Doodles from last night's Game of Thrones episode: Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things

Arya is my BFF. Seriously, the girl lives in superpatriarchal times but it's not stopping her from kicking ass and taking names.

Whatever Ned and Jon (I'm totally assuming he's equally responsible for encouraging her) did while she was growing up, it's not going to be undone anytime soon. (I hope)

If u haven't read first books from G R R Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" - don't waste any more time! These are absolutely deviolicious pieces of fantasy prose beyond any competition. He's better than Tolkien, better than anyone to the date. If u liked Eriksson's Malaz u'll probably think of it as an far lower imitation of Martin's Seven Kingdoms.
I love SoIaF mostly because its evil characters. They are not crippled, small men (and women) in too tigth shoes with only ilusional strength broken easily by the good ones. SoIaF villians are a masterpiece, their motivations are convincing, their skills are real... they're nothing less than white-hatted guys and are additionaly armed in wide arsenal of immoral actions.

This char is Daenerys, member of almost extinct royal human race of Valyrian. Her ancestors conquered Seven Kingdoms about 300 years before first book's action and held it untill rebellion that broke out about 10 years before. She and her brother were only Targaryens (second name) that escaped death and after growing up tried to regain what was thiers. Starting with only name and rigtheous claim to the throne.
Daenerys is on 3rd - 2nd plane in first two books.

On the pic she has three small dragons more than royal name...

I intend to draw some more GRRM novel pics, next time villian... ofcourse!

Even more Heroes fanart! What have I done? srsly. This time we've got Niki and Micah Sanders, both looking kind of cute. Niki's eyes are a little neurotic though. With Jessica about, I don't really blame her.

Hand drawn with pen and Sharpie.

Okay, another population of deep-space humans. These guys have taken their genetic modification even further, into the stereotypically "fetal posthuman" form with multiple spindly limbs for ideal movement and manipulation of artifacts in a zero-G environment. The legs have either been adapated into something more like "arms" terminating in "hands," or at the very least have been modified into grasping tarsier-like feet. ~M0AI's comments on the issue of cultural perceptions of body modification ([link]) convinced me that certain ethnic or religious groups might be more predisposed towards certain body forms--the reception of Lakshmi Tatma ([link]) is an excellent contemporary real-world example, so drastically at odds with "our" (Western) perception of physical "deformity" (the value bias being inherent in the word itself). I started thinking as I was working on this that these guys' choice of extreme modification might be something that puts them at odds with a more conservative faction of deep-space "uberhumans" who, while having drastically modified their own forms, ironically disdain this kind of divergence from cosmetic terrestrial human norms. (I'm thinking of this third faction as something Zentraedi-like, possibly adapted to higher-gravity environments within the atmospheres of Jovian worlds; "gas harvesters," perhaps.) The high-G humans would find the "Crab Men" particularly offensive because their body designs seem to be converging on the hated Overculture Guardians patrolling the fluid giant worlds ([link]). Such a cultural and racial bias might be the perfect pretext for an incursion into Crab Man space, with the practical goal of seizing rich mineral resources and territory safe from Dreadnought attacks. The Crab Men are themselves no pushovers, and may have allies in the Caterpillar Men. Come on, people, can't we all just get ALONG to fight the giant alien bugs?!

I pictured these guys using really rugged-looking crustacean- and insect-like powered armor...There's just something that really charges me up about the idea of little crab people using giant, hulking crab mechs! : D This idea of little wizened humanoids operating heavy machinery, using the machines as proxy "bodies" to compensate for their own physical frailty, is something that goes way back both in science fiction and for me personally in terms of my interest in mechs--War of the Worlds, Dr. Who's Daleks, Palladium's Mechanoids, even the TMNT Utroms...I even remember when I first saw the Invid in Robotech when I was like, God, 10 years old, and I heard the word "Invid" as "Invalid"--my interpretation of it was that like the Daleks, these were actually powered armor for physically fragile beings who had perhaps been crippled by some plague or biotechnological disaster in their own distant past. So in a sense the Crab Men are my own take on that old idea.

FRANK, GO AWAY YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LOOK AT THIS.

Arghhh, finally drew something that's looking GOOD. I'm so happy with this I had to share it right away. This is only a small part of a larger drawing I'm doing for my brother. The final piece will be in graphite, but I prefer to do my designing in PS cause it allows for easy tweaking and adjusting. Obviously I used Charles Dance as ref (cause let's be honest, he makes a perfect Vetinari) but I tweaked his face a little so that it's not an exact likeness. So pleased with his face. I was going for a amused, knowing smile. Hope it worked out!

Mech practicing, don't plan to color it.
However, I don't like it's neck, I don't satisfied with the design. But well, it's a good attempt.
