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!!!

This is beautiful! You've captured the atmosphere really well! I love the use of colours and lighting, and the detail in Sansa's dress and Sandor's scars. Well done! <3
