Ned, please, make it stop hurting... by hallmarccus Ned, please, make it stop hurting... by hallmarccus

"It hurts so much, she thought. Our children, Ned, all our sweet babes. Rickon, Bran, Arya, Sansa, Robb . . . Robb . . . please, Ned, please, make it stop, make it stop hurting . . . ‘‘Mad,’’ someone said, ‘‘she’s lost her wits,’’ and someone else said, ‘‘Make an end,’’ and a hand grabbed her scalp just as she’d done with Jinglebell, and she thought, No, don’t, don’t cut my hair, Ned loves my hair. Then the steel was at her throat, and its bite was red and cold."


Hey guys, whats up?! This piece, actualy is a sketch that I made in my job (don't let my boss know that XD) So it's not as good as the others. The idea came, when I suddently remembered the quote of Catelyn Tully about her hair, before his death in the f***king Red Wedding. 

I don't like to use references from the tv show actors/actress, but in this case I have to. The first time I saw Michelle Fairley as Catelyn, I absolutely hated, it was completely different from the Cat of my mind, and I keep that opinion for a long time. But then "Rains of Castemere" aired, and the way that Michelle played her role, was just unspeakable. This woman should win a billion of prizes for that performance. So, for Ned's face, as you may notice, I use a little bit of reference from Sean Bean, 'cause, I just can't imagine a Ned, without Sean Bean's face :)

P.S. I really have to stop drawing couples, this start to become too cute for me :D

Such an emotional artwork. Their expressions look so peaceful and a bit sad. If it weren't for the blood...

AH FEELS! You are honestly making me well up a little bit, I've always loved the idea of Ned thinking about Catelyn when he died and Catelyn doing the same with Ned. This picture is just so beautiful. sad eyes *Sniff*

Very nice drawing... and you picked one of my favourite quotes. Every time I read that, I get sad, even after such a long time.

Thanks, I feel the same way. This is a very deeply emocional quote on the books for me, all the pain in Cat's word, the mothers love, just broke me down everytime I read it, aswell.
