"A Beauty, A Beauty"


So I took a break from drawing trains and drew a knight instead.

Here's Brienne of Tarth, from the Song of Ice and Fire series. She's a naive young woman with idealistic views about knighthood and honor. She also happens to wield a morning-star, is like 6'4" and super big, a strong fighter, and has a broad, ugly face with a broken nose, limp flaxen hair, and huge lips/teeth. Her one "pretty" feature is her large, clear blue eyes. She's a really interesting character. I probably drew her a little prettier than she should be.

Sam & I are huge fans of the Song of Ice and Fire series (read 'em!) which will also soon be released as a new HBO show, Game of Thrones. We've been thinking of doing some fanart from the books and then making a tumblr together...we'll see, once we both have some more free time!

Make this tumblr or SUFFER MY WRATH (voice-mails of me crying and begging pitifully)

I love what you've done here kali, the combination of simplistic forms and colors with a slightly more rendered head is freaking awesome (I think I might give something similar a shot too). I totally love this piece!

Your Brienne is exactly as I pictured her. Great work. I hope you do more.

I'm with Kriss. This is exactly how I envisioned her. I always saw her as more beautiful than the descriptions in the books because I liked her personality.
