Based on "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin.
And again, if you haven't read all the volumes yet, please, don't look too closely.
Kind of the Stark family reunion :)

The amount of detail and the symbolism in her is absolutely mind-blowing. Love the figures hidden among the tangle of branches and roots. I also love the "medieval" quality of it, it looks like an ancient engraving. 
Your artwork should totally be featured as original illustration in the GRRM books! You make me want to fav all your pieces!
iraen Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2013
I don't often comment, I mostly just fave and run. But your stuff is amazing. So, so beautifully intricate. all of it. You really have your very own style, and it's haunting.
Your pictures make me feel really melancholic, that's the best emotion art can envoke, in my opinion. keep up that great work! :-)

How-/where can I buy this print?
PopthePuff Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013
Beauteous. I can not see Bran, however, as in his body. Is he represented by the tree?
SANU-CHAN Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is amazingly done *_*
Can't believe you're using gel pens for your artworks! Could you please specify the process of work? Is the hand-made drawing all black pen on white paper? All those shadowings and details and textures? Do you use the graphic program just to add color or...? Am I asking too many questions? XD
Anyway, I really like the gentle colors of this. And I just love that it's so detailed and yet looks very simplistic on a distant look.

Looking through your gallery just makes me thing I should read "A Song of Ice and Fire" ._.

this is just incredible artwork. stuning.
theforgottenbliss Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think this is my favorite ASOIAF art piece. I love everything about it, every single detail. And I love how they are all connected just how they are in the story.
UrukkiSaki Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
This is, in my opinion, your best ASOIAF work! :D I really like this one, it has complexity and the storytelling that gather all of the Stark characters at one place. But at the same time, every part of the picture tells the different story of Starks which are connected with branches of their tradition and culture which heart tree symbolize! Cheers! :)
MadameCata Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013

AndersLn Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Beautiful and heartbreaking, would be my words. Well done bubug

The sheer brilliance and complexity of this has moved me to tears. I cannot believe how thoroughly you present each character with a poignant moment from their story, with such a beautiful piece of art that is also clever enough to combine them all! Amazing!

Thank you all heartily!
ashtrayxx Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012
I have been looking at this piece for 10 minutes and thinking I would totally buy this poster size if you offered it as a print!! Absolutely amazing.

I have one question, where is Robb? (I have read all the books so no spoilers can hurt me). I had assumed that it was Ned and Catelyn upside down under the tree. But I see Lady Stoneheart at the top right, Catelyn doesn't have a sword and book Robb does have long red hair. So is that Robb in the blue cape upside down? ***SPOILER*** It would make sense that Ned and Robb are both underground, with Grey Wind and Lady. ***/SPOILER***

Ahhhh I'm so in love with this piece.
bubug Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013
"So is that Robb in the blue cape upside down?"
That's correct, I should have draw him a bit more masculine though.
Thank you, I'm glad you like it :)
