Widow’s Watch is my attempt to portrait the seat of House Flint on a harsh, cold, and barren shore. It seems life has left the castle, only the violent sea and lifeless rocks remained around that place. I tried to convey the feeling of loneliness, but with a hint of hope in the distance. Lady Lyessa Flint is waiting for something that may never come back.
This is the second of three pieces I did for the exhibition “Unseen Westeros”.
Here are the other ones:
Golden Tooth, Summer Isles
The main idea behind this exhibition/art-book is to show all the beautiful places of Game of Thrones we couldn’t see in the series. Me and over 40 artists worked on this ambitious project.

I used Blender for the castle, the environment is mainly matte painting.
The creation of the castle in Blender was surprisingly simple and fast.
Just combined Boxes and Boolean modifiers, no UVs.
Texturing and shading took me a solid 5 min ^^
