From Season 1 to Season 8, Ball captured Iron Throne contenders’ deaths in 74 illustrations, each creatively showing their fate and how they play a role in the greater Westeros power struggle.Right after each episode would end, Ball would illustrate the iconic deaths of each character. From Eddard Stark’s execution to Missandei’s beheading, Ball’s art tells a greater story beyond their fatal incidents through gloomy, yet mesmerizing images. Now, Ball is getting ready to commemorate the Mother of Dragons, also known as Daenerys Targaryen, who perished after Jon Snow stabbed her during the last episode of Game of Thrones.AdChoices广告Some of Ball’s past ‘Beautiful Death’ illustrations.

It’s going to take a while to absorb. It was a perfect Game of Thrones mix of tragedy, surprise, and trying to communicate that in an image.”Ball ended up incorporating the fiery Iron Throne with the phrase “You are my queen, now and always.” And, it’s a breathtaking creation that will stay in the memories of fans for years to come.More on‘Game of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Gives Coffee Cup Dilemma Update ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke Deeply Regrets One Season 8 ThingThis ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Predicted How the Series Would End in 2015 ‘Game of Thrones’ Director Explains Why Arya Ambushed the Night King’Game of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Predicts Sansa Stark’s Future last_img read more
