's a tried and true equation.

Hey, bit of critique: You might consider adding the back of his tunic, like where it should be hanging down in the background behind/between his legs and his cloak .

I thought only the Kingsguard got white cloaks. I could be wrong, though. It's been a while since I read the books.

Anyways, this is pretty much what I imagined he's look like, except possibly with slightly more hair and house sigil. Great job.

it's not so much white as is it made from a polar bear. I meant to make that more clear..

o_0 I didn't notice the lack of fingers until you mentioned it. I did imagine him harrier 9is that how you spell that?) though! Still, he looks awesome!

Yes well fingers nonwithstanding (hah!) the axe itself is a really strong portion of the piece. Good contrast to the softness of the shadows on the rest of him. Plus, I mean, it's the GreatJon. He's like a human bear - which I perceive as justification in and of itself... for what, I'm not entirely certain, but hey.

you mean the baldness? Or like, his arms? Cuz he has sleeves. Underneath those sleeves it is Sasquatch trust me.

It's fingers or destiny, man. Would you really, really, choose fingers?
