Now THIS is the mother of Dragons !!!
Beautiful. I just got past this chapter in the book, and it made me giddy. Especially after all the political pussy-footing she had to do. It's on my list of things to illustrate too. I love the look of the brushes on Drogon, and Danny's face. She looks so comfortable, but determined.
Thank you for reading the book as well, I'm of the opinion people need to read it to fully appreciate the scope of ASOIF
I'm not usually a huge fan of Daenery's fanwork : as a fan of the books rather than the series I miss seeing personal interpretation of the characters by artists, rather than semi-realistic portraits of the actors. That's also what I really like about your work. Dany is very recognizable here, and I like how her fierce and untamed look mirror that of Drogon, especially considering what just (almost) took place at that moment in the story.
Haha thanks! I agree; this tends to be a problem when a novel is brought into the visual medium. If they do a good job I don't mind, but I believe that we should hold onto our visions of the characters in our heads, since they were there "first", so to speak. We may borrow elements from the visual interpretation, but we should also hold onto our imagination as well. I mean, that's part of our jobs as artists, right? Same problem seems to be happening to Ironman; Rober Downey Jr. nailed it so well some people are just drawing him instead of their own interpretation of what Ironman originally looked like.
What a beautifull Drogon! Fantastic work
