Inspired by the outstanding saga "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin, this work depicts a military victory of the House Stark, guided in battle by Robb.
I'm really honoured that Mr. George R.R. Martin's himself decided to host this work on his website. You can see it here: [link]

Acrylics, watercolours, coloured pencils on paper.

Incredible friggin' detail once again. I especially like how you drew the Stark wolf on the banner, Grey Wind chomping on someone, and the Lannister head rolling is a nice touch, although I do like the Lannisters I'm sorry to admit. Everything horrible keeps happening to the Starks, and I admit I admire the Lannisters for pulling off all they have. Although I will always hate Joffrey. Always. ;)

Also, the detail in the foreground of the piece and the more blended, vague background in the back looks great, and I think it is a nice touch as well. You have a wonderful style, and I'm glad I found your art.

Thanks again for your kind comment! I don't like the Lannister that much, but they are all greatly detailed character in the book. Well, I like Tyrion, to tell the truth... :)

You are most welcome; you deserve it.

I understand why you wouldn't like the Lannisters, and I see why you would like Tyrion. :D

armor details are stunning, i spent almost half an hour absorbing details til overload, got a sorta abstract feeling...it's kinda in line with how artists depicted events in similar times like from the war of the roses (one of the inspirations for this amazing saga) looking forward to more artwork whenever able!!!

What an incredibly clever cropping you used, with the horse's head... this creates such a strong dynamic, it makes the whole work look like an action shot, taken RIGHT there, in the middle of all of it... it makes the viewer want to stand aside, so that the chopped off head and doesn't land on top of them.... and to avoid the horse, stomping on them.

such an amazing work, with such powerful use of colour, yet again, and all the other things I said in the comment before...

I have to thank you again for taking the time to comment so extensively one of my pieces. It's a pleasure for me to read your words and to know you like my work, thanks again! :thanks:

Thank you for your words, I've been meaning to reply for ages, but always seem to run out of time. I truly believe that if someone goes through as much meticulous, heart-felt, intricate work, and put so much soul into a piece as you have, people must take the time to really understand what it is they love about it, why it affects them the way it does, and put it into words for the artist to know and feel their gratitude - after all, every piece of art that we love is a gift from its creator - another precious jewel for us to put into our mental treasure chest of beautiful things. So thank you back, for my jewels :)

Wow, I think I'll have to put your comment into a frame! Your words are encouraging and really appreciated! So you're really welcome and thanks again!

hahahaha, thank you for that - you made my super sucky day much less sucky :) i'd send you sydney sunshine, but it's night now, so you'll have to do with sydney moonshine instead (whichever kind). the crescent hangs horizontally here, rather than vertically, like back home, in europe, so i guess it's still worth sending! have a good day, Father Stone!
