It's funny, because I painted this for the Game of Thrones card game which came out years before the show. And I noticed how the pillars in the throne room reminded me of this piece: sedone.deviantart.com/art/Para….
That's... one hell of a coincidence. Also, you painted the Game of Thrones card games?! I have it and love it with a passion. I had no idea that you were the one who designed them. That's fucking amazing!
This is so beautiful. I love the lines of her face (I'm especially fond of the nose--I love good noses in art ), and the way she's looking straight at the viewer suggests a delicate strength. She looks like she's seen a lot--and would have lots of stories to tell--except that she's learned the power of silence and feels things too deeply to trivialize them in the telling. Really--just beautiful.
