Few shows make people feel… anything, quite like Game of Thrones does. When a character on the show dies, it makes people happy, but usually sad, depressed, angry. And in honor of these dead characters, comes this wonderful art project.
Ertaç Alt?nöz, or ertacaltinoz on Deviantart, took the more notable dead Game of Thrones characters from the TV show and gave them a Wight (GOT zombies) kind of makeover, with the way of death of something from the death scene itself showing in the image, sometimes as hint alone, creating a powerful collage of morbidity and beauty fused together.
Died giving birth to Jon Snow.
Got his head chopped off.
This one really broke my heart. Couldn’t believe what I was reading when I made it to the passage in the books.
Got her throat sliced. In the show, she stays dead. In the books…
Got a crossbolt in his belly while trying to have a quiet evening in the bathroom.
Poisoned at his own wedding. Tough luck.
Got his face smashed the f*** in.
Hodor… Just Hodor
Died casually leaning on a door.
Burned down in a gush of wildfire.
Turned into toast.
Met Arya, tried to kill her, should have known better.
Died like a knight should: With a sword in his hand.
