ASOIAF - Queens of Prophecy by Achen089 ASOIAF - Queens of Prophecy by Achen089
I'm very curious to see who the younger queen to cast down Cersei will be (if be). Margaery and Dany are too obvious in my opinion and i kind of like Dany queen of Easteros(?) better. I included Myrcella because i thought that would be an interesting scenario, though i imagine she would be more of a pawn/puppet queen, through the Martells perhaps, and Sansa because though i can't see her as queen i find it the most fitting that she'd be the one to bring about Cersei's downfall. She's kind of like a dark horse for me and i'd love to see a phoenix-like rebirth for her through the Alayne Stone persona.

This time i went for a Margaery closer to what i imagined her, curly hair, scheming and all, than TV show-wise. Cersei in that magnificent armour-gown from the last episode of the second season doing what she would have always wanted, becoming king. :D Dany with her dragon crown and bells in her hair and Myrcella in what i imagined the Dornish fashion to be, something greco-egyptian-like, pardon me if i'm wrong. Also i don't remember if her scar/s were described but that was only a sketch to get the idea down so you'll pardon me that too.

Who do you think/like to be the queen of Cersei's prophecy?

Regardless who will be the young and beautiful queen, all we know is that Cersei will be finished and be left with nothing.

Incredible work

About the question - either Arianne, Margery or Sansa... They are familiar with Westeros life, politics, laws and lords.
Dany has chanses only if allies with Dorne but with Quentin burned alive by her dragons and her behavior "I'm the queen and I have dragons", I don't see it happening. 
To be honest I preffer it to be Sansa - first, she learned the most bitter lession in her life from Cresei, second - as she grows up becomes more and more like her (before the drinking problem), third - she has all motives to turn her all the pain.
Arya is cool, but is just too broken and is most likely to die... Except revenge she has nothing to live for.

I really love your art!Your pencil sketches are so semi-realistic/realistic!The way you draw hands and everything else are beautiful.:D

Essos, not Easteros.

I think the younger queen will be someone who resembles any woman who (in Cersei's mind) "stole" Rhaegar from Cersei.

That or GRRM will troll us by somehow by making Nymeria the direwolf the queen.

Beautiful drawings. You captured their personalities so well. And I really love your Dorne robes. I guess, I imagined them similarly without thinking much about them^^

I always imagined how great it would be if Myrcella was the queen of Cerceis prophecy. I really really like Myrcella. She's nice and really smart and with the right guidance she would be a great queen. She will die before Cercei does but she will be crowned first. So this could still fit the prophecy. But I can't imagine how she would take away from Cersei all that is dear to her.

Margaery is too obvious, but she fits the prophecy best. Her family (in Petyrs commission) killed Joffrey during their wedding. She manipulates Tommen really well at the moment.

Dany is even more obvious because everyone thinks, she will end up as queen of Westeros. But if she doesn't hurry, Cersei will have lost everything she loves the most even before Dany sets a foot on Westeros soil.

I would so much love it to be Sansa. Sansa is great and she learns from one of the best schemers of the series. Plus I think that Tyrion might end up on the Iron Throne (either with Jon at the Wall and Dany in Essos or the three of them sharing the rule) and he and Sansa ARE still married.

As much as I love Arya (and Gendry together) I can't picture them as king and queen.

I can't wait for the next book to come out.

This is such a powerful drawing.
Kalliroe Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow, awesome work, the details are amazing! :clap:

As for the future queen, I think that the most obvious characters - Dany, Margaery, Sansa - may die before the end of the series (knowing GRRM). And then, the queen will be e.g. Shireen Baratheon, Asha Greyjoy or even a completely unexpected person, such as Mya or Meera... 

Arya - now as Jeyne is posing as her, she may as well become the queen (those of you who read the Witcher series will know what I'm writing about ;))!

I'd totally pay to see the evilly grinning Gilly on the Iron Throne!!! :XD:

this is the most beautiful thing ever! great picture!

