Blood of the Dragon by JenZee Blood of the Dragon by JenZee
Hello, friends! A quick intermission away from my crazy work schedule to show you a piece I did for the upcoming (opening tomorrow!) Ltd. Gallery Game of Thrones exhibit that's focused on interpretation of the characters as they are presented in the books, rather than the HBO show.

Longtime followers of mine will understand that I was pretty much ecstatic when asked to participate since I've been a fan of the series for more than 16 years now. Though Dany isn't my favourite character, I've had such a strong image of her in my mind for SO long... this was a perfect excuse to let it out on "paper". Making this felt very much like a sigh of relief...! 

The other art looks fantastic -you should check it out at their website where prints are also available - and if you live in Seattle, the grand opening is March 1st 2014 (tomorrow!) and should definitely be worth going to!

Thanks to James Monosmith at Ltd. Gallery for putting the exhibit together, and of course, infinite thanks to George R. R. Martin for being such an incredible inspiration for me in my formative years.

Ltd. Gallery where you can see the exhibit's flyer and buy prints (mine are 12"x21" Limited Edition run of 50 selling for $75):

A great piece of work! That's a lot more like I'd imagine the Mother of Dragons than how she was shown in the series.

Very cool depiction. However doesn't the book say that her hair has completely burned off in the fire in which the dragons hatched, and she comes out of it bald?

This is amazing! Not that I don't love Emilia Clarke, I do. It's just refreshing to see a more book-accurate depiction of the character every once in a while.

Right down to the white lion pelt Drogo got for her!

Gorgeous, I love, as others say, how you've stayed true to the book version - the Hrakar pelt, the straight white hair, the violet eyes, and DAMN the little hatchling dragons are just perfect! :love: :heart:
I'm not just as fond of the versions of them in the series, I think their colours look too muted, their scales not shiny enough, and I like the longer heads, love how they came out! :dummy:

This whole piece just exudes and intensity and power - definitely worthy of the title! :headbang:
