Oh wow...a Faceless Man?

He isn't an official faceless man.
The original art description was more about a jealousy then a paid assassination. :)

A VERY good effect with the knife and think it has a good touch, but a mixed message. Is it a husband discovering an affair or an assassin going to kill them both (in which case, the knife would probably be better reversed). Still, got to love the effect of this piece!

Ok lemme give this a go...sun and spear drapes, House Martell....Poisoned Blade, Dornish are notorius for that kind of stuff...I'll give it a go and say...this guy is a member of the Sand Snakes revolt, the two in the reflection are Arianne and Arys Oakheart. He saw them going at it, turned around, told Prince Doran, therefor being the "someone told", that ruined Arianne's attempt to kidnap and crown Myrcella. Am I close? =)

Nice btw, like the chalky feel, lovely colors, though, the knife is EXTREMELY reflective..maybe a bit more than realism would allow.

For this one I was not given specific characters only that the card was for the house Martell. :)

The knife's reflectivity is way pushed so you can see the lovers. Because the card is a character card the emphasis is on the Spy not what he is witnessing (plot card or event card would be the event). I chose to use a reflection so that I could keep the spy the main focus. Also the print size is really small so I have to compose each card accordingly.

Thanks for the comment!
