The cover for my Game of Thrones Western fanfic called, as you might have guessed, Westeros Gone West!!The fanfic itself is only currently available in Russian, but I plan on translating it in the near future. Here you see the main character, Stoneheart Cat, who seeks vengeance on a certain bandit for the death of her husband. Upon his death, she is forced to take his revolver, saddle a horse and take matters into her own hands. It’s an action filled story with tavern-shootings, train chases, gang conflicts, indians, comedy and romance. I was going for a classical Marvel comic book look for this one. Drawn with pencil, inked with felt-tip pens and colored with water colors.
Based on a Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin
What makes Lake Kaindy truly remarkable is that it contains an underwater forest. Visible on the lakes surface are the tall, dried-out tops of submerged Spruce trees that rise above the water’s surface like the masts of sunken ships. They are the only sign of the amazing frozen forest below the water’s surface.
The water is so cold (even in summer the temperature does not exceed 6 degrees) that the pine needles remain on the trees, even after a hundred years of being submerged. During the winter, the lake freezes and becomes a popular spot for ice diving.
The lake is 400 meters long and is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains, about 129 km from the city of Almaty. The lake was created after an earthquake in 1911 triggered a large landslide blocking the gorge and forming a natural dam.
