Fan Art Friday #101 – WESTWORLD, GAME OF THRONES, and More Art by Hailey Jensen

An aspect about fan art that appeals to and inspires me to put together a gallery almost every week is seeing an artist reimagine a character I know. I’m absolutely impressed by the work and craft that goes into making photo-realistic likenesses of pop culture figures, but I’m more drawn to pieces that showcase an artist’s distinct vision. I want to look at a character through fresh eyes, and I can do so through Hailey Jensen’s work.

She told me she draws “way too much fan art,” and I count the activity as a positive. The pieces she shared with me show strong and moody depictions of some of the most interesting female characters in current fandoms—characters like Dolores from Westworld.Fan Art Friday #101 – WESTWORLD, GAME OF THRONES, and More Art by Hailey Jensen_1

Dolores (Westworld)

The Dolores painting is Hailey’s second time experimenting with gouache paint. Watch the process in this video:

See a few more kick-ass ladies in the gallery below, including a Lannister and some Starks from Game of Thrones. You’ll also find a Star Wars mural (watch a process video for that one here). You can keep up Hailey’s latest and greatest on DeviantArt and Instagram.

Do you create any sort of fan art? If so, I want to see it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories and mediums, I’d like to highlight what you do. If you’re interested in being featured in a future edition of Fan Art Friday, get in touch with me at [email protected] with examples of your work.
