ASOIAF: Oathkeeper by nejna ASOIAF: Oathkeeper by nejna
Painted for ASOIAF Art Exchange

Recipient: matitablu
Title: Oathkeeper
Artist: nejna
Rating: G
Character(s)/Pairing: Jaime/Brienne
...Rubies glimmered in the light. She picked the treasure up gingerly, curled her fingers around the leather grip, and slowly slid the sword free of its scabbard. Blood and black the ripples shone. A finger of reflected light ran red along the edge. "Is this Valyrian steel? I have never seen such colors."
"Nor I. There was a time that I would have given my right hand to wield a sword like that. Now it appears I have, so the blade is wasted on me. Take it." Before she could think to refuse, he went on. "A sword so fine must bear a name. It would please me if you would call this one Oathkeeper."...

Jaimie and Brienne are characters from George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire serie.

For painting Brienne I used pose reference from chonastock.

Good job, especially for Brienne, this is the best her representation.

Awsome art! I like it the most when it's different to the show. Is it ok if I use this in a upcoming video for the youtubes? Will give full credit

I love your rendition of Brienne, you managed to keep her masculine looks but made her attractive as a woman. I could never honestly see Brienne as ugly, a strong woman, a healthy amazon, and that;s how you portrayed her, props.
Future Lady of the Rock perhaps :giggle:

Yes I have this problem also, I just can't imagine Brienne and Tyrion ugly...

I mean I guess they're ugly when compared to Cersei and Jaime and I hardly think them attractive in the traditional sense, but in their own way, I always pictured them to be attractive.

Great scene. I love the rendition. And that sword is beautiful.

Very few people draw Brienne. This was very well done, and I love the rippling on Oathkeeper. It fits my image of the blade very, very well.

I love your depiction of Brienne. It is very similar to how I imagine her whenever I read the books. The only thing I might change here, would be to make her a little bigt taller than Jaime (but thats nitpicking). I really like this piece, and also appreciate the way you rendered Oathkeepers' blade. It seems like alot of people forget that the Valyrian steel blades are black. Even the company that sells replica's of Ice and Longclaw seem to have forgotten that very important detail. Anyway, very nice work.
