ASOIAF: Winter roses by nejna ASOIAF: Winter roses by nejna
Ned remembered the moment when all the smiles died, when Prince Rhaegar Targaryen urged his horse past his own wife, the Dornish princess Elia Martell, to lay the queen of beauty's laurel in Lyanna's lap. He could see it still: a crown of winter roses, blue as frost.

George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire

I've decided to repaint this scene differently. For Lyanna I've used one of stock photo for reference, an for Rhaegar's pose reference was one picture I've seen at Renderosity, unfortunately I couldn't found it again to see who is an autor. If you know, let me know so I could name him here.

Very good. I'm not sure what to say about this one besides I love the Stark banner and the Targaryen(sp?) tabard.

What a gorgeous pic. I can't believed I never commented on it before. I like how the focus is just on Lyanna and Rheagar here, unless your previous picture of this scene.

wow! all that pain you went through to paint the armour really paid off! you captured that light dark lighter thing that metal does really well! i'm sure i'll be staring at this piece to try and get a feel for the technique.

That is truely stunning. I think Lyanna's expression is wonderful... the whole scene is put together so well.

(it's one of those scenes that I think of when I think of the cruxes in ASoIaF: Stuff like 'What if Lyanna hadn't been taken prisoner, what if Brandom hadn't gone to get her back, etc etc. It's almost scary how much came from a few simple things.)

A lovely painting! Rhaegar looks wonderful in his armour (that cad!) and Lyanna is just lovely! I would have thought she would have looked a little more shocked, but she was gracious, and she looks it here. Great job!

:D Thanks! Well I'm still not quite sure he's a cad, I thought that through first half of AGOT especially after all those bitternes that Robert felt, but later changed my minde, I think there is still a big part of a story that was never told to us...

jojo-kun Featured By Owner May 12, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
perhaps, but he was married at the time and then all of a sudden wanted to be with Lyanna. But it's true that Martin likes to do that and tells only part of the story... so I'm waiting for the rest! :D

:iconnejna:
nejna Featured By Owner May 12, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes he was married, I allways pittied Elia, if Rhaegar deserved to die, she surly didn't! She didn't do anything wrong, damn Tywin for breading that monster Gregor, and twice damn Robert for not punishing him!
But every story had more than one side, as Mr Martin have already show us, and we got only one, those percepted by Robert, and partially from Ned... and they seems different to me. Robert saw something terrible, wrong and horrible, and Ned abow all saw sadness in it...

Super!
Haljina izgleda fantastično, a izraz na njenom licu je... eh, više zaljubljen nego iznenađen, ali svejedno odličan.
Kao što je netko prije mene primijetio, ima nekih problema s odnosima tijela u prostoru - možda bi trebala malo pozornosti obratiti na perspektivu i pripaziti da ti prejake boje ne učine cijelu kompoziciju plošnom...

No svejedno, odlična slika... i još jedan fantastičan trenutak iz knjige.
Usput, čini mi se da si prilično zaokupljena Rhaegarom i Lyannom :)

:D Ah Rhaegar i Lyanna... moj najdrazi par... ne znam uvijek sam se nadala da je nije silovao i da je ipak pozadi bila neka ljubavna prica...

a kompozicija i perspektiva mi uvijek zadaju glavobolje... nemam nikakve teoretske podloge, samo ono sto pokupim dok gledam tudje slike. jel znas mozda kakvu dobru knjigu na hrvatskom koja bi mi to malo pojasnila, odnose boja i kompoziciju i takve stvari?

Mislim da nam Martin tu još sprema velikih iznenađenja... :plotting:

Što se formalnih stvari tiče... ja povijest umjetnosti nisam nikad studirala u Hrvatskoj, pa ne poznajem literaturu, ali za osnovni uvod dovoljan je i prvi dio Likovne Umjetnosti Jadranke Damjanov - možda si već i radila po njoj, ako si imala umjetnost u gimnaziji. U njoj su svi osnovni pojmovi, a i vrlo jednostavno raščlanjuje umjetnička djela na osnovne elemente - tako da se vidi struktura. A osim toga, mogu ti samo preporučiti da puno gledaš... što sigurno već i sama znaš. Kad vidiš dobru sliku, zapitaj se što je na njoj dobro: kako je složena kompozicija i u kojem se smjeru kreće, koje su boje korištene i kako se slažu, otkud pada svjetlost i gdje joj je centar...

:D Imali smo prilicno otkacenog profesora, pa smo vecinom vodili nekakve filozofske rasprave, rijetko je kada s nama rasclanjivao neku sliku i analizirao je... uopce se ne sjecam da je bilo neke knjige, uglavnom je pokazivao dijapozitive...

ah nadam se iskreno da nije sve onako kako ljudi misle, kada prvi put procitaju knjigu... nakon prvih nekoliko poglavlja gotovo sam mrzila Rhaegara, pokvareni, arogantni silovatelj, ali kada se ga Ned poceo prisjecati, pa onda i svi ostali shvatila sam da nije sve crno i bijelo.

Predivne teksture i detalj. Da bi uspjela malo vise bilo bi dobro dodati sjene da slika ne izgleda tako rava, i uspostaviti odnos izmedju figura i onoga sto ih okruzuje. Cesto koristeci geometriju jedan moze popraviti dojam prostora, linije mogu uciniti cuda. Ako promjenis malo boju ili smjer dasaka izmedju poda i zida dalo bi vise dojam prostora. Trenutno je vrlo tesko odluciti gdje zid pocinje a gdje pod, tako da figure izgledaju kao da lebde ili su isjecene i stavljene u okolinu... Cesto boje koje koristis u okolini dobro je da ih uneses u figure i boje iz figura u okolinu na taj nacin se cijela slika puno vise veze... ovo ti je trebalo dosta vrimena i puno truda. Svidja mi se detalj koji si stavila i forme... samo nastavi znam da to mozes napravit super slike, ove su pune maste i imas viziju i to je najvaznije.

:D I felt so sory for Elia, and still do, such an unhappy fate, first your husband humiliate you, then he run off with some teenager girl, you found aourself in the middle of a war, coused by your husbands doings, and then they raped you, killed your children befor your eyes and killed you... I completly undesrstood Red Viper's frustration and anger towards Lannisters...
But somehow that story about tournament and a crown of winter roses still hounts me...
