… AND FULL OF TERROR.
Melisandre of Asshai, Priestess of R'hllor
From A Song of Ice and Fire
© George R.R. Martin
I based her off how I saw her when reading the books and thus did not reference Carice van Houten who portrays her in HBO's Game of Thrones
I did not look her up or re-read before I started, but based my concept roughly on what of her appearance I still remembered from the books: pale skin, heart-shaped face, the necklace, hair colour. Her dress tho is a bit more inspired by the show
One of the things I was inspired by when doing my sketch was Maleficent from Disney's Sleeping Beauty
and a very clean symmetrical 50s illustration style in general, like movie posters from the time.
So, I hope you like it
