Girls of Westeros - Brienne

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.

Brienne. BRIENNE.
Not sure if I like the way she came out in this speedpainting though. Front angle is difficult to handle.

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.

nice! gwen christie does a fantastic job in the show but she's really quite beautiful so it's very different from the books. this is more accurate.

Oooh.  She's got a Peter Cushing thing going on there.  I like it!
Much too pretty. She looks severe, but her face is well proportioned. Brienne is ugly with a capital u. Plus she looks like she's in her 40s. The character is 18 or 19.

She's a badass, nevertheless girly. She is a knight, not a princess, but still wants a knight on white stallion, considering her girly crush on Renly and then deep crush on Jaime. :P

Excuse me, but what is the shape/animal in this one? ;u; I can't quite tell.

a roaring bear, it's not that clear though, you're right.

Ahhh I guessed that, just wasn't sure. XD Great job though! Most people forget to include the freckles.
Great rendering. I think Briene is impossible to get a perfect sense of solo. I think you she has to be shown alongside someonne else to capture the physical nature of this complex and fabulous character.

You captured the 'um... Is that a man or....?' perfectly!

God, I really think you´re right, there are no not-interesting or not-strong females in GoT! :heart: As soon as I saw Brienne in the show, I knew I would like her! She really looks more like a man here than in the show but I guess she´s even more unfeminine in the books? anyway, I like it!! :) And she looks very strict and strong!

*_* she get better AND BETTER. She's so badass and strong and yet at the same time so naive and fragile. she's such a well rounded character and probably the closest thing to a "good character" you can find in westeros.

I loved her in the show by the way.

She gets even better? *_* Is that possible? :heart: But I guess she has to be strong when she´s so different from other women. She had to get used to how the others are treating her. D:
I can´t wait to see more of her in the next season. I would love to learn more about her, she only seemed fragile to me when her king died and when she didn´t know what to do with her life anymore.
But I really think the actress of her does a wonderful job! She´s so beautiful in her own way.

yes, she's just at the beginning of her journey and she need to face SO MANY THINGS so yeah, you'll see many sides of her and she'll expose more of herself and... I JUST CAN'T.... ALL THE BRIENNE FEELS
Someone give this woman all the awards!

Aww, then I can´t wait! :heart: (I really should start reading the books! XD)

Yeah, I love her in the show and the books! She looks a bit more feminine in the show, but she makes up for it by being really friggin' tall.
