    Game of Thrones Tormund Giantsbane Concept Drawing (HBO, 2011). Easily one of the most popular characters in HBO's adaptation of George R. R. Martin's book series A Song of Ice and Fire, Tormund "The Bear Husband" Giantsbane serves as one of the key supporters of the leader of the Free Folk, Mance Rayder. Presented here is an original concept drawing of this larger-than-life character dinking with one of the Giants who have joined the Wilding's quest to stop the White Walkers. Because many of the stories in the books did not make it to film, short animated vignettes were created from concept art and included in the extras section of the Game of Thrones Blue Ray DVD box set. These illustrated narratives served to fill in the gaps between the print and video versions of this epic story. The graphite image offered in this lot was drawn by Game of Thrones storyboard and concept artist William Simpson and can be seen at the 2:39 mark in "The Nations of the North by Tormund Giantsbane - Game of Thrones: Histories and Lore" on You Tube. The impressive rendering on 16.5" x 11.75" Bristol board is initialed by the artist in the lower right corner. The description "Tormund Drinks with the Giants" is handwritten by the artist on both back and the front. Mr. Simpson began his storied career illustrating for comics and transitioned to feature film work. He is credited with developing much of the look and feel of this globally popular series. The one-of-a-kind piece shows handling, edge wear and some light smudges. Condition is Very Good. COA from Heritage Auctions.
