The Final Blow by Tasty-Crayon The Final Blow by Tasty-Crayon
This picture is by Mike S. Miller.
It depicts Robert Baratheon (antlered helm) and Rhaegar Targaryen at the Battle of the Trident. It is the moment right before the Stag cleaves his hammer into the Dragons breastplate.
From the AMAZING book series by George R. R. Martin: A Song of Ice and Fire.
If you haven't read it yet, you should go do it now!
HBO also finished the first season of it, and if you have not watched it yet, go! go! go!

Westeros would have been a lot different had Rhaegar won.

Robert may have killed Rhaegar, but Rhaegar Targaryen still won even in death.

As he got Lyanna's love and they are happy in the afterlife, right?

But do you agree with me that Rhaegar and Lyanna are very happy in the afterlife (and strongly in love) while Robert Baratheon is breaking down as his delusions dissolve before his eyes?

My first thought was WOW. My eye is totally drawn to the center conflict (I love your composition here, by the way) with Robert smashing at Rhaegar. Everything about this just screams perfect. Rhaegar desperately falling but not quite dead, and Robert obviously winning and undoubtedly furious. Then I look at the background and see all the other men fighting...which makes sense, doesn't it? There's got to be other men, because it's a battle. But the entire piece evokes the idea that Robert crushing in Rhaegar with his warhammer (so badass, by the way) is the main turning point, and everything else on the battlefield just kind of fades away into the background compared to it. Ugh, and I love love love the perspective. Robert seems very dominant, and there's a feeling of impending doom every time I look at this piece. So. Perfect.

Oh, now I feel bad. I clicked on this because I thought it was the Knight Who Says Ni fighting the Black Knight. Yes, from Monty Python. Okay, I clearly need to go to sleep.

Love it. Props to Mike Miller for this epic scene. Very.... bittersweet. We see Robert as he once was - Robert as he was supposed to be. A proud, powerful, masterful king and ruler, fierce and strong. Sad that he let himself go the way he did.

Nice to see someone's giving the old warrior some love. Shame that King Robert went out the way he did; shame that his first (and only) love died at all. I've got a feeling that, had Lyanna not been killed, the man probably wouldn't have let himself go the way he did, all drunken and slovenly. Too bad, but he was probably the coolest king I've ever seen in literary context. Robert Baratheon aka The Dude King

Amazing. Robert looks just... regal right there and just by this scene you can see how he rallied Three and A Half Kingdoms (half of Seven Kingdoms) to his banner. Great work.
