Balerion the Black Dread by LindseyBurcar Balerion the Black Dread by LindseyBurcar
LOOK and LISTEN: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfWLBh…

Here is my take on Balerion the Black Dread, dragon of Aegon the Conqueror, set in a time period many years before the events seen in the widely acclaimed book and HBO series "A Song of Ice and Fire", or "Game of Thrones". The largest of dragons, it is said that Balerion could swallow a mammoth whole. When he flew, whole villages were clouded in darkness below him. Although Aegon isn't pictured here, I imagine this as a time shortly before the events of the Field of Fire.

My favourite version of Balerion. Looks just how i imagined him. I love how the head is more crocodile-like than the rest of the drawings I've seen.

Hello,

Am interested in the largest of dragons art, a package with 7 different images of a GIGANTIC DRAGON

i) SIX COLORED IMAGES: Head - 1 from front and 1 from sides,
full body - 1 from both sides, 1 - flying and 1 when sitting;

ii) ONE VECTOR: Head, as viewed from the right side of the dragon -
to be used as my personal logo. How much will that be?

NB: The resolution should be at least 4000 x 4000, and the colors should be vivid not fancy ones, and should reflect true dragon colors. (Notice to the public: No pirated software may be used as it is illegal.)

This is exactly how I pictured Balerion when I read about him. 

Nevermind covering villages in darkness! Something this big... the downward wind pressure generated from his wings, especially during take off, would pin grown men to the ground and probably blow most flimsy villages away.

One of my favourite drawings of Balerion. Wish you'd do one where Balerion is flying over a town spewing fire or the like.

Holy...

Drogon has big "shoes" to fill, doesn't he.

Imo, the armies of the Westerlands and the Reach were miraculously lucky that they lost only 4,000 men to the flames of all three dragons at the Field of Fire. Aegon wanted them subjugated, not exterminated.

If the Conqueror REALLY had wanted his enemies dead, Balerion alone would have probably killed ten times that many. Imagine this monster breathing fire, jeez.

All of a sudden, Torrhen Stark's decision to yield instead of fight seems much more reasonable than craven, doesn't it?

They're basically the nukes of Westeros. Who the hell wants to get nuked?

Agreed! Honestly, yeah I don't blame a soul who didn't want to face that in battle. The futility of it lends more credibility to Torrhen than cowardice, I think; the fact that there are still Starks around proves that well enough. Gardeners on the other hand..

Speaking of rational people in the North, coincidence that there was no King-Beyond-The-Wall while the Targaryens' Dragons ruled the skies of Westeros? XD
