Welcome to Winterfell by cabepfir Welcome to Winterfell by cabepfir
Eddard & Catelyn Stark welcoming the royal couple in Winterfell, at the beginning of The Game of Thrones

Commission for Redcandle17 :)

"Robert's queen, Cersei Lannister, entered on foot with her younger children. The wheelhouse in which they had ridden, a huge double-decked carriage of oiled oak and gilded metal pulled by forty heavy draft horses, was too wide to pass through the castle gate. Ned knelt in the snow to kiss the queen's ring, while Robert embraced Catelyn like a long-lost sister."
"His lord father had come first, escorting the queen. She was as beautiful as men said. A jeweled tiara gleamed amidst her long golden hair, its emeralds a perfect match for the green of her eyes. His father helped her up the steps to the dais and led her to her seat, but the queen never so much as looked at him."
"Robert wore thick brown gloves and a heavy fur cloak with a hood that covered his ears, and looked for all the world like a bear sitting a horse"
A Game of Thrones, HarperVoyager edition, extracts from pp. 40, 50 and 109 respectively.

Watercolours on Hahnemühle Bamboo 265 gsm.

You can TOTALLY guess what's going on in Robert and Cersei's minds from their facial expressions!

Robert
"Mmmmm......Methinks I'd fancy some trout in my stag stew......^_^"

Cersei
"UGH! A wolf is licking my paw.........*>_<"

I love them all here. Amazing work.
It's almost surprising there's no Robert/Catelyn fanship after this artwork ^^

I don't know now, but back then there weren't many Catelyn fans in general :P

To his credit King Robert probably WOULD laugh at that one, if he caught the joke (as opposed to his homicidally-prideful spouse, whose punishment would probably … well help make 'Medieval' a dirty word to put things mildly).

 Queen Cersei: "What in Seven Hell are those scruffy, dirty, disgusting creatures?"

 Lord Eddard: "Direwolves, your grace."

Queen Cersei: "I meant the ones with TWO legs."

I love ASOIAF, and I love watercolor, so this is just awesome to me. Really great job you did with this scene. I love Roberts jovial expression with maybe just a touch of lust for Cat thrown in, and Cersei's look of superior indifference.

Hahaha this is just what I imgined when I read this part... the only difference I pictured Cersei in red (with being a Lannister and all)

but, yes, this is mostly what crossed my mind

Cersei is frequently described wearing green, to match her green eyes. Only rarely she is desribed as wearing red (in truth, none that I can remember.) Thanks anyway! ;)

She's exciting to read (all Lannisters are). She's wicked and strong-minded, and I can feel her rage and her inner fire :)

Ahah, why should I kick you? Besides, Sansa and Sandor are favourite of mine as well! :heart: The characters I really can't stand are Arya, Daenerys and Bran (this last one, mostly because his POVs will become very boring).

You will read A LOT of Jaime in the future. Eheh... ;)
