A Song of Ice and Fire (or "Game of Throne" to TV series followers) fanart. Daenerys and Arya are my favourites characters!!Gotto paint them!

I was worried about the combination of these two characters because they are not really related in the story. I love both of them so much that i couldn't give up any of them so I put them together.I was thinking Targaryen's "Blood and Fire" and Stark's "Winter is coming" just nicely hinting the words "Ice"and"fire" in the book title. The title does not mean these two houses but ice and fire are nice elements for illustrations, aren't they?

If ya like it hope ya can vote me here for the fanart fest: cggallery.itsartmag.com/story.… (Trojan horse was a unicorn festival)
Thx!XD

This is a wonderful piece, makes me jealous of your art skills as well as very awestruck (I believe that's the word).
Even if they are not related directly in story, they have nice parallels. There's a gif set on tumblr about and a long discussion post also there comparing pieces of their book PoVs.
I mean, they are the most close to their sigils from the ones known to be of their house (Daenerys, in the books at least, talks much of the dragon blood, how dragons don't cry and many others; and Arya the same, talking of her wolfblood and things like so. They have nice parallels, give it a look). This is 
Also: I ship them, so there's that.

One of the best GoT inspired pieces I've seen.

This is very beautiful :D I also love these two characters, and they have a lot of parallels between them. I think if Daenerys and Arya knew each other they would be very good friends :)

I really love the composition of this. The ice and fire themes work so well for them and go together perfectly. I love the way you draw Arya.

Also Arya's father sword was called Ice, so you really did a good job with the concept, it looks great :D

Two of my faves! And it's nice to find book-related fan art as opposed to just from the show. You've done lovely work here! :love:

This is awesome! I love this two characters, they have so much in common, as someone else said. And they both have great personalities.
I love your style and this fanart in particular. Great work!

Its amazing how these two have so much in common. They are both forced into exile after their Houses lost a war and many senior members of their houses were murdered or presumed dead. I think if they do meet, Dany would fall in an instant for Arya's story and take her under her wing and Arya would think Dany is the coolest with the dragons and everyone bowing down to her. And Arya would also help Dany root out and kill her enemies.

Amaaazing job! I've tried to do this kind of collaging of images before, and this is so successful. And I love your style! Thought this was a traditional piece at first because of the texture :)
