She-bears

“She-bears, aye,” said Lady Maege. “We have needed to be. In olden days the ironmen would come raiding in their longboats, or wildlings from the Frozen Shore. The men would be off fishing like as not. The wives they left behind had to defend themselves and their children, or else be carried off.” “There’s a carving on our gate,” said Dacey. “A woman in bearskin, with a child in one arm suckling at her breast. In the other hand she holds a battleaxe. She’s no proper lady, that one, but I always loved her.”
– from A Song of Ice and Fire, A Storm of Swords

A little bit late for International Women’s Day, but this fanart I have been working on seems so appropriate for International Women’s Day! I could’t help but add my small self in there with my sketchbook! For full color version of the woman of Mormont’s gate, check out my deviantart page here.
