I got the idea of the project about half a year ago. So much time has passed since then and the result looks pretty different from what I thought it would be in the beginning. Seems like the delay turned out to be a good thing after all.
This is a start of a series of illustrations that interpret the Seven Kingdoms’ houses from Game of Thrones. The first illustration is dedicated to one of the main and oldest heroes, House of Stark.
An update of my personal series of illustrations called ‘Bestiary’. One of the most famous hybrids of ancient times – Manticore. Aspects of the creature vary from story to story. Basically, it has the body of a red lion, a human head with three rows of sharp teeth (like a shark) and sometimes bat-like wings.
