Huge GoT fan and this is an awesome homage! I've gotten to chat with GRRM a few times and I'm pretty sure he'd be a fan of this too. Great work!

Lovely. 

Can't actually tell what's the stag's position though o_o It looks like it's lying upside down, but then the hoof would be facing the left, not down..?

This is the most epic and complete job about ASOIAF i've seen EVER!!!
Completely OUTSTANDING! All that integration, the concept, the struggle of all the families, the feeling about desperate surviving, EVERYTHING IN JUST ONE IMAGE!
You are my hero. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.

This is BRILLIANT!! It's really one of those unique images you can stare at and constantly find things you haven't seen before, a true ode to detail. By the way, do the arrows represent anything in particular?

They do! They're referencing events that happen in book 3 onwards so I didn't include a description here.
Thanks!

Reddit brought me here as it did for many others. I just wanted to say that it is a beautiful piece. The way you have incorporated the characteristics of the houses into your design layout is fantastic. I am impressed with the small details like joffery's crown on the lion or his severed hand for Jamie. The way you have made the dragons into a three headed ouroboros is neat as well.  The lion, wolf and falcon's lifelike qualities are quite impressive. All in all, I think it is a fantastic piece and I can't wait to see what you come up with next. Kudos.

Really brilliant work on this - you've clearly put in a fantastic amount of work. Every stroke gives some element texture, and there are a LOT of elements. Love it, great work!

It's the symbol for House Greyjoy of the Iron Islands. Their sigil is a golden kraken on a black field, and their house motto is "We Do Not Sow."
