I was bored so I made a process GIF of this image. I used a method I have never used before (starting in black and white and colouring later) so I thought I’d show my weird figuring out process. Hopefully the next one will go smoother what with what I learned from this!
I will draw more soon, but I am back at work now so I won’t have as much time.
“Ramsay was clad in black and pink - black boots, black belt and scabbard, black leather jerkin over a pink velvet doublet slashed with dark red satin. In his right ear gleamed a garnet cut in the shape of a drop of blood. Yet for all the splendor of his garb, he remained an ugly man, big-boned and slope-shouldered, with a fleshiness to him that suggested that in later life he would run to fat. His skin was pink and blotchy, his nose broad, his mouth small, his hair long and dark and dry. His lips were wide and meaty, but the thing men noticed first about him were his eyes. He had his lord father’s eyes - small, close-set, queerly pale. Ghost grey, some men called the shade, but in truth his eyes were all but colorless, like two chips of dirty ice. At the sight of Reek, he smiled a wet-lipped smile." - A Dance With Dragons, George R. R. Martin
The Bastard of Bolton, the first part in my A Song of Ice and Fire portrait project. I aim to paint some of the actors from the show, but more closely based off their book descriptions. This was done in Photoshop CS5.5 with a Wacom IntuosPro.
I’ve finally started a Game of Thrones portrait project that I’ve wanted to do forever! It involves drawing various characters how they are described in the books, but using the actors from the show. Here’s a work in progress of the first one - The Bastard of Bolton, Ramsay Snow. It will probably look very different when it’s done to how it does now!
