Daenerys Targaryen by Nebride Daenerys Targaryen by Nebride
This is a picture :iconnebride: made for me, :iconmerewind: as a birthday-gift. Alas she did not want to upload it to deviantart, but i like it a lot, and i know she put in an insane amount of work to make it, as there are so many details in the picture. I just wanted to share this with everybody, and i hope that you like it as well :)
It is a depiction of Daenerys Targaryen from the Game of Thrones-series on TV (originally a book-series of course, but made from the visuals of the series).

- EDIT -

*Nebride speaking :) I was kind of horrified when I noticed ~Merewind had submitted this... I've had some huge emotions going on with this picture, because in my opinion it looks horrible (even though I realize this is probably one of my better works yet ._. ) to the point I couldn't even look at it. I'm feeling a little better about it now, though, and I think that instead of whining about how I could have done better, I'll try to improve instead :) I've realized that I have the tendency to just give up on my art so that my final products are just half-assed, whereas this is probably the first drawing I gave it my all. This is probably why I have such strong emotions attached to it, and why it got me down (if I gave it my all, why is it still horrible?). Anyway, I hope you can enjoy this and I promise I'll try do my best with my future art! I'm pleasantly surprised with the response I have gotten thus far at least, and it gives me strength. Thank you for viewing, you guys are great :heart:

I think you've captured her usual expression very well, especially in the eyes. The texture of her hair and of the dragon's scales look incredibly real, and you've shaded the whole thing very well. I think you're amazing.
For constructive crit, I can't say much, as I am no artist myself, but I wonder how she would look with softer shadows around her eyes.

Anyway, you silly thing, you're a great artist. Like Corvus said, your half-assed is other people's "couldn't do in a hundred years" (other people being me).

Thank you :) Several people mentioned softer shading beneath the eyes. I took their advice. Yes, she was even worse before xP

Thank you! And lol... If you wrote anything half-assed it would be twice as good as anything I could write but you would still strive to be better, I think ;) Same thing applies here xP

Agreed! I may be a flabby whale on the bottom of the sea now, panting and struggling against the waters while being poked by the passerby fishies, laughed at by the grinning sharks and unable to move... But some day... I will fly among the stars, and I expect to see you there with me ^^
