Game of Thrones Feudal Japan: Two Extra Prints, plus ordering info

Warning: Season 3 Spoiler and Season 4 Trailer Scene Below.

As requested, I drew two more scenes from the A Song of Ice and Fire universe, bringing the total (and final) number of the set to eight woodblock prints.

In addition to these two new prints, I am happy to announce that all of the prints will be available for ordering on the site redbubble.comCheck out my store here!

Also, check out the reddit discussion for these pieces here.
Here's a link to the book-related discussion.
This is a link to the original imgur album where it all began. I updated it with the latest prints.

Below are the two extra images. If you care about season 3 spoilers/the season 4 trailer, please take this chance to close this window and slowly back away from your computer/internet device.

Everybody else, please enjoy! Thank you again for your support last week!

Northerners gather for a traditional courtly wedding banquet as sellswords, posing as musicians, put down their instruments and prepare weapons. Outside, the bridge of the Twins is visible, inspired by the very famous Bridge of Awate print by ukiyo-e master Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858).

Oberyn Martell wields a naginata against Gregor Clegane, who fights with a no-dachi (greatsword) and a tessen (iron war fan). The three kanji on Clegane's armor each translate to the word "dog", in accordance with his family crest. I considered giving Martell a yari (single-pointed spear) but I liked how the naginata drew parallels to the visually similar duel between Ushiwaka and the warrior-monk Benkei in the Heike Monogatari.
