Tyrion and His Wildlings

Tyrion and his Wildlings from the Game of Thrones RPG by Gaurdians of Order.

I was never paid for this piece. None of the artists in the book got paid either, even though some did several pieces at several hundred dollars each. The company published and sold thousands of copies (some signed & numbered collectors editions selling for $100 each). The company went out of business and sold off the game to White Wolf. White Wolf does not feel obligated to pay the artists.

So, help me recoup the money I lost and buy a poster print today! ;)

My sympathies on your not getting paid for your hard work, the list of good artists that have been screwed over is long and famous - including Michelangleo or Sean Keating.

It's very good picture. Tidings about Guardians of Order unfair became commonly known amidst Game of Thrones fans. I asking you for permission to use this picture for illustrating some pages in a russian wikipedia of ASOIAF. Of course I'll insert a link to your gallery on DeviantArt and write about the author in picture description.

Very professional work. Sorry to hear you didn't get paid, because you certainly deserved to be.
Great picture, but I have to point out that his mercenaries were NOT Wildings, but rather Hill Men. Wildings live north of the Wall, and Hill Men in the mountains of the Vale.
Great work with the details and colors of this print, you really captured the essence of the Game of Thrones books in this painting.

wow that is sad and just the reality of the way the world works...
awsome. the dwarf was my favorite character. he was the vanguard for this battle i remember! awsome in deed.
hope you get your justice for your work my friend. hope whatever the people that used you buy with their money ends up taking away something dear to them muhahaha.

:clap: great work! i might suggest that you dont allow dowloading the pic..there are others too in the web who like to "steal" large pic files to make prints on their own..and sell those in good price:D

thought o ftaking it up through george r r martin himself? its damaging to what amounts to his brand reputation also after all...while you are at it tell him to get off his arse and finsih the bloody book ;)

Right, he really does!

Not much any of us could really do at the end of it all. GoO is from Canada, and none of us really feel like we'd ever get our money. So we've moved on.

Thanks for the favs!

np :) at the rate he is going i am going to have to write the next installment on his behalf just so me mrs gets to finish reading it. He doesnt look too healthy atm.

usually when a companies assets are sold, its debts have to be paid too. and if the company is bought outright, its debts become those of its new owner. i could be wrong.

you're right, but the problem is compounded by the fact that the company was outside of U.S.

I can't remember where I left off in the series. They're pretty hefty tomes!
