The last season of HBO’s epic series is behind us. We already said goodbye to our favorite characters and this will be just another farewell thanks to Russian artist Salavant Fidai who takes his craft to the next level with a growing portfolio of incredible pencil lead art. And just like that, his latest series of micro-sculptures pays homage to Game of Thrones. Fidai’s recreated pretty much every Game of Thrones symbol, sigil, and weapon as pencil tip sculptures. He’s carved out each of the house emblems and even created tiny swords from lead, including Arya’s finely pointed “needle”. His medium of choice can easily break, so the talented artist has to be both light and steady-handed while pressing firmly enough with his X-ACTO knife to make his detailed indents and carvings. This is precisely why his renderings of House of Stark, Targaryen, and Lannister emblems are so remarkable. You can continue to admire and check out more of the Fidai’s work on his website, Instagram Page and YouTube Channel where you can see his DIY videos and useful tutorials.
Fidai takes his skills a step further by carving out some of the cast members in extraordinary detail.
This includes a full-body graphite model of Arya Stark and Tyrion Lannister, as you can see, each standing atop their own pencil platforms.
Arguably the most impressive of Fidai’s work is a pencil carving of one of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons – every scale and tooth has been carefully sculpted from graphite in mind-blowing detail.
