Blood Of My Blood by ArtDoge Blood Of My Blood by ArtDoge
"“What do you pray for, Ser Jorah?” she asked him.

“Home,” he said. His voice was thick with longing.

“I pray for home, too,” she told him, believing it."


My fav character from Song of Ice and Fire. Ser Jorah Mormont of Bear Island. Such a tragic past, poor guy... He's the one character I can relate to the most :( (besides being able to grow a nice beard)

I loosely based the face off Iain Glen, such a potent yet sad face for a sad character...

Photoshop CS + SAI

Бедолага Джорах, он её так любит. Почему убрали из фильма сцену на корабле?!((( мне кажется Даарио больно пафосный, а вот Джорах Дени очень даже подходит)) староват правда. Я всё-таки надеюсь, что у них всё получится в конечном итоге

The Starks and the Lannisters and all the rest can fight and kill each over the Iron Throne, but Jorah is the king of the Friendzone. I love these two so much, it's like, 'Dany, please give him a chance and stop thinking about Daario and his fucking blue eyes' The kissing scene in whichever book it was, when they were in the cabin in the Balerion or whatever it was called, I hope to the Old Gods that they keep that it the series. They would, right? I mean it was quite a big step for them.

Wonderful. The glove details are simply amazing.

I started noticing Jorah more after the series came out, because the actor is.....wow..... well, one wouldn't expect they had chosen such a perfect guy for a character who is described in "not much handsome" terms in the books.

Such a wonderful depiction of the screen version of Jorah Mormont's character.

I especially find the textured detailing of both his leather gloved hand and the beaten up old sword he holds to be beautifully done. :D

Poor Jorah... it truly is absolute misery to bearer the of unrequited love. Sure hope things get better for the big lug in the next two books.

Oh,no... what does THAT mean???

You mean you think things will only get worse for his character in TWoW?

I have only read ADwD up until Tyrion's POV talking about river turtles... but I have already read some spoilers about Jorah later being tattooed on the face and sold into slavery for the fighting pits.

Poor guy... that sounds pretty much to me like he finally hit rock bottom at that point. :(

He captured some hunters and sold them into slavery, so he deserved to be banished, but he is defiantly a good character o3o I love how loyal he is to Dany. great picture by the way!

His first wife had 3 miscarriages and died on the 3rd. He married again and the woman turned out to be a gold digger, he went broke trying to please his new love, and resorted to selling slaves only for love. Being exiled for the woman you loved so much, only to have her leave you for another man. Yes selling slaves was a bad thing, but he didn't deserve to be exiled into a shit storm. Even after Clash of Kings things just gets worse and worse for him. Sorry I just have to back up my fav character on this one, I with many other readers connected with this character the most.
