FINISHED !!!!! Daenerys Targaryen from HBO's Game of Thrones played by Emilia Clarke. This was drawn from a reference photo and embellished a bit! I don't like to stick too close to the reference pic because my goal IS NOT to reproduce a photo but rather create what is CLEARLY an illustration. If I wanted to reproduce a photo, it's a lot easier to stick it in a copier and hit "print". My goal is also "NOT" photo realism...If this looks like a photo to you, then I have failed my goal. I wanted this to instantly be recognized as a pencil drawing.
Anyway, I hope you like this.

I love the "ribbony" effect you utilized in this drawing, as well as your one of Stevie Nicks. Photo realism, I think, is a valid approach, but I totally appreciate your goal with this piece and you certainly reached it. I can tell it is a drawing, but I can also tell precisely who the subject is. There is no room for confusion there. <3

Just started watching Game of Thrones, and when I saw this beauty on screen I quickly remembered that you did a drawing of her ^^
You captured her likeness spot on ^^

Thank You Zindy!!!!!  It's nice to know you still stop buy to look into my gallery!  I just do not get the traffic I used to get years ago...I wish I knew why.  There was a time when I would get over 100 comments on the same day I uploaded a drawing!  I think maybe many people have moved to FaceBook or something, or my worse fear is that Pencil Illustrations are falling out of favor.

I think it's Facebook, nothing to do with you.
I often see people writing they have left Deviantart. Facebook unites so many these days, with people being so busy all the time it's just easier to connect through one place.
I had a long time where I didn't really used Deviatart much, I still don't to be honest. Yours just caught my eye in the Deviations and it had been a while since I saw your work :)
I don't think it's anything personal, things have dropped for me as well, unless people don't like both you and I's work ;) It's just that people aren't here the way they used to.
