Featured Artist - Adam Holmes - Eddard Stark Portrait

Before being Killed off, Eddard Stark was my favourite character. He was strong, he was a leader, he was loyal and he was a badass! I chose Ned not only for these reasons but also because I felt his character could push my artistic capabilities.

I chose this pose for Ned as I feel it is one of the most important and influential scenes he was involved in, I know many will disagree but oh well! It helped portray Ned’s strength and leadership; as well as his compassion and desire to do what is necessary, no matter the cost.

I wanted to use a more traditional and realistic style whilst keeping the colour palette limited, so I chose black and white for the portrait whilst using 2 colours in the background. I used Adobe Photoshop CS6 and was the first drawing I did using my Wacom Intuous5… which although I had to go hungry for a few days to purchase it, was totally worth it!
