“Vengeance.” His voice was soft, as if he were afraid that someone might be listening. “Justice.” Prince Doran pressed the onyx dragon into her palm with his swollen, gouty fingers, and whispered, “Fire and blood.”

Note: not exactly the same scene as in comment, because I wanted to represent Prince Doran in his better condition, on his throne, when he still could walk on his own… ;)

This scene and dialogue in the book was sooo thrilling v-v
It made me cry to see what they ... did to Doran in the tv-show.

Sadly it was true that they probably abandoned the idea to make the Dorne-subplot follow the same pattern of the book

Yes, the book has some outstanding moments, no doubt about it. Especially when it came to Dorne chapters. :)

Luckily, I'm not watching tv show for a couple of years now, so I really can't say nothing about it. But I believe you that they manage to screw everything up...the same reason I quit with GOT for good. ;)

Well.. to be honest I tends to make a more neutral view in reviews XD I like to pick both good and bad aspects of everything (a show, a book, a game etc...).
Concerning GoT I think that they made some bad choices, others were a bit forced by the fact they had to condensate a book plotline into a tv-show... but they also made also some choices that I feels works very well. Also, they manage to portray some characters that thanks to a very skilled actor-recitation gives much power and energy to a specific character. There are plenty, but among the many one of them is the character of Tywin Lannister... in the tv-show he's really superb and in a way is a more convincing character than the one of the book.

Dunno, honestly.
Last couple of seasons are really insulting my intelligence, cause everything is based on killings, porn, rapes and brutality. Think that in books there's more than just that. IMO there is more quality tv shows to watch and to true enjoy in it (such as Penny Dreadful & True Detective) than GOT. GOT simply became rubbish, and to be honest last two books of ASOIAF don't shine that bright as first three books in the series.

And, since I've met with Steven Erikson and his masterpiece "Malazan Book of the Fallen", I really, really don't care about GRRM and his ASOIAF anymore. GOT even less.

Hope this all doesn't sounds too negative for you. ;)

Your style is beautiful, and I like that You don´t draw the charactars from the movies but make Your own picture of them from the books!
First view reminded me somewhat of TLU (the last unicorn) style.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks a lot, mate, glad you like it! :D And, yes, I'm much more attached to ASOIAF books & their descriptions, than tv show. ;)
