Brace Yourself, Fan Art is Coming

This summer I finally started watching the show that has made the world cry a river of tears - Game of Thrones.  After watching all three seasons and reading some of the first book, I have to say I don't know what the big deal is.  Haha just kidding, it's AWESOME.  And you can't call yourself a true fan of a show until you've drawn a portrait of one of the characters, right?  Maybe it's a little much, but I love drawing interesting faces, and Arya Stark's face is pretty interesting.  She's also my favorite character, so I just had to.

This is what I've done so far, I'm hoping to finish it by the end of this week.  Upon looking for pictures online to reference, I quickly realized that the entire world has already joined the Game of Thrones Fan Art bandwagon.  While some of it was your typical "this has gone too far" fan art, a lot of it was pretty awesome.  For my fellow Game of Throners, I hope this bit of artwork can hold you guys over until Season 4:
