This is maybe my favorite one in your gallery. He's one of the best characters and you did a great job. I always imagined him so, skinny, dirty and ugly. Simple perfect. :)

Again great work. This was one of the more favored characters in the series. (especially when he trains with Jaime).

You're welcome :)

By the way I hope you forgive my curiosity, but does your family name point at an Italian origin? I'm Italian myself, so I was kind of curious to ask.

Speaking of ASoIaF, I did a portrait of Tywin Lannister [link] as he was my favorite character. I hope you don't mind giving me a professional artist's opinion :)

Italian indeed! Among many other things. Tywin looks awesome man! I think yours captures the character much better than mine! And the armor looks awesome as well. Nice design and layout as well. I'd love to see you paint over the pencil drawing though, right now it feels more like a sketch. Maybe define the forms/planes of the head (scalp) a little more. Great piece though!

Thanks man :D
But I don't know, I love your Tywin too. All I could dare to criticize is that I would have made a deeper crimson of his cloak and show the green eyes, but under that light I see it would be kind of irrealistic.
Hmm yes, next time I should definitely pay more attention to the lineart, since I have to keep it (not having a tablet is kinda tricky, so leaving the linearts helps a lot of trouble).
Next time I'll keep that in mind. When I've got some time for myself I plan portraying the Blackfish. Although for some reason I can't think about Brynden Tully without imagining him with the face of Liam Neeson... :)

Ha ha, I know! I wish I could have shown his missing tounge, but I wanted to give him a more reserved badass look. Besides, it's not something he goes around showing off... I would :P

I can't remember if Illyn was balding, but this is still a great thing here. My only dissapointment is you didn't show his lack of tounge. :p Hey, when are you doing the next batch of these?

Gosh, are you an official illustrator to ASoIaF or something? Cos you should be. I don't usually like realistic style so much, but your work is great, sensitive and veeeery powerful. Did you know a roleplay book is coming out next year? I would love to see illustrations as beautiful as yours in it.

I just had to comment on this one, as it’s quite an unusual sight around here.
He looks for one thing like a real knight, the armour is well built up and appears authentic, and slightly scuffed, and a sword the wielder can actually lift.
The knight is also balding, and is wirier rather than buff.
He seems like the type who’d survive another battle. Frankly I’d put my money on that fellow if there was an all round bet on who kicks it and who lasts in a fight.

There is also something else beyond mere subject, the common and plain paired with the more extraordinary, like the man’s expression and the lighting.
I suppose it’s a combination of nobleness, duty and glory, but of a more muted sort.
It’s nice once in a while to see a more human like illustration of warriors, not buffed up and shiny and weighed down by unnecessary decoration.

Maverchare... that was so much fun to read!! Ha ha, seriously, thanx! I'm so glad that the subtlety of the image is appreciated. I really wanted the "human" quality of this character to show through. Thanx again for the kind words!
