Daenerys Targaryen by pat-mcmichael Daenerys Targaryen by pat-mcmichael
FINISHED !!!!! Daenerys Targaryen from HBO's Game of Thrones played by Emilia Clarke. This was drawn from a reference photo and embellished a bit! I don't like to stick too close to the reference pic because my goal IS NOT to reproduce a photo but rather create what is CLEARLY an illustration. If I wanted to reproduce a photo, it's a lot easier to stick it in a copier and hit "print". My goal is also "NOT" photo realism...If this looks like a photo to you, then I have failed my goal. I wanted this to instantly be recognized as a pencil drawing.
Anyway, I hope you like this.

Thank You Zindy!!!!!  It's nice to know you still stop buy to look into my gallery!  I just do not get the traffic I used to get years ago...I wish I knew why.  There was a time when I would get over 100 comments on the same day I uploaded a drawing!  I think maybe many people have moved to FaceBook or something, or my worse fear is that Pencil Illustrations are falling out of favor.

I think it's Facebook, nothing to do with you.
I often see people writing they have left Deviantart. Facebook unites so many these days, with people being so busy all the time it's just easier to connect through one place.
I had a long time where I didn't really used Deviatart much, I still don't to be honest. Yours just caught my eye in the Deviations and it had been a while since I saw your work :)
I don't think it's anything personal, things have dropped for me as well, unless people don't like both you and I's work ;) It's just that people aren't here the way they used to.

That is so beautiful, how on earth do you do the little flyaway hairs around the edge that are white on black. Erased, white pencil? Anyway, very talented work.

She looks younger, more innocent and closer to my imagination of Dany. And also, her hair is a bit too dark in my opinion, but still so beautiful! I think I'm in love Love
