Wolf Hearted by aqvarelles Wolf Hearted by aqvarelles
Arya Stark, the Wolf Hearted.

I've been living an Arya Stark appreciation life since I picked up Game of Thrones three weeks ago, and this is the result. I have about two more paintings in the making. This is just a rough sketch, but I really wanted to draw the armor she's wearing in my really huge piece. Gendry made it for her, and she's got her Needle at her side.

So, I think this is my favorite depiction of Arya of all that I've seen.  It's so lovely.  Thanks so much for sharing/drawing it!

I wonder if she will ever fully become no one when she completes her training with the faceless men. Personally I don't think she'll ever forget who she trully is. I think that she when she is fully trained she will escape Bravos and return to the North to try and avenge her family. The Faceless men will hunt her so she'll be running from them for the rest of her story. She also has the long list of people she wishes to kill. Once she avenges her family in the North, I think she will go down the list of names to kill and complete it. When that happens, the Faceless men will trap her in a corner and she'll be forced to fight to the death.

I love the style and design...I just feel like, in the face and hair line, she looks kinda like Lena Headey...And it's very hard to picture it as Arya when she looks so much like Cersei.

Gorgeous. I never imagined her quite so pretty as you draw her, but I'm loving the armor design!

I love Arya, and I love how you made her look. 
Beautiful but deadly, just how I wanted her to look. 

The contrast with the red is beautifuly done too.

This is my favorite Arya picture out of all the ones on Deviantart.  This is exactly how I envision her to look like when she's older.  And I love the contrast between the black and white and the red.  Amazing job :)

I like this piece lol although I'm not sure I would have put the nose bleed in there. This is epic, she almost looks like an older Arya.

This is probably my favorite portrayal of an older Arya. You've managed to make her very beautiful, but still allowed the harsh Stark characteristics to show which I think is so important to her character. Well done! I love the blood, too, very Arya :)

This is a lovely interpretation of Arya Stark, I really like it. The face, the hair and especially the armour. I'd love this to be available as a coloured print.

This is really beautiful. Though I think - if she could choose - her hair would stay short.

I thought about it, and thats why i gave her short hair in my other drawing. She never chose to cut her hair - she had to have it cut. Its really actually not as convenient as long hair thats braided tightly because it flops around everywhere. I dunno, Id like to see if she chooses to keep it sort or just let it grow because she actually doesnt care about looking boyish anymore.

I want the next book NOW :D

I am so curios to find out what happens to Arya.. The direction in which she is heading is somewhat sad - living only for revenge.

Maybe, as she grows older she will get in touch with her female side and will let her hair grow as beautifully as can be seen in your lovely picture.

Ugh, love. Arya is the best. (also I just finished book 3 two days ago, YAY!)
Love the freckles, the shine in the hair, and how even though the gloves are really sketchy you can just see where her fingers are.
