asoiaf: Sansa and Sandor by MathiaArkoniel asoiaf: Sansa and Sandor by MathiaArkoniel
Commissioned illustration of Sansa and Sandor from Chapter 29 of A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.

He squatted silently before her, a hulking black shape shrouded in the night, hidden from her eyes. Sansa could hear his ragged breathing. She was sad for him, she realized. Somehow, the fear had gone away.

The silence went on and on, so long that she began to grow afraid once more, but she was afraid for him now, not for herself. She found his massive shoulder with her hand. “He was no true knight,” she whispered to him.

Oh my goodness!  This is the best interpretation of that scene I have ever seen!  I have tried quick sketching it myself, but my skills are more of a hobby and seriously lacking.  

Thank you so much for creating this. You captured it perfectly!!!

Out of all the characters in the books, I think I love Sansa's development the most ♥

This is a beautiful picture of that scene...

Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment! Yes, I agree with you; Sansa's development is one that I love very much as well, though my favorite will always be Jaime. I love how George R.R. Martin could make me hate a character at first sight, and then slowly love them more and more. This applies to both Sansa and Jaime. I hated them both in the beginning of A Game of Thrones. They both eventually became favorite characters by the end of A Feast for Crows.

I'm not Jaime's biggest fan. I didn't really hate him (it was more Cersei for me). But Sansa, I really did hate her at the beginning, and I really do love and respect her now.
