Shamefully…I’ve only watched three episodes of Game of Thrones before getting totally derailed by a rewatch of all Cardcaptor Sakura episodes (which I don’t regret). But I wanted to tackle a design of her because 1) she’s a badass lady 2) DRAGONS!!
So, included are some sketches, a sculpted model, and a final painted version (2D) because the shape of her dress was incredibly difficult at the size I sculpted the figure at, lol.
The interesting thing about her is the combination of sort of meek, graceful compassion as well as a certain level of fierceness. I tried to capture some of these elements in this design. Daenerys in my depiction is at a later point in her life—sort of a hypothesized future of sorts, where she’s potentially closer to the throne, has a slightly more stable life thus more put together, and is more truly a “Mother of Dragons,” as well as becoming a “Dragon,” herself.
