FIRE AND BLOOD






In honor of the new season of GAME OF THRONES.

Much like the Mother of Dragons this painting rose from the fire too. It was narrowly a complete disaster.

When I’m finished a piece of artwork I usually spray a bit of “Krylon Matte Finish” over the painting. Naturally, I did so here, but, after lightly staying a hazy cloudy coat suddenly appeared over the painting. I thought it would go away after it dried. It didn’t. So, I sprayed a heavier coat; it got worst.

I thought it was unsalvageable. Out of desperation I sprayed some “Krylon Workable Fixatif.” It cleared up much of the haze, but unfortunately, a lot of the color pencil detail has seemed to have melted away.

However, I’m happy I saved as much as I could.

This painting is a real Targaryen, she walked out the flames unburned.

GAME OF STONES

 
“Ice age in coming,”
A bit of explanation:
I was working on a recent commission where the clients wanted a poster featuring “Flintstones-esque” characters. I worked on it while watching the latest season of “Game of Thrones;” and I thought wouldn’t it be funny to have some Flintstones characters dressed as characters from “A Song of Ice and Fire.” The idea was so funny I couldn’t resist forgetting about, and drew this up after finishing the commission.
I hope everyone as a good laugh as I did painting these things up.
