Stannis Baratheon by henning Stannis Baratheon 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 Stannis Baratheon, one of the Baratheon brothers.

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

Though my favourite character is Eddard Stark, I often find that my views are closest to Stannis'. (Which doesn't really say much seeing as almost all the characters follow very outdated moral codes. Provided they follow moral codes.)

It's impressive. As good as Sthephen Dillane is, he looks nothing like I had imagined Stannis while reading. This one nails it.

I like this a lot, but as ever, I do have a complaint. Stannis is supposed to be clean shaven, as if to spite Robert in a way. No beard, maybe a little stubble, but not that thing. Also this character looks quite well... old to be honest. He's supposed to look older than he is, but not 'that' bad.

The work is so detailed that this could easily pass for an oil painted. This portrait is just...out of this world :nod:.

Very nice feeling of concern. The coming storm.

Very beautiful. Details of light, shadow and materials just catch my eyes.

Nicely done!

Thank you very much! He is supposed to looks as if he is dealing with things he'd rather not have to deal with. :-)

Thank you... According to the description he is dealing with things he wish he would have to deal with. Guess he really didn't want to be king according to the books.

I like the contrast between the pensive look and the waiting sword.

I like this one best out of the selection posted :) I like his expression, through face, hands and body positioning. Nice to see what the other FFG artists do :)

Thanks, it's always hard to get good poses because of the short deadlines. When I made these I had lots of extra work in addition to this and my fulltime job :-( Still, It's good practice, hehe.

Really? Wow, thanks! I haven't read the books, and therefore have to do a lot of research before painting :boogie:
