A Flayed Man Holds No Secrets by kanako91 A Flayed Man Holds No Secrets by kanako91
A Song of Ice and Fire fan art :heart:

«Roose has no feelings, you see. Those leeches that he loves so well sucked all the passions out of him years ago. He does not love, he does not hate, he does not grieve. This is a game to him, mildly diverting. Some men hunt, some hawk, some tumble dice. Roose plays with men. You and me, these Freys, Lord Manderly, his plump new wife, even his bastard, we are but his playthings».
Lady Barbrey Dustin (A Song of Ice and Fire - Book Five: A Dance with Dragons, page 495)



:heart:
I think the passage above sums up why I love Roose Bolton so much. You know, I have a soft spot for cold, cunning and manipulative men :giggle:

Obviously, in the drawing, it's my mental image of him, since GRR Martin gives a precise description only of his pale-pale eyes, his whispering voice and his pink cloak with white fur and drops of blood :XD: Roose Bolton, the only man who can keep being manly and badass even in pink, LOL
So, if you imagine him differently, I'm fine with that, but I'll keep my version, even when the HBO's one is out (I love the actor they cast, though) :flirty:


I hope that also the non-readers of ASoIaF will appreciate this :D

I love your version! This is similar to what I've imagined in my head. But yes, HBO did a fine job casting our beloved Bolton!

That look is making my skin crawl. Someone who doesn't feel anything is far more frightening than someone who hates.

Scary. That cloak reminds me of the stories that said that long ago a Boltons cape would be made of actual skin... and the way he looks about to draw his sword doesn´t make things any better. (In other words awesome work right there XD)

Porcaccia più posti disegni di ASOIAF più mi viene voglia di leggere... ci credi che è da st'estate che vado in giro per librerie dalle mie parti e non trovo manco un libro di Martin? Aaah, le piccole provincie! :XD: Ora che sono tornata a Roma a breve farò una spedizione alle Messaggerie :XD:
Tra l'altro, ho letto che ci sono due edizioni...una best sellers con i libri originali divisi in due tomi, e un'altra dell'Urania con i mattoni originali da 800 pagine...tu che mi consigli?
Lol, scusa se ho divagato dal disegno in sé! Questo personaggio sembra cattivissimissimo...nonostante la mantella rosa!! :rofl:

Oh, bene, sono contenta di influenzare qualcuno con questi disegni! XD Sennò è triste che nessuno si incuriosisca :no:
Io ho comprato quella della Mondadori in due tomi (non prendere la versione tre volumi in uno, è enorme e hanno fatto uno schifo con l'impaginazione, che se la tengano), però non sapevo ci fosse quella di Urania - che però mi pare sia versione "da edicola". Quindi non so XD La versione best sellers è okay, a meno che non la porti al mare XD Mi si è sfaldato il volume che ho letto in vacanza l'anno scorso, per dirti XD
LOL, no problem XD Il mantello rosa è stilosissimo :nod:

Sì sì! XD E' l'hobby di famiglia scorticare i nemici e - pare - conservarne le pelli in una stanza apposita :XD:
Ahaha! Il mantello colpisce ancora! XD Usano anche la ceralacca rosa, sai? Ma nessuno osa aver nulla da ridere sulla scelta del colore, nel loro mondo :giggle:
Sono contenta risulti inquietante! :love:

uuuh, lo vorrei prendere anche io in inglese (anche se il 25 ottobre esce la prima parte in italiano, argh...), anche se temo di non apprezzarlo in pieno visto che la mia conoscenza della suddetta lingua non è poi un granchè... ._. Però non potrò resistere, terminata la mia rilettura, già lo so!XD
E quali altri personaggi ti piacciono?*-* me curiosa!

Quali altri personaggi mi piacciono, bella domanda XD Per ora mi vengono in mente, in ordine sparso: Jaime, Brienne, Euron Greyjoy, Ditocorto, Sansa, Sandor, Bronn quando c'era XD, Cersei perchè è pazza, Tyrion, Oberyn Martell e... uhm, al momento non me ne vengono in mente altri XD
Te? *w*

Roose will forever have hair like this in my mind. Hope he gets a pretty wig in the show! Then he'll look like Septimus :heart:

That cloak looks so soft... and he's so beautiful. Really hope he isn't dead by Mance or by Ramsay...


They... they call him ROSA in the Italian translation? :D
