Girls of Westeros - Asha

I wanted to make a series titled "Strong Girls of westeros" but then when I was making the list of the characters I realized that there really are no "weak" women in Asoiaf serie. They are all, every single one amazingly strong in so many different ways. Which is amazing in a world where well written female characters are so rare. So it became just "Girls of westeros". 'Cause it was redundant.

Another absolute favorite character of mine. Gee, I'm almost ridiculous. I just love them all. XD

Remember: NO character bashing or GTFO.
And I still draw the characters the way I imagined them to be when I read the books. Keep that in mind.

Great... finally, a picture of Asha that is accurate and fits her description in the books. It's annoying enough to see her in the series, but those fanarts where she lacks her nose... and ends up looking soft... brrr. That's just not Asha.

Only difference for me is that I imagine her hair to be even shorter :D
Other that that, this is nearly perfect.
This is my big problem with most ASOIAF fanart too. The characters aren't perfectly described on the page, so there's a lot of leeway on how precisely they look - but there is much about them that is spelled out on the page and has to be honored in the art. Asha's foremost physical characteristic is her big nose. I feel the same when Arya, Jon and Ned lack the long, solemn faces. Martin is explicit in certain descriptions.

This is almost exactly how I picture her in the books. She is definitely my favorite, great job!

I try to convince myself that Yara in the series is an original character that really has zero to nothing to do with Asha.

The only lines she delivered that were reminiscent of Asha were those in Winterfell :(

That´s how she is described in the books? (: I only know her in the series but she looks wonderful here! :heart: and she really sounds like a strong character!

She's described with short black hair and a sharp nose. I like her but in the serie.... I don't know, they changed it and I had a lot of problems with a few scenes, like the one when she calls Theon a "c*nt". They made her sound like a mysoginistic character and she is not.
dunno. I prefer her in the books.
