A recent work from the 2015 Calendar for A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin.  An immense pleasure to to work on the twelve images for this set.  Forging the Iron Throne was recently exhibit to great acceptance at IlluxCon, an art convention here in the East Coast of America.  I thought i would share it here with you all now!

It's "Balerion the dread" , the dragon that was mounted by Aegon the Conqueror

He is the one, who is heating up the blades with his fire so that they can be forged together

I just saw this among the ARC Salon's winners and I wondered if it would be yours... and it is. Damn, your works are amazing.
Congrats for the price, btw.

 плоть и кровь личной и коллективной мысле- понятийной-целеведущей деятельности разносят до нас нарастающий гул резонирующих освобождающихся форм чуткой материи, облизывающая своими мечами твои глаза.. поклоняюсь!

I might have an idea if they refused or rested when forging the throne, no doubt that dragon is Balerion the dread

Somehow I believed this would be a calendar of half-naked men hard at work or war around Westeros, and somehow my card instantly appeared in my hand. Apparently it isn't, oops... :D I might still buy it anyway, this image is gorgeous, as well as your style.

Fantastic work. Somehow reminded me of "The Forge of Vulcan" by Diego Velázquez.
