Prince Oberyn Martell by InTheArmsOfUndertow Prince Oberyn Martell by InTheArmsOfUndertow
Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne, a.k.a The Red Viper. Brother of Prince Doran Martell, and father of several bastards, known as The Sand Snakes.

Bisexual, ardent, skilled with poisoned spears and an excellent warrior. Not the conventional Prince Charming, true, but there's a reason why all the girls that made Wolfsister's meme- me included- mentioned him as the one they'd take to bed if they could choose among all the men in Westeros.

I dedicate this drawing to Jesatria, and to all the girls/boys out there that would love to do Oberyn. He'd love to do you too, you know.

I disagree! I didn't name Oberyn in my meme :P I stick with the Lannister boys ;)

Haha that's right, you didn't mention him! But I understand. Jaime Lannister is too hot. Between Oberyn and him, it's just a matter of wether you prefer them blonde or dark-haired, for they are both very attractive ;)

I also stuck Jaime in my meme, partially because he's a sexy bastard and so far the only blondie that I'd do, and, while I find them both very attractive, almost every picture of Oberyn I see, especially this one, looks a lot like a slightly older version of one of my friends, but with dark eyes xD

I picked Jaime on my meme just because, while they're both really sexy beasts, Jaime is alive. That's the only tipping point for me xD

Haha you have a point. Alive people usually make better lovers than corpses. Usually.

Ususally. Unless the dead person was the sexiest guy alive and the alive person was the ugliest thing to ever appear, ever. and if the dead person was still warm.

I should really be shot like, right now.

Haha you shouldn't be shot, I totally agree with you. Or, maybe we both should be shot. In that case I am happy to die for a good idea, haha ^^

In real life I usually prefer dark-haired guys (with light eyes ;) ), but I admit, Jaime wins me over :giggle:

Haha it happens the same to me! I prefer them dark-haired (though dark-eyed), but for some reason, I always end up going out with blondes with light eyes. None like Jaime of course. Sigh! ;)

Long time no see! I thought you were away on holidays or something, you're usually the first to comment! ^^. We all love Oberyn, he's probably the guy that had more girls crushing on him just in his first appearances. It's the bisexual charm, I think haha.

I really don't know, maybe it's the fact that men are usually so...hm, vehement when it comes to being straight, that considering other possibilities without losing manliness draws a very appealing picture. You know, like bi guys are more sensuous, and open minded and not conventional. Cliché speaking, of course.

Oberyn es sexy y ya está. Lo has clavado. Me encanta su mirada, es de Víbora Roja total. Cuando le he visto con la capa roja me ha recordado al cómic de 300 (no te enfades). Me gustan también mucho los colores, me reafirman en la creencia de que Dorne es espíritu Mediterráneo!

No me enfado, no me enfado ^^. Hombre, es que en el libro pone que cuando Oberyn llega a Desembarco, lleva una capa roja. Supongo que el parecido con 300 es inevitable, pero en cualquier caso, mola. El Dorne es España pero de calle, hombre.

Jeje, qué pena, ya quería abducirte para el grupúsculo que irá a Belén a adorar al niño-Martin. Le voy a regalar un libro del palo "Siempre joven a los sesenta años". Si es cierto que el té blanco te mantiene bello y terso, que las alcachofas queman la grasa y cuatro nueces diarias reducen el colersterol, espero que esté inyectándoselas en vena porque como imite a su amigo Robert Jordan y se muera sin acabar la saga, lo resucito con nigromancia, y le mato de nuevo :_D

Calla, que estoy empezando a leerme la Rueda y ya me he enterado... ¡Me ha entrado un pánico de repente! Martin es cabroncete hasta para eso. Pero yo le veo hermosote y abrazable todavía, tranquila. Además, que no está tan mayor ¬¬ (ejem) Yo también quería regalarle algo... pero me da vergüenza -_- Seguro que le encanta tu regalo, me parece muy original ^^ Bicos!

Ah, your Oberyn arrives at last! He looks like he could've stepped right out of ancient Greece. I just can't see him w/ facial hair, but that's me. Interesting that you chose to make his hair kinda curly. The Greek look certainly does work for the Dornish.

BTW, thanks for the dedication!

I just thought that facial hair would suit him, since he's no Cute Loras Tyrell: he's a warrior, and as I picture him with a greek/middle eastern air (and in the middle east, the facial hair is a symbol of manliness), I decided to give him atleast a goatee. I like facial hair on men :_D, I'm sorry!

Huh, you know. I've not seen a version before of Oberyn with curly hair. But now that I think of it, that definitely, definitely makes more sense then flowing ebony tresses or what have you. Don't the rest of the Martell women all have real wavy hair? But anyway, yes. Very spanish, Mediterranean looking fellow, and definitely the viper, although a younger version than expected (in my opinon).

:iconinthearmsofundertow:
InTheArmsOfUndertow Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008
Yeah, I totally forgot to mention that this was a much younger Viper than the one we get to know in the books. I was trying to do a "youth" scene of Doran and Oberyn sparring, but I didn't like how Doran turned out, so I kept Oberyn, changed a few things, added an insipid background, et voilà.

I'm glad you approve of curly hair. I mean, I picture Dorne like Spain in the middle ages: half roman, half moorish, half greek. Totally straight hair is possible, yeah, but...I don't know, curly suits him better, it gives him a more Agamenon look.
