Winterfell bath by martinacecilia Winterfell bath by martinacecilia
I sketched this few months ago when I was reading A dance With Dragons.
(I have probably already said that Theon's POV were my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE of that book)

Theon and Jeyne from A song of ice and fire.

Omfg I didn't know there was someone else out there who liked Theon's POV as much as I do. I thought maybe I'm just weird... XD

Thank you for this, it just made me squirm for five minutes. In a good way, I mean. ;)

much as i find theon's story tragic and fascinating, and much as i feel that he and jeyne have a connection, i can't ship it. he's a wreck of a human being and i doubt he's in any state to form a relationship with anyone, plus... jeyne would have to be an uncommon person to look past theon's ghastly, ruined body and shattered mind to see a person with whom she could fall in love. i'm not saying that it's impossible, but it seems unlikely to me. still, this image is beautifully done.

I love this, so so much. I agree, Theon's POVs have easily become my favorites. And his chapter in TWOW? My all time favorite chapter in all of ASOIAF.

Honestly, when the series started I couldn't stomach Jeyne nor Theon. Her, being the unrealistic wistful privileged daughter and him being the untouchable guest of a snob. However, I did feel worried when Jeyne disappeared and Theon was captured. Then, when their stories met, I felt a deep love for them. Poor Jeyne only wanted someone to swoop her off her feet. However, when book six comes out (Hurry up, George! You're killing me over here!) I really hope they come to love each other. Broken and discarded as individuals but strong, solid, and complete together.

I never liked either of these characters but I felt so sorry for them through all this.
duslawa Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2013
So depressing, just like all Theon's chapters in adwd. Love your style, and expressions you gave them! They are so resigned :(

i like your style) and in fact, i like Theon as a character because i understand him and his decisions)
SkyCendre Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
awesome drawing, that scene was very tough (as every and each one of them including Theon in aDwD).
GinevraInLove Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hate Theon seems to be impossible. BTW, I'm at this part of ADWD and it's really, really sad... :iconcryingplz:
Marlacanroar Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Yeah, I really like Theon's POV it A Dance with Dragons. I'm finishing it know. I always think Theon is a complex character, but I get veeeeery angry with him in A Clash of Kings, because, uh...why did you have to do that, fucking Greyjoy?!!! But I didn't hate him (I really don't know why, but I couldn't). Then, in A Dance with Dragons, I was like 'you deserve it' but at the same time I was like 'poor Theon, come on, remember who you are, save Jeyne!' And, finally, when I finished the chapter of Asha where he appeared with Jeyne at the end I said: 'Gods, I think I really like the fucking turncloak!' (really, I said it in a loud voice)

I love your drawing.

Hoping you have undertanded me (my English isn't very good, I know, I'm Spanish),

martinacecilia Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Professional General Artist
yeah, Theon tends to be an emotional rollercoaster for most of fans.
On the other hand try to see his perspective, he has to choose between his family and the family who kidnapped him. He may be friend with Robb but his choice is still VERY understandable. I'd do it too. Other than that what's usually been hated about is the killing of those 2 poor children... but that's not even by far the most horrid thing that's been done in that book series. Let's remember that Robb sent thousands of people to die in a battle he had no hope to win as a mere feint because he needed to distract the Lannister army.....
Marlacanroar Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Totally agree. But I think the most horrible decision Robb has made in his hall life is to marry Jeyne. I hate Freys, but marry her was the most stupid decision that a character has made in the hole books...I don't know what I'd do in Theon's situation, but his decision was totally logical...(and, besause of taking that decision, we have one of the funniest moments of the books: his meeting with Asha ;) )

Ams7eL Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
When I first read the Reek chapter in ADWD I was like, "No, this can't be - it can't be him!" Then I was like, "Major burn, turncloak!"

Beautiful picture.
shoemy Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
You know my feelings for Theon are really conflicted. At first I just felt bad for the guy, being taken away from his family, and trying to be part of one in which he had no place. Then, in ACOK, I started to hate him; not because he betrayed the Starks -I mean, half of Westeros betrays the other half in these books- but because he was trying to be two completely different men, to please two completely different kind of people; instead of being just himself and someone new. Later, in ADWD, I started to feel sympathy for him -not for the stupid, fearful boy who acted as a dog and obeyed his master’s every command- but for the guy who seeks a chance to redeem himself.

