Elia's Last Moments by Achen089 Elia's Last Moments by Achen089
I have a lot of sympathy for the Martells. Here's my take on poor Elia and baby Aegon's (?) last moments before they met their fate in Gregor's hands. I imagined the Dornish fashion slightly Greco-roman-like and i kid you not, Doran Martell in my mind totally looks like Peter Ustivov as Nero in Quo Vadis. :O Only a little bit older and much less crazy.

The characters are from the Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones series.

Others in the same style:

Great facial expression. It's no 'overacting', but still unambigous.
Oh, beloves House of Martell. *sigh*

Πολύ μου αρέσουν τα έργα σου, αλλά αυτό ειδικά το λατρεύω.
Η έκφρασή της, οι σκιάσεις κι ιδιαίτερα τα χέρια της. Όλα είναι υπέροχα. :heart:
Πραγματικά θαυμάζω τον τρόπο με τον οποίο χειρίζεσαι το μολύβι. :)

I am curious as to what kind of pencil you use? Your work is truly breath taking. It appears so soft while maintaining such detail. I love it!

It's true, her hands are gorgeous in this drawing- so are her arms, especially the sense of weight you've managed to impart from her carrying the baby. But I love her face most of all, specifically her eyebrows, that perfect look of confusion and panic you've managed to capture. I love the Martells, and especially poor Elia- beautiful drawing. My new head-canon for how she looks!

Ξέρεις, είμαι λίγο διχασμένη τώρα στο θέμα του Dornish στυλ.. :O Ειδικά τον Oberyn τον φαντάστηκα λίγο μελαμψό αλλά ο Doran μου κόλλησε η εικόνα του Peter Ustinov στο Quo Vadis και έτσι έγιναν οι Dornish Ρωμαίοι. :D Ίσως όμως να τους πηγαίνει πιο πολύ ναι είναι κάτι από Ίβηρες/Καρχηδόνιοι οπότε συνδυάζουν λίγο απ'όλα. ;P

I imagine them sometimes like romans too, only for Doran, but the rest I imagine them a bit of arabian or (al-andalus with something like the Alhambra from Granada as the place where Doran rests)
