“Have you ever seen the Iron Throne? The barbs along the back, the ribbons of twisted steel, the jagged ends of swords and knives all tangled up and melted? It is not a comfortable seat ser. Aerys cut himself so often men took to calling him King Scab, and Maegor the Cruel was murdered in that chair. By that chair, to hear some tell it. It is not a seat where a man can rest as ease.” Stannis Baratheon (A song of Fire and Ice by George RR Martin)
I had a vision a few weeks ago to make the Iron throne from Game of Thrones out of balloons. The most iconic image of that chair is of Ned Stark (the Hand of the King, played by #SeanBean), so here is my tribute to that amazing image.
DrawTheSimpsons, a tumblr account devoted to “Simpsonizing” well-known characters and people has given it’s signature treatment to Game of Thrones.
As you can see, this has been executed quite well as it’s easy to tell who’s who even without the labels! And don’t worry, we know you’ve noticed that a number of characters are missing– Arya, Ned, and Cersei to name a few–more images are coming soon!
Games of Thrones character Ygritte is featured in this fantastic piece of fan art by CGHUB artist jigokuen, who says he’s a fan of the books. As you can see the illustration comes with the following quote, “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”
This is quite exception fan art, so thought it should be posted. What do you think?
Here’s a pretty funny image which imagines a lunch meeting between George R.R. Martin and J.K. Rowling. Given the subject matter Martin’s been known to explore in his books it’s not surprising he might be a little confused here!
Check out this awesome piece of Game of Thrones fan art depicting the characters from season 1 in their very own Last Supper. How about Tyrion getting the honor of being front and center at this table? I think it fits!
