It’s that time of year again: when I redraw the young, soon-to-be-king/usurper Robert Baratheon: the first of his name, King of the Andals and of the Rhoynar and of the First Men, yadda yadda yadda.
Please forgive the silly tournament shield. It was a contrived reason to show the Baratheon coat of arms and motto. Anyways, Robert doesn’t look to be heading into battle any time soon.
Every time I draw Robert, or more specifically his armor, I am left thinking about how I could improve, embellish or refine the way his character is depicted. Given a dozen more iterations, I might eventually get it. Until then, it’s a fun measure of how far I’ve come technically - as well as how much room I have for improvement.
I am already looking forward to my 2016 drawing of Robert.
