I was lucky enough to have this challence come up when it did. I work at Upper Canada Village and it was our Medieval Festival weekend. I have to say I'd never heard of the show before. So I asked a lot of the medieval entertainers about it. Then I googled quotes from the show. This guy was actually watching a dragon!!

This was also my 100th entry so I am very pleased with the finish. I was at 6.600 at 11:30 and 81 votes so I was surprised to see the drop on the last two votes. I'm still happy though!

I also had the pleasure of meeting ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) .

Congrats on the HM. Cool shot - I love his expression and his costume. This was my equal top pick along with 5th place.

The man who fears losing has already lost. Looks a bit masculine to be Arya.

With the long sword, can't help feeling this should have been portrait to leave more room at the top and remove negative space from the right. Excellent portrayal of the theme, though.
