Blackwater by CourtneyTrowbridge Blackwater by CourtneyTrowbridge
My first ASOIAF artwork featuring Sansa Stark and Sandor Clegane, the Hound, in their Battle of the Blackwater scene in King's Landing.

All characters belong to GRRM.

I love this pairing (obviously, if I spent all this time creating this) so please, no character hate in the comments. Thank you!

Haha, right!?  He's not my favorite character for nothin'.  I try hard to make him menacing, but he always comes out way sexier than he probably should be (though I maintain defense that we're told his mug's pretty frightening by Ned and an 11-year old girl....so maybe not really the best judges).

Thanks!! I really appreciate it. :D Armor is fun...I'm always impressed by others' ability to make it so shiny!!  But Sandor, he's not really a shiny kind of guy.

I love this pairing too! Almost like Beauty and the Beast but way better b/c Sandor is such complex character

As much as he HATES being called a knight, it'd be so ironic, and so like Martin, if Sandor was the only character in the series to win the heart of a fair princess.

...And maybe slay a dragon. With his fear of fire, it'd be even more heroic than it usually is.

Haha, it's true. The longer I stared at his face while making this, the gentler he looked. It's my romanticism coming out perhaps. Thanks for your comment!!

Thank you so much!! I'm really itching to do this scene over again, but I think it should be a 2-year anniversary piece (since I posted this) so I'll have to wait until the fall then....I'm not sure I want to wait that long.

The light coming from the windows is amazing! It is so bright and vivid, yet it is obviously nighttime. I don't know how you managed to pull that off.

Hey! I know this awesome SanSan painting!

It so good to also find your beautiful work posted here! This stunningly detailed Night of the Blackwater scene has to be without a doubt, one my favorite SanSan pieces. :)

And let me just thank you once again for all the much appreciated advice on CG Textures and PS CS5. All that info was truly a great help to me.

Truly looking forward to seeing more art work from you posted here and/or on LJ in the near future.

Hiii! Thank you SO much for your comments - they make me so happy. :) I'm sorry I'm so hideously bad at keeping in touch through my various websites and profiles at times. I should set up some forwards to my gmail hehe.

But it was truly a pleasure to pass on my little tidbits like the CG Textures website (seriously LOVE that site). I hope you're enjoying your new copy of PS and please feel free to email me (my profile name at gmail) if you have any other questions. Happy to help and that's definitely the quick way to get in touch with me.

I should have more cartoon characters up soon, too!
