This is absolutely amazing and one of my favourite pieces of ASOIAF art, ever, for sure.

Reading the Princess and the Queen is so, so much easier with this picture. It really helps you keep the characters distinct in your mind. I love your interpretations of character appearances.

Are you planning to do one for the "prequel" The Rogue Prince? A lot of the same characters, although younger. It would be so helpful if you would!

Thank you! :) Perhaps one day, when i get the chance to read the Rogue Prince and have some spare time, i'll make it happen :))

I've read the "Rogue Prince," it's good, but some things in the narrative didn't make any sense, I assume George R.R. Martin meant it to be that way.

Yes, he's admitted to involve 'unreliable' narrators in his stories (such as Sansa in ASOIAF), so it could be deliberate. Could be a mistake too :D

I just read it, it's only like thirty pages so if you get it from your library (like I did) then there's no monetary commitment and you can get through it in no time. Also just btw Joffrey Velaryon, Lucerys Velaryon, Jacaerys Velaryon all had brow hair and eyes, they don't explain their supposed lineage very well in the princess and the queen (I was confused by it when it's brought up once in the book) but it's made pretty clear in the rogue prince that they are in fact bastards fathered by Harwin Strong and don't resemble their mother much at all favoring their father's more common appearance.

 Please allow me to offer my compliments once again upon this very excellent image Ms. Enife - it's impressive, having read The Rogue Prince, to look upon this work and realise how accurate your guesswork was! (for very few of these depictions seem to require any major alteration, with the exception of Princes Jacerys, Lucerys and Joffrey of Dragonstone).

 Might I ask if you have been commissioned to depict those characters from 'The Rogue Prince' that belong in this 'Family Line-Up' as yet? (such as HG King Viserys, Laena Velaryon … and Mushroom!).