I'm hoping for Arya, but I doubt that it will be her. My guess is Dany because she fits Melisandre's prophecy but Myrcella would also be great because she would be rebelling against her controlling mother and all of that. I don't think that Margaery will be the queen but GRRM has thrown some curveballs before. Same with Sansa. Maybe it will be someone else entirely...
Kelloth Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
 actually I like to think that the queen could be Arya: it says that when she's grown up, she's gonna be really beautiful, just like her aunt Lyanna, and Lyanna was the woman who gave all the attention from  the love interest of Cersei, Robert and Rhaegar, and it coulb be epic that she saw a Lyanna ghost coming back to take from her all that she wants.

If Stannis and Selyse die, the only Baratheon left is Gendry automatically, and if we took the chance that Daenerys never arrives to Westeros or dies in any other way, that could be a real posibility, after all, if Targaryens finally extint, the lines officialy keeps with the Baratheons, if the Stark House command again, with Brandon or Rickon, they oinly be care of the North, and I predict the Lannister and Tyrell's House destruction at the end of the saga. Well, after all Im a very fan of Arya x Gendry (baratheons and Stark needs finally be together TwT)

I hear another theory about a possible Targaryen triumph and a Arya x Aegon, but Im not convinced of that chance.

Arya queen!!! and Gendry King!!! w

Cerseis' expression in this is beautiful. It's all beautiful, but her expression in particular.
Thehgirl13 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014  Hobbyist
It can't be Myrcella because Cersei's supposed to outlive all her children. I can see Margaery and Dany as the "younger and beautiful" queen. I'm not too sure about Sansa, but I love your drawing! It's amazing. 
Exessen Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
Myrcella could still get on the throne before she died. Maggy also hinted at all her kids dying while on the throne.
That would probably be too anti-climactic though, with so much buildup, it would be kinda meh if Myrcella got on the throne only to die shortly after.
Damien-Veriseple Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Jeyne Westerling might end up being the queen of prophecy too.  She's the last contender I can see that was/will be/is a queen.
sidhwen Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is gorgeous!
I like that you included Myrcella's scar which hasn't happened yet on TV but it made her instantly recognizable for me. While it would be interesting to have her own daughter usurp her, I don't believe that will be the case (and that's probably the one scenario that would bother Cercei the least) since the prophecy also stated that  she will outlive all her children.
While I couldn't really see Sansa as Queen either (at least not endgame),  with the Alayne Stone persona her storyline became a whole lot more interesting and I agree about liking "to see a phoenix-like rebirth".
On the one hand I wouldn't mind seeing Dany take the Iron Throne (although she'd still have a long way to go in becoming an adequate queen for Westeros - never having lived there etc.) but on the other hand I think that would be too obvious and that the genius Mr Martin will surprise us all - there may very well come someone altogether new who we haven't even met yet...
I'll just say ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE :D (Big Grin)

Love, love, love your work! The comments are getting interesting...I might add, if a little off topic and spoliery!!!!
Has anyone thought Jon might actually be R'hllor reborn?...I mean if Thoros brought back Dondarrion, perhaps Melisandre does the same to Jon?...He would be a much better fit than Stannis!...
Anyhoo I think the queen should be Sansa but I can't help but feel like Baelish is just setting her up! I distrust him so much, her killed her aunt!!
brishav Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013
amazing. Although, the queen who casts her down could not be Myrcella because she is to die before Cersei.
sumbudee2luv Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
Interesting! Your style is absolutely fabulous. They all look so beautiful!

So, about who I think will be the queen from Cersei's prophecy... Maggy the Frog tells Cersei (about her kids) "Gold shall be their crowns and gold their shrouds," and then "And when your tears have drowned you... etc" implying they'll all be kings/queens and then die, with Cersei witnessing it. So from that I'm ruling Myrcella out.

As for Dany, shes's on the other side of the world. She's also a big part of a multitude of completely different storylines and I'd feel a little mad at GRRM if he decided to shove her into the Cersei storyline at the last second. I don't think he'd do that (or at least I hope he won't).

I'm also debating on whether to rule Sansa out because, technically, she's not a "queen." I'd very much like it to be her, though. It would be spectacular on GRRM's part, especially considering how closely Sansa's life mirror's Cersei's story: the little girl who loved songs and wanted to marry the prince, etc, etc...

