Vision – Does the artwork present or reflect a point of view, theme or idea?
While I do feel as if that this piece reflects the Stark half quite well, I feel like the Lannister half should have more of a 'fiery' feeling to it, rather than the 'summer' feeling I got from it.

Originality – Is the artwork fresh or new in its style, execution or approach? Is it something you haven’t seen before in its particular genre? Does it surprise you?
I'll admit it, I rated down a bit because of there being both a canine and feline present. Let's face it, felines and canines are a bit overused. The theme of fire and ice isn't a new one as well.

Technique – Was the artwork skillfully created? Does the artist exhibit advanced knowledge of the medium and/or bring special focus to the craft of the medium used.
I do like the general style of this piece. The grass however, I feel is the major part that still looks somewhat unprofessional. Everything else manages to looks professional without looking entirely realistic, through the style of shading and coloring used, but the grass looks slightly more stylized than if you had just used a Photoshop brush and placed it on the piece.

Impact – Does the artwork resonate with you or evoke strong emotions? Does it make you think? Does it blow your mind?
The piece does bring an impact in how well drawn/colored it is, but I'm not getting much emotion from it. I think the background kind of isn't giving the same feeling as the characters are. It seems passive in a way.


Final Thoughts
A very well drawn and colored piece, with emotional characters, but a bit is lacking in the background's energy when compared to the direwolf and lion. Maybe more contrast should be used between the winter half and summer half? Perhaps the summer half should be more intense, so as to better to capture the title's theme, A Song of Ice and Fire?

Love the series, looking forward to getting my hands on the first season of the show and excited for the second season in production.

This image is very amazing! I love the color affects and the way you shaded it. I also adore the background. And now for a little critique. I hope it's okay. ^^

~Anatomy~

You have a good ida on the anatomy, but I see a couple common errors with the lion.

For one thing, you made the sheath of the lion in the same place you'd find the sheath of a male canine, when in fact, all felines have their sheath a lot shorter, more-so in the form of a ball, more towards under the tail than the belly, where you have the lion's sheath placed. See this example photo bellow as a great example of how the "privates" of felines are formed.

~> [link]

Also, to me the heels of the lion are quite high...see this photo if you don't see what I mean. If I am wrong on the heals, then please forgive me. XD
[link]

I must also state that the lion is quite short when it comes to the length of the torso. Lions are usually quite long and have a more bulgy-belly feel to their torsos.

And the final thing I'd like to point out is how tiny the lion looks. Lions are usually larger than wolves. If this lion was truly to be this small compared to the wolf he's fighting, he'd still be in hi cub stage, and just starting to grow out his mane.

That's all I can really point out for now, despite the fact both animals lack shadow under them. This is an amazing image though. Keep up the gorgeous work!

cool artwork, but it is a direwolf, its head and legs should be larger proportionate to the size of the body, and also it should be 3-5 times larger than the lion.

ClaireLyxa Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you.
I don't agree. A direwolf is not 3-5 time larger that the lion. That would mean that the length of the direwolf would about 6-10 m! It is really too much! No for me a direwolf has the size of a lion approximately. And it is big for a wolf!

:iconfamouskenneth:
famouskenneth Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013
The direwolf should be the size of a small horse, a lion is approximate 250 kg, and a horse could be 550 kg, the direwolf should be almost twice as heavy as the lion, and therefore much bigger.

Not 3-5 times larger, but twice the size in mass.

Great artwork, and i envy your skills.

No the direwore has the size of a poney [link]. And be careful, you can not compare the weight! Two animals with the same size have not always the same weight!
We don't have more details about the morphology of direwolf. So it is possible that a direwolf has a the same size as a lion, because there are poney with the same size ;)

Thank you very much :):)

C'est vrai que ce sont de gros pavés. Mais n'étant pas une grande lectrice, ils sont quand même sympa à lire. Les premiers plus que les derniers, car je trouve que l'auteur blablate un peu trop maintenant et ne raconte pas grand chose au final. Un peu comme les Harry Potter.

Tu ne peux pas nier sur le fait, que plus les tomes passent plus ils sont longs? Et ils ne racontes pas beaucoup plus de choses pour les pages qu'ils ont de plus en plus.
Le meilleur exemple est le tome 5 : il ne raconte pas grand chose : et pourtant c'est un pavé. (j'exclu le tome 7, car celui est vraiment bien!)
Mais ne t'en fait pas, je ne critique pas HP, j'adore cette histoire, et lire ces livres est vraiment agréable. C'est juste que je remarque que pour pas mal d'auteurs, quand ils sont dans leur histoire : ils racontent et décrivent de plus en plus, ce qui alourdit le livre et n'apporte pas nécessairement grand chose à l'histoire.

De mon point de vu, je te conseille de lire les GOT, car j'ai aussi passé un super moment, et cette histoire est juste géniale, avec des intrigues de partout. Le point fort de cette série, c'est qu'on suit l'histoire de différents points de vu, et au final on se met à aimer les gens qu'on détestait au début! lol

Les descriptions dans HP sont nécessaires et ne sont pas de trop, contrairement à, par exemple, les bouquins de Diana Gabaldon or something like that, ou c'est carrément du décrivage de jardin pendant 15 pages. .o.

