Low Poly Game of Thrones Portraits Are The Envy of Westeros

[From the archives] Polygon is a long lost city of Dorne. This is the type of portraiture befitting someone from a royal family.

Leave it up to Mordi Levi, the creative mind behind Game of Firms, to give us the world of George R. R. Martin in a fragmented glory that elicits the fragmented morality of its universe. Though most are used to seeing the lands of Westeros and Essos in blood-spattered high-definition, Levi combines two of the internet’s most cherished treasures into a more rudimentary approach. Rather surprisingly, unlike so many in GoT, this type of marriage works.

The low-poly style overtakes our papercraft, illustrations, as the style best fits the sullen look of one Arya Stark. This is the type of portraiture befitting someone from a royal family:

Levi was nice enough to reveal a basic rubric of his work process as you can see him creating a polygon grid over Maisie Williams’ face.

Followed by a coloring of the free-standing grid.

And so on and so forth.

Given a similar treatment includes Khal Drogo...

...the socialite Tyrion Lannister...

...Margaery Tyrell...

...and everyone’s favorite Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen.

For the complete set, take a look at Mordi Levi’s Behance profile. Game of Thrones Season 5 premieres on Sunday
