Tim Burton films hold a special place in my childhood. I remember crying at the end of Edward Scissorhands and loving Batman Returns to death, especially when The Penguin bit that dude’s nose at a gala and when Michelle Pfeifer gets shot but doesn’t die because she has nine lives from magical cat powers, or something. I dunno, it was Tim Burton’s sh*t so it was pretty awesome.
Burton hasn’t put out the most stellar sh*t as of late, with his last really awesome movie being Sweeney Todd, but that doesn’t mean we can’t love the guy’s aesthetic, which is undeniable.
And although I wouldn’t necessarily think that a Game Of Thrones series directed by Burton would be anywhere near as amazing as the brilliant production they’ve currently got on the air, I do wonder what Burton’s vision would be like if applied to these characters.
Which is why it’s so awesome that artist Xenia Rassolova decided to take popular GOT characters and give them the old Burton treatment for Obsev.
Here we’ve got Bran chilling with the three-eyed crow.
An animation student in Canada, Xenia definitely captured Tim Burton with these fan favorite characters: like Cersei and a pre-handless Jaime.
The mother of dragon’s here in full effect too.
No character list would be complete without Jon Snow, with his trust Ghost by his side.
Margaery Tyrell, looking exceptionally Corpse Bride-ish.
Samwell Tarly, gripping a book, as always.
And all-of-a-sudden-awesome Sansa, who’s probably watching you-know-who getting their face ripped off.
Oh yeah and the halfman himself, Tyrion.
This scary White Walker too.
And then the whole cast, posing for a group portrait.
They look pretty dour, even for Game Of Thrones characters, right? (h/t obsev)
