Prince Doran Martell by InTheArmsOfUndertow Prince Doran Martell by InTheArmsOfUndertow
Prince Doran Martell, regent of Dorne and father of the princess Arianne Martell. Doran suffers from gout, so he is presented to us like someone who is in pain constantly, and is hardly able to walk. Therefore, he is always sitting, with a blanket on his knees and enjoying the peacefulness of the gardens.

He reminds me somehow of Marcus Aurelius, my favorite Roman Emperor. Given his taste for peace and the simple, beautiful things of life, he could have written the famous Meditations. Too bad that his own country is claiming for blood and revenge instead of peace and meditation. How will Doran cope with convulse times?


Uuh..In contrast to Asha, I really like how this turned out. The background is crappy, but I thought it would be better to do something instead of leaving it blank.

Doran Martell is a character from the A Song Of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

Very probably my single favourite depiction of The Prince of Dorne!

Amazing art. House Martell are my favourite family from a song of ice and fire. Doran sort of looks like General Tullius from the elder scrolls v: skyrim 8-)

Grazie mile! I just love to imagine Doran in a quiet, peaceful garden, enjoying the sun and the smell of the sweet oranges. Sigh :_D

It's very lively. I imagine him looking at the sea from the front porch of his chambers.

First off: another picture I really love. I adore the Martells, they are probably my favourite family (including the Sand Snakes, obviously) out of the books.

Doran is a pretty badass guy, it would be cool to see more art of him.

Secondly: new Avatar episodes? O_O *runs off*

Hrmm, I know I've seen at least two other versions of Doran fan art floating around, but I have to say I like your version the best so far. I think it's because you've made his hair light, but not gray. You know, just great color choices all around.

Dammit, you're making me want to draw this guy, now. *laughs*

Oh, please, do. I'd love to see your take on Doran. He's an interesting character, and there's not much fanart of him. You'd do a beautiful job for sure.

Btw--Avatar's new chapters! I just watched them. Omg.
