Germany’s Karakter Design Studio, which creates Game of Thrones’ concept art, put up a number of their Season 4 designs — with artist comments on many of them. Unless you’re the type who freeze-frame and steps through every scene, you’ll want to peruse these gorgeous photos. It’s easy to see why the team has won Emmys for Outstanding Visual Effects three years running.

“The set we had available for Moat Cailin did not match the description in the books, but it gave us the opportunity to design the castle after a Motte and Bailey model, which is not just a nice phonetic match, but also a castle type that fits the world perfectly.” Tobias Mannewitz

“The visual design of the wights had to tell a story, so everything had to make sense: What kind of people could have died north of the wall? Some had died a long time ago, which gave them the look of an ice mummy.” Robert Simon

“The Child of the Forest design was a tough nut to crack: It’s design was an open field, so we had to develop many options to find the right one. We had to avoid the look of an elf or a fairy, while keeping the physiognomy of the actress unchanged.” Robert Simon
