A Price of Honor by nejna A Price of Honor by nejna
The white tears and the red ones ran together until her face was torn and tattered, the face that Ned had loved. Catelyn Stark raised her hands and watched the blood run down her long fingers, over her wrists, beneath the sleeves of her gown. Slow red worms crawled along her arms and under her clothes. It tickles. That made her laugh until she screamed.

George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire

EDITED 30.04.2007
Finally I've corrected all of the mistakes my watchers noticed on the first version, or at least that's what I hope for...

Details of it can be seen here

It was done with reference help of stock photos taken from:
Bolton (man in the pink) :iconcobweb-stock: [link]
Frey (man reaching for Catelyn) :iconjademacalla: [link]
Catelyn :iconsinned-angel-stock: [link]
Jinglebell (dead man in the back) :iconailinstock: [link]
Robb (dead king) :iconjustmeina: [link]

There's the funny thing that happens when you use photos in your works - especially when you use several, each by different person and for different purpouse. The light just doesn't work - especially on their hands.
Which, by the way, seem VERY similar to ones in photos. Either you haven't redone them at all, or you've done it so precisely that the difference can't be told - which sure does you credit, but seems like work you could've saved.

Please, don't get me wrong, I don't mean to insult you (what's the point of fighting on the internets anyway?) and God knows I'm far from being great artist, so I have no right to judge, I'm just trying to give you a little advice. Syncing the lights and shadow would make the picture more...whole, if that makes any sense.

I don't really remember why I painted him with long hair, was it because I imagined him that way, or was it because he was described with long hair...

I was listening to this chapter on youtube today. Catelyn's last moments were horrifying. The minute she started to claw her face was so horrendous that I decided to imagine it was the Freys who were slashing her face with daggers.

This is so beautiful!

I don't even think HBO can do a better job at showing Catelyn's anguish and pain :(

I really hope Sansa and Arya together as queen and faceless man avenge Robb and unite with Stoneheart just so she can leave this world in peace.

It would be a beautiful bittersweet ending :'(

OFMS *_* već duže vrijeme (nekoliko godina lol) se divim ovoj slici...i tek sad skužim da si iz Hrvatske :D
Ne znam da li sam ikada komentirao na sliku, preko starog profila (ne sječam se)...ali pregenijalna slika. Svaki put se vratim i opet me iznova pogodi...kao da opet čitam/pratim sve iznova....:'(

Je to se i meni dogadja, prvi put kad sam procitala poglavlje morala sam ga ponovno procitati jer sam mislila da sam nesto krivo tijekom citanja shvatila, nije bilo nikakve sanse da Martin ubije i Robba i Catelyn...

Ja se točno sječam kako sam buljio u knjigu pola sata, ne vjerujući što sam upravo pročitao. Imao sam noćne more od ovog poglavlja....nijedna druga knjiga nije toliko doprijela do mene. :(

100% agreed. I had to stop reading and pull my selftogether because it was overwhelming...amazing work, you can feel Cat's grief!
I would've gone mad with her, for the love of the seven Gods...may the Others take the Freys. And Bolton.

This is beautiful, but devastating. Seeing Robb's lifeless body and Cat's anguish is heartbreaking. I also like how Bolton's identity remains a bit ambiguous.
