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!

Game of Thrones as Feudal Japan

I thought it would be interesting to draw a retelling of the ASOIAF universe as if it took place in feudal-era Japan. These drawings are inspired by the Ukiyo-e style (traditional woodblock printing).

Edit: You can join the reddit discussion here.

Here is the book-specific discussion (as opposed to the TV show):

Here is a link to the original imgur album I posted.

Edit 2: Thank you for your kind words everyone! I will let you know once I have the printing service set up. I may add a couple more pictures as a bonus.

This is the iconic duel between Robert Baratheon and Rhaegar Targaryen that preceded the series by seventeen years. Instead of a war hammer, Robert wields a Kanabō, a club-like samurai bludgeoning weapon. His antlered helmet is inspired by the famous helmet of the warlord Honda Tadakatsu.

Catelyn Stark, her uncle Brynden Tully, and a dispatch of the Knights of the Vale journey to the Eyrie while transporting their captive, Tyrion Lannister. Tyrion is dressed in the robes of a nobleman.
