King beyond the wall by henning King beyond the wall by henning

This is an illustration for Fantasy Flight Games collectible card game named A Game of Thrones, which is based on the world of best-selling author George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice & Fire.

The character is Mance Rayder, proclaiming his dominion over the land.

Illustrations for card games like this always have short deadlines, and are supposed to be viewed on a smaller scale than here.

Mance Rayder, King of the Andals and First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, winner of the game of thrones. Who else is with me on this?

This makes me veeeeeery happy. I'm quite taken with Mance's character, and this definitely gives me the feel.

Shame he's missing the slashed red silk in his cloak, though. That would have made it perfect. I'll just asume he changed for battle or something.

Very cool. I like the windy feeling, and the expression upon his face. Its quite intriguing.

there is some great movement in this picture, all the flowing lines... there is something strange about the cloak at the shoulder, though. that's all i had to say really, it's a wonderful picture. you are very talented.

This guy looks insane!! How wonderfully you've captured his emotion and mental state! I love the castle parts that I can see, and the flying cloak!

thats so awesome
I love these cards especially because of the reason you're illustrating - theyre always so damn dramatic!
Cool to see you're also doing this, I watch you and Kyena, so it must be a fun project to do together.
Great to see art from you again, was beginning to wonder.

Thanks :-)
Its very cool to work on the same project as Tascha, hehe... I am not very satisfied with these ones, but keeping in mind that they are to be viewed on tiny gaming cards keeps me calm, heh ;-)

This one is awesome! I love the motion of the cloak, and the pose, perspective, contrast, and color. Really nice job :D
