Drogon by christopherburdett Drogon by christopherburdett
Drogon
Fantasy Flight Games
A Game of Thrones: Queen of Dragons
Digital

2011 Fantasy Flight Games

I produced three dragons for the Queen of Dragons expansion. This was my first opportunity to work on the AGoT property and I had a blast working on these winged serpents.

A special thanks going out to :iconkasumichan2003: for featuring this piece as a DD! Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!

And to you all for stopping by and commenting, watching and for all the favs... you humble me with your interest in my work. All the best to you all!

If you would like more information regarding this piece and a look at the drawing that was used for this dragon and the two others of the series you can find it over on my blog, HERE: [link] and HERE: [link]

AND I have added a special new blog post that shows the steps in the process of creating this image: [link]

Drogon by ~christopherburdett shows exceptional use of colour to create the perfect atmosphere. The fire effects and the dragon's skin are superb. ( Featured by alexandrasalas )

I just read a certain chapter in ADWD and thought I'd type Drogon in the search bar. This was one of the many results, and your illustration is by far my favorite. It is severely bad ass, nice work.

Many thanks! I did this and the other two dragons for the Game of Thrones card game. I heard through the client that George R R Martin really liked how they all turned out too. Which is very nice! :)

I love this. I play this card on my husband all the time. Drives him bonkers ;) Nice to see a large version of it in all its glory! If it were a physical piece I'd be trying to buy it off you :D So many lovely memories of stomping people. By the way, I love, LOVE the feeling of texture in the flames. For a digital piece it feels very non-digital and that's a great thing.

That's the best artwork of drogon I ever saw. But I love the other two of the series as well. Beside being fantastic illustrations for GoT, all three are fantastic dragons designs as well.

They're all really fantastic. But (caution: bad joke) have you ever considered writing to the author of GoT? To tell him, that they are not dragons, but wyverns :D (Yep, read through some comments).

Tried and true words of advice: work very hard for a very long time. Find out what you want to do, figure out what companies do that type of work and work very hard to produce work at that level or better. It takes a long time and it is hard work. But you need to have goals and need to stay focused at always pushing yourself to the next level.
