Update: I met George R.R. Martin at San Diego Comic-Con! - I got to share this Journal with him, and he confirmed how much he loves MarcSimonetti and the art works he makes, not just the throne but generally. I agree. -- Awesome! And Congrats Marc!! (I can't find the photo of he and I, I'll post it soon!)

Update 2: Turns out, MediaBistro had actually beaten me to the punch on this scoop. Legit!

I'm about to share with you some Game of Thrones awesomeness we discovered thanks to my friend Anand Kishore, but ... first: If you were gracious and responded with the kind of passion many of you did to my deviantART v999 Journal -- Then you should know that to be just as gracious, I've asked danlev and his team to review every response, dive deep to understand exactly what everyone means, and then respond officially to your suggestions. So, thank you! And know that we're taking your feedback very seriously.

Game of Thrones Awesomeness: 

As it turns out, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin has a blog titled Not a Blog over at LiveJournal. About a week ago, he posted about the Iron Throne and how the HBO series (which he says he loves) doesn't quite portray the Iron Throne the way that he saw it in his head. Here's a snip from his blog:

The Iron Throne is DEVIOUS!!!!

It should come as no surprise at this point that deviants are behind the concept work for just about everything in entertainment. The depiction of what the true Iron Throne should look like is no different, with our very own MarcSimonetti (deviant since November 2006) as the artist behind George R. R. Martin's official reference for what the Iron Throne should look like. 

The Iron throne by MarcSimonetti
"This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Asymmetric. It's a throne made by a blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes.." - George R.R. Martin, Author, Game of Thrones

For the record, the wide majority of our team here at deviantART are gigantic fans of the show. Nommy smile mini

Oh man, I love Game Of Thrones. It's without a doubt the best television show ever. That more true-to-lore throne looks amazing. It kinda changed my perception of its tv version. It looks so puny in comparison.

    There are other details altered in the show as well, but all in all it's quite enjoyable to see they follow the books' action pretty accurate.

That is awesome! Yeah, I saw that piece on Facebook, and I was taken back a bit wondering if it was closer to it's portrayal in the books.
