Lady Catelyn Stark by MinorTechnicality Lady Catelyn Stark by MinorTechnicality
Edit: The BG on this is terrible, but I don't have the will to fix it. Sorry. It would've been better but it had to be turned in by a certain time and I nearly missed the deadline.

Holy, I'm tired, I'll clean this thing up later.

Cate Stark from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.
For 's Redcandle17's Cate Stark contest.

She may be wearing the furs of a Stark, but deep down beneath that, she's still a Tully.

Ideas/references from old sketchdumps in my gallery, a compilation of 'em is here: [link]

I was going to draw her sitting with five wolves around her like that one picture, but I figured the fur would take too long to draw and I wouldn't get this in. Turns out, the fur on the cloak was fun to draw. Bummer. Oh well, horses are easier for me.

I think this is the hardest I've ever worked on anything. Yeesh. Yay, I managed to do the under-the-chin shadow and cheek shadows right for once. Sorry for the shoddy trees! I might not be able to post any later so I wanted to get this in. It feels like I'm the only one that pictured her with her hair up. I've never seen any other artwork with it like that.

WIPs: 1 [link] - 2 [link] - 3 [link]

And now, I'm off to collapse.

Edit2: Yay, it won. :)
