I never really had a strong mental image for Melisandre. In my mindís eye she was always just sort of a sultry red blob. But I wanted to try my own version before the TV show ends up cementing her image in my head. This was my attempt.
In most of the fanart I've seen she always seems to be wearing these incredibly slinky cleavage-baring gowns, but that type of outfit doesn't exactly scream "priestess" to me so I thought I'd try a different approach. AFAIK the book only says that it's a long loose silk gown with dagged sleeves.
