Girls of Westeros - Catelyn by martinacecilia Girls of Westeros - Catelyn by martinacecilia
I wanted to make a series titled "Strong Girls of westeros" but then when I was making the list of the characters I realized that there really are no "weak" women in Asoiaf serie. They are all, every single one amazingly strong in so many different ways. Which is amazing in a world where well written female characters are so rare. So it became just "Girls of westeros". 'Cause it was redundant.

With Catelyn I spent a lot of time trying to choose the animal silhouette behind her. I ended up choosing a wolf because even though she's not a born Stark she really did became one.

Remember: NO character bashing or GTFO.
And I still draw the characters the way I imagined them to be when I read the books. Keep that in mind.

Bellissima serie, davvero splendida!
Ognuna di loro rappresenta perfettamente il personaggio ed bello come tu abbia deciso di raffigurarle come le immagini e non come sono nel telefilm!! *O*
Ti ho mandato delle richieste per metterle nella gallery del mio fanclun delle Cronache del Ghiaccio e del Fuoco, spero vorrai condividerle con noi! :)

:D grazie mille!
Eh vabb, mi annoio a copiare le cose dal tf. Per me diventa un esercizio di stile e basta "vediamo se riesco a rendere questo naso uguale uguale a quello di quell'attore". Che ogni tanto faccio eh, ma rimane un freddo esercizio per me.
Oltretutto un filtro in pi rispetto allo scritto. preferisco interpretare un personaggio come lo vedo io piuttosto che interpretare l'interpretazione di qualche regista/produttore. E poi insomma, ci si annoia a vedere sempre le stesse cose. XD ecco.

Sono perfettamente d'accordo con tutto quello che hai detto! :D
Lo stesso Martin in un'intervista ha detto che anche lui immagina i personaggi come "da libro" e non come nel telefilm! ^^
E se lo dice lui... ;)
Comunque complimenti davvero!!! ^^

she's 33 in the books. Everyone is older for obvious reasons (sex and violence).
:D I love her, she's such a Lady with capital L. All I wanted to show was her dignity here.
And her hair! I think Grrm has some feticism for red hair.
