Daenerys Targaryen by AerisGainsley Daenerys Targaryen by AerisGainsley
I really love the show Game of Thrones, and I think Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is really beautiful. So I had to draw her, plus she is one of my favorite characters. Next I'll have to draw Jon Snow. There is actually so many awesome characters on that show its hard to pick a favorite.

I spent a really long time working on this, it took me awhile to get her right. :)

everything was drawn with Photoshop CS5

hope you like it ^^

Looks like an oil painting. I like the emotion in that painting. How did you do so many ornaments?!

Thank you so much, it kept reminding me of an oil painting also :)

I had fun working on all the ornaments. The shoulder ornament was probably the most fun to work on, I drew it once. Then copied it and flipped it, then had to adjust and fix it up to fit the angle of her shoulder. Then the necklace was pretty hard to draw, it didn't come out like I wanted but I was satisfied with it lol

This is a very nice trick! I have trouble drawing ornaments. I don't know how to - basically - do them. Do you have a source of inspiration?

for this picture I had a reference for it, here is the [link]

the necklace was really hard for me to draw for some reason, I didn't really do the ornaments justice lol they are much better in the reference picture. :)

Wow, I can really see that you spent a long time working on it. The colours and detail are fantastic - I particularly love the highlights on her lips for some reason. And the colours of the hair are awesome!

I'd love to see a tutorial sometime on how you do hair. This is lovely.

Thank you so much. I was trying different techniques this time with her hair, and I ended up using the round blunt medium stiff brush or the 8th brush on my photoshop. I used it both to draw the hair in and I also used it with the mixer brush tool to smooth it out. Then I drew in a lot of individual strands and added highlights and shadows. I don't know if that helps :)

Do you take commissions? Your art is uniquely beautiful.

Thank you so much for the kind words, and I would be honored to do a commission for you. Just have to send me a note with what your interested in having me draw and then we can take it from there. :)

Okay. I'll have to think of which character I want you to draw.... what are your prices?

It really depends on what you are interested in having me draw, for example for a standard portrait I would ask for $45. Just send me a note if you are still interested and let me know what you have in mind, and hopefully we can work something out :) ^^
