Oberyn Martell by guad Oberyn Martell by guad
A song of Ice and Fire by GRR Martin Artwork

Prince Oberyn Martell, also called the Red Viper. Very awesome guy.

I am not too happy with that pic. But I don't know how to improve it. At some point during painting his expression reminded me of Lollys. LOLLYS! OMG!!! Needless to say that I nearly despaired.

Also his shield looks as if made of plastic. Anyone knows how to make metallic effects?

At least his hand looks moderately ok. LOL

The thing in the back is supposed to be a background. *no comment*. Just a random castle in Dorne.

Anyway, that's the best I can do, and it doesn't do him justice. :/

I like the pose and how you did his face. I think that is a really good expression.

Probably his neck should be a little thinner? Like almos just half of what it is right now? :D
I thing that would improve the pic a lot.

The hand is actually pretty nice and as far as the background goes it certainly represents Dorne: wasteland, kind of empty, sand, and.... ahmmmm... sand? :D

Ooh nice! I like the way you've got him holding the spear, almost like he's pointing it at the viewer. One suggestion, though: he should have longer hair, probably about shoulder-length.

BTW, we're going to be having a fic/art exchange on dmo. If you'd like to participate, it would be awesome!

Thank you! :)
You're right about the hair, but that pic had me frustrated, I couldn't do more on it lol

I'll try to participate. (as long as nobody wants backgrounds or lots of people together from me :D )
