Another thing I am late to comment on, but I feel like I should mention, I greatly enjoy these portraits! It's amazing how even after so many of them, you still manage to make them all look as unique as the characters themselves are. On the topic of unique looks, I should single out Matthias, who is instantly one of my favourites out of every single portait you have ever done for any story. The hairstyle reminds me of Halfdan from Vikings, who was, coincidentally, also one of my favourites from that show ^^ Also, Bittersteel is great, because he is Bittersteel and so is your depiction of him.
Wow, it's fantastic to see your work again after all this time, and these portraits are amazing. I love referring to your old pieces (which I am constantly looking back at with this story) and just seeing how far you've come since then. That also being said, there's a lot of features here which are marginally different to the originals, some I didn't expect, but all of these changes I love.
Lenlie looks a little healthier since her arrival at the Vale, and certainly looks the part that I imagined her in my head! Skjorn on the other hand... has hair! I think the TV show Thenn mentality kicked in for me, along with your early depiction of both Krygorn and Skjorn, that Thenns were all bald. Of course in the books they aren't, and in this story there are plenty who aren't, and in this turn of events it's nice to see Skjorn growing out some hair Both Gorgar and Barryn have captured that image I had in my head, and then there is Armun... I don't know if this is just coincidence, but I've been watching a lot of the Last Kingdom lately, and man the resemblance Armun has to Haestan is... uncanny. I definitely know now which actor I'd get to play Armun in live action if that were ever a possibility XD. I really love these, and I commend your work, amazing as always!
