Scott C Game of Thrones Great Showdowns

Scott C. already has a couple books out with Great Showdowns pieces, featuring illustrations of some of the most iconic character match-ups in film and television done in such a charming way. And at Comic-Con he unveiled a whole slew of drawings with characters from Game of Thrones. If you’re a fan of the show and Scott C.s artwork, these are great.

Game of Thrones visual effects

It’s no secret that the visual effects of feature films are usually vastly superior to that of television. The budget for feature films is infinitely bigger, and television shows have much less time to finish visual effects in post-production since they’re on a much tighter schedule and last much longer than movies.

However, when a show becomes successful, that means more money can be spent to make it look better and better, and in the case of Game of Thrones, things have clearly improved over five seasons. A new video explores the evolution of visual effects on the HBO fantasy series, and it’s not hard to see how much better they are now.
