The weirwood’s bark was white as bone, its leaves dark red, like a thousand bloodstained hands. A face had been carved in the trunk of the great tree, its features long and melancholy, the deep-cut eyes red with dried sap and strangely watchful.” — A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

I’m a huge “Song of Ice and Fire” fan and I’ve wanted to do a render of a “heart tree” for a long time. I’ve posted a series of “making of” photos on my Instagram account if anyone is interested.

As with all of my Vue d’Esprit renders lately, this one took an extremely long time to finish at 5K. Of course I am planning to do a multiscreen but it may be a while. If you are already a Member and a fan of my multiscreen renders I ask that you consider supporting my “Project Shadowfax” which should greatly speed up the process of bringing you artwork for your multiple screens!!
