There's definitely some CG enlarging going on, e.g. when Grey Wind stalks into Jaime's cell.
Disreagard the text, but this picture is an example of what I'm talking about:
It looks cg to me, especially when it moved.
They grab regular northern inuit dogs and they beef up their size.
The fake feel you get comes from them trying to composite the bigger dog into the scenne.
The composition is not always seamless.
Basically, yeah. They upscale the model but in doing so they try to reduce the visible pixellation and have varying degress of success given the time and budget they have to work with. Bran falling out the tower in the pilot episode looks ropey if you look at it a few times.
The departures from the books are getting staggering with the latest few episode, and I like it. It keeps me on my toes.
I can understand cutting out the whole of the Riverlands. Pretty superfluous in the grand scheme of things.
Stay away from the chimps. You can't reason with them and you'll just end up with monkey shit all over your clothes.

Do you suppose Tywin knows who Arya is??? Or does he simply suspect she is of a more noble birth than she is leading on?
