Evening Flight : Golden Age - Temeraire by Chromamancer Evening Flight : Golden Age - Temeraire by Chromamancer

Since that compilation has been announced, and I definitely enjoy the Temeraire series, I decided to make some improvements to an older piece. chromamancer.deviantart.com/ar…
I've tried to keep the tone and idea of the original, but with a better sense of space and lighting. Overall, I'm rather pleased with the upgrade.

Hopefully, you enjoy it, as well.

I know this one seemed familiar. Great work on the environment and lightning (although that abrupt transition on the path, from well-lit to dark (where the wall ends) seems a bit abrubt).

Keep up with great work!

They're both glorious, but I do prefer all the added flora in this one and the improved textures certainly helped. They're almost two different seasons, summer and winter. Hope she does switch it. This one does have a more a WOW factor to it.

Very nice!  I thought when I opened it, "isn't this an old piece?" and even checked your copyright date to see if it was just updated xD  So you did quite well at reproducing the feel and theme of the first one! The rendering of the landscape definitely shows your artistic growth though! :D

Wow...
Really shows how your style has evolved and how far you've come, especially if you put the pieces side by side. Background, scenery, shading, anatomy, ... Everythign has improved.
Did Temeraire shrink or did Laurence grow? :D

This bookseries is fantastic! :love: I so wish it would have been turned into a live action film or short series. It would make quite some money, I;m sure =P

I remember the older piece. You indeed improved :3

You've definitely become my favorite dragon illustrator on DA!

So one of the stories is "Volly gets a cow"? I'll buy two.