Ouais, mais là, j'ai peur de me mélangé dans les persos. XD Enfin bon, j'verrai.

Oui au niveau des descriptions il n'y a pas d'abus dans HP, c'est juste que je trouve que certains livres sont bien gros pour ce qu'ils racontent : en gros dans certains livres, il ne se passe pas grand chose et on suit un lycéen classique avec ses problèmes.

Oui dans GOT il y a vraiment trop de perso. Je suis moi même perdue parfois.

Whoa, Simba's pissed. Go the North and the Starks! God, I really hope one of them shoves a dagger in Jofferey, I think it'd be poetic justice if it was Sansa. I absolutely love the muscles in the lion, you can really point out each of them. I would say the wolf was a bit too small, cause the direwolves were huge buggers, but I'm trying to picture them on all fours to get an estimate by comparison. I know it's fire and ice, south and north, but I would've liked to have seen a raven flying past in the background to represent the Watchers on The Wall.

Ahahah fuck, the reviewers have no idea about the source material.

First if anything the wolf should be bigger. It's a direwolf, from a fantasy book. They're huge.

Second, it's from A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE. And two of the great houses sigils are the direwolf of Stark, and the lion of lannister. The only thing is Starks and Lannisters aren't exactly ice and fire...

Why do you post this kind of message? What is the purpose? To be unpleasant?
So to answer :

First the wolf IS big! If you compare the wolf with the lion, we will see that he is big! In average a lion is long of 2 m and a wolf a little more of 1 m. So, we can see in the drawing that the wolf is big!

"Second, it's from A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE. And two of the great houses sigils are the direwolf of Stark, and the lion of lannister. The only thing is Starks and Lannisters aren't exactly ice and fire" Yes I agree with that, where is the problem? It is because I chose as title :"a song of ice and fire"?

Rah la la je dévore le dernier tome (VF) c'est une catastrophe je vais encore devoir attendre trop longtemps après T_T

Bref, que dire...si ce n'est que l'idée est fantastique <3
J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance, la neige touchée par les lueurs oranges et les arbres nus, gris-bleus coté Stark, avec les ombres portées. C'est vraiment très beau !
Coté Lannister, l'herbe et les trouées de lumière rendent super bien, c'est plein de détails, avec les petites fleurs qui émergent, et les rochers polis :love:
Le lion est superbe aussi ! Mais je trouve que l'encrage de Wolf a fait disparaitre ton style, dommage !
Les seuls défauts que je pourrais trouver, c'est le manque d'ombres portées sur la neige du loup, comme celles des arbres, mais je ne sais pas à qui attribuer ça xD
Et le ciel, qui a de belles couleurs, mais je le trouve un chouia terne et opaque. Il manque un peu de profondeur c'est dommage aussi ! Mais sinon, vraiment du très très beau travail !

Bravo les filles <3

Merci beaucoup pour ton commentaire Clémi :):)

Oui c'est dingue comme l'encrage peut faire changer le style. Je n'aurais pas cru. Je reconnais à peine mon lion.

Mais oui tu as tout à fait raison, il manque l'ombre pour le loup. Comment j'ai pu oublié ça, par contre pour le lion, je ne pense pas qu'elle soit visible, car il est bien trop haut pour qu'on voit l'ombre (selon moi, mais je peux me tromper)
Oui il manque de vie ce ciel, comme le reste de la colo, les couleurs sont trop pastels.
On va dire qu'il y a plein de poussières dans l'air, c'est pour ça que tout est plus terne :p

En tout cas merci :hug:

Non je suis d'accord, je pense que ce n'est pas nécessaire pour le lion, avec l'herbe ça passe bien =)
ça manque un peu de peps pour les couleurs, mais d'un coté ça ajoute une ambiance lourde comme ce que l'on peut ressentir dans les livres, ce duel éternel entre les 2 maisons, donc ça colle bien ;)

J'adore en tout cas :) Je trouve que le lion est le plus superbe des deux persos, et pourtant on sait que j'aime les loups .. mais il a une telle prestence, il a un style vraiment pas disney comme on en voit trop et jsais pas, la colo et le rendu lumière/ombres est extra.
L'ambiance sur le dessin est vraiment bien :) Vos talents mixés à deux font des merveilles, à quand la prochaine ? ;)

Le gars met 5 ans à sortir un tome, il y en reste 2. C'est trop long d'attendre!!!! Je ne connaîtrais la fin que dans 10 ans.... :(:(

Merci beaucoup pour ton commentaire. Et bien pour le lion, on peut dire que c'est le mixage de nos deux genres, car j'avais au départ encré moi même le lion (tu peux en voir un aperçu ici : [link]), et le fait que Wolf250 ré-encre à sa manière a totalement changé la donne. Ça doit être ça qui fait que le genre ne fait pas disney, car le miens a quelques similitudes avec.

Encore merci. Je suis contente de voir que cette collab a plu.
