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.

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.

I've come to look forward to your descriptions every bit as much as, if not more than, the art itself. Should I be worried?

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?
