Ser Barristan Selmy by capprotti Ser Barristan Selmy by capprotti
Just saw this on Fantasy Flight Games' site yesterday. This card was a LOT of fun to do. Kinda quick and dirty, I had to get it done in a day. Every once in a while it actually works out. Even though there's a lot of really loose elements, I enjoy the image as a whole and I'm glad FFG did as well. Hope ya digs!

Edit: There was a lot bothering me about this piece, the unfinished nature of it. So I gave it another pass. I'm much happier this time around. I might even give it another pass tomorrow (but probably not :P)

Barristan is old, (pushing 60 when the series begins) but he's extremely spry for his age. He's also listed as one of the few men capable of taking on Jaime Lannister in a straight up fight.

After he's dismissed, he comes to be known as "Sir Grandfather" and, "Sir White-beard" because of his advanced age. Even today, he remains one of the few, genuinely honorable characters still alive and kicking in the series.

I like him personally, especially after he showed up Joffrey without getting killed.

I really love your interpretation of Ser Barristan Selmy.
Not only does he look like a proud warrior, but alos like the wise old man he became over the years.

Really impressive work, if you'd ask me.

You do a great job capturing the age and wear in his face. It contrasts nicely with his shining armour and white cloak!
