Meine Lieblinge sind allerdings Arya und Ned. Arya ist einfach wunderbar getroffen und Ned strahlt die ruhe des Nordens aus. Und als Lennister muss ich auch von Tyrion schwärmen. Das Bild vermittelt das gleiche Gefühl wie die Buchszene und trifft sie genau.

The ones that I really like are Ned with Arya and the Titan. The Ned/Arya scene is a really tender moment, and one of the last happy memories you have of Ned. The Titan is just something I'd always wanted to see since I first read about it. But the best painting is clearly Tyrion, and Tyrion is true to the book in this painting. He's short, ugly, at this point completely disfigured from the war. Peter Dinklage is a fantastic actor but Tyrion isn't supposed to be handsome, he's supposed to be grotesque. And this is Tyrion's most memorable moment, with the crossbow (no spoilers!).
If you like fantasy artwork and A Song of Ice and Fire, then you'll love this calendar, although any art lover could probably appreciate most of the images, it's just fantastic.
The scenes are as follows:
January - Jon Snow
February - Reek
March - Ceasei
April - Ned and Arya with Needle
May - Titan of Braavos
June - Drogon
Centerfold - same Titan picture from May
July - Tyrion
August - Daenerys
September - Battle at Dragonstone
October - Melisandre birthing the shadow
November - The king's council
December - the wight's attack
my biggest issue is that many of these pictures seems to be generic illustrations rather than specific memorable scenes from the books. The scene in January can be any point in a Dance with Dragons, Likewise with the Daenerys scene. It would be very difficult to figure out what the September scene was if it didn't have the caption battle at dragonstone listed there. The books say that dragonstone was built with black stone and towers Shaped like dragons, the picture looks more like the battle of the blackwater to me. Ned and Arya look like they are in a suburban house rather than a castle. The Kings Council doesn't appear to be a scene from any of the books, the artist just chose to depict three members of the Council standing next to a map of Westeros.
I do like the Titan, Tyrion looking heavy with emotion, Ceasei setting up the blue bard, and Melisandre spawning the shadow. I wish the centerfold was a unique painting but it was just an enlarged print of the painting from May.
I hate to only give this 3 stars and like I said art is very subjective and art based on books has to compete with the image we have already formed in our minds. And maybe I am being a bit picky, but compared to last year this calendar is just ok, worthy of three stars. At the end of the day my opinion means very little, please Watch the video and see the works for yourself. the only opinion that matters is your own!
I dislike this because many of the scenes are very very vague - even if you've read the books 3 times... And they're all violent/awful ones except March, which is sweet with Ned and Arya.
I guess I was hoping for images that I would recognize right away, and moments in the books that I loved. This calendar feels like the artist just thumbed through the books and painted wherever his finger stopped.
Like I said, they are done by the artist working from the texts only, so if you expect art of the show characters, you're gonna have a bad time.
