Game of Thrones: Mixed Media Fan Art

With season 7 of GOT here, I wanted to temporarily fill up an empty spot above my TV with some of the key players from the season.

A very simple DIY to create. You can choose your favorite characters and customize as you please.

You will need:

  1. Silhouettes of your characters from google images (simply print on regular A4 sheets)
  2. White Canvas
  3. Pencil / Scissors / Elmer’s Glue / Thick Brush
  4. Thin / Thick Black Sharpie
  5. Color pencils – Red, yellow, orange, black, grey
  6. Champagne gold metallic acrylic paint

What you do:

  1. Arrange your silhouettes the way you want them to look on your canvas. IMG_2655
  2. Add a light coat of the acrylic paint on the canvas and let dry.
  3. Use a pencil to draw an outline of a wolf and color it grey with a bit of black. I did at the top left corner of the canvas.IMG_2656
  4. Based on your silhouette arrangement, pen the following sentences in using the same font as observed on the show’s posters and art (you can copy the font from google images). I went with …
    • King of the North
    • Kingslayer
    • Queen of the Dragons
    • Valar Morghulis
    • I drink and I know thingsIMG_2654
  5. I drew an open starburst shape and colored it with the red, orange and yellow pencils. I will be sticking the silhouette of Daenerys over it. I added a dragon over her shoulder with red flames coming out of his mouth.                                                                                                        IMG_2697
  6. I stuck all the silhouettes on using glue. Make sure you evenly brush the silhouette to remove any air bubbles. Let everything dry. IMG_2698

I added some extra detailing around Sansa… a bird, leaves and a few dots here and there (don’t know why lol). And there you have it… Your custom made fan art 😀
