GAME OF THRONES Concept Art Reveals A Very Different Look For The Villainous Night King

A new book is coming out that'll explore "The Art of Game of Thrones," and one piece, in particular, reveals a shocking - and terrifying - alternate look for the villainous Night King. Check it out here...

Vanity Fair has shared some pieces from The Art of Game of Thrones, a new book which sheds some light on how different the Night King could have looked in the HBO series, among other things. 

Prosthetics designer Barrie Gower has explained this alternate look for the fearsome villain (which you can see below), and this take is a little more ancient looking than the icey demon that menaced Jon Snow and company on the show. Oh, and if that doesn't make him look creepy enough, he also has a crown embedded directly into his skull.

"He would be the leader of the White Walkers, the original White Walker, so we needed him to have a sense of power," Gower shares. "We talked about creating a crown that could be fused into his head, something organic, that felt very much a part of him. As the White Walkers have a very icy and cold palette, it made sense to explore sharp and angular forms, with a translucent quality to help sell the subzero temperature of his flesh."

Set for release today, The Art of Game of Thrones features lots of artwork from the show, but this piece definitely stands out as showing something vastly different to what ended up on TV. 

Do you guys think this version of the Night King would have been better?
