King Baelor, the Blessed by Oznerol-1516
King Baelor, the Blessed
Baelor, the zealous, deeply religious, ninth King of the House Targaryen. Known as Baelor the Blessed to smallfolk and lords alike. Baelor was a septon-king, and stories about his piety, charity and zealotry are well-known. He built the Great Sept at King's Landing, replacing the one at Oldtown as center of the Faith. His mysticism and zeal made him fast for days in a row and he never consumated his marriage.

This picture was inspired by the Counter-Reformation portraits of Saint Francis of Assisi, specially one by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, a baroque Spanish artist. I wanted to depict the King at prayer, almost in ecstasy, a mystic, while keeping the typical Targaryen features.

The King supposedly died during a long fast, but some say he was in fact poisoned by his uncle and successor, Viserys II, his Hand.

I love to draw since I have memory... But, as I'm a historian on my own, I love to draw historical scenes and characters, trying to bring them to life. I use few digital programs as Corel, GIMP, and MyPaint for my artworks but I'm far more skilled drawing by hand, being the pencil my favoured tool. Maybe I don't choose trully popular, or known, themes for my artworks, but I don't really care. I hope everyone who visit this page will at least like some of my few "paintures".
Thanks for reading!

And leave comments! I'm also open to criticism.
