Two sample pages from my Dorne themed design zine I’m working on, “Spears of the Sun.” The zine walks through a visual development series of myself redesigning my own version of Dorne from A Song of Ice and Fire. The designs are made to sort-of fit with the show, but an extra step back towards the books, kind of like if it were for a Game of Thrones video game. The zine will cover things like Sunspear City, clothing/armor, weapons, etc, and will be free up here and on artstation.
In celebration of tonight’s Game of Thrones, I wanted to share with y’all a sneak peak at the WIP’s of some parts of a Dorne themed zine I’m putting together. Right now I’m working on these portraits of my designs for Arianne Martell and Gerold “Darkstar” Dayne.

CHAMPIONS REASSEMBLED Part 1
ICEMAN, one of the most powerful mutants within the Marvel Universe, discovers his powers and his outlook on life evolving. He needs to lead the charge with a team who stand proudly by his side in the war to “protect those who can’t protect themselves.” Hercules, Ghost Rider, Black Widow, Darkstar, and Angel re-unite with Marvel’s fearless frozen fighter setting ICEMAN on an all-new path. As more unexpected enemies emerge, can Bobby mature into the warrior he’s destined to become? Hope he survives the experience!
In the past there have been many perfect Wonder Women, in my head at least. Lynda Carter of course, but also dream picks like Lucy Lawless. I partnered with the amazing rickcelis to create my perfect Wonder Woman cast for right now. Check it out!
Lupita Nyong’o as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman
For the main role of Diana I wanted someone likable, beautiful beyond belief, and resilient and that for me is Lupita. She’s young, charming, and won’t back down from any task, no matter how difficult. The majority of script believability would be handled with this one piece of casting. (alt.: Gugu Mbatha-Raw or Danai Gurira)
Viola Davis as Queen Hippolyta
I came thiiiiiiis close to going with Gina Torres, especially once Viola was cast as Amanda Waller, but Viola just exudes regal to me - and a dreamcast doesn’t have to have cinematic universe continuity. She has the warmth needed as a mother and the ferocity necessary as a warrior queen, and to see her go toe to toe with anyone I would dare write into her scenes would be the ultimate pleasure. (alt.: Gina Torres or Erika Alexander)
Quvenzhané Wallis as Donna Troy / Wonder Girl
For the choice of Diana’s sometime-sister and most-of-the-time-whatever-the-writers-need-her-to-be, I picked the luminous Quvenzhané Wallis. She is (like the others) a fantastic award-winning and Oscar-nominated actress and not only can she sport her natural hair and make it appear as the crown it was rooted to be, because of her continuing evolution as an actress who is so rooted at her young age, it will be fantastic to see her cinematic journey from Wonder Girl to Troia.
