Queen of the northern seas

Asha Greyjoy, renamed Yara to avoid confusions (??) with Osha. Anyway, I don't like how they portrait her in the HBO series (big surprise, since she was one of my fav characters), not for the actress, but for her behavior. I was expecting someone funnier, more charming and sarcastic. Too bad she does not seem to be important enough to play her by the book ... yep, she's only in half the chapters of book 4 o_0 ..

Renly's girls



Because one can't live only on Mass Effect ... well, not fooling anyone, lately I do, but gotta practice drawing other stuff so transition is not so sharp when I finish (soon) the game.
I like Brienne's character in HBO "A Game of Thrones" very much. She is exactly as I pictured them in the books (well, I thought she would be uglier, rather than just manly, but the rest is simply perfect), unlike Asha -now Yara- Greyjoy, that they turned into a despicable character on TV, instead of the humorous, smart pirate she is in the books. About Margaery, being played by the actress she is, I sort of  expected her to be like that; there goes the mystery and intrigue on whether she is a player or a pawn, innocent or not, and everything that still has not been revealed in the books. Poor Cersei was right at least in this :D

Guadalquivir riverside


Running through Sevilla. It reminds me of my Lorca's fav poem: "El río Guadalquivir va entre naranjos y olivos ..."

Sevilla-Malaga late train



After a superb presentation by Jorge Arranz, I had been wanting to draw the view out of a train window and last saturday I had the chance of watching the sunset from the Malaga-Sevilla train. Better yet, my friend Ubalio Martínez did this wonderful composition of myself drawing the 9 vignetes on the go. His photo actually looks better than my drawing, so I'm including it here :)

Around Malaga cathedral



A couple of spots around the cathedral (pedestrian only area). You can have a drink here and enjoy the view. Not the cheapest place, tho' :P