Still, Margaery isn't looking too great either, considering what happened in AFFC. Besides, Cersei is so *completely* convinced that Margaery is the queen of the prophecy that's she's managed to un-convince me. I guess it just feels a little too obvious, like Margaery is a red herring of sorts.

So, ultimately, my vote is for Sansa. She's been a big part of that storyline from the beginning and seems the most... logical, I guess? She's also the one I would like to be the queen. Oh, how deliciously ironic it would be. I can't wait to see what GRRM will do.

I love your style, you don't do any tutorials? Maybe got any general tips? I really loooooooooooooooove how you draw!! :D
Achen089 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013   Traditional Artist
Well, i don't have anything specific in mind though studying a bit of the anatomy of the body is always helpful if you want to draw/paint humans. I just started paying attention to others around me, or look at your own hands/feet/face to see how muscles and shadows work. ;)
yu-shen Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013
It is Margaery....George always mentions prophecies are what you make of it.
For Cersei, Margaery is the younger queen that will take everything away from her and she going lengths to get rid of her but in doing so, she is causing her own downfall. Cersei never felt threatened about the other girls but Margaery.

...anyway, the Tyrell girl has already taken two of her sons. And had she not cast her down already? Cersei's plan on blaming adultery and fornication on her backfired and instead it was her who did the Penance walk. Since then, Cersei had become a little bit reserved...:)

Hmm.. Don't know.. Dany?

It's difficult, everyone wants to be !the! Queen /King..
But I think everyone has the dark side and Would be more or less a brutal King/Queen..

I'll See..^^

I think is Dany
JadeJoyMann Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013
I want it to be Arianne, personally, but George seems to favor Sansa and I think it will be her.

I used to want it to be Dany, but ADWD Dany is a miserable creature. Arg.

Gorgeous, by the way.

TigerLeily Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012
I have a very weird/good feeling that it's gonna be Arya. Not that I think Arya will become queen, but GOD how great would it be for Arya to come back all gorgeous and grown up and badass and just kill Cersei, and the last thing Cersei sees is Arya grinning wolfishly down at her.
This is a great mental image.
nellethiel-aranel Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013
I want Sansa and Arya to reunite and basically just destory everyone that ever hurt them. I'd rather if Sansa was the one to kill Cersei though, since Cersei directly tortured her the most.

And Rickon too! Everyone forgets Rickon but I love him and think he's gonna come back from Skagos a total baddass.

The Stark kids would be unstoppable if they all found each other again.

Lord no I don't want it to be Cersei, I prefer Myrcella or Sansa.
Gretsch5120 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
I thought left-right it was myrcella (scar, more childish than the rest), margery (rose, brown hair), danaerys (already has a crown, didn't think you were including cersei) , arianne martell (dressed in what looks dornish to me, cant see the bells and didnt spot the dragon crown till pointed out) and sansa (auburn, cloak=northern)
in this five you also have every region neatly represented (dany for crownlands and sansa stands for north, river and vale lol). if you included asha that would be the ironborn aswell :D

I hope it will be Sansa. Myrcella is a sweetheart, but she didn't take anything Cersei hold dear. Margaery and Dany...well I can't stand them both. Margaery is spoiled brat and Dany is narrow minded.
Wonderful artwork <3

This is beautiful. You captured Sansa and Margaery perfectly, as to how they look in my mind anyway :)
I'm confused by Myrcella though, what is this scar you have given her? Ah well, perhaps I have not gotten to it yet, I've only gotten barely a quarter into AFFC :)

Ahh, I tried to guess who was who before reading the description and for some reason I though the one on the far right is Ygritte ^^; But that one's Myrcella, am I right? xDD; Or is it Sansa?
Anyway, all of them look absolutely stunning! I love the outfits especially <3
Achen089 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012   Traditional Artist
Myrcella is the first on the left and the one on the far right is an older Sansa/Alayne Stone. ;)

I think it couldn't be Myrcella, becouse in the prophecy it is said that Cersei will see her children die before "the younger queen" will arrive.

Your picture is beautiful. your sketches are so delicae and elegant

Ah, you're right. :O There goes one of my theories.. :D And i had actually liked the idea of Myrcella becoming a better queen than Cersei.
