marriage of dragon and sun by kaleadora marriage of dragon and sun by kaleadora
I know, I know, all I've been doing lately is fanart...but I just can't help myself. This one isn't a spoiler, either - it happens chronologically before the opening of the first book of the series.

So here we have Rhaegar Targaryen, prince of Westeros, marrying Elia Martell of Dorne. Things may have ended badly for them, but who says they didn't start out happy? Her maiden cloak - which would have shown the speared sun of the Martells in orange, red, and yellow - has been removed and Rhaegar is cloaking her with the colors of his House, taking her into his protection. The three-headed dragon of the Targaryens is picked out in rubies on the marriage cloak.

I like the High Septon (aka Impressive Clergyman) in the background. :)

Rhaegar Targaryen, Elia Martell Targaryen, the series A Song of Ice and Fire, and all such affiliated stuff (such as septons) belong to George R.R. Martin, the author.

I like this pairing more than I like Rhaegar x Lyanna. Nobody had to die for Elia and Rhaegar to get together.

Gah, I love these characters! Their story just ends so badly on all parts =( I love the use of light in this picture, especially the folds on Elia's cloak, and I like the way Impressive Clergyman blends into the background =)

Really like it!
And I think it's a great choice that you draw Rhaegar with bright eyebrows. Often the Targaryens are shown with dark eyebrows (which kind of looks better I think) but it seems more "realistic" for them to have bright eyebrows, just like most people with very fair blond hair (e.g. like athlete Carolina Klüft from Sweden).

I like the Targs with white eyebrows! It's more distinctive. Though I don't at all mind that they went with a darker shade for Dany and Viserys's brows in the show.

WOW WHAT WHY ARE THERE NO COMMENTS? The Targaryen cloak is gorgeous, I love the little rubies poking up ever so slightly. I gotta say, the High Septon is my favorite XD Oh aaww I love his hands, he looks like he is holding that cloak so delicately.
