Dracarys Wip 07

Time for a composition change! I tried to make it more “readable” – if that makes sense. It was becoming an unweildly huge painting and this compacted it quite nicely.

I wanted Dany’s victim to be in front of her, not behind her, and I like that now it looks as if she is actually commanding the black dragon to nuke, instead of yelling into the void (of course, there’s nothing wrong with yelling into the void). I also pulled her bloodriders closer together, and backed them away from her a bit to make less of a parade of horses and more a queen being followed by her guards.

That army in the background is going to be painful, but I like that they’ve been pulled back further from the foreground composition. Overall, I’m glad I spent the time tightening this up before going any further.
