The Grumpkin and the Craven - 2 of 2 by saki-guzman The Grumpkin and the Craven - 2 of 2 by saki-guzman
One thing I noticed in some of the Sansa illustrations I've seen is that she's made to look much older than Arya, when she's only ahead by 2 years. They're still considered little girls (by modern standards) at the start of the series, as shown here. My source of inspiration for this is Judy Blume's 'The Pain and the Great One', a really cute children's picture book I haveÖ I don't see Sansa and Arya's relationship as antagonistic (at least, prior to the Joffrey incident) as the siblings there, but after all that's happened, Iím not sure how it will be when and if they reunite at the end of the books.

Credit goes to env1ro for the paper texture I used.

I love that daydream-Sansa seems to be putting blush powder on Lady's fur. Lady manages to look so dignified while covered in ribbons.

I think it would be cool if put these two pictures together and/or colored them!

I love the traditional CG type of coloring but I also want to experiment with just black and white or a monochromatic color scheme. When I drew these, I wasn't sure if they could stand alone as simple sketches. Somehow, (until now) they still feel unfinished to me. So I'm thinking maybe I'll do simple cel style coloring later :)

It's a good idea to put them together for more impact; not sure if I can fit them together but I'll see what I can do.

Well of course they look good as sketches; but if you want them to look more "finished" you could maybe try filling in the dark/black areas, like making Arya's hair black. Or maybe monotone/duotone with contrasting colors, like making Arya and her surroundings blue while her thought bubble of Sansa is pink. :P

That sounds like an interesting color scheme :D Good point about filling in the hair- I didn't think of that and how it would complete the look. It's not much about how good I think they are as sketches btw, or how good I think others perceive them; I just felt something was missing and at the same time I thought maybe it was just me since I'm not used to leaving as is. I find it hard to put it into words but sometimes I notice that some drawings (in deviantart) look incomplete and some don't regardless of what technical skill is displayed.
