Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art.
On with the dump!
Above: With Matt Smith about to bow out of Doctor Who, Zzoha and other artists offer a send off. Featured as part of a Doctor Who Fan book, the above is a trippy adventure between the Doctor and Clara. [Deviant Art]
Hit the jump for Donkey Kong, Carol Marcus and more.
Season 3 is coming – this weekend! It’s been nine months since we last saw the struggle between the noble families of Westeros as they fight for control of the Iron Throne, and things are looking quite grim for the people beyond The Wall. In preparation, we’ve picked some of our favourite pieces of Games of Thrones fanart from around the net just for you, so until Sunday rolls around lets all enjoy!
Above: This how a lot of people are hoping Game of Thrones ends once the books are finished and the series is filmed, Tyrion Lannister on the throne. Bobby Chiu, one half of imaginism with Kei Acedera, thought so anyway and put together this perfect representation of the true king. He even recorded the entire process start to finish. [Deviant Art]
Good grief, winter is leaving. Adams Pinto put together this awesome Peanuts/Game of Thrones mash-up, originally for sale on t-shirts, but we wanted to show it off while not on someone’s body. It might not be available anymore, but at least it looks nice. [The Mary Sue]
The stuff of northern legends, White Walkers are the one race that could frighten even the toughest of men, and Caner Inciucumakes them look awesome. Accompanied by a pair of Wights, or zombies, their icy blue stare makes everything a bit creepier. [Deviant Art]
This isn’t the throne you’re looking for, it’s a bit more explosive. Created by Styerd in a piece called “Game of Clones” this Star Wars/Game of Thrones mash up is pretty dang cool, but even with all those blasters that trooper couldn’t hit the broad side of an Imperial cruiser. [GeekTyrant]
Light and shadows make anything cool in the right light and Robert Ball nailed it with these Game of Thrones head shots. Featuring several of the cast in a series of light and dark shots is a clever way to show both sides of a character. Needs more Hodor, but we have that covered. [The Mary Sue]
You simply can not do a Game of Thrones art appreciation with out Brandon Stark and Hodor featured at least once. This very Calvin and Hobbes styled drawing by Joel C. GIll shows off one of the finer points of the series. Sure, he only says one word, but if he could speak more he totally would. [Roaches Have Wings]
While we can’t got to places like Winterfell or Dragonstone, considering even with our technology we’d be screwed, at least we can show off our favourite locations at home. These Game of Thrones location posters created by Harshness are great ways to show off the size of some of the Seven Kingdoms’ nest known locations. [The muffled sounds of SCIENCE in the distance]
There’s not really much that we can say about this without bringing up the shrouded past of Tony Stark and his history in Westeros. What we can tell you is that Zach Jordan really knows how to keep an Iron Man joke from dying. [Deviant Art]
Daenerys Targareyen doesn’t have time for clothing, she’s the mother of dragons and she’s out to rule. One of the finest 2D drawings out there, TeiIku’s art should be on one of the covers of George R.R. Martin‘s books. [CGHUB]
Finally, we apologize for the sheer size of this beast, but we couldn’t ignore joscomie‘s massive Game of Thrones anime scroll. Featuring 49 of the characters from the television adaptation all packed onto one giant scroll in a sweet Japanese anime style. What a great way to show off the scale and scope of the show’s production. Bring on Season 3! [io9]
