GoT VFX

The world of Westeros in Game of Thrones is a stunning place. Even though they film the television series in plenty of stunning locations, visual effects are necessary to populate the army and to add the sweeping backgrounds. Rodeo FX won an Emmy for Outstanding Special and Visual Effects work done on season four of the series, and they put together a reel showing off their skills. It’s absolutely amazing to see how much of the show is digital.

Watch the reel after the break.

This one will stun fans of Game of Thrones and boardgamers alike. It’s a 3′ by 5′ custom game board built by Aaron Jenkins. This is 2.5 times larger than the standard board and it features an amazing level of custom work. He’s added 3D mountains and castles rising from the board, custom-painted special miniatures he purchased separately, and even his own sculpted ships.

got video game

If you’re caught up on Game Of Thrones or you don’t mind spoilers, this Game Of Thrones mash up by Ozzy Man with the sound replaced by old school video game sounds is two minutes of mindless fun.

I think we can all use a little mindless fun.

Oh, I should likely mention it’s a bit NSFW due to some partial nudity. I mean, we are talking Game Of Thrones here.

Check it out after the break.

As if there aren’t enough people who have died throughout the series, George R.R. Martin bloodlust appears to be reaching a point where there is little need for restraint. According to BuzzFeed, while speaking at an event at the Freemason’s Hall in London, Martin said:

The way my books are structured, everyone was together, then they all went their separate ways and the story deltas out like that, and now it’s getting to the point where the story is beginning to delta back in, and the viewpoint characters are occasionally meeting up with each other now and being in the same point at the same time, which gives me a lot more flexibility for killing people.”

Oh, that’s just fantastic. Why do I get the feeling that the Red Wedding may end up looking like a lovely afternoon tea party once this is all over?

These images are the work of artist Jonathan Cantero who has given Game of Thrones a whole new look. Not only has he designed images with the characters, capturing the essence of each house, but he has also reimagined the house sigils as little characters. That Targaryen dragon is just adorable.

GoT subway map

It takes forever for the characters of Game of Thrones to get from point A to point B because horses and wagons can only go so fast. What if there was a public transit system? I bet it would be filled with more bizarre passengers than New York’s subway cars.

Michael Tyznik imagined a rail line for Westeros and has released a print so you can learn exactly which trains to take from the Eyrie to Winterfell.

The ladies of Westeros aren’t the kind of people you want to make angry. Even Sansa Stark, who used to be trusting and naive, has a hard edge now. They could all cut you down, and artist Leann Hill has created stunning illustrations of them from Ellaria Sand to Ygritte to Daenerys Targaryen. I’d love to cover my wall with this Game of Thrones art.

See some individual character illustrations after the break.

myrcella

Game of Thrones has recast actors more than once, and Princess Myrcella Baratheon is getting a new look next season. We’ll be seeing the princess again in Dorne, but she’ll be played by Nell Tiger Free instead of Aimee Richardson. However, Richardson reacted to the switch in the classiest and funniest way possible by posting a “Princess for Hire” Vine video. She rocks.

Watch the video after the break…

He’s dashing, he’s charming, he’s funny, he’s sexy and he’s a Sailor Scout.

Well, sorta. At the very least he is someone who’s totally take a picture with someone’s Moon Stick at SDCC.
