Game of Thrones (Spoilers) by AdamWithers Game of Thrones (Spoilers) by AdamWithers
Personal piece, 2014; Pencil, Photoshop PS5.

***UPDATED: Now current through all of season 4***

***PLEASE! For the sake of anyone looking or reading the comments - NO SPOILERS! We can talk about what's happened so far, but not the stuff that hasn't happened yet.***

This piece is current as of the finale of Season 3 - PLEASE don't talk about the fates of characters in the second half of the third book or beyond. It ruins things for everybody.

So, this was an idea that I was shocked - SHOCKED - had not been done yet. When it occurred to me, I scoured the Googles to see whether anybody else had done it, but nothing came up. So here I am, sitting on this goldmine idea. In case anybody isn't getting the reference, this piece is an homage to the classic John Byrne cover to Uncanny X-Men #141 - the start of the Days of Future Past storyline. With the upcoming movie, you'll probably be seeing this cover more often.

I selected Daeni, Tyrion, and Jon for the front because they seem to have the strongest "Plot Armor." Whatever else might appear to happen to them, I suspect we'll be seeing them through to the end of the story. Though god knows I could be wrong. That Martin SOB loves toying with our emotions.

Here's a detail compilation of the headshots from the poster without all the postery effects:

I didn't originally, but the longer I sat with it, the more I felt it was necessary.

The Hound definitely is. Sandor Clegane might not be, if you catch my drift.

That's awesome!!! I'm so confused by HBO's storyline of Catelyn though, so different from the books :/

AdamWithers Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  Professional Artist
It isn't THAT much different. We're just missing one big twist, which is probably coming in time. We'll see.

It's just that Michelle Fairley has said in various interviews that her character will definitely not return to the show :/ Hopefully she's lying.

We'll see. Hard to know how they do some of that story without her, but who knows? They've done a really good job of cutting around some characters seamlessly. And yet, they've also done a good job of making sure that the most important characters/moments go off as they should (more or less), so it could go either way.

You know, I debated doing that. I really did. But ultimately I went with fidelity to the source image I was paying homage to. I still go back and forth as to whether it would have been better with her out front or not.
