The Other by dejan-delic The Other by dejan-delic
“But that was wrong. They weren’t alone at all.
The lower branches of the great green sentinel shed their burden of snow with a soft wet
plop. Grenn spun, thrusting out his torch. “Who goes there?” A horse’s head emerged
from the darkness. Sam felt a moment’s relief, until he saw the horse. Hoarfrost covered
it like a sheen of frozen sweat, and a nest of stiff black entrails dragged from its open
belly. On its back was a rider pale as ice. Sam made a whimpery sound deep in his
throat. He was so scared he might have pissed himself all over again, but the cold was in
him, a cold so savage that his bladder felt frozen solid. The Other slid gracefully from the
saddle to stand upon the snow. Sword-slim it was, and milky white. Its armor rippled
and shifted as it moved, and its feet did not break the crust of the new-fallen snow.” ASOS

You definitely have captured the mood of the scene, with Sam and Grenn witnessing the terrifiying creature of Winter.  

By the way, you sure have a unique style. :)

I love that part of the book. 
Especially because reading "and its feet did not break the crust of the new-fallen snow" it I remembered that part in Lord of the Rings and thought automatically: "Hey, but that's... - Legolas!" ! and for me the spookyness of the scene turned into ridicule...
I know I'measy to amuse, but I like your drawing it is... elvish :)

OMGOMGOMG, this is amazing! So much more like how I pictured the Other from the books, they've taken a lot of artistic freedom in the series. I. Love. It. :happybounce: How I missed this when you're in my watch, I haven't the faintest. If you made a comic version of this it would be so much more awesome than the one they currently have. ^_^ PLease don't stop drawing, I think I'd get withdrawal hehe.

WOO GORE!!  The entrails make the piece, I think.  And of course, I love how clean the color blocks are and the beautiful line weights.
