Corvus Corax Trioculi (Game of Thrones Main Title)

THE DANCE OF DRAGONS for the Game of Thrones: Season 5 blu-ray Last year I had the opportunity to work on an animated featurette for Game of Thrones! The Dance of Dragons is a 20 minutes animation based on G.R.R. Martin’s novella The Princess and the Queen, which takes place 200 years before the events in Game of Thrones. It tells the story of the struggle in which Targaryen turned against Targaryen, resulting in civil war and destroying most of their dragons in the process. In addition to being in the blu-ray, it was shown at a few events in the run-up to the season 6 premiere. Pretty much a dream project, thanks to the people at Buddha Jones + LAssociates - particularly the producer Adam Vadnais. (Tumblr // Twitter // Instagram) (Just a note: I was in charge of drawing the characters + dragons; the colours and background were handled by other people for the finished product. So it looks fairly different to these frames.)
