Jaqen H'ghar by InTheArmsOfUndertow Jaqen H'ghar by InTheArmsOfUndertow
Jaqen H'ghar. Probably one of the most enigmatic characters in the ASOIAF series. Whisper any name to him and that person will be dead by next morning.

Ninjas + Hashashashins = Faceless Men.

As it was literally impossible to come up with a decent face for him, I decided to go for the lame, "mysterious cloak" look. But hey, look: I discovered how to use brushes. I feel like Neil Armstrong when he set foot on the moon.

Jaqen H'ghar and his awesomness belong to George R.R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire saga.

Thanks to Malena-sama for the tutorial on brushes!

Me alegro de que te guste, la verdad es que a mi no me gusta demasiado este dibujo...es que es imposible dibujar a Jaqen y que tenga un aspecto interesante! Como no podía imaginar su cara acabé cubriéndola con la capa, jaja...

I like his sneaky grin!

I'm still waiting for someone to draw a HAWT Jaqen in the bathtub scene.
Why has no one done this yet? Gah! :rage:

I know!! And it actually exists, Amoka drew it. The scene depicted Arya telling names to Jaqen, who's in the bathtub with water to the waist. it was hawt, I tell you. If I can find it I'll link it to you.

Here's one, [link] but I dunno, I don't like it. They're realistic but dead looking. I'd prefer something drawn in a more stylized way but more alive.

I'd draw it, but my male anatomy sucks, and needs a lot of work before I could tackle it. I can draw great breasts but terrible man bods. (Grumble.)

I cannot draw male butts, or legs of any gender, so that makes us almost sisters, haha.

Oh man you beat me to it. Its really awesome!! He IS the most enigmatic character, but hey whats a hashashashin? I must know.

The Idea I had for my version is quite different. However, yours actually exists, like in REALITY which makes me want to make mine exist too. I hope I get around to mine soon...

keep it uuuuup.

I'm glad you like it! The first version was totally different though. I drew him smiling, and with two coins in his eyes, like a dead man, but I couldn't get it right, and end up covering his face.

Uh, the hashashins were a religious sect from the Shia islam in the VIII century. They lived in like a fortress and had an organization similar to the Templars. They were said to be elite assassins that tried, by killing political figures, to bring down the Abbaside Caliphate. As you can imagine, "assassin" derives from the word "hashashin", and some people believe that "hashashin" takes after the drug, hashish. Dunno about that, though. Maybe they did smoke huge joints and then went to kill some guys for fun. Good times, good times!

I'm really looking forward to see what do you have in mind for Jaqen, don't give up on him!

hey,

thanks for the info, actually as I started reading I realized I had heard of some of it before, thought I can't remember where. In your deviation notes you have it written hashashashin. From personal experience I can't imagine that it would be very much fun to run about killing people while high, or run about at all.

You're welcome. If you have played Assassin's creed, you probably already knew most of it, only you didn't remember. And ugh yeah, I wrote hashashin incorrectly, there's one extra "hash" that shouldn't be there.
I'd suppose that when you are high the least thing you feel like doing is chasing around someone with a curved knife, but these guys were religious fanatics. Who knows what's in their heads...

Hola guapa! Cuanto tiempo!
Pues si, estoy contentísima de haber aprendido a usar las texturas y los pinceles de una vez, porque quería dejar a jaqen totalmente negro, sin arrugas, ni sombras, ni pliegues, y claro, quedaba muy soso con un fondo liso. Voy a seguir practicando :_D

I suppose Gregor could be sexy, but I'd also get squished if he so much as touched me and I believe that makes people considerably less sexy.

Thank you, but really, it was IMPOSSIBLE to give him a face. I tried to many and none looked like what I had in mind. It's the curse of the Faceless Men.

You know, I wanted to draw him too, but it IS hard to come up with a face for him. I love the way that he speaks though! So eloquent and mysterious! Seriously one of the most awesome characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading about! Great job!
