    Red face Game of Thrones

    Well, as ashamed as I may be, considering the presence of a true professional mate and artist we are pleased to have and is sharing his artworks with us on the same subject, I proceeded quickly and without any established technique and process, to paint a mildy distorted caricature of Khal Drogo.
    It's far for a very precise and refined work, but I hope You may like it since it took a couple of hours or somethinh more and with my ordinary pedantry and patience levels (quite low indeed) it's quite an achievement.

    Hey, really Nice one Caesar ... and really fast too ! The character is recognizable right away. Great job !
    I still don't know if I should work on Drogo. There are so many characters in this show and I don't want to spend too many time on it. Maybe 3 or 4 more and I'll be done.

    Can't wait to see what you'll come up next !

    Well I rather get stirred by nice ladies usually, dear ATPloos, but Yoann's works gallery is so extraordinary that it drew me in by my hair, as we idiomatically use to say in Italian. Thank You and go on having fun!

    Dear Yoann, I'm quite far from a good technique and process, let it a comprehensive likeness, but I could possibly do much better as for accuracy and finishing quality if I were more disciplined and able to use a sensibly larger sheet size and screen and perhaps spend some money for a far better tablet, but I'm not a professional and it would be silly to invest too much and maybe get still frustrated by the outcome at the end of the day.
    I selected this character because You didn't so far, probably his early departure from life did not help, and, evidently, it wasn't that hard to hit close enough. It was fun to try after all. I'm honored and ashamed by Your kind visit. Thank You!

    This is amazing Caesar!

    I'm a big fan of 'Game of Thrones', like many and I have watched all up to the last season - I was actually slow to watch the one where John Snow died and I wasn't expecting to see a character who featured heavily in the first season.

    I wished I could say something 'artistic', yet the stunning imagery is silencing me.

    A very striking piece, you have expertly captured his brooding ferocity!

    Dear Matt, Game of Thrones (In Italian Il Trono di Spade, i.e. The Throne of Swords) was originally bradcasted on a pay-tv so I used to see it on streaming later on either in Italian or in English (with some more difficulty in some cases), but after I read the relevant translated books, so I know enough about that series only up to a certain point (and before John Snow death anyway). I must say that I appreciated reading and looking at it. It's certainly not really a tale for kids, since it's quite bloody and often creepy (not unusual in this age), but well built and presented anyway. The only problem is perhaps that You have to follow quite a lot of different stories and a crowd of important characters and, above all, that there's a merciless waste of important characters all over the series and introduction of new ones continuously. I like it and may find it interesting, but I guess a lot of people may find it hard to follow or rejoin occasionally. This guy I painted as a mild caricature, with the heavy eyeliner make-up and aspect, reminded me of what I used to see on TV on an Italian adventure cult book series by Emilio Salgari (he invented several characters and stories) which generations of Italians read: Sandokan, the Malaysian Tiger, with the Indian actor Kabir Bedi as the protagonist. The difference was that he had naturally wonderfully dark outlined green eyes and he wall tall and well built without any recourse to body building and other inflating tricks. A most successful TV series and a superstar among the ladies then. Thank You!

    Thank You, dear RedSaucer! A quite impressionistic approach and finishing, but I'm reaonably satisfied of this attempt as for likeness and expressivity. Lot to improve in this genre, but not the worst re-start after all.

    Glad You like it dear BOF! If YoannLori ever find time to issue a videotutorial or even a tutorial booklet, as You requested, I'd be ready to rush to Amazon site and pay for getting it. LOL

    He has a look about him. . . he'd be a formidable opponent. The style you came up with is sort of a hybrid between your character style, a little bit of Mad Magazine's Mort Drucker and Yoann's. It's a rather cool blend into your own. Very credible and distinct. Like Picasso is said to have said, "Good artists copy. Great artists steal." (paraphrasing) And by steal I think he meant they take the sense of art in the world yet make it their own. I think you have succeeded in that.

    Dear DAkey, citing a touch of the famed Mort Drucker and a pinch of Yoann as ingredients in my recipe is a particularly flattering sacrilege indeed, so I would thank You enthusiastically. Now I have to pay attention not to be spotted by neither Drogo possibly offended by my portrait nor the police willing to chardge me with style theft following a denunciation by Picasso ... LOL Anyway I'm rather supposed to be a negligent pupil of Tom Richmond, considering the only tutorial book on caricatures I have is by him!
