I have never been nothing, I am the blood of the dragon...

I LOVE Game of Thrones! Today I was dreaming about the 3rd season and saw that it won't be airing until March 31st :( So I thought I'd pass the time by doing some "Song of Fire & Ice" inspired art. I wanted to start with one of my favorite characters..the "Mother of Dragons" Daenerys Targaryen. Originally I wanted to put a lot of detail into her dragon. Only I thought it might be too easy to get carried away with it and I wanted to keep the overall look pretty simple. Plus I knew I'd be spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to create her hair without over doing it. It's in a braid AND her hair is white...Yikes! Like the Supernatural drawing I did, I used a photograph for reference. Or in this case a screen shot from the show. I also changed her eye color to purple (Targaryens are known for having purple eyes) instead of going with the hazel color the actress portraying Daenerys has. I'm a sucker for accuracy ;) I had a lot of fun creating this and I'm thinking about doing a few more characters...perhaps Jon Snow?
