What’s better than watching our favorite characters meet their seven makers, and our least-favorite characters get their comeuppance, in Game of Thrones? Nothing. But this video by Hannes Sommer comes close.

In this video, Austrian artist Sommer drew all of the major characters with onscreen deaths. And then he re-enacted those deaths on paper. He used paint, invisible ink and even pop-up techniques to get his point across.

I’m not going to tell you how he re-enacted Oberyn Martell’s death. You’ll have to see it for yourselves.

Remarkably, this was performed in real time, so if the action didn’t go according to plan, he would have had to start from scratch. Here is an artist with a steady hand -- as well as an ear for music: I particularly enjoy the soundtrack’s use of original dialogue.

Check it out. And brace yourselves, cuz winter is coming.
