Sansa and the Hound by Enife Sansa and the Hound by Enife
George R. R. Martin's characters.

Aaaand this is my third drawing of these two, i can't stop, until it's perfect, so there will supposedly be more :D This time i tried to give them a background, though i suck ass when it comes to backgrounds, so this is the best i could come up with now.
Sansa Stark and Sandor Clegane :) (*really mad with HBO for screwing this scene up in the series)

Definitely one of my favorite Blackwater pieces. The emotional side of Sandor and Sansa's compassion you've displayed here is often left out in other Blackwater artworks; most choose to make him look like a monster with a dagger at a young girl's throat instead of showing him as the broken man that he was being shown kindness and compassion from the only woman he probably ever cared for and who ever treated him as a human.

Yes, I've been looking forward to this scene so much and felt the lack of it very badly, it made me rather angry, they added sex, and forgot that the sex not happening is more important in a romance.

Sandor not raping Sansa is at least as important as Jaime vomiting over Brienne... - sometimes GRRM is so very romantic... the sweet little girl already pinned on her back with the knife at her throat sings a holy song and startles a lovesick man out of the planned rape - and the sweet man in her arms vomits all over the she-knight...

so very romantic.

I've seen some illustrations of this scene before, but I think you juis caught the essence of both Sansa and Sandor right there. I love it

Thank you!

I love this.  It's been a while since I read the books, could you tell me what scene this is?

In the second book, at its end after the Battle of the Blackwater, the Hound visits Sansa in her chambers and has a strange conversation with her about taking her away from King's Landing :)

Yep I agree.. Let's hope they make up for it with Joffrey's wedding

The Hound looks a little too young here. I thought he'd have at least twelve years on Sansa.

I always thought that according to timeline of events in the books that Sandor was a lot younger than he appeared in the show :dummy: I love how he is portrayed here.
This was an amazing scene (in the book :XD:), and you captured wonderfully :)

I love it ^^ Go you, Sandor!

Oh I was so so mad too that HBO screwed up that scene!!
I loved it so much in the books and I really hoped there will be a nice love story á la "Beauty and the beast" :D

Beautiful artwork!! And I love the background too :)

Awesome! I love the relationship between these two from the books.

I was quite annoyed with HBO screwing up their whole relationship. When Balish told Sansa how the Hound got his scar as opposed to the Hound himself, I was really annoyed.
Anomi-Lala Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012
Ah! I love them so much, and you drew them wonderfully once again (:
Scafloc29 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012
It is easy to forget thay the Hound is still a young guy. In the TV series he looks to be in his later thirties. And the books describe him so full of dark anger that I pictured also as 35 - 40.
However he is only 27 at the begin of the books. And that is how your picture shows him. Great work!
Enife Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012   Digital Artist
Thanks! :D It's great to see some people still know how old he actually is :)
Anomi-Lala Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012
Did you determine his age from being 12 when he killed his first man and adding the 15 years since Robert's Rebellions? Because I don't remember it being mentioned (: I love Sandor, such a well written character, imo.
Scafloc29 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
I found it on Sandor's wiki article [link] however there is no source listed for his birthyear.
I think in his story about his burned face Sandor mentions how many year he is younger than his brutal brother. And as Gregor's age is known we can determine Sandor's.
Emmanation Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is definitely a younger and more handsome version of Sandor than what is presented in the HBO series (no complaints here!). His pained expression is absolutely fantastic!
kathrynlillie Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012
Yeah, the Sansa/Sandor dynamic really got short changed in the show :( I love your progression of paintings of these two! Great expressions, and such beautiful details! For some reason I really love the bed. Lovely painting!
Valravna Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Very lovely. I love it so much.

Also, I know how you feel... I am mad about HBO screwing up a lot of scenes - like Dany and Drogo's wedding, like most scenes with Sansa and Sandor... and having -Petyr- or all people tell her the truth about his scar, making -him- tell her to not tell anyone lest Sandor would be sure to kill her.... What the faaaak man? XD

Anyways, a gorgeous piece! :heart: Can't wait for the others~~
