red priests

The deceiver

The cover that I did for @houseofmelkor‘s fantastic Dark Lords magazine featuring Sauron in his fair form when he was a high priest in Numenor and influenced the king to build a temple in Morgoth’s name and have sacrifices. (ok so the eye was a bit inaccurate T T ) I have quite a neat process for this because I was practising my greyscale to colour process so if anyone is interested in seeing it let me know?

asoiaf meme - [6] locations: Asshai

The dark city by the Shadow is a city steeped in sorcery. Warlocks, wizards, alchemists, moonsingers, red priests, black alchemists, necromancers, aeromancers, pyromancers, bloodmages, torturers, inquisitors, poisoners, godswives, night-walkers, shapechangers, worshippers of the Black Goat and the Pale Child and the Lion of Night, all find welcome in Asshai-by-the-Shadow, where nothing is forbidden. Here they are free to practice their spells without restraint or censure, conduct their obscene rites, and fornicate with demons if that is their desire.

Most sinister of all the sorcerers of Asshai are the shadowbinders, whose lacquered masks hide their faces from the eyes of gods and men.

These are the One Coin Figurines that have the Bakuras as figurines! They also have 2 ‘secret’ ones per set, Yami Bakura for series 1 and Kisara for series 2.

They’re all so cute! <3

Daenerys + wanting a normal life

  • Dany could hear the singing of the red priests as they lit their night fires and the shouts of ragged children playing games beyond the walls of the estate. For a moment she wished she could be out there with them, barefoot and breathless and dressed in tatters, with no past and no future and no feast to attend at Khal Drogo’s manse. – AGOT
  • “We will have it all back someday, sweet sister,” he would promise her. Sometimes his hands shook when he talked about it. “The jewels and the silks, Dragonstone and King’s Landing, the Iron Throne and the Seven Kingdoms, all they have taken from us, we will have it back.” Viserys lived for that day. All that Daenerys wanted back was the big house with the red door, the lemon tree outside her window, the childhood she had never known. – AGOT
  • Once on a voyage to Braavos, as she’d watched the crew wrestle down a great green sail in a rising gale, she had even thought how fine it would be to be a sailor. – ASOS
  • In her dream they had been man and wife, simple folk who lived a simple life in a tall stone house with a red door. – ADWD
  • If she had been some ordinary woman, she would gladly have spent her whole life touching Daario, tracing his scars and making him tell her how he’d come by every one. I would give up my crown if he asked it of me, Dany thought… – ADWD

Another bunch of bookmark sketches (here were the others). But I think I have enough now. I would like to get them ready for a convention in early March… but I don’t know if I can do all of them… The won’t definetly be paintings, maybe some lineart-stuff. It may be better with the relatively small size anyway.

Tried to get some of you suggestions done in these :>
The one with Mokuba at the end is a little more manga canon. I like capsule monster chess and I wanted to make one bookmark with it.
For the one with Bakura… I just had no cool idea for it. I like Bakura, but my mind goes blank if I’m trying to draw Ryou :T

I hope these sketches aren’t too rough and you can understand what I were trying to draw :’D This is the messyness I usually don’t post.

Dany went to her window and looked out wistfully on the waters of the bay. The square brick towers of Pentos were black silhouettes outlined against the setting sun. Dany could hear the singing of the red priests as they lit their night fires and the shouts of ragged children playing games beyond the walls of the estate. For a moment she wished she could be out there with them, barefoot and breathless and dressed in tatters, with no past and no future and no feast to attend at Khal Drogo’s manse.

Somewhere beyond the sunset, across the narrow sea, lay a land of green hills and flowered plains and great rushing rivers, where towers of dark stone rose amidst magnificent blue-grey mountains, and armored knights rode to battle beneath the banners of their lords. The Dothraki called that land Rhaesh Andahli, the land of the Andals. In the Free Cities, they talked of Westeros and the Sunset Kingdoms.
