I just finished watching the 3rd season of Game of Thrones last night. At last! I wasn't able to watch it on tv because I don't get the HBO channel right now... but I'm seriously considering it for the 4th season coming up...
God, I love this series so much. It's characters are complex and realistic, and it's story is complex and realistic. Now that I've finished the episodes, I've move on to all the wonderful extras included on the blu-ray discs. I love the extras!
Since I'm on a big Game of Thrones kick (still, pretty much the last two months...), I feel so sad to know that the sixth book won't be out this year at all for sure. I do know George Martin will write it wonderfully, so that's good, but still... I wish I could read it now. I hear there's been a few chapters of it released, but I'm not going to read them. I'll wait for the book!
My top favorite character is Arya, hands down. I love every chapter of hers in the books, and in the tv series she's portrayed wonderfully by Maisie Williams. She is such an amazing character, and Maisie does her justice. I can't wait to see how her story unfolds. The next up would probably by Daenarys; I just love her. Such a powerful, but ultimately kindhearted woman. Those kings and queens of Westeros better watch out for her.
It'd be hard to choose a third favorite character; there's so many more I like! Tyrion might be the third; I also love Jon Snow, and Bran's story has always fascinated me. I have a soft spot for Brienne, and Sandor as well (I love his character). Not to mention all the others I care about to some extent....
One of the things I love about this series, is how there's so many characters, and that all of them end up getting their stories intertwined with others, as unlikely as at first it would seem. It's so exciting to watch things unfold!
If anyone else watches/reads this series, I'd love to hear who your favorite characters are and why!
I will do single portraits/head-shots of people, creatures, or animals for either one of the following:
$30.00 mailed to me by money order,
A full-year Deviant Art premium membership given to me,
Or 2,400 points on Deviant Art.
A reference photo is required for me to draw from. All works will be digital, with simple/no backgrounds, and can be in either color or black and white. The definition of a head shot is strictly the head and neck; with a person's portrait I will draw all the way to the tops of their shoulders.
Payment can be given in full at the start of the commission, or if you prefer you can send me half of it at first and half of it when the picture is finished. You may also wait to send full payment until I'm halfway done with the picture, in which I'll send you a progress shot of it so you may see that I am committed to working on it before you pay.
Payments are final, there are no refunds. If you decide to pay me half in the beginning and then, before I am finished with the picture, decide you don't want it anymore, then you do not have to pay me the rest.
I do commission works just as good as my own personal works. My quality of art is professional and all commissions are treated as such. You should give my gallery a browse to make sure before commissioning that my artwork is something you like initially. I prefer to draw and paint things realistically, so take that into consideration; however if you want a different look, I might not be opposed to trying something different. The best way to find out is to ask!
Also, be sure to keep in mind that I have the right to display all finished pictures as I see fit, whether it's in my portfolio, here on Deviant Art, or anywhere else.
