Streets of Braavos

A Song of Ice and Fire - Arya in the streets of Braavos. Or of King's Landing. Haven't decided yet.


This was my first attempt at doing something more "painterly" with Photoshop - it's from a few months ago. I used photo reference for the buildings... some very old National Geographic issue. I just remember it was some city in Algeria.

Lovely! Though looks more King's Landing-ish to me dunno why.

Hehe, to be completely honest, I decided it was Bravoos only when I was done with it. It could very well be KL, too. And thanks for your comments!

Oh well I just sort of imagined Braavos a bit brighter,spacious,Venetian idk.. but KL in all these brownish tones of a dirty over-cramped medieval western-european city... but that's just me :)

This is amazing!

You're really talented; I love the all over sepia tones, and how they make the streets feel dirty and old. And how small the child (Arya, I presume?) is compared to the buildings.

:+fav:

"El Casbah" (pronounce : El Kassb'a)

Da come Martin descrive Braavos, l' ho sempre immaginata come una sorta di Venezia orientaleggiante...in effetti il tuo diesgno potrebbe rappresentare benissimo sia una delle sue stradine fra i canali sia un vicolo di Approdo del Re. Invidia verde per come l'hai colorato con photoshop...se questo era un primo tentativo, davvero complimenti, ne hai tirato fuori una bella luce.
