The visuals in Game of Thrones keep blowing us away — and now we have a glimpse of the process that's created them. Concept artist Kimberley Pope has posted dozens and dozens of her designs for seasons one and two.

Including an aerial view of King's Landing and Qarth, some very different early versions of familiar locations... and some huge spoilers for the ending of season two. (We'll put the spoilery images last, but beware!)

Here are some of the most striking images that Pope has posted. Above is an aerial view of the City-State of Qarth. Click over to her site to view the rest. [via Winter is Coming]

A gondola going to the Eyrie? Boy they reaaaally didn't want to stick to the book on this one!

Or are they just tossing it here in to make us dread what could have been, and feel better about the Eyrie we got?

(Or is it just a fancy turnip elevator?)