Oh, and totally hate Ramsay, for me he is just a sadistic fool, who, in my opinion, would worse than Joffrey if he had the power.

And for all of you out there defending Joffrey, stop, he doesn’t deserves it; I mean sure, he was just a kid, but when I was thirteen it never passed through my mind treating with brutal violence the people I didn’t like, no matter how grave the quarrel.
martinacecilia Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Professional General Artist
You bring interesting an point here. It is indeed true what you're saying about Theon trying to be someone he's not but let's always remember he's a teen. he's what, 18? 19? something like that. That's the age when you don't know who you are, and you keep trying to find an identity. He is bound to try to be someone he's not.
I love theon, he's one of the most conflicted and well constructed characters of the series. And we're talking about a series FULL of conflicted and well constructed characters! :D

(I myself appreciate both Ramsay and Joffrey not as persons/characters but because sadistic characters always bring excellent narrative. So I'm always pleased when they come into the scene.)
KelpyKrad Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm totally agree with you, Theon is one of my favorite characters by now.
ghouling Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2012
This is so pretty! Love the mood, despite the obvious distress Jeyne is going through. Your colors are beautiful.
Hex-of-Blades Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
A very beautiful piece, well done
AAgurl789 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
yeah..reek's chapters was the highlight on adwd since the other chapters were blah imo..and yes i do feel for theon. He's one of my fav now... I mean how could you not when he's so broken down with missing toes, fingers, and having to beg for it to be taken away, laying with ramsay's b*tches, and all. I think that theon had suffered a lot. and the part where he talks to the heart tree since that's his only companion =(
Servatia83 Featured By Owner May 19, 2012
Dear me the poor sod. I never liked him, then actively hated him, and now I want to cry. Can't he go somewhere quiet with Jeyne and breed sheep or something? I do so hope he'll live.

Theon and his plight made me want to write something and your picture gave me the prompt. This is what came out: [link]

Oh, and I agree with one of the commenters, I thought of the Last Unicorn too when I saw the picture. *smiles*
Funnygirl11 Featured By Owner May 16, 2012
This is just gorgeous! I've just started reading the books as well. Is this a scene from one of them?
martinacecilia Featured By Owner May 16, 2012  Professional General Artist
yes, the last one. But a "not on screen" canon scene. They tell us it happens but we don't really see it.
jane3009 Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
*had half a mind :P sorry
jane3009 Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
I agree with you, Theon's POVs were absolutely amazing. Never before have I gone from completely despising a character to loving him/her. Not even with Jaime. And people are more willing to forgive Jaime than Theon, which I find totally unfair. Jaime did push an eight year old out of a window and he half a mind to harm Sansa as well. Plus, Jaime was beloved by all before the whole "Kingslayer" thing, and in any case, he still had Cersei to love him and his father's devotion as well. Unlike poor Theon, who has spurned by the Greyjoys and never had a place with the Starks. And this piece is lovely, I love it so much. You're amazing :D
Oximore Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
Theon & Jeyne Poole are two of my favourite characters. ;_;
This is gorgeous.

I'm still on the 3rd book and i used to like Theon's pov until what he did to winterfell . I guess i should finish reading before i go to hating his character completely
martinacecilia Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2011  Professional General Artist
Well, he redeems in adwd but many people continue to hate him for that. I honestly didn't hate him at that point: is not like he owed the Starks anything, they killed great part of his family, kidnapped him and forced him to be cheerful about it when he was just a kid. Sort of the same thing that happened to Sansa (but without the crazy abusive boy-king of course, he's one of a kind).
He's just an 18 years old trying to fit somewhere. The Starks never allowed him to fit among them, now he's just trying to fit in his own home. I mean, there are people in westeros who did worst things for worst reasons in my opinion.
brook-chan Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
When you put it that way I can agree. I do keep forgetting that they are young. Like i said i'm right in the middle of the 3rd book and I keep thinking to myself "What else can these poor kids go through?!"
Anyways I thought your picture was great and i can't wait to get to that part of in the story.
martinacecilia Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2011  Professional General Artist
Actually one of my favorite things of ALL in asoiaf is that kids are actually kids. They may play acting like adults but the errors they do are really fitting their age.
I like that. It's something you rarely see in literature.
