There’s Game of Thrones fanart, and then there’s pixel art so perfect that it totally nails what each character from George R.R. Martin’s fantasy epic stands for. This set of animated pixel portraits features Khal Drogo, Oberyn Martell, Daenerys Targaryen, Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane, Jon Snow, and Tyrion Lannister as adorable diminutive versions of their normally much more serious selves.
The pixels were created by Charlie_pl as part of his pixelGOT series over at PixelJoint, and they’re definitely an inspiration to aspiring pixel artists out there who want to make art that bears a striking resemblance to the subject matter. Meanwhile, I’m over here just trying to get my simple sprite edits to resemble me somewhat.
Tyrion Lannister looks defiant as ever, with his hair flowing in the wind and a confident expression on his face.
Khal Drogo is ready to prove his worth, with a bloody weapon and that familiar air of superiority.
The regal Oberyn Martell is a force to be reckoned with.
Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane is, as usual, out for blood.
Daenerys Targaryen poses here with her faithful dragons.
Jon Snow knows nothing, and Ghost is standing beside him fiercely.
Finally, the gang’s all here, joined together in this last shot.
