As most of you already know, Game of Thrones is based on a series of novels : A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R. R. Martin. As any other fantasy epic goes, this series too has a lot of details which have been changed and omitted upon adaptation of the books into the TV series. The World of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, Elio M. García Jr. and Linda Antonsson, was a book with amazing artwork depicting some of the most important locations from the A Song of Ice and Fire. Illustrated by artist Ted Nasmith, the book was filled with beautiful artwork. Nasmith published his renditions of the locales from ASOIAF on his website, and they’re amazing. Check them out, below:

Nasmith is known for his paintings based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, who wrote the Lord of the Rings, considered to be one of the greats by George himself. Nasmith drew inspiration from Tolkien for a long time, before deciding to bring Westeros to life. Some of his works were also featured in the 2011 edition of the Song of Ice and Fire calendar.

If you check the images above, you can tell why Nasmith was the choice to bring all these locales and even characters to life. What’s most interesting is how he has portrayed the places which never made it to the TV series. George himself said that he considered Nasmith’s renditions to be “THE definitive depictions of thirteen of the great castles of Westeros.”

What do you think of Ted Nasmith’s work? We think they’re quite accurate and loyal to George’s descriptions, and certainly do them justice. What do you think? Tell us in the comments, down below!
