Say Goodbye to the Last Dragon by denkata5698 Say Goodbye to the Last Dragon by denkata5698
This scene probably never happen but anyway, the last time Elia and Rhaegar saw each other. I purposely made him look very cold and emotionless because we all he was a dick to poor elie. (I want to clarify, I'm sure he did not abuse or offend Elia, but he ran with another woman and definitely is the reason for her death, so yeah he's not the best person) and yes I also stand for Rhaegar&Lyanna i already did a drawing for them :D
PS this is the fastest semi realistic digital paining I've ever done, Im doing one portrait of jimmy q and its taking me ages and this was about 6 hours.
Reference: Some screencap from Vampire Diaries I found on google for the body poses and Elia's face (yeah its Nina Dobrev in general :D) and Alex Pettifer for Rhaegar's face.

He has failed as a husband. He is the reason why his wife, his child and other random child killed in the first place.
Too bad, he is dead.

No one is actually sure if they did love each other the same happened with Lyanna Stark

"He didnt love her and was forced to marry her... how would you act?" What a idiotic question is that? What if every lord and lady act like Rhaegar what would happened to him in Medieval Age? He is a son of a bitch so get over it.

Not to criticise your drawing, but I don't see Rhaegar as cold in this drawing, I see concern. Concern that his actions are going to affect Elia in worse ways than he anticipated. I adore this art though, it's amazing xx

hmm .. no, I never thought of Rhaegar as a bad person.. maybe he had his reasons xD... How do you know if Elia was not cheating on him too? Some say that she was strangely close to Oberyn ... and we all know how Oberyn is xD .. I know that is not an excuse for what he did, but ... I just said I was in love with THAT Rhaegar, because yes, he looks very handsome and physically as I pictured  him in my mind :P and sorry for my bad english xD

well bad news I guess, i didn't like how the horse and armor were coming up and I completely scrapped the drawing except his face as I was happy with it and I started again. Now it will be just Rhaegar standing still with his hand on his sword. Sounds boring but believe me it's better than the original

This is exactly how I will imagine Rhaegar when I read ASOIAF again. :]
(Even though he is despicable for what he did to poor Elia).

This face suits him very well! 8]

The exotic nature of Elia is captured well, especially with her dress and headband. Absolutely fantastic, although I wouldn't have noticed the fact that you modeled their faces on popular actors. Alex Pettifer was a huge revelation. Keep up the fantastic work.

I thought his 'faithlessness' was guided by the visions he had, he knew his house would need a third child, and it's rather nice of him not to trouble Elia again, who was already spent.

I know what you mean, but I can't blame Rhaegar too much. The problem was not that he was unfateful. He was a human being with feelings after all. The problem lies with that people are forced to marry people they do not love and then expected to live without it.

Ned and Cat was lucky to have their feelings becoming true, strong and wondeful as it was. Most forced and arranged marriages do not.

I feel very sad for Elia, but equally much for Rhaegar and Lyanna as well.
Love is a raw emotion that can not be controlled. "Blood status and other reason to whom and why you should marry can.

Sigh. Every thing was so messed up.

While I do think it was kinda mean to go off with another girl, I stand by Rhaegar and Lyanna, no matter what. Elia was not his true love. Tons of marriages have ended worse when the couple wasn't in love. (Robert and Cersei's for one.) So, I think it was for the better.
Btw, nice work. :)

I must be one of the few persons who think that Rhaegar and Elia actually loved each other, just not in a fiery way. She was his "mud", as would say Barristan Selmy.

Really beautiful work.

Well, we don't know know much about what REALLY happened with Lyana and him. Could have been an affair for far different reasons than romance, and I expect it to be revealed as so.

Love the pose, love the mood, love the expressions on their faces-I'm not sure if he did treat Elia that badly but his kidnapping of lyanna stark is an indicator that he did not love her or he is one cruel dragon. Or perhaps there maybe something underfoot yet to be revealed in that love triangle!

This is great! I love the detail. However later you find that he wasnt as bad as everybody made him out to be. Nowhere near as bad as The Mad King or even Robert.
