the reddest bite by bubug the reddest bite by bubug
"Sansa was only a child but still she'd seen the fox's red grin as it slunk from the henhouse, heard the fox chuckle to itself as it danced away back into the night. The Hound's own laughter had changed; she heard now the chuckle of a man who has always taken with pleasure the first, and reddest, bite. And so he was before her unrobed, the best of himself - shoulders loose, sure of step - and crackling all over, every inch, with death."

"Into the Wood" by Walter Gilman,
based on "A Song of Ice and Fire" by GRRM

(uh, submiting here really messes up with colors and contrast - the original is a little warmer and darker; hard luck, you can always download ; )

I absolutely love this image of Sandor- primal, fierce, and smoking hot...just as I imagine him in the ASoIaF books.   I'm completely blown away by your work, especially the "Into the Wood" inspired illustrations.  Thank you so much for sharing!

Yeah..terrified and its just a pic.  O.o  This is awesome.  I think I would have thrown the computer into the other room if I thought of drawing a back ground like this.  Amazing.

I really like the use of lines throughout the image, and how they differ from area to area. It reminds me of an illustration that might be in a fairy tale or tarot card image somehow. Lovely rendition of the Hound overall.

Kinda hot... yes, that's exactly what I was aiming for, but couldn't really name it. Now I know.

"Your drawings inspired me to read this story"
That was the plan : )

Thank you all for your lovely comments. I plan to make this a triptych, so it will be yet another illustration. We'll see.
