Artwork Description

This is for an upcoming Game of Thrones promo. It's three cards in one composition. That was a tricky one to put together, as there were specific requirements (one dragon on each shoulder and one to the side) and each of the three sections needed to look good on its own as well as making a good single piece. Quite an exercise in layout! Very fun, though.

Your stuff is just brilliant.
Thanks

That's a good idea! I'll get working on that soon. Thanks!!

This is a great piece, and as a fan of the game, I had a lot of fun assembling it with the cards.
You should really sell prints of this! GoT players would eat it up.

Subtle yet brilliant. I like the white dragon most.

I knew it! That "Chris" guy was playing me for a chump all along... or... WAS he...? Hmm... --- Well, anyway, thanks for the great comments, Marley, I had a lot of fun detailing the dragons (but quickly, quickly, as I only had a couple of evenings to render it).

Thanks for the nice comments, Stan. This one certainly did make my brain hurt!

Excellent image Patrick, the background alone is superb!

Excellent piece Patrick! I find the little dragons very interesting and each stands well on it's own. Very good job!

Patrick, great problem solving skill! I can appreciate the difficulty in merging 3 compositions into one. I like the way you used 3 separate arches (formed by the dragons' wings) to structure the separations. Very clever!

megaflow's picture

Thanks a lot for saying so, Meredith!

megaflow's picture

Thanks Sean! Glad you liked the lighting - it wasn't really "dramatic" but I thought it worked well with each Dragon's color.

megaflow's picture

So what you're telling me, Mark, is that you didn't like the ropes... Damn! -- Just kidding! Thanks for the nice note. Smile

megaflow's picture

Thanks, Dean! I'm glad you stopped by. Smile

Top quality Patrick, love the dragons and her hair. I like the sea, the composition and the colours too!

pageaxe's picture

That is such a cool image Patrick,almost cinematic.Great depth with waves meeting the horizon.Looked at the detailed version-wonderful job on her hair,really well done.And of coarse your great lighting just ties everything together-wicked stuff!

sdeanbloom's picture

Awesome, man! Greatr detail and comp!

megaflow's picture

Heck, Christine, I'm blushing! I've found that mastering complicated compositions is just a matter of quickly sketching as many very different ideas as I can come up with; then looking for the one(Drunk that have the best flow and convergances and trying to accentuate those qualities. Lots of quick, small thumbnails, changing as much as possible in each one, that's the trick.

megaflow's picture

Thanks a lot, Marcel! I liked doing the little fellows - in fact, I think I'll miss them now that they're done. They each had their own personality.

megaflow's picture

I'm glad you liked it, Mary. I was sort of wondering if I should put up all three details, but the original was so small (width restrictions at Epi!) that I said "what the heck". Thanks!

megaflow's picture

Thanks a lot, Christine! I'll take a "wow" any day! Wink

Art at its best.
