I love your style of drawing and the stillness created by the still waters. One can almost hear echoes of sounds in the forest :).

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Thank You for this scene. This is something, what I want to watch again and again and again.

I love Sandor an I hope we meet him in The Winds of Winter.

being a sansan lover I really love this
your style, the essence and colours, everything is so perfect my soul is eager to dance to your artworks :D

Poignant what coulda shoulda woulda been.
red20 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
I wholeheartedly agree with the first comment, in fact I do have moist eyes right now, and I cannot stop looking at it, turning it over and over.
You filled this up to the brim with emotion, and you did such a fantastic job.
I love the different colouring of the two sides, it almost seems as if Sansa’s side is more real with its warm colours, and Arya’s side is the reflection in the water.
Or maybe that’s just because I wish it was … ;)

On a different note, while I absolutely love and enjoy the Game of Thrones series by HBO, I am not entirely happy with the cast of Sandor, I wish he was portrayed by a younger, handsomer actor. But we can’t always have what we wish for, now can we? Hehe
GigiHugo Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
I can't believe how much information and detail you're able to convey in a single picture and make it so poetical, so beautiful.
Onska12 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012
This is absolutely amazing! I love the detail and the implications, and I just can't stop staring.

SwiftSnowmane Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
'Birdwatching' is extremely pre-Raphaelite (as per its inspiration), while this one reminds me not only of early 1900s illustration styles, but also of posters from the 1970s (especially some Tolkien posters from that period). I mean this as a huge compliment, since I am a great fan of those styles.

As always, seeing something new in your artwork every time I look at it... :)
Karinta Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Student General Artist
Hm. Very interesting.
Veganotron Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012
Gel pens? :O First time I see art drawn with those. It almost looks like the picture is glowing! :D
This truly is brilliant and original, and the details are simply amazing. :clap:

Watching you from now, with all my pleasure.

MoonShinersDaughter Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012
This is very beautiful I'm amazed at how perfectly you mirrored the two images, and the colors invoke such a mysterious feeling about the forest. But I'm curious as to what the story is behind it?
bubug Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
Thank you so much, I have to, however, point out, that the mirror reflection is not drawn, it's just a matter of one or two clicks in a graphics program, efect very easy to get, so therefore I can't take the credit for it.
Oh, the story behind it... It's one of the most powerful and heartbreaking scenes of "A Song of Ice and Fire" and if you really want to know it, just reach for George R. R. Martin's novel and disappear for the world for a while :)
coolcrowe Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
Nevermind, it just clicked. Fantastic.
coolcrowe Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
Hi, I've read the books but can't identify the scene you reference... could you give a hint without spoiling anyone who doesn't know? :) Beautiful work.
MoonShinersDaughter Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
Well computer programs are really all greek to me, so I still think its pretty sweet that you can manipulate the image in such a way.
And if I dissapear from the world, who else will wreak havoc in my place? D:
bhut Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012
This is strange. And also beautiful. Very arthurian too, I should add. (Though that is obviously a different fandom.)
bobsmith-730 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012
If only Sansa had gone with him at the Battle of Blackwater. I love SanSan!!! Great job!
rizalhasan Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

kangaroooo Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012
