Dragon Rider by DonatoArts
Dragon Rider

Inspiration at 30,000 feet. What better way to pass time on the flight to the Spectrum Live Convention this past weekend than by creating a drawing of my new character as a pilot in the act of taking wing.

ASoIaF - Arya and the Hound - ColdHearts by DonatoArts
ASoIaF - Arya and the Hound - ColdHearts

A new drawing from the nightly activities. I can not imagine what is in store for young Arya as she suffers through scarring tragedies. Either she becomes an incredibly compassionate person, or develops into one of the cruelest rulers Westros has ever seen. I vote for the later.

2015

Created a portrait of Gandalf while waiting to return to the studio this past week. I tend to avoid depicting the Balrog for even after reading and rereading this passage for over 30 years, I still do not 'know' what a Balrog looks like, nor do I want to!
How do you depict fear?

It's funny how great artists often have so little fame on deviantart. I didn't know either, love your paintings!
