The Red Viper vs. The Mountain page 1 of 3

November 30, 2011

I asked the Game of Thrones community over at to vote on what character they would like to see illustrated. The overwhelming response wasn’t a character but a scene: Prince Oberyn Martell vs. Ser Gregor Clegane.  The Red Viper vs. The Mountain. What I’ve got here is probably one of three pages I see for this scene. A Storm of Swords, the third novel in  GRRM’s opus A Song of Ice and Fire is so far my favorite. George has me digging fantasy for the first time. This page is spoiler light, but the next one won’t be. Stay tuned!

    Nice job! I like your style. It will be handy for future Mountain illustrations. Try the Dunk and Egg trilogy out when you finish ASOIAF.

    This looks really great. Nice job so far! Can’t wait to see the rest.

    really nice; however I will perhaps put a more dark color in the background to really do the transition with the caracters themselves.
    Elsewhere, really nice job.

    Wow! That’s very impressive!

    P.S. I love your description about yourself: “Just an old fashioned love song”. Very clever! 🙂

    everyone should read the malazan book of the fallen instead of the song of ice and fire.

    I am amazed by people (like you) who can draw … I am a writer by profession, thus my art is through words … yet I have ZERO talent with pix and illustrations!

    Fun post…

    Very nice work with good perspective and layout. 🙂

    Excelent drawnings. Nanquim, isn´t?

  9. November 30, 2011 6:20 pm

    Awesome, can’t wait to see it finished.

    nice compositions

  11. November 30, 2011 6:47 pm

    Love love love it!

    I made a Game of Thrones flowchart awhile back, I should have had you illustrate it!

  12. November 30, 2011 7:05 pm

    This is wonderfully done 🙂

    That fight was so hardcore. Can’t wait to see it on HBO, but this is doing a good job tiding me over!

    Reblogged this on The Fischer Account and commented:
    It’s funny how I would have more confidence in a fan-made comic book of this series than one done by a pro comic book company.

    Dude I like your style kinda reminds me off Trigun or The old MTV oddities cartoons.

    I’m an aspireing illistrator myself and
    have heard of these books. This scene
    strikes me as funney. I may have to check
    it out. Do you write any stories of your own?
    A serial here would be worth a read – I have
    a small Novel posted as well as some short
    fictions and would like feedback.

    Here is a link to my flashfiction on the
    merits of Zombies in the workplace.

    You style is interesting, I will mark this and
    try to check out more of your posts.

    I have such a love-hate relationship with this scene. The Red Viper of Dorne was such a badass character.

    Please finish this! I really love your Tower of Joy comic, and I’d LOVE to see the work you do on your continuation of this sequence. It’s such a great scene in the books and your style really is a wonderful match for this series!
