    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

    I'm also a big fan of these books. There are several characters that I would like to draw but havn't gotten around to doing yet I'm nearing the end of Feast for Crows

    Hmmm.....

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

    I'm in the middle of book 4 right now. I haven't seen much art, sadly the books themselves have super boring and badly crafted covers. I did see an anthology book called something like The Art of a Song of Ice and Fire, but the art in it was pretty awful.

    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.

    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.
