Fandom: Game of Thrones
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Daenerys

Medium: digital painting

Why this piece is awesome: A gorgeous portrait of Daenerys in regal finery, on the iron throne. The likeness is amazing and I love her complicated expression and that she looks so strong here, as many portraits just show her as pretty. She's very much a queen, here.

Artist Website/Gallery: aquiles-soir on DA
Why this piece is awesome: This is a really strong picture of Sansa, later in the series, when she's seen too much and toughened up considerably. I like that she's strong rather than pretty, and that you can see how cold it is up in the North from her reddened nose - Winter is Coming, after all. Great subtle use of colour, especially in her eyes. Definitely worth enlarging for the details.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a really strong portrait of Khal Drogo. I love the in-your-face 3D-ness of it, and the details of his hair, and the tatt and pecs and the ridiculous beard. And hi, Jason! A bonus for me, as a die-hard SGA fan. :)

Medium: Traditional art, finished in photoshop ("a combination of traditional and digital. I did my drawing in black ink and added some texture and value with black water color. Then when I went to color it in photoshop, I added additional texture by putting a black and white high res image of a piece of paper with marks on it over everything and set that layer to overlay.painting.")
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Angela Rizza on DA
Why this piece is awesome: I love this artist's work a lot - the coloring's rich but subdued, and the inkwork is a great mix of skill and quirkiness. The likenesses are excellent, and I especially like how huge and impressively "other" the direwolves are - when you read the books you know they're much bigger than normal wolves, but of course on TV they never manage to get them quite large enough. Enlarge the pic for all the details.

Why this piece is awesome: ending with my favorite couple and an absolutely gorgeous piece. The loose style enhances the idea of them flowing together and the artist wonderfully captured their expressions of love and happiness. The muted tones, light and shadow and glow create a nostalgic feel, like it could be a memory of happier times.

Why this piece is awesome: the muted colors and strong lines and patternwork give this and all the artists GOT/ASOIAF work a medieval feel that's perfectly appropriate for the story. I love their body language in this as well.

Why this piece is awesome: I love this sketchy, loose watercolor style, somewhere between full cartoon and realism. I also love the ways the portraits subtlety connect, tying the characters to each other.

Why this piece is awesome: No actual spoilers here unless you have't caught up with the show, since it has now passed the books.This was originally done in 2014 but the artist has updated it through the end of season 6 I'm not familiar with the comic this is modeled after but I love the idea and the execution. The bold lines and dynamic pose really grab attention and I love the expressions of the characters. Also, considering pervading fan theories, this seems almost prescient.

Why this piece is awesome: I'm covering Game of Thrones this month, and true confession, I've never watched the show, just bits and pieces on YouTube. That has not stopped me from developing favorite characters though, and that's pretty much who I'll be showcasing this month. Alicexz is as fantastic artist who creates vibrant, kinetic work and this portrait of Sansa is no different. The color scheme compliments that gorgeous red hair but it's the resolute expression that really makes this portrait. I feel like her survival might have been a surprise but looking at that expression, it shouldn't be.

Why this piece is awesome: Oops - I got caught up and didn't notice July was becoming August - but here's my last Game of Thrones piece as it's still July in parts of the world. This is a very accomplished portrait, and there's a video of the drawing process - hang in there until the end as there's a bonus suprprise in the vid that you don't see in the picture on DA. The link to the video's on the DA site, but I'll give it here as well: time-lapse video here. I love watching how artists work like this; it always seems magical.

Why this piece is awesome: A clever artwork that juxtaposes the faces of Jaime and Cersei, twins in canon. I like how it shows the similarities and differences in their features, and their ruthless expressions. The subdued colour scheme also works well.

Why this piece is awesome: I'm still in SGA fandom so Jason Momoa's a big favourite, and this is a great, dramatic portrait of  Khal Drogo. I like that the focus is on his face not his muscles, and his hair and beard-thing are very nicely detailed.

Why this piece is awesome: Tyrion's a favorite GoT character of mine, and this is a great drawing - very detailed and dramatic. Yes, it's a near exact copy of a photo reference, but it's still beautifully done, and I love how the textures of the leather and fabric of his tunic are captured - it pays to click through to the high-res version.
