I’ve been away on vacation before school and while I was gone I managed to do some drawing though it’s mostly doodles of characters I’ve never really tried to draw before or had time to. Though in Vyse’s case it’s more like I haven’t drawn him since I was a kid… it’s weird drawing him after all these years
If you’re interested in seeing my doodles as I do them you can always check out my twitter!
Awesome ASOIAF Characters You May Not Remember Because You Only Watch Game of Thrones: Quaithe
A user suggested I write about Quaithe, and I thought “I think she was on the show but I don’t remember.” (I had a similar experience when Maester Cressen was suggested.) I think it’s easy to lose some of these characters in the shuffle, and that’s unfortunate.
This is Quaithe as she appeared on Game of Thrones. She was in two episodes in season two, and then was apparently forgotten about. Poor Laura Pradelska had to try to pull of wearing this weird mask on her face. Like “oh this old thing? I forgot I had it on.”
Her dress is kind of nice though. I could probably wear that tomorrow and no one would know I was cosplaying.
This is how Quaithe is drawn by artist Sara Biddle for the Fantasy Flight Games:
In the books, Quaithe is described as wearing a red, lacquered mask. (I just read that, on the show, they made Quaithe’s mask of hexagons because they wanted to link her to Melisandre, who wears a similar necklace. I worry that the costumers are thinking about this more than the writers.)
In any case, Quaithe is from Asshai, like Melisandre. They are both “shadowbinders” and we don’t really know what that means except that they can do magic. Quaithe first appears to Dany in the Red Waste, with Pyat Pree and Xaro Xhoan Daxos, and again in dreams and in a vision at the Great Pyramid of Meereen. She urges Dany to come to Asshai and to be wary of those who come to “see” her dragons (that they want the power for themselves).
Dany isn’t sure if Quaithe is an enemy or a “dangerous friend.” But Quaithe continues to turn up and warn her about stuff.
The glass candles are burning. Soon comes the pale mare, and after her the others. Kraken and dark flame, lion and griffin, the sun’s son and the mummer’s dragon. Trust none of them. Remember the Undying. Beware the perfumed seneschal.
Perhaps it is wise the show didn’t bring Quaithe in to make this warning in Meereen. It wouldn’t make much sense considering that the kraken (Victarion Greyjoy), griffin (Jon Connington), dark flame (Moqorro), and the sun’s son (Quentyn Martell) have not yet appeared on the show. Having her pop up and say “Tyrion Lannister is coming!” doesn’t have the same mystique.
Did someone say kid!Crash doing martial arts?? 😅 Have a taunting cutie who can beat anyone up. I finally had enough diamonds to buy the quest and he’s just to precious. I wanted to take a quick break from requests and do my own thing. I haven’t drawn traditionally for nearly 3 weeks. It feels so weird but I’m gonna get back into my mojo one day.
A/N: don’t know if anyone even particularly enjoys my biadore efforts but I’m sorry I’m such an erratic writer! I wanted this to be better but hey, I wrote it in one evening and decided I may do it in parts - if anyones interested?? I would really appreciate feedback if someone has time to give it! much love ~ little darling
