I had a strong desire to draw all four of the Greyjoy's, and the only way I could fit them all in one pic was by drawing a poster-like representation of the Kingsmoot. From right to left we have Euron, Aeron, Victarion and Asha.

Many thanks to ~bananorama for suggesting and to ^ArtisticAunJuli for featuring my art on Daily Deviation.

Kingsmoot by ~arkoniel. From the suggester: Kingsmoot depicts a pivotal scene from the fourth book of A Song of Ice and Fire. The cinematic stances of the four members of house Greyjoy, combined with the mix of neutrals and jewel tones, suits the books to a tee, and the artist is duly considered one of the best artists in the cozy Song fandom."

You don't count Theon as a greyjoy?

Oh I do, he just was not one of the four Greyjoys who was at the Kingdsmoot. But if I am honest, he never was a character I much liked. I didn't hate him, or anything. He just never captured my attention. I tend to only illustrate those characters in my free time from any novel, that DID capture my attention and I ignore the rest. :)

Oh I know that he was not at the kingsmoot but you stated "strong desire to draw the four greyjoys" and then you picked the kingsmoot, so it sorta implied that your intention was to draw the greyjoys and the kingsmoot was just the occasion that you settled on, not the other way around, if your intention was to draw the kingsmoot from the get go then it would make perfect sense why Theon was not included as he was not there. I can understand why people might not consider him a real greyjoy but was curious if you saw him as one or not.

Thanks.

Oh, I am so sorry! Bad wording on my part. I'll reword this right now. What I was referring at was the Greyjoys ON the Iron Islands, which to me excluded Theon.

I believe this is the most accurate depiction of House Greyjoy.....In the HBO series the actress that portraits Asha/Yara doesn't convinced me. Hope that the casting for Euron, Victarion and Aeron be something like this.

Thank you ever so much for the wonderful compliment! I am overjoyed to hear you like how I represented them here. I really hope they will pick fitting actors too for the Greyjoys, but it's hard to satisfy everyone, I know, so I am not going to disappointed if it's not exactly what I imagined. :D But I am glad you like my representations of them.

Every of your ASoIaF pics is overly gorgeous, but this is my favourite: four Krakens in one vivid, breathing art piece, what else can this one wish for? :drool:
Damphair looks typically loony, Asha -- determined, Crow's Eye -- wicked but utterly alluring, Victarion... That's the first time I've actually noticed Victarion. So far I was passing by him as if he was merely something grey in the background. But this Vic is handsome as well as manly. I'll gladly add my voice to those who beg you for more Victarion art. :worship:

I wonder if they're going to change the names of Aeron and/or Euron in the show. Since the two names can be confused.

You seem to be able to capture the perfect moods and characters of everyone. It stuns me how we can both picture characters based on their actions/descriptions but you can draw them to the last detail with not just facial features and colorings, but also how they carry themselves, their expressions ( a pain to do for many, but you do it effortlessly!), and everything. Wow, wow, wow. Don't ever stop.

Is it possible I never commented on this thing of beauty? I love them all. Euron looks sexy as always and his "u mad bro?" smile... :D And Victarion's hair. So silky... and those silver strands make him hot. Even our mad prohet looks good... in a Jochanaan-from-Salome way.
