Take me to your Dragon Queen (updated)

Here's one of the characters I dislike big time. Daario Naharis, the cocky captain of the Storm Crows that Daenerys fell in love with and became a fuckin idiot. I don't really remember how Daario was described beside the blue hair and 3 point beard and the weapons with metal naked women as handles. The guy is complete douche but it was fun to draw him. I picked a picture of the one and only jack sparrow for reference :D This is a possible scene moments before we saw Daario in the books for the first time
PS I updated his armour, hair and coat

Now THERE's the Daario Naharis I know from the books.
Awesome work/portrayal.

Oh, how I loathe him. It's a shame Jorah and Ser Barristan never arranged an unfortunate "accident" for him.

Wow, this is how he should look. I could only imagine him looking ridiculous, based on the book description, and I found it weird that Dany liked him. But I could imagine her fall in love with this version. I wish they at least kept the blue beard in the series, it would've looked more interesting. Great artwork.

wooooooooow... this should be daario naharis? wtf? what have this show done?!
denkata5698's avatar
he's supposed to be even more flamboyant, but the dumb show toned down essos so much that it looks bit boring. Still they are doing a good job on the outfits in westeros I dare say

Wow ! You draw Daario like he's described in the books, and you managed to make him look beautiful (I.M.O.) despite his erm... peculiar hairstyle. Well, you had a nice model ! ^^
It's-A me, Daario!
Yes, when I first red about him, I thought: Jack Sparrow.

I love Daario... and this is a great draw!

You know, I could never imagine Daario the way he was described in the books, with the blue beard and all, but my brother mentioned he imagined him as Jack Sparow, and it somehow became easier. And now you... Great picture!

Daario is a very handsome guy, not da ugly and old man that other people portrays wrongly...

Very, very beautiful!! you caught his real description.

"It's CAPTAIN Daario Naharis. Captain of, er, your dreams. Yeah, that's it."

Mistook him for Euron Greyjoy first because of the pirate-y looks and because I didn't see his blue hair. I don't think the coat is very period-appropriate for Westeros and Essos, but that makes it all the more awesome. ARRGH.

Ooo! This is my favorite picture of Daario. You capture the roguish intensity that would make Dany so fangirly. I thought he seemed Jack Sparrowish; great reference.

after the HBO's Daario, this is perfection!

great job!
AneRainey's avatar
I'm sorry, but... It looks like a mix of Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swann. Because it remembers me... Keira Knightley to! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA And yeah, Daario style makes me remember of Sparrow.

He also had a moustache (described as "moustachios", actually) and it was dyed yellow. I think it's fortunate that you forgot that detail, he looks more palatable like this. It probably helps that you used Jack Sparrow as a reference :) Ugh, his addition to the cast made me like Dany even less, if that was even possible. But good job, I like this!
denkata5698's avatar
you can zoom in and see that i did the moustache but it's similar color to the skin and that's why its not very visible
BlackAlis's avatar
Huh yes, I noticed it now that you've pointed it out. He doesn't look as goofy as my mental picture of him like this.
