For some reason they remind me of Arslan Senki's reprint covers by Shinobu Tanno.

Tyrion Lannister actually looks as his book counterpart for once. Not even the comic managed to do that. The covers go off source material a bit this is a strong reinterpretation.
This reminds me of the Guin Saga (meh) covers too.

Love the Stark kids. Not sure the two Dany covers are internally consistent - they don't look like each other. Also, her Dances cover should have her hair much shorter - it was burned off. She came out of the fire bald.

I saw the photo at the top and immediately though of Brienne rather than Jaime.

For the most part, I like, although Jon Snow as a bishounen gets some laughs from me. It's also not hard to see why they had to change Tyrion for the show.

These are cool. Now it would be cool to see a image of Brienne of Tarth.

Sansa doesn't look like she should IMO. Looks too princely.

Awesome covers, I've actually been fairly disappointed with cover art for books recently. It would be nice to see these comes to NA.

I got a total Joan of Arc vibe. (Kind of reminded me of the way Joan of Arc looks in Madoka.)

These were actually done by a group of three artists! Ken Suguwara, Noriko Meguro, and Yasushi Suzuki. On this list the first three belong to Ken, while the fourth is the only piece from Meguro on the list. The last eight are the work of Suzuki, the artist who worked on Sin & Punishment and Ikaruga at developer Treasure.

they should make Game of Thrones anime. It has everything that's needed for an anime. it's just like Light novel such as Legend of the Legendary Heroes. The only think that's missing is probably crazy eyes magic/tech.
