Two episodes left to the end of Game of Thrones and I was looking back a bit and I thought of Shireen Baratheon, today.
Anyway, if you havent seen Season 5 of the show, you might wanna skip this post entirely cuz ... yeah, it's about what happened to her :3.
Right, so those of you who don't care about spoilers/has seen the show, probably knows what happened to her and I think it's one of the most terriblest awfulest things on TV... It certainly is one of the thing that stayed with me from the show, because she was such a sweet and harmless girl and her arc showed the horrible things that people would do in the name of 'devotion' and 'glory'.
Drew this with the mechanical pencil, 2B lead.
Again, please feel free to skip this post, but here is my sketch of Shireen Barathen as she was burnt alive:
Her expression changed as I drew her cuz as usual I didn't know she was going to come out in the beginning, but at first she was anguished, I think, and later when I was approaching the finish, she went a little vacant in her face, as if trying to forgive her parents who did this to her...
... man, I can be pretty dark sometimes, hey? Hahahah, sorry if you're not expecting a dark spider :)
Step by Step
Step 1: Eyes
Step 2: Face
Step 3: Hair - her expression changes here
Step 4: Clasped hands
Step 5: Skin melting
Step 6: Burning alive
Her sacrifice granted passage for her father's army to be able to push forward where they had been blocked by an icy passage previously. I don't think it was worth the price.
Two more episodes to the end of this epic journey~ It has been years in the making and we're finally at the end! I do think GoT was way darker and more horrible in the beginning, but I aint complaining about what it is right now, neither. Sometimes, I'm way over shock jock schlock~
Okei, that's it for now :) See you all next time, friends o/

I might try to do something further with this art class initiative in the future, but I need to pace myself as I've got this habit of taking too much on :3
