The Iron Throne, GRR Martin by MarcSimonetti The Iron Throne, GRR Martin by MarcSimonetti
This is the cover art for the first tome of "A song of fire and ice" By GRR Martin, for Random House Mexico.

I hope you'll like it!

Very best wishes,

Marc

edit: THIS ONE IS NOT THE "REAL IRON THRONE"... It's a previous version, there are several things that don't fit:

The size of the swords, there's no stairs, and the king is not seated high enough among other things...

I have to agree with the popular vote.
I imagined the Iron throne a bit more like this one than the one on the show (that I believe a bit too small for THE king of Westeros).

I just read an article by GRRM saying that your vision is the definitive Iron Throne in his opinion. How exciting for you! This is simply outstanding.

I love this! The detail and texture, especially in the floor, is astounding. The people look very strange and small compared to everything else, though. I mean the high ceilings look fine like they are, but the floor makes their size look really off.

You can't. He posted it at this resolution but closed it for download. If you want something with that resolution you'd have to buy a print of it or something.

Much closer to how I pictured it! Love the artwork there. Granted, some of those swords to look a bit big or un-swordlike (a 10-foot blade won't do much good) but overall, this piece is fantastic.

alors c' est LE trône de fer, bien plus imposant et hirsute que la version HBO qui maintenant  fait office de tabouret cheapos agrémenté de gratte dos à coté de celui ci où l' on risque sa vie à chaque fois que l' on tente de s' y asseoir ...

En fait, ce n'est pas LE trone, c'est sa version précédente, qui était déjà la version la plus proche à l'époque mais qui avait nombre des défauts par rapport à la version de GRR Martin:

Pas d'escalier, pas assez haut et imposant, des épées bien trop grandes, etc...
Reply
:iconagaillard:
agaillard Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
oui je vois, quelque chose d' encore plus fouilli niveau épées, quelque chose de plus grimpant et où l' on s' y chasse plus profondément, pas toujours facile de taper juste dans les visions d' un auteur, encore plus du premier coup.
