Greyjoy's castle, ASOIAF... by MarcSimonetti Greyjoy's castle, ASOIAF... by MarcSimonetti
This is the cover art for " A song of ice and fire" by GRR Martin.

I tried to depict the mood around Greyjoy's castle. The knight symbolizes the other part of the kingdom more than a "real" character from the book itself.

I hope you'll like it!

Thanks a lot! In fact, there's no photo ref involved, this feeling may come from my custom made cloud brush maybe?

You definitely did a great job capturing the sullen, gloomy feeling of the keep. :) I always pictured the wooden bridges to be higher above the water, but your interpretation is no less valid. Beautiful painting!
