Lyanna Stark Game of Thrones by DubuGomdori Lyanna Stark Game of Thrones by DubuGomdori
Lyanna was known to be a spirited young, kinda wild, woman, and an excellent equestrian. Exhibiting the typical Stark colorings, she was known to be beautiful. Arya, her niece, is said to be as beautiful as her. Yet, Arya considers herself ugly.

Eddard (Ned) Stark is Lyanna's older brother who rushed Dragonstone to rescue her with six companions in a building Rhaegar named the Red Mountains of Dorne. Eddard found Lyanna in a pool of blood breathing her last air. She asked Ned to Promise her something. We still do not know what that is. We do believe Ned kept that promise because of his loyalty to her. He had visited her grave frequently in Winterfell where the Stark line is cared for.

The crown she holds has a stag and dragon fighting over her. Her heart breaks from this, hence the broken heart. The stag represents her betrothed Robert Baratheon, while the Dragon represents Prince Rhaegar of Dragonstone, the House of Targaryen. Eddard Stark kneels grieving for his lost sister clutching the wreath of winter, blue roses. Both sleeves show dire wolves, the symbol for the House of Stark. Behind is the hallway leading into the tomb chambers of the Stark lineage.

Winter is Coming!

Very honored to have this artwork featured:

I'm hoping that the promise turns out to be Jon because I don't get would be so important if it was something else.

Love this picture. So nicely drawn, so incredibly detailed. I love Lyanna. I love Rhaegar (check out my picture of him ;)
I saw your picture of Rhaegar. Again incredible work, though if I may be honest he looked a bit feminine. Still a great picture. Just wanted to throw in my two cents. Keep up the good work!
