You've done a great job of capturing the sheer majesty (haha, no pun intended) of Temeraire and the scale and I just....I love this. Keep it up~

It's listed in the desc, but the first book is called His Majesty's Dragon. It's a really splendid series!

Nice work ! love the pencil's traces and the effect of translucence you give to the right wing with the light. And the head of Temeraire... details are beautyful and it's look is quite lively.
Love this representation of Temeraire !

Very cool. I like how he has a kind of Eastern look to him, it's appropriate, seeing as he's from China. This should have been the cover of the book.

I disagree. The whiskers seem right as do the wings seeing as they change color toward the ends and become a bit translucent. The ruff at the top to the head seems spot on too, the only real difference might be the horns.

Lmao okay so I see this and I think to myself "This looks kick ass, I'm gonna look this series up."

I'm then on tumblr and suddenly something in the back of my mind tells me this is familiar somehow. I'm diving for a book under my bed that my friend leant me two days ago and I hadn't thought twice about it :XD:

Thank you Sandara, I'm so gonna read this book now!

I also wish I could draw as amazingly as this. Your dragons are so incredible~
