Reminds a bit of what Shruikan should have been like had his original Rider been still alive and kicking. Protective and brave with a bit of the ruthlessness he would have in a battle.

THAT!.... Is a giant dragon.
I mean.... that one dragon rider on the ground is JUST LIKE a navy captain of a United states aircraft carrier.
he does not control everything about the dragon/aircraft carrier,
but he can direct its terrible power at any of his enemies!! this is epic.

Very elegant. I like the detail, and you've done a lovely job of capturing Temeraire's character in his face I think :clap:

I just finished to read the entire series and am looking forward the next release in this July.
Your illustrations are MAGNIFYING!!!
My daughter has a copy of this, you signed it and it is one of her most treasured items. She got it from C2E2 two years ago and you even signed it for her....She loves it.  Last year you did not have any of the dragons...This year, actually tomorrow, at the C2E2 she is looking for you again to see what you have.   She loves your work and how it sort of defines how she sees the dragon.....
Ahh, yes! Our treasonous duo all kitted out for a bit of the old ultraviolence. Huzzah! And well done.
