Daenerys Targaryen is one of the main characters from the Game of Thrones series. She also goes by the name of Khaleesi, or the mother of dragons. This tutorial is quite difficult so you better have a lot of patience. It took me 4 days to complete this drawing, I guess it would take you a bit more. I'm not going to say a lot about her since I don'twant to spoil the show for the ones who have't seen Game of Thrones yet. For those who have seen it, enjoy.

You'll work with layers. Draw the first layer with a 2B pencil,and hold the pencil underhand so that you don't use the tip of the pencil, just the side of it. Then smudge it using either a tissue or a Q-tip.

The head requires a bit more attention than the rest of the body, which is why I've left it for the last steps on the dragon. First make a light layer, smudge, then draw little circles around eyes and semi-circles on the rest of it's head. This will give the impression of a scaly skin.

The hair very easy since it's white. Make a few lines that indicate the direction in which the hair is growing, like I did in the first image. Then draw the darker areas of the hair following the guide lines. That dark thing between her neck and the dragon's chest is her tail which is the darkest part of the hair.
