The septons preach about the seven hells. What do they know? Only a man who’s been burned knows what hell is truly like.

I love the way you drew his face, angular and longer than I'd imagined before but dAMN if it isn't what I will be picturing from now on!

Whoaaaaa, what a compliment!!! Hahaha, I'm so sorry, yes, you definitely have to separate the show and the books, as the show has become some insane fan fiction at this point! :D  So glad you like the work, and I hope you've been enjoying the books!

Yep, he's dressed warm, no dog helmet, pure determination and sense of purpose on his hard, austere face. This is Sandor Clegane who fights for love, not hate. Right?Woohooooo!  Perfection!

Faved it on tumblr, faved it on here, it deserves all the favveees! :love: You just can feel the movement in this, how he strides forward with heavy steps and how the wind moves the fur on his cape and his hair, aaah! The intense gaze just kills me. And so does the light and dramatic color palette.

huhuhuhuhu, thank youuuuuuu!

YES, I'm glad you feel it....I was thinking so much about the "Sandor stride", because you do NOT want to be in his way when he gets his momentum going. Eeeeep. And yes, I was really wanting to give him those grey eyes of his, but I haven't decided if this is KL era or post QI era, because....I wanted his anger or rage to be lessened here, it's more just about duty; he's awake, alive, and not hungover, but it's not about bloodlust. 

I have a lot of feelings about him again, I apologize XD

Don't apologize, I love to hear your thoughts about Sandor, especially in connection to your art! I myself, see this pic as a moment after the Quiet Isle, since as you wanted to portray, his anger is lessened. Sure, he looks intimidating but it's not the blind rage and bloodlust. It also looks like you drew little flickers of fire, and I imagine him after QI to still fear fire to some extent but be able to handle that fear much better. So his duty (to protect Sansa QUEEN OF THE NOOORTH), overcomes his fears; fuels him even.
So eh, that's my two cents ahhaha 8,D Because I got a lot feels to, and your art just stabs my heart in the best ways *-*

Yeah, I'm not the most knowledgable person when it comes to asoiaf/got (I'll leave that up to some people on tumblr I know), but I like to think I have an intuition about internalized characters like Sandor, and use what I "think" I know, incorporating that into my work. You hit the head of all the nails, that's exactly what I wanted. This isn't Blackwater, there's a different feel about the eyes and there's not really a rage, but indomitable focus. Plus he's in some northern furs....Perhaps a certain queen in the North fashioned it for him XD XB I'm so glad I'm the good type of heart stab!

Amazing! The way you portray the burnt portion of Sandor's face gives off a more morbid and ugly feeling.

Thank you! I love how it's described in the books, sometimes it sounds a little too messy and macabre (like black, oozing pits though I feel like sometimes Sansa embellished the scars), but I did want it to have intensity and rawness.

You know, after the 7th episode I was thinking about the SanSan ship. Do you think it will liven up?

kallielef Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Professional General Artist
You know, it's really hard to tell with D&D? Sansa feels much more a woman in the series now, but I'm not sure if they're intuitionally making her look and act more mature so that they can pair her with someone older....I think it's highly unlikely though. I'd definitely be surprised if there was any love interest between the two, but perhaps there's a mutual respect and appreciation if he becomes her sworn shield? 

Yeah, I really don't know what to think XD

Personally, I don't believe SanSan will ever happen in canon. I don't know who would I like to see by her side. I'm on the Tyrion ship, I hope when he arrives from Essos, with or without Dany, he will stand for her. I mean, he's a nice man. His only fault is that he is a drawf and a Lannister. Neither he chose. But with this forced Bolton-marriage, bleh. I feel that she won't give Tyrion a chance, even though Tyrion was a gentleman and Ramsay was not. I think he would be fine with his wife cheating on him, as long as it fits their political ambitions. I hope Sansa won't hurt him much more.

That sworn shield idea I like, just like the SanSan artworks. :)

So, so awesome to see you draw him again. Great work. He's frighteningly beautiful.

Ah thanks Boxjelly1 !! I am! I'm actually really enjoying the season so far! And yes, when I saw what I suspected was Elder Brother and then "the limp", I shook my husband and yelled at the tv. Thanks, it's good to draw him again, and my style has changed a bit, so I was curious to see how he would flesh out. Frighteningly beautiful is definitely something I was going for ! :D

That's what I was thinking too. You've always been stylized, but your recent pieces have a very cool edge to them. Your talent has skyrocketed, I'm very impressed. And thrilled to see Sandor included under the new skill.

"I always had this love for the Black-White-Red colour mix and the hound is an amazing character, so obviously I am a lil bit in love with this one <3 if I one day should have a castle, I want this to hang over my throne xD #Masterpiece #HideYerChickens!
P.s. Imagine how incredibly awesome badass this Sandor whould look like with a beard!"

And pps. because of reasons #ripCleganeBowl....the Hype was real!!!....for a week...  Frozen - Elsa Crying Icon

And for traditional reasons Deadpool icon

Yeah, my friend knew what she was doing with those colors before I started this....They suit a battle born man well! I'm actually really relieved about no CleganeBowl; I just think Sandor has a new path to take now, and doesn't need to go back and avenge himself...Possibly Sansa, but that's why I think he'll be making his way further North. 

I'm so glad you like it John :D

Can't we just agree that Sandor fight the Mountain and than ride north to kill Ramsey and the Nights King and got a happy-end - riding into the sunset with sansa? ;D
