Everyone uploading this artists work now after the Jaime one for the karma. lol.
THESE ARE ALL FAKE, Samia Al Homsi Dagher IS A HACK
She is faking it and tricking you guys using photoshopped images in various stages of completion, multiple prints, and slick video edits with jump cuts.
Edit: here is the Jon Snow one:
The reason the image does not line up 100% perfect is that her 'drawing' was photographed at an angle laying on a table, aka, her photo of her drawing was in a slight perspective. The source image is not in perspective.
If you want to trick /sub/gameofthrones or any of reddit, follow this formula:
Step 1: Find reference image (all of her work is literally identical to reference images, no change in perspective or proportion or anything different at all, when overlayed they line up 100%, and that means FAKE AF)
Step 2: Erase background.
Step 3: Erase more and more and more of the image, and save as separate files.
Step 4: Print each file on a piece of paper
Step 5: Set up video camera pointed at your work area, start with a print that is 5% opacity of just the eyes, trace over a it a bit
Step 6: Slip your piece of paper that your hand is resting on over the image as you draw
Step 7: Swap papers with more work done.
Step 8: Edit video so you don't notice transitions much
Step 9: Post photo of print with pens to really sell your 'skills'.
If you pause/play her videos, you can see parts of the drawing that appear 'magically', but most people won't notice it in full speed.
Every one of these portraits had a photograph that EXACTLY lines up when you overlay them in photoshop. If someone finds the correct reference image used for this 'drawing', I will create another GIF that proves this one is fake, too.
Edit: Before anyone posts the video of her 'drawing' Tyrion, I implore you to first review this video by pausing it a lot. At one point, her paper slides under the other paper, and when it comes back out, the back of his hair/head has way way way way more detail and shading. This happens throughout the video. Just POOF shit is already drawn. This is because it's fake.
Edit Edit: I called her out on Facebook. She attacked me and bragged about how many instagram followers she has. She's basically super insecure and does this for instagram fame, which is really sad.
Karma is a laddah!

Regarding your previous post:
What are you talking about? I don't know what you're trying to prove here, but working from reference is a widely accepted, respected, and suggested technique that has been a thing forever. Are you calling Norman Rockwell "FAKE AF?" Also, if that gif you posted at the top is supposed to prove that the images are somehow identical, it doesn't and they're not. The angles and proportions are slightly different. Please don't attack people.

I'm glad I was right thinking that I thought these were fake.
Wow. She's a phony! A big fat phony!
exactly. she even has some interview on urdu channels and has also drawn a piece of sketch live. These people just try to undermine other people's talent because they don't have one or may b they think everyone is a liar like them
And this is how you taint someone's career. This infuriates me.
She's clearly using a reference photo but that doesn't mean it wasn't hand drawn. And she's really only using it for the face, the hair and cloak are pretty much completely different.
This artist is a hack. See me previous posts. Cannot draw and uses editing tricks to fool you people.
A right proper Starkgaryen
