This portrait is based on the character of Game of Thrones with a my new digital pencil color style, the colors and lines form patterns that generate textures. I have limited the colors to pink and purple to give character more personality.

Queen Daenerys I Targaryen, also known as Danny and Daenerys Stormborn, is a major character in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh seasons. She is played by starring cast member Emilia Clarke, and debuts in the series premiere.

The ideas for portraits usually come from people, artists or characters who have a strong personality and a story to tell. Those people who transformed their stories so as not to follow a horizontal line of life.

For me, all people have a story to tell, and every story is a book that must be known, because they transform the course of their lives without fear of failure. And these changes can be physical or mental, and even without seeing them we know that they happen.

I only celebrate them by creating an art that reflects their personality in a portrait.

The pink purple colors reflect the innocence of Daenerys who with his strong personality managed to transform into a main character dominating the story behind the series.

This portrait is part of a series of portraits of characters that changed the course of their lives with decisions that required a strong decision.

This picture I painted in colored pencil using an ipad with an app called ProcreateApp, for me it is the most realistic software to illustrate. It have quality of textures and pretensions in the brushes achieve a realism in its use.

I have tried many programs on Mac using a Wacom Intuos drawing tablet, but they never achieve perfection in strokes and smooth strokes in ProcreateApp tools.

This particular project has many likes in where I have posted it, good reviews and comments, I am just starting with this series of portraits with the same style, but something important I am learning with the art, do Different things are key to the professional development of an artistic life.

The background of each project has to have a huge load of study knowledge and a solid history to support each piece. Everything in life is because it has to be and will happen or not for all the background and passion that we put to our projects.

Beauty is in every particle that moves in the life, nature and life itself is an inspiration. Mostly I am an illustrator and I like to experiment with digital and organic techniques.

My work takes the root of the lives of people and transforms them into linear dynamic sketches expressing their lines with details that do not exist in real life.

Express that deconstruction of textures and shapes within a picture are a symbol of a way of seeing people from their roots and lifestyle.
