The Red Viper - Oberyn Martell by higheternity The Red Viper - Oberyn Martell by higheternity
One of my favorite minor characters in George R.R. Martin's series "A Song of Ice and Fire". He only appears in "Storm of Swords", but Oberyn has tons of personality to say the least. He's very memorable for me, and I look forward to meeting him again every time I reread the books.

Oberyn is probably one of the reasons I think Dorne is so interesting a kingdom in the series. :P

This is my first fanart of ASOIAF. The armor he's wearing is taken directly from the description of his armor when fighting Gregor Clegane in the novel, minus the helm (which would have covered up his hair! Can't have that).

I might post a shot of the detailing later. He's taken me over a month to finish after all...


Hope the HBO series gets to season 3 so I can see Oberyn. James Purefoy for his actor, please!

Really nice work. Wish they had used this for his card in the CCG.

That's an amazing Oberyn...It's so amazing, I based my sketchy drawing involving him off yours. I hope you don't mind...

Same. I wonder why it took me so long to realize Deviant had ASOIAF art.

This may be the best picture of Oberyn in his armor I've ever seen (& I'm a huge Oberyn fan).

Excellent job!
