Artist recaps major Game of Thrones deaths in fun video

Ned Stark on Game of ThronesThere has been no shortage of deaths over the past six seasons of Game of Thrones. Some are shocking (Catelyn, Robb), some are tragic (Shireen, Hodor), and some are downright satisfying (Joffrey, Ramsay). The show has been even more bloodthirsty than the books as far as killing major characters is concerned – so much so that “valar morghulis” should be the official motto.

While the most iconic deaths have been officially memorialized in the “Beautiful Death” series, fan artists have their own unique interpretations. Artist Hannes Sommer (HansoArt) posted a video yesterday featuring his take on 35 of the major character deaths in Game of Thrones to date. Featuring hand drawn images and some fun interaction, Sommer states in the description that the project took around 150 hours to complete. That’s dedication!

Be sure to check out the rest of Sommer’s art on Instagram and Facebook.

    1. That was inventive. My favorites include the Hound, the High Sparrow (and others), and Ramsey Bolton.

    2. Wow that was so epic, what a amazing artist. I loved his response to Shireen, totally agree. So many heartbreaking deaths, to choose the worst to be honest but Shireen is definitely up there.

    3. Fine drawings and creative solutions to depict death! My favourite are the two which made me laugh: Oberyn splashed with the squashed tomato juice and Ramsay’s head covered by the dog food with the adorable doggy picture. I also sometimes buy cat food from Billa 🙂

    4. Decent drawings, very creative use of mixed media. 🙂

      Gotta say though, he seems to be a bit of a Bookwanker given the reactions to Dorne, Stannis, and Jons ressurection were of the classic “BUT I WANTED IT TO BE DIFFERENT” category. :p

    5. I always take my hat off to traditional artists. Especially since I’m a designer/animator who does everything digitally. What makes this one so great is how he does everything in one take. There aren’t any re-dos unless he had a few back up sketchbooks for a retake 🙂

    6. Queenofthrones: bit of a Bookwanker

      “Bookwanker”, eh? If so, he would have had a wolf drag Catelyn’s picture out of frame… 🙂

      I wholeheartedly enjoy the creativity within this community.

    8. I paint and draw– these are great caricatures. It would have hurt to see them destroyed if it weren’t so clever and funny.
