Daenerys Targaryen by Majoh Daenerys Targaryen by Majoh
Here's Daenerys Targaryen from A Song of Ice and Fire, shown with her three dragons! As I'm only halfway through the second book there's a good chance I'm missing something I haven't read yet, so you my apologies if I am.

If I've ever painted a dragon before, I don't remember it. Shame on me. I don't think I've ever even painted so much as a lizard before. These guys were tough! ...And really, really time consuming :D

Painted in Photoshop over the course of .. man, at least 25 hours. I spent forever on this!

PS: Please don't post any spoilers!

I like how she looks her book age. 
lamblyn Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I always wondered what she would look like if portrayed as her age in the books. Great job!
TheOtherDaughter Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2015

This is one of the few pics I've found she really looks her age

I'm glad that you took a different approach and made her look like how you see her and not a painting of the actress playing this awesome character. very good work!
opalegrimoire Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013
There are so much Daenerys fanarts...but yours is original, you draw the character with your style and I think it's very cool ! Very beautiful

Rhaegar I insist.

love it
3headedpuppy Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
i love this for many reasons, including making her the right age, it is really amazing!
mrsmyrnin Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i like this because you kept her at the right age!! i know in the actual series they couldnt have a 13 year old.. because of what happens... but it's nice to see a generally accurate picture! XD love it!

Oh my god this is amazing! You seriously have talent! This is how Daenerys in the books would look, not the HBO version :D
Nosonart Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Totally agree with you. But i guess you know why the HBO version had to be a grown up.. lol.
Entraya Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Looks great. I think you should have made a joint halfway thru the fingers of the wings. The wings are like overgrown fingers with a membrane between
mrsmyrnin Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i agree although then i can't draw dragons but i do love them :D ^^
Entraya Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Erryone just luvs dragons. I think its the most popular fictional creature. I find that batwing anatomy, and lizard bodies and horseshaped faces fits. It annoys me in games like Skyrim that they seem to unablet to fly, with ugly wings, and being way to heavy. Meaning that big wings + slim bodies is the way to go
mrsmyrnin Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah i hate disproportionate dragons especially when the animator thinks its feasible that a fat dragon with small wings can fly i love Saphira from Eragon, she's one of my favourite dragons :D and yeah i think possibly theyre a favourite but possibly unicorns are number 1 (apparantly theyre cute) ^^
Entraya Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I prefer old style violent unicorns.
mrsmyrnin Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes they are pretty awesome!
Entraya Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Violent impaling fuckers :D
mrsmyrnin Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah XD

i thought the black one was the biggest one

This is so beautiful! You've captured Dany and the dragons perfectly. I adore the colours and patterns on the dragons.
foxspectra Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
I could identify it by the description of the book, not the show. Congratulations on the wonderful work
Raulboy Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ditto... Stupid HBO and their dragons that are more wyvern than dragon...
foxspectra Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
I want to see how they will make them grow.
diligo-ut-vos-mos Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2011
This is so pretty. Your dragons are beautiful, so majestic even as they are small. I also really love Dany's dress.
DaernerysTargaryen Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011
It's amazing. this is how i pictured her dragons
PonyBank18 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011
Your coloring is lovely.
Anjasa Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011  Professional Writer
This is so beautiful!
Top-Dog1 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2011
I like your picture. I think the dragons look beautiful. I wanted to ask you a question about the book though.

Does Daenerys Targaryen keep all here dragons or do she gives some of the away for favors and stuff? Because i read a preview of one of the book and it kinda seemed like she gave the Golden dragon to someone.
SamusX10 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011
Gorgeous stuff. :)
AnnellIvanov Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
I've just started with the series, and Daenerys is my fav character! So cute as well as strong <3
alcanis-ivennil Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
Awww... they're beautiful!

Somewhere, ASOIAF/Temeraire crossover msut exist!
Kaori-Chan93 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011
Love it! I love Daenerys. She and Arya are the only female characters of the show (at this moment) that I like. Good job!!!
strawberrybabygirl Featured By Owner May 29, 2011  Student General Artist
I'm glad you made her look relatively childlike...It's easy to forget while reading that she really is only in her low teens
Kith-Koby Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2011
Interesting. It looks simple, understated compared to your other works of Daenerys, yet the more you look at it, the more you realize how much delicate detail and color has gone into this.
NickoMoknu272 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011
It loks like something :iconironshod: would do :)
arysani Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2011
Beautiful - Dany and her babies both. Thanks for sharing!
