That's pretty awesome. Though one nitpick I had with that series (I just finished book 6) is that the scale of the dragons seems so outrageously large, particularly the heavyweights like Temeraire, Maximus and Requiescat. Less so the mid or lightweights. The heavies seem almost pre-humans huge, back when animals were larger because it was warmer and the climate was different. Or maybe it's just that it's tough to truly capture their immense scale in any visual form. Even so, you've done an amazing job.

omggggg I just finished reading these books and AAHHHHHHH they are so amazing!! Now I want to draw dragons all day, but of course first I had to go look at your art for this series again now that I've read it and can appreciate the characters. C:

Love your take on Maximus and Temeraire! Now I gotta see if you've got any pictures of Lily...

I love the composition and mood of this piece. Your shading makes the fight more intense and dramatic. It feels like you snapshot-ed a moment in the novel.
