ta-daaaaan!
A Song of Ice and Fire fanart... or sort of!
I'm sure everybody knows what I'm talking about (the recent HBO serie Game of thrones gave a certain notoriety to the books too), in case you don't know google is your bff!XD
Btw, I started reading the books in 1999 (yes, I'm THAT old!) and now I'm going thrugh a second reading, after more than ten years. It is amazing just like the first time.

So I did this little drawing, rather conceptual, imo: Lyanna Stark with the crown of Queen of Love and Beauy, the crown that Rhaegar Targaryen offered to her, bleeding like in one of the vision Ned Stark had during his detention in the Red Keep.

The moment when it was clear things were going downhill, or something like that, basically...
ah, her right arm looks a little too short, but let's pretend it's the angle, ok? XDDD yay!

I started reading the books after seeing the first two seasons, so I'm wondering; how do you like the show compared to the books? Are there any characters you're especially pleased/displeased with?

Mmmmh, I have to say, I STRONGLY prefer the books to the show. But it is quite obvious with me, since I started reading ASOIF almost 13 years ago!:P For the rest, I find they did a pretty decent job with almost everyone on the show, imo. I really like how they started showing some of Theon's flaws and weakness before than in the books (Theon is one of my favorite!). I'm not so fond about some general choices they made, like adding a lots of sex scene instead of showing Sansa's character development FOR EXAMPLE, or adding that random lady Talisha (or how was her name...?) but, you know, audience and stuff, so... Really, I'm pretty cool with it, first season in particular looked really well made to me. I'm just curious to see how they will manage the third season since things stars to get more and more complicated at this point!XD

I also prefer the books, although I am in love with the show. I love the complexity of the books and how even the smallest characters have depth and backstory.
My favourite character is Asha, so I guess we both have a soft spot for Greyjoys. It annoys me though that they changed her name in the show to Yara. But I do love her representation on the show.
Overall I like that they haven't cast the show full of 'hollywood hot' people.

Indeed! Almost all my favorite characters are the Greyjoys!!!:D They are like viking/pirates and come from this hard, cruel and obscure place that really shaped their life and view of things, something which really conquered me!:D
I love Asha too! I can't help but call her Asha in the show too, lol.
Yeah, great casting for the characters, I'm really pleased!:)
