Personal piece, 2014; Pencil, Photoshop PS5.

***UPDATED: Now current through all of season 6***

***PLEASE! For the sake of anyone looking or reading the comments - NO BOOK SPOILERS! We can talk about what's happened so far, but not the stuff that hasn't happened yet.*** We're past what the books can show, so I guess everybody's on even ground, now.

So, this was an idea that I was shocked - SHOCKED - had not been done yet. When it occurred to me, I scoured the Googles to see whether anybody else had done it, but nothing came up. So here I am, sitting on this goldmine idea. In case anybody isn't getting the reference, this piece is an homage to the classic John Byrne cover to Uncanny X-Men #141 - the start of the Days of Future Past storyline. With the upcoming movie, you'll probably be seeing this cover more often.

I selected Danny, Tyrion, and Jon for the front because they seem to have the strongest "Plot Armor." Whatever else might appear to happen to them, I suspect we'll be seeing them through to the end of the story. Though god knows I could be wrong. That Martin SOB loves toying with our emotions.

Here's a detail compilation of the headshots from the poster without all the postery effects:

I've never seen the show, but I like many of the actors and I love the X-Men reference!

That is an amazing use of a classic X-Men cover to illustrate how good GoT is.

Thank you. I was surprised nobody had done this particular mash-up before I thought of it. :)

I have looked t this several times and this is the 1st time I saw Danny. Guess I'm not paying due attention. Sorry. Love the concept.

Ha! No need to apologize. I personally love when I keep seeing new things in a piece of art. :)

Great fan art! A perfect blending of a memorable X-Men cover (thanks for mentioning it in the description) and a globally phenomenal saga (both in cable and novel medium). Two thumbs up indeed.

Super!! I have the comicbook you're referencing here, it was a memorable cover!

Probably one of the most memorable covers of all time.

Also looks like one of the star was last of the jedi comic covers with Obi-wan. Excellent job!

Yeah, there have been a lot of homages to this old X-Men cover. John Byrne really knew what he was doing. :D
