as Arya Stark
from „A Song of Ice and Fire“
series of books by G.R.R.Martin and „Game of Thrones“
, a TV show based on the books.ACEO
(Art Cards, Editions and Originals) - 2.5 x 3.5“ / 63 x 89 mm.
Not the most original title, but hey, it's appropriate for this work, right? When I started this, it was going relatively fast and smooth and I thought: oh, this will only take couple of days. And exactly one month + 1 day later...here it is
Don't you just love it when some part you finished doesn't look right and then you decide to do some corrections later, and you do them, and you do some more, and some more and you end up with that part looking even worse than in the beginning.
There's hardly any likeness and the right expression left...
Arya is one of my fav characters. Not nearly as innocent and harmless as a girl of her age should be, but nonetheless she's a great and interesting character and the only one who has POV chapters in every book.
About 2 more half-body ACEOs and the rest are just portraits. For this little GoT collection of mine I don't really care how well known and how much (ab)used the refs are already, they're just what I want, but I think there will be couple you haven't seen drawn/painted for million times already.
When thinking about all the detail work I put into this, the scan is just... GoT ACEO collection so far:
