Stark Children by cylindric Stark Children by cylindric
Separate pictures can be found on my tumblr : [link]

I've been wanting to draw so ASOIAF/ Game of Thrones stuff since quite a while, so here we are : coloured sketches of the Stark children, 5 +1 little bastard.
It doesn't match their appareances in the TV Show, and doesn't totally fit the book description neither... I guess this is a mix between the mental image I had while reading the book and the things I like in the show's visual. They all look a little older than what I would have wanted, but whatever...
I really love the Starks

From left to right and top to bottom (more or less by order of age ):
Rickon (with Shaggydog), Bran, Arya (with Needle), Sansa, Robb and Jon Snow

I though Bran and Arya both had brown hair in the books? In the show all but Sansa has brown hair but in the books I know Robb has red hair, I think Rickon does too, but if I remember correctly (which I might not, I could easily be wrong) both Arya and Bran had brown hair. I really like this btw, Robb and Jon.

Yes you're right, in the books Bran and Arya are said to have their father's dark hair and olive skin... That's why I'm saying that what I drew is not accurate at all, regarding both the books and the show ; it's more like a personal image I have of them, and how I wanted to draw them. I mixed several traits from the books, the TV adaptation, and some headcanons of mine !
Thank you for pointing it out though, I'll remember about it next time ;)

Totally understandably, for example whenever I imagined Lem I imagined him bald enough though it's said in the book he has hair, I also don't bother imagining the Meerenese with their weird hair. I also imagine almost everyone as their show counterpart even though a number of character (Tyrion for example) don't look like they do in the book because that's how I know them.

It's always quite hard not to imagine characters as their movie or show counterparts whenever there's an adaptation... it's true that some of the actors of the cast do not have the physical traits or features described in the books, but they almost all manage to get the identities of the characters right so it still works great. The fabulous thing with that kind of literary series is that we're totally free to imagine whatever we like, wether it's related to the adaptation or not :)

Yeah that's like with Rose Leslie, aside from the red hair she doesn't really look like how she's described at all but she plays the character so perfectly that it doesn't matter.

Couldn't agree more :)

Bran has red hair, as does Rickon, Robb, and Sansa. Arya is the only one with brown hair.

I see, my mistake.
