Arianne Martell by Lauren-Oh Arianne Martell by Lauren-Oh
i can has moar ASOIAF laydeez?:iconimhappyplz:

Arianne Martell, the Princess in the Tower. I surprised myself by drawing her; she's not my favorite character. Sure she's feisty and sexy, but she basically started a war of entitlement. Doran Martell was all like "facepalm."

Continuing to experiment with textures... I guess I'm making a series?? Who's your favorite ASOIAF lady? Any requests??

Thank you all for your super-supportive comments on Lyanna! I've never been a naturally talented artist, so I'm very timid about my artwork in real life. That's why I love DA; every little comment really makes my day!!

There's just something about these eastern-looking types of women that's always appealed to me, though I've had a hadr time putting into words exactly why that is.

Haha, I think you summed up my own feelings about Arianne perfectly, and you captured her feisty expression perfectly too! I love the sheer draped fabric in her costume too, it really gives a sense of exoticism to the poicture which suits her Dornish style. :)

Love it! How about if you do some of the men now? Say, Doran Martell?

This is superb. I can't think of Arianne Martell without thinking of Ser Arys Oakheart's bizarre fascination with her enormous nipples. You know who I wanna see! Osha! Or Yggritte!

Oh hey, you have her too! I feel bad--the Martells are now my second favorite house, but I rushed through AFFC and only read it once so I can't remember a darn thing about their plotline. Argh. I'm rereading the series, but it'll be a while until I'm there. I'm sure I'll think of Arianne in a better light once I get to it.

Anyway, I love the shadow with the palms. I also like the eastern look of her drapery. The midriff part reminds me of a classical statue (e.g. Nike of Samothrace). Her skin is a bit more tanned than I would have expected, iirc the Martells are "salty" Dornishmen, so they have an olive/Mediterranean complexion, but this looks nice enough that I'm fine with it.

As for favorite ASOIAF lady--well, Daenerys is my favorite but you've done her already. Sansa would be amazing; not sure if you've drawn her yet. I mislike all the hate she generates.

I was watching all your beautiful ASOIAF girls' portrait and I must say they ADORABLE! very well drawn, well characterized, full of lovely details. Nice colors and nice way to color. Nice style and expression.
Nothing to say, except "bravo!"
I like all girls you've drawn, but Arianne is my favourite.
I hope to see more of it soon!

Absolutely wonderful portrait! However, Arianne actually attempted a bloodless coup against her father, because she thought she was being disinherited on account of being female. The war was against the Lannisters, and had nothing to do with anything except vengeance.

Thank you! :D It's pretty easy to stick it to ol' Cersei. "You're a short-sighted slow-witted drunken brotherfucker, and you're destroying your kingdom. Also, you're slowly getting fat."

I am wowed by this. Arianne was never my favourite either, but I think she is a very strong-willed woman and I respected her- and I really think you've done a fantastic job at expressing her personality in pose and facial expression alone. I can totally imagine her way better now. I also really love the way you dressed her - it's all warm colours and really goes a long way to define her as well.

I would put my vote in for Arya because she is definately my favourite!

(Also LOL at your description of Doran's reaction to her little coup)

Thank you! Err, yeah, I had to use an ASOIAF wiki to remind me how she's described physically...I had no mental image before I started drawing this. I think my brain was like "uhhh, bratty dusky-skinned princess in a desert palace...Princess Jasmine???" :XD:

I've never drawn Arya, I will add her to the list!

I like this :) I'm an Arianne fan too, I think she's interesting *because* she makes mistakes (but then I love characters like Catelyn and Sansa). I think it's kind of funny how so much drama in Westeros starts because of personal problems like daddy issues, heheh. And didn't Lyanna kinda start a war too?

As for requests, well another popular female character is Daenerys, and Arya, and then Cersei is a big deal no matter what you think of her personally. Same for Melisandre, she tends to make for great art actually, it could be fun to try to incorporate "eastern" elements. There's some cool side characters like the Mormont women, or Olenna Tyrell or her granddaughter Margaery. Brienne would be interesting as an atypical unfeminine woman?

Yes, I too am in love with the screw-ups...:XD: They're so endearing!!

Mmm, mmm...good suggestions all! Melisandre is tough, because there's so much great art of her (she's a very visually vivid character) so I'd feel obliged to do something completely different. But I love sketching Margaery, I do it all the time! Aiya, too many laydeez, I'll get to them all eventually...

You could go really obscure if you wanted, for example Quaithe sounds pretty vivid too but there's little fanart out there of her. Ashara Dayne has a lot of romantic aura around her, but there isn't really an established look for her yet. On the topic of the Martells I'm fond of Elia too, it'd be interesting to see your take on the official royal garb.

Anyway, sorry for rambling, best of luck on your series :)

No judgements here. Ol' Cersei is one of my favorites, and she's absolutely indefensible.

Hahaha, she did start a war of entitlement. She was too impatient.Anyway I think you got her attitude right in her posture and clothing and expression. I think that Myrcella is gonna end up epic before she most likely dies. D: Olenna is a fucking badass old lady.
