A clash of faces by Pojypojy A clash of faces by Pojypojy
So, I started this project a while ago, with the intention of putting my visualization of the characters from A Clash of Kings on paper before season 2 of Game of Thrones began (and it's obvious I didn't succeed at this). I also realized that the characters that are introduced in ACoK don't exactly match the ones that are introduced in the series (i.e. Roose Bolton makes his appearance in the first book). So I decided to do both. And then I realized that that character list just kept getting longer, so I stopped at 16 and called it a day. That's why you get no Reeds and probably a bazillion other characters I forgot to put in here, so... please don't ask, k?

Character bashing in the comments will not be tolerated. Be a lover, not a hater!

I just stumbled across this site because I'm a huge GOT fan and have noticed some discrepancies between the character descriptions in the book and the actors that they cast. Just as a general comment, I haven't seen any Renly Baratheons and I would really like to see someones rendition that is closer to the book's description. In the television series he's a toothpick (think the chest shaving scene with Lauris Tyrell) whereas in the book he is supposed to share the physical traits of Robert. Just a thought.
Fantastic job on the Greyjoys, salty iron born bastards. You nailed Roose Bolten too with his watery eyes and pale skin. Really like the Stern Stannis too. Really, just great job on all.

I love that Roose in particular, you made him very unsettling without gunning for the "sexy vampire" look that Tumblr always does. These are all really good. The only one I don't really like is Stannis, he seems way too relaxed and handsome. He needs some dark circles around his eyes, maybe a bit of a frown. Imagine that one really strict teacher you had.

Great characters! I love how they are your own interpretation from the books and not based on the TV series :D
Dragonpops Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2015
Nice facial studies! Roose looks slightly like a corpse with all the fading outlining, but otherwise, looking splendid, the lot of them! :D

Is it weird that I find Brienne 10x more attractive than all of the other girls/women? Her bone structure here is amazing and you are absolutely fantastic at capturing her beautiful blue eyes! Somehow I find her more womanly compared to the others who look so young and girlish. I just love Brienne...
Quick question, where is Ygritte's pug nose?
Great job!

Heh... I missed that first Reek in the show!

I love the way you draw them all and the way you coloured them, it looks like a watercolor painting 0w0. I really love it.

gagnorblu Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
you made Dolorous Edd look pretty accurate.
Ragnarok6664 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You sure made Brienne & Asha striking :)
Skidmark117 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
Asha looks exactly how i pictured her. Stannis looks like a hard ass, nice job! and Reek, jesus christ that guy freaks me out. Well done!
valaldria Featured By Owner May 21, 2013
these are truly amazing, i especially love Aeron in this, exactly how i imagined him, i know you said don't ask for other characters but i think lots of people would love another of these if you have time.

Your Ygritte and Brienne are so perfect! Love them!

I like your Asha Greyjoy.
MichaelSwordblade Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Professional General Artist
The best renditions I have seen!!
Exalmus Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013
My only complaint is Roose Bolton, he seems too old, and doesn't seem unsettling enough. He seems like a normal old man. Otherwise, these are GREAT! Spot on!!!
DarklyWhite Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013
Dolorous Edd : D!
yellowis4happy Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahhh, yes. I'm really enjoying your Stannis and your Greyjoys. And little Pod is adorable!
pixiefh Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
Had to log in to say this is really cool. I love how you've portrayed each of them in this media. Aeron Greyjoy is spot on with that seaweed in his hair. I think Jaquen is my favorite though! Stannis and Brienne are also done particularly well.
BeatrixBonnie Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012
Some of these are exactly like I've immagined them!
Khaz-Lycan Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012
Well your prediction of Stannis Baratheon was amazingly accurate.
Likeness aside- these all look AMAZINGAGFFGDGAHDGHJFGAGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Szczery Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012
Wow. They look just like they should, as they were described, without any weird 'interpretations'. That's something fresh here, on DA. Good job!
(Especially like Stannis, Roose Bolton and Edd here)

Simply amazing, you've done awesome work here. Roose, Stannis, and Asha stand out for me most of all, but Brienne turned out great as well, and can't forget Podrick :P

Thank you!
LostOddity Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012
I love how you've included some of the less common characters like Dolorous Edd! He needs more art, lol. XD

Their faces really suit how I expected them to look, too, especially Ygritte, Stannis, Asha, Brienne and Margaery.

Thank you!
sketa Featured By Owner May 30, 2012
Love it.
Is that Reek supposed to be the original Reek or the "Winterfell Reek"?
Pojypojy Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012  Professional General Artist
Winterfell Reek!
MorwenElinor Featured By Owner May 27, 2012
Asha looks great here, I love her nose, it makes her look like some kind of falcon or hawk. That suits her personallity I think. And I always imagined Melisandre with heart shaped face, but this looks better than I had in my mind.
The rest is also greatm just to these two I'm most drawned into.
