Daenerys Targaryen by Nathalief87 Daenerys Targaryen by Nathalief87
Yes!! It's the Khaleesi from Game of Trones! Since season 3 I am so excited about the series so I wanted to portray a few interesting characters, starting with Daenerys. I know this is a relatively old picture and so many artists have already drawn/painted this portrait (and their work is soooo good) but I didn't find any other picture that really inspired me. I still think there is something not exactly right with the drawing. I think it doesn't capture her specific traits and I tried very long to adjust it but in the end you gotta now when to let go. So not overexcited about this one but on to the next one!
Graphite on bristol, 19x25 cm

This Is actually one of my Favorites, It's important to capture the Look of Strength in the Character from this Wonderful TV Series.

Thanks! :) I used white bristol and I tried to keep the hair as white as possible by not adding to much graphite.

I absolutely love this portrait. Very well done. The hair is amazing and I'm going to look at this for a reference to help improve my hair drawing technique. Simply wonderful.

Thank you! I draw the loose hairs with the tips or sides of a cut-up eraser. Something I learned along the way. :)
