Halls of The Kraken by TomSegal Halls of The Kraken by TomSegal
Here it is in its full golden glory.
(After about four months of laying around in my works folder.. Been working on it on and off)

Its both a depiction of The Drowned God from G.R.R.M's "A Song of Ice and Fire" and a god from one of my roleplaying games.
GRRM has kindly uploaded it to his website - [link]

What do you think?

Note: A friend of mine (Bar Belfer) noticed that the background above the middle of the lowest tentacle resembles a little girl's face.
I never intended for this to happen and I find that fact very interesting.
Heres a picture for those who can't find it - [link]

The full extensive gallery is at [link] including sketches, while [link] contains a list of my clients.

Hmm, I was just browsing about for a pic of a kraken I could get a tattoo of. I am a Greyjoy by heart. It's a big part of me. This one is perfect in many ways. Down to the fact that this actually IS the Drowned God. Can I steal or can I in some way get you to make one just for me hmmmmm ? ;)

Beautiful, although a slight detail, only its right side is holding on them columns, its pose looks a bit artificial because of that, I'd expect the body to be bent a bit to the unsuported side. Other than that, fantastic modelling :)

Thanks, thing is that this is an old pic, I'm not really happy with it but I'll just leave it as it is. I have a new WIP now, hopefully I'll finish it in a month or two... (It won't take me long to finish it, its just that I'm busy studying :) )

Thank you :) It makes me feel great getting such comments as I can imagine some stranger that never even met me sitting infront of his/her computer which is located on the other side of the earth, and smiling because of something I made.

Thanks :)

I thought about making the scene where Arya enters the House of Black and White, with the god's statues rising and sinking in the mist. What do you think?

Also, I don't reckon its ever been depicted by anyone before.

The purple's supposed to be a broken pillar with some odd lightning on it.

Looking back at your gallery, i find this piece to still be very interesting, there's so many hidden things in it, not sure if you actually intended it.

What's in the background? particles?
The girl's face is not the only face i find in the image

The clearest ones are the girl and the demon (circled to the rightest), other are blurry but still visible with a little bit of focus.

(I... don't have the experience to really appreciate what you've done here fully, except mebbie with the columns. But it looks great. ^-^ ) Very nice work on the texture for the critter.
