Cersei Lannister by suburbanbeatnik Cersei Lannister by suburbanbeatnik
I just finished reading George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones," the first book in his "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. His prose is compulsively readable, even if it's not the sort of thing I usually like to read; his heroes are a bit on the tiresome side, but his villains are so amusingly over-the-top I decided to draw one. Here's Miss Incest Queen, Cersei Lannister, who bangs her brother and bullies poor little ingenues and murders inconvenient prime ministers. I admit, her costume doesn't quite fit in the with the alternate 15th century England Martin was trying to create, but putting her in a houppelande and a hennin didn't quite seem to fit this character. Thus, she's wearing a quasi-Victorian styled RenFaire corset with Clyde Caldwell style jewelry and huge mutated Arwen sleeves. It kind of makes me wonder what the costume designer will come up with for the upcoming HBO series...

Edit: I decided to add her name, a decorative border, and added a little skull-and-crossbones over the suspiciously bubbling goblet. By the way, if anyone wants to color this digitally, that's fine with me. I'd be interested to see what you all would come up with!

I'm sure the reason why she's in such a foul mood most of the time is because she's trying to fit her 38DD bosoms into such a tightly-laced corset. It's not easy being the queen!

very true :giggle: How does she manage it? She must spend hours each morning stuffing them in with the help of every handmaiden in the palace :XD: They must have to use tape or something :D

That totally makes sense to me. Hey, they have telescopes and lifts in Westeros, why not duct tape? ;)

:giggle: Why not? A queen has to do what a queens gotta do and if that involves impossible stuffage into corset, that by all mean, give her the duct tape :XD:
