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.

If even a mammoth wouldn't satisfy Balerion, I wonder what could he have eaten. Whales perhaps? :P

Armies of course! I mean, he was the main proponent behind the conquering of Westeros. Balerion was hungry! Then due to his reptilian persuasion, he could lay around for 10 years without eating.

Still not as big as described in the books, because he doesn't seem to be able to literally ''swallow a mammoth whole'' but the sheer size and intimidating effect it has simply makes it an incredible drawing and my overall favourite Balerion piece.

If we assume GOT mammoths are the same as the real mammoths, Balerion has to have a throat slightly more than 4m (13ft) in diameter to swallow a mammoth. I think that's covered here. :P

Hey, thanks so much! Well, his head is pretty elevated compared to the horse as well, so if you account for distance, I think its pretty well possible! We're not talking mumakil sized mammoths are we? lol
