Sansa's Letter by cabepfir Sansa's Letter by cabepfir
Regent queen Cersei Lannister and the Coucil graciously invite Sansa Stark to write a letter to Winterfell ;)
All are in mourning clothes for the death of King Robert.

From left to right, Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish is lost in blissful thinking of how much Sansa resembles her mother, Grand Maester Pycelle disapproves leaving a traitor's daughter alive and well, Cersei is all sweet and honey, and Varys the Spider... who knows what Varys is really thinking?

Cersei is too beautiful and too vile. I fear that if I was a man, I'd be in love with someone like Cersei :P

ASoFaI (c) George RR Martin

ps. Petyr is playing with the famous dagger.

NOTE: I am aware that Sansa's hair should be auburn. The black hair depicted here came from a mistranslation. Italian translation of ASOIAF stated, at the beginning, that Tully's hair were black, so I imagined Sansa with black hair at the beginning.

E' meraviglioso! Complimenti! (e che quelli della traduzione italiana siano dannati per aver tradotto male. Avevano un solo compito, santo cielo)

This is beautiful!! Seriously, everyone looks so perfect. (Petyr's expression is hilarious)...I love the mourning clothes you gave everyone - Cersei's just like it is in the books, and it's so strange to see Varys dressed in such dark colourswhen it's not a disguise ^^ Even the deer tapestries and the lion head in the background! And Sansa is beautiful :3 I too was going to ask about her dark hair, but I saw you answer the same question in the comments. That explains it! Is it true that the Italian translation also translated the Greyjoys' words "we do not sow" to mean "we don't know how to sew"? x)
Anyway I love your painting style~ Do you sketch your pictures first? I don't see any pencil lines. I wouldn't be able to paint without lines :P

Thank you! Yes, there are pencils lines underneath - I always paint with lineart too! It's just been covered by the other colors.

I really hope that Sansa experiences major development later on, because up to this point she's so empty headed and selfish it makes me want to jump in the story and slap some sense into her!

I loved this, but I was at first confused as to why Arya was in the picture.... Sansa's the red head with blue eyes. Nonetheless, awesomeness.

I'm well aware of that, now; it all came from a mistranslation. Italian translation of ASOIAF stated, at the beginning, that Tully's hair were black, so I imagined Sansa with black hair at the beginning.

Sorry, should have read through the comments before posting my own. Apart from that minor detail, I loved it- I was just looking for a girl who could be Sansa, and was confused at the lack or red. Silly translators, messing up fanarts.... :D

I know. The fault is of the Italian translation, which mistook "auburn" for "raven black" any time it was used for Tully's hair.

Bellissimo!!! purtroppo la traduzione italiana della saga continua ad insistere che catelyn e sansa abbiano capelli corvini..quando invece nella versione originale sono rossi...al traduttore piacevano piu neri i capelli...

E non si sono presi la briga di correggere le nuove edizioni neanche dopo la serie tv, quando chiunque si sarebbe reso conto dell'errore. E ce li fanno pagare anche di più con la scusa di suddividerli in volumi.
Ma vogliamo parlare del rostro di UNICORNO che uccide la metalupa all'inizio del primo libro? Presagi sprecati.
Ad ogni modo, l'illustrazione è bellissima. L'abito di Cersei è stupendo. Ha stile anche a lutto. Complimenti!

Purtroppo capita con molti libri... Gli errori di stampa li correggono molto raramente, anche se ne fanno molte riedizioni. Sigh.

I am afraid of your Cersei, she looks too perfect to be nice - and as we all know, she isn't. Afraid. Yes.

My namesake is in his own world where he is Cat's husband.

Go Littlefinger! I just love his look, very dreamy indeed. And its nice to see him on picture, he is one of my fav characters from series.

Nice Cersei as well, I would not like to meet her. Too beautiful.

Okay, this one takes the favorite, for not only being a great picture of so many different character (which you really nailed their individual personalities down), but also a great watercolor painting (which I could never master).
But mostly Cersei's freaking hot.

Shit, I'm gonna have to watch you now, you know that? (:

The poor fanartist just has to draw Cersei beautiful. You won't incur in the Queen's vengeance, would you? A Lannister always pays his debts.

Ahhah, look at Littlefinger just staaaaring at Sansa! Love all the expressions but I think Cersei is my favorite, she's so beautiful in a cold way, just like she's said to be in the story.
