House Manderly by Sir-Heartsalot House Manderly by Sir-Heartsalot
grrms asoiaf

Since Donella Manderly is a Hornwood, I decided to reflect house Hornwood's ghastly color scheme. Forgive me. Lady Donella is a comely post-menopausal lady, with the bad habit of biting her nails. Gonna get you into trouble someday. I decided to give her Princess Leia cinnamon bun hair because I hate her.

Lord Manderly is a bad-ass as we all know. I decided to make all the mermen of house Manderly super buff to reflect this. Also I realize the mermen look more like genies. Wyman may be too fat to sit a horse, but uh, he's not too fat to eat pies. Pies.

Ser Wendel is a cool knight, and a rather blatant reference to a particular game I'm fond of. Guess which!

And then Ser Wylis, who's like the heir or whatever. Also a big tub of goo. Also I apparently drew him as the Mayor of Munchkinland.

I like how all the houses have their own little genetic quirk. Lannisters are all blonde, Targaryen's have the purple eyes, the Cleganes are all going to Hell, the Tullys are like, fishy or something? And the Manderlys are just bloated pieces of flotsam from the river.

I don't think I forgot any important ones, I know there's like a few noisy kids er some junk.

It's kinda sinister, the way that pie is lurking there.

Wyman Manderly is a special kind of badass indeed. I was looking over some asoiaf theories and I came upon one about the pies he served the Freys, I often miss things like that in the books, there's just so much information coming at you it's hard to notice the little things. If you don't know to what I'm referring here's a link awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/…

oh yes I'm well versed in the pies. I fully subscribe to this theory I think it's pretty well spelled out.

Yeah, alot of people support it and I had just never paid it any mind, the thought of Freys unknowingly eating each other makes me happy.

Wait....Are you saying that Lady Stonehart is a Manderly? (refering to the line about manderlys and flotsam.

Was I? No I was just saying the Manderlys washed up at White Harbor from like another part of Westeros so they're kinda like pieces of flotsam?

And like how those guys from the Sisters have webbed fingers, or the Florents have big ears. The Targaryens and their 50-50 madness/greatness multiplier is cool too. Thanks! Glad I could brighten your day.

I lost it at Wendel wearing basically Siegmeyer of Catarina's armor! It does fit with the Manderlies, the first time I played Dark Souls and saw him, I swear I thought of the Manderlies!

Another little genetic quirk; all of the Greyjpy boys are crazy as shit. And I'm talking about Balon's brothers, not his kids.

Nice pic - I hope for one of the scene in that Davos chapter where Wylla talks back. Wylla is a plucky young lady.

Genuinely curious - what's wrong with Donella Manderly? I liked her in the books.

Glorious, I laughed out loud xP (The Tullys are known for their auburn(reddish brown) hair and blue eyes, but you were on a roll so it's all good. I love your art btw.

I LOVE the Manderly's. They're my favourite family and your drawing is FANTASTIC.

I hope you'll also make a Wylla someday. That girl was badass too.

That's so flattering! I choose to assume there are no rivals and you only made one comment. Ah, warmth.

Maybe I will! If she gets a little more prominent.

Anyone who cooks the Frey's into pies and gives them to Boltons are good in my book (Those three pies that Manderly brought to Ramsey's and Jenye's wedding were the three Freys that came to White Harbor, serves them right)

yes! And I was like infuriated at the first part of Davos' POV but later on I was like OMG! Are they going cannibal on these F*******?!! ANd then I was like oh S**** they are!!! >_< and then Lord Manderly was wounded and I was like holy- that's one BAMF Retireee!!! GODS!! So much Manderly love right now!! :headbang:
And LOL at the pie by the shadows XDD

haha I'm glad you noticed the pie. I like how Manderly's knights are cool too, his men are actually competent. Have any theories as to Big Walder?
Reply
:iconruriko21:
Ruriko21 Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012
as To Big Walder, I think he's scared of what could happen to him or if he'd live long enough to still be on the line of inheritance or maybe he'll be a bit hesitant of the probability of him replacing little Walder as the Bastard of Bolton's squire... Don't care much about him except that maybe he still has hope since he's troubled about serving the Bastard and what his cousin was turning into!! But well you know I don't have much care about the Freys except hoping they get eaten by hundreds of wolves... hmm that's bad... >_<
