We've covered the work of German studio Karakter before here on Fine Art, but since the company just finished up some work on Xbox One launch title Ryse - not to mention the third season of HBO's Game of Thrones - now's as good a time as any for a fresh look at their stuff.

The Ryse stuff is good, but I think I prefer the rougher Game of Thrones work better. Though maybe that's just because they've got Davos in there.

You can see more of Karakter's work at their company site.
