The Bird and the Hound by Kitty-Grimm The Bird and the Hound by Kitty-Grimm
My college final term has really been kicking me up the rear at the moment, so I decided that as busy as I am I think I can make a little time to do something for myself.

When I have had some rare time to myself, lately, I've been catching up on reading the Song of Ice and Fire series and I love it! It's been a while since I've read something new that I could really get my teeth into and the show is great too. I'm reading the second book now and so far my favourite character in the series is Sansa Stark, probably because I can relate to her the most. I was always a bit of a Sansa, especially when I was her age.

Naturally, her relationship with Sandor fascinates me. Sandor himself fascinates me, in fact, and while I haven't yet figured him out (knowing where I'm at in the series, so far), his contrast with Sansa really interests me, especially seeing as their relationship is a bit of a grittier take on Beauty and the Beast.

I'm so sorry I couldn't fit the whole thing in here, but my scanner is weird. Still, I'm really happy with the results and while the characters themselves are referenced from my own visions of them, I couldn't resist keeping their costumes in the show, especially Sansa's GORGEOUS rose dress.

whilst i too am fascinated by the dynamic between them, and whilst this is on the whole a lovely piece, the proportions are really jarring. her skull is literally half the size of his :/

*A* this is sooooo so so incredibly beautiful!
I love SanSan and I think this artwork is definitely amongst the most beautiful works out there.
It's such a lovely idea and I love how you placed the characters. Like in a book from the middle ages.
very very very great piece of art!

Thank you! That was actually the idea. I figured since Sansa loves stories so much, it would suit the design. I love SanSan too.

Considering G.R.R.Martin was a writer/producer for the 90's t.v series B&B, yeah, you got it right.

This is such a beautiful design with the sword and flowers. Just great. Only tiny thing- even though they burned the right side of his face in the tv series- in the book he's actually burnt on the left (which wouldn't be visible from this side). But doesn't matter. It's so nice./
