2004 Fantasy Flight Games

** UPDATE **

WOW, a DD! <3 Thanks to ^Lyricanna for picking it, and thanks to everyone for looking, commenting and faving! And don't forget, there's prints etc. available if you want a copy for your own. :)

****

** UPDATE 2 - A note on technique **

I used a Motion Blur on the sand to get it to look nice. Several years back I did a tutorial for Epilogue.net about that and other uses for Motion Blur in Photoshop: tutorials.epilogue.net/digital… (This picture was featured as an example on Page 4). Take a look - it's a great tool for lots of unexpected things.

****

Way back in late 2003 I began doing cards for Fantasy Flight's "Game of Thrones" CCG. In honor of the new series on HBO I thought I'd post a few of these.

One thing I loved about doing these cards was all the many physical environments I got to depict, as the far-reaching story takes place in so many different locales.

Game of Thrones: Spearmaiden by ~PatrickMcEvoy has great attention to lighting and tone. The sand is very realistic and the skin shading is very smooth. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

No idea - I never read that one! But apparently they also exist in the Game of Thrones world.. Somewhere... (Actually the description for this character came from the AD and, presumably, Mr. Martin. I never read the part that describes her myself).

PatrickMcEvoy Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011  Professional General Artist
Yes, I did all the direwolves from the first book for the card game. I don't have any of those up online, but there is a Feral Direwolf up on my old (old, OLD!) Epilogue.net gallery: [link]

That's just a generic wild Direwolf card, not really one that's connected to the characters. Glad you liked it!

oh ok, yes, I love to read:) so, in my mind, the direwolves are so great as character pieces
