Ned Stark by Felipenn Ned Stark by Felipenn
Lord Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and head of the house Stark!
At least, one of the main characters! And one of my favorites too! Hope you enjoy it!

Greatly done! With the long face and the solemn look. And Ice of course. You can clearly see it's a double handed sword. For the life of me i cannot understand why people draw those huge swords with enough room on the handle for only one hand. Even fencing swords, which are comparatively sissy, are heavier then they seem, i can't imagine how heavy great swords are.

Huh ? Swords are generally very light. The largest sword ever was 10 kg, and Ice would be around 4 or 5 kg due to the valyrian steel.

Okay, so Ice weights 5 kg. Less than your average Christmas turkey. It sounds pretty light, but if you have to fight for hours swinging those 5 kg around with just one hand, your shoulder and arm muscles are going to cramp into oblivion, notwithstanding the weight of the armor. I don't care how much training you've done, you will get exhausted quite quickly and your enemies will thank you for it. So either you have muscles the size of melons, like the Mountain, or you swing broadswords with two hands.

You are right. I never said you had to swing then one-handed, which is totally impossible given the sheer size of it. And I think you meant greatswords in the above, a broadsword being a scottish basket-hilted sword.

Ah yeah, that's what I meant, that people love to draw characters gallantly swinging these huge swords with just one hand and it just isn't viable. 

Woops, yes, I meant greatswords, my apologies. ^^

Greatsword with one-hand is a huge no-no.

Thanks!!! A longsword could be as heavy as 15 Kg (or 33 lbs!)!!
I love how Sean Bean played the role in the series, and its really hard to imagine Ned otherwise, but... We cant deny Ned have dark hair and the long horse face, so, I tried my best!

You actually did great, you took the best of Sean Bean's character portray and added the physical attributes described in the book! :)
