It's the third time I'm drawing Daenerys and by far my favourite. She's one of my favourite ASoIaF/GoT characters and I just had to do another piece. The reference I used for this one is a still from an upcoming episode which I screengrabbed from a Invitation to the Set video. I wanted her to look slightly more warrior like so I picked this Resort 2016 Louis Vuitton dress (media.style.com/image/fashion-…
) mainly because I love the armour look of the sleeves. As a devoted book reader, I decided to stay faithful to the Targaryen look and give her the lilac eyes which turned out really good in my opinion. The background took me a while to figure out as I had no idea what to do but I went with the blue and vermillion bleeding into each other. To me these colours are the very essence of the recurring Ice and Fire theme in the series but one could also interpret them as the blue that Dany usually wears in the show(especially in past seasons) and the firey colour of dragonflame. Season 5 has been insane so far and even though I have issues with certain changes from the books(like Jaime's arc, lack of Lady Stoneheart etc) I can honestly say I love it. I'm also planning a Sansa piece among others(non ASoIaF/GoT related) for the near future so stay tuned!
Hope you like this!
P.S.: I used my Derwent Coloursoft pencils for the first time on this one and loved them!
