    Game of Thrones "Warriors of the Arena" Daario Naharis Concept Drawing (HBO, 2011). Sellsword and pit-fighter Daario Naharis reviews a list of "Warriors of the Arena" in this original concept drawing from HBO's Game of Thrones. This self-admitted low-born character rose to the rank trusted adviser to the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen as well as becoming her lover. Presented is an original concept drawing of this fan favorite character reviewing a list of arena heroes that includes the names of such notable warriors as Geronimo, Hagar the Horrible, Kirk Douglas, and many others. The beautifully detailed graphite rendering on 16.5" x 11.75" Bristol board is the work of concept and storyboard artist William Simpson and bears his initials in the lower right corner. This is an original one-of-a-kind masterpiece used in the early development of the televised adaptation of George R. R. Martin's fantasy book series. Mr. Simpson got his start illustrating for comics such as Batman, Judge Dredd and Indiana Jones, moving on to illustrating for numerous live-action films. As an added bonus, a preliminary concept sketch of one of the statues in the Crypt of Winterfell is on the reverse of this drawing. The piece shows handling and edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good. COA from Heritage Auctions.
