The artists at Robot Entertainment used to have ‘theme projects’ over on the RobotEntertainment.com blog section. We did a bunch of different themes like ones for Super Heroes, Saturday Morning Cartoons, Fantasy, G.I. Joe, Clash of the Titans, and robots.
Our first theme for the Ten Ton Blog was a great source of inspiration for me personally. I am shamelessly addicted to the Game of Thrones series. I must have watched every episode at least 10 times. Every character in that show is so rich of personality and well thought out by the author.
One of the first things that came to mind for me was thinking of those characters in a fighting game, similar to a Capcom Street Fighter game, and that what inspired the tone of my submission for the Game of Thrones theme.
The hardest part was picking only 2 characters : )
