A new painting Inspired by recent beautiful sunsets. I directed my eye to George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire for the setting with the city of Meereen in the background.

The colors are so pretty I kinda wish the dragon wasn't in there lol.
It's just a beautiful scenery without that ugly (that is not to say you drew it bad, it's just an unpleasant sight in general)

The sunset is absolutely gorgeous; the use of purples, magenta's and blue hues is mesmerizing and I love how you handled the translucency of Drogon's wings. Also, really cool to see the Smaug pencil drawing fully fleshed out as an oil painting here :)

Thanks!  The Smaug drawing was actually a derivative of this painting.  I created the dragon independent of the background, and then decided to finish up the drawing later since I loved the pose so much but wanted to have some fun in a different direction!

Aha! Thanks for the quick sneak-peek behind the curtains :D And I'll definitely agree it's a great pose.

I can't quite tell -- is that thing that Drogon's clutching a dolphin or a shark?

So excellent! Gotta love the mother of dragons, and her dragons of course. Really great sunset and clouds. I was just saying the other day how I really want to figure out clouds better, especially at sunset. Really nice work, Donato.
