Robert Baratheon 2 by henning Robert Baratheon 2 by henning
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

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. This belongs to the Iron Throne collection.

The character is Robert Baratheon, one of the Baratheon brothers. This is from when he was a boisterous, jovial, and drunken king. He is not above shouting out threats while drunk and stuffing his face.

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

Now 'this' is Robert. The breastplate seems a little out of place since he seems to be at a feast, but oh well. Great work. Read the damn books! (p.s. skipped over a lot of the wildlings because I just didn't pay attention to what they looked like when I was at that point in the books)

Yeah, I might seem weird with the armor. The client gives me descriptions, and it said that they are at some fancy dinner, wearing their finest armour, so I simply follow their leads.

I've recently started reading this series. I'm only on the first book, read about 250 pages. And so far it's good.
You've captured well what I've imagined.

There is a touch of sadness in his face, as if the mirth covers over a lot of restless pain.

It's perfect. Robert Baratheon is not a happy man. For more than that, you'll have to read the series - it's well worth the effort.
