A quick sketch of Slave!Jorah being his grumpy self! Note that I forgot his mask tattoo >.>; it was in the underlying sketch, but to be honest I wasn't even sure it was accurate and I didn't feel like going upstairs to check soooo maybe I'll edit this sometime later. Or maybe not.

Cool Ser Jorah! :aww:

 I think the only possible answer to that title is YES (it's amusing, but seeing this image has made me realise just how much in common this poor old Bear Knight has in common with Stannis Baratheon).

I called for a knight, but you're a bear, all black and brown and covered with hair.

Very well done! Different than the cannon version I have in my head, but still awesome to see your interpretation.

The sloping shoulders do seem a little off, though. I pictured Jorah with broad, strong shoulders. No gut either, as he's described as bearish but "fit".

Thanks for sommenting! I just went for the most bear-like look I could think of, lol.

Kinda reminds me of Jet Black from Cowboy Bebop... But then again, Jet Black is who came to mind when I read the Jorah character for the first time. Sorta Oyaji-ish.

Oooh I didn't think about Jet tbh, though he was my favorite character in Bebop... ah, memories *__*

NEEDS MOAR HAIR!

On his body, not his head! Still, this is the best and most properly Jorah-like pic I've seen. Proper belly.

Jorah is a professional brooder!

non so, io sono proprio traviata da Iain Glen, travita nel più turpe senso del termine, temo, ma canon!Jorah disegnato così è perfetto! e a parte la "realistica" forma fisica amo il colore di azzurro che hai scelto per il cielo!XD

Ma lo sai che io invece no? XD Cioè, per me tv!Jorah e canon!Jorah sono proprio due entità differenti... non è solo per l'aspetto, ma anche per l'atteggiamento che mi ero figurata in modo del tutto diverso (anche se probabilmente una cosa tira l'altra), quindi non corro il rischio di sovrapporli XD
Nachan's avatar
fortunata tu!XD no, ma è vero sono due creature proprio differenti differenti, ognuna con i suoi pro e contro, ma io purtroppo sono veniale e sensibile al fascino dei rosci, quindi ho abdicato per il tv!Jorah!XD

I blame Ian Glaine for warping my idea of Jorah.
But this makes me happy. He's older and not as attractive as they made him on the show. I approve :D

Thank you! As I was telling *Nachan I basically see tv!Jorah and canon!Jorah as two different characters, it's not just the physical appearance, it's also their... demeanour? Idk, the idea of Jorah I get from the books is so distinctly different from what we got on the show that I never got confused. (Bran, on the other hand... It took me years to learn to picture him as auburn haired rather than dark brown and now THANK YOU, SHOW! XD)

TV!Jorah makes me want to ship Dany/Jorah ._. .. now that Drogo's dead I mean :XD:
And I can't imagine ANY of them except Sansa with red hair.

Yeeeah, it's going to be hard to make the audience believe that Dany is totally NOT attracted to him XD

Wow, I always imagined Jorah with a more conventional triangle shape musculature but I suppose this could be more realistic. I dont know, he looks more like a pissed off construction worker than the Iron hard knight I always got from the books. Good artwork as always though. Keep it up!

Hee, I guess we're going to have to agree to disagree on this one - I always pictured him as having more of a, well, bear-like/strongman physique. As someone pointed to me, this is the body of a guy who fights bears on a mountain XD
berost's avatar
Thats a good point, but I wasn't really refering to the bodybuilder physique. Imeant something more along the lines of Frank Miller's Batman in the Dark Knight returns, bulky, but still bigger in the shoulders and chest than through the waist. I'm sorry I can't provide a link to what I'm talking aboutI don't know how (turns away in shame. Anyways you certainly make a good argument
