A Game of Thrones

So I was watching that HBO series "Game of Thrones", and I decided to do some quick digital sketches of some of the characters. I was actually inspired to do so after seeing ultra-talented illustrator Sam Bosma's drawings of the characters from the books. Now, I've only started reading the 1st book, so my drawings are based on the TV series, not the literary source, but I thought I'd share them with you anyway.

While working on these drawings, I tried to imagine them as interior illustrations from an old paperback from the 1950's. They were drawn entirely digitally, in Sketchbook Pro on my mac.

First up: Jon Snow, the "bastard of Winterfell":



Jamie Lannister: "the Kingslayer":



Catlyn Stark (formerly Catlyn Tulley):



And finally, that creepy mom and the 10 year old breast-feeding kid. These two seriously creeped me out:

Lysa is a creepy other, no doubt. And likely insane.

Good artwork.

Oops. Typo. She's a creepy "mother" not an "Other". Although for as creepy as she is, she might as well be an "Other".

Done digitally? Seriously? If you wouldn't have told me, I wouldn't believe it! Personally I could never get the hang of Sketchbook Pro. Looks like I'll have to try again!

Thanks, everyone. I enjoyed watching the series very much. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to draw some more portraits from Game of Thrones soon.
