Game of thrones
I loved the tv series I just had to read the books and I have to say they're even better if that's possible! Currently reading a storm of swords pt 1 and I've come across some gorgeous Game of thrones artwork on here and on devientart but not nearly enough to quench my thirst haha.
So I was wondering if anyone else had come across any particularly beautiful illustrations inspired by the books because I just love seeing how other people envisage the characters/places I'd love to do my own versions some day but college leaves no time unfortunately... anyway yeah just curious if I'd missed any artwork because I know it's a really popular series with good reason hehe

Some of those look like badly done revisions of
Michael Komarck's calender stuff.

Fantasy is a tough sell on me and I love Game of Thrones. I can see why some people hate it. Probably for the same reasons I like it.
Those images are tacky btw. He over rendered the details in alll the wrong places. He does not know how to use reference. He is a great example of how not to draw.

how not to?
oh you mean the other guy not komarck, his stuff looks amazing lol

I really liked setting and casting in the series, characters are really well-played, except for some rare tacky bits,
but narrative wise it blows so much, end of season 1 is just a big piece of what
won't bother with the books
on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace

Yeah I meant John Picacio. I keep seeing the ignorant lighting, random hiarchy of detail, misunderstanding of the human form, bullshit textures and elements that look like they are from other paintings. It looks like a collage of Boris Valejo fan art. I'm guessing the publisher wanted fake it from where Michael Komarck left off, so they hired a wannabe.
Michael Komarck's work is pretty good btw.
EDIT: I just looked at his site and he's usually not this bad. I think it's probably just horrible art direction.
