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

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!

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.
