The Iron throne by MarcSimonetti The Iron throne by MarcSimonetti
This is the Work in Progress picture of the "Iron throne" made for the upcoming concordance "The World of Ice and Fire" by Grr Martin, for Random House.
All I can say is that the book will be awesome.

PS: Please note that it isn't the final one, and that I can't sell prints of it.

PS: Thanks so much for the DD!

The Iron throne by *MarcSimonetti

"A dozen different artists have done versions of the Iron Throne over the years. Some have been very striking, some less so, but none of them have ever been quite RIGHT," says Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin himself.

That is quite an intimidating throne. I like how it's rather monochromatic.

Yes! This is much closer to what I had in my minds eye while reading the books. A truly terrible throne. A monstrosity that emphasizes the weight of war.

I definitely look forward to seeing this in its final version in the World of Ice and Fire!

(And I can definitely see how someone could cut themselves on this throne. That always seemed kind of unlikely for the Show version :XD: )
