I love your art of Euron, and I was just wondering if you're planning on doing more anytime soon? The Crow's Eye is one of the coolest characters in the books imo :)

Thank you so much for your wonderful compliment. I absolutely share your opinion on Euron. He is one of the most awesome characters and I am interested in his story the most. Sadly, I am currently not at all inspired by A Song of Ice and Fire. I probably will be in the future, probably when the new book is out, but sooner than that, i sadly cannot promise you more Euron art.
Then again, inspiration is fickle, and might appear when I least expect it. :)

Nice job. I definitely like the confident smile and subtle blue lips! In my pinion he is the most interesting character so far in the series.

Thank you so much! I absolutely agree with that. He is definitely one of the most interesting characters. I hope we get to see a lot more of him in future books.

I want him in my harem (which would have Mance, Jorah and Roose too). How I'd keep them from killing off each other is another question.

Hot damn!

... I wanted to write something more constructive, but I've chosen to stare at the picture instead.
To distract myself I looked at the wall, only to find there another picture of Euron (by you as well), this time practically sans clothes.
So there.

I'm not really obsessed with Euron, I'm growing totally addicted to Jaime instead. But I can say it when I see a great piece of art. And this is one. Good character, great composition, and I love the details of the clothes. How do you make the embroidery ? brush, or hand ?

Thank you very much for the compliment! I am glad you like this piece. I agree with you on Jaime. He is certainly an awesome character.
Regarding your questions; a bit of both. First I use a brush to create the outline, and then I fill it in with shading (darker and lighter) to create a nice effect.

Why would anyone wonder why you draw a wicked, sexy character often? That question answers itself. ;)

I guess you are right about the 'obsession', but I thought people might ask themselves question since he is not such a likable character for most.

Lol. Yes, that pretty much means that I'll more than likely be painting more Euron piece in the feature. ;)

I checked out the post! Wow! It's awesome! I hope he will not 'lose' the second email you sent him, though I wouldn't be surprised, seeing as he is probably flooded with hundreds of emails each day. It's cool though, that he mentioned it.
