Temeraire by Kooskia Temeraire by Kooskia
(c) Naomi Novik (Temerarie character)
(c) Kooskia (art)

I've tried to draw Temeraire the dragon co-protagonist of the book series with the same name ^^
I've read the first books and i really like them as the Temeraire character, i know that this art probably not fits with the traditional images and i'm sorry if there are some errors..
However hope you like it ^^:
(If someone don't know the series.. it's a parallel world with dragons in our reality, and the series is set during the Napoleonic War.

I feared that it was really anti-Napoleonic .. however it's seems from "one side", but not too much hard.

I say that because my country (Italy) is one of the few (with Poland for what i remember) to be keep a good opinion of Napoleon.
Joachim Murat (Marshal and Grand Admiral of France) was a famous Cavalry commander related to Napoleon and was welcomed in South Italy as King of Naples and was considered benevolent. Despite that in North Italy Napoleon was considered at first the hero that defeated the Austria, but then there were some discontent and riots too against his officials.

PLEASE IF YOU FAVE IT, COMMENT IT ; )

thanks, criticism is fine ^^ for my art's style and ability i had to make it more simple x3 and for the head/muzzle/eyes.. i follow a bit a stylyzed and simple design, that's why is not anatomically correct ^^

Yeah, the opinion's gonna vary from country to country. Not surprising people feared him though; just look how much the borders changed during the Napoleonic Wars! [link]

It's a shame they didn't let the Duchy Of Warsaw remain after the wars, poor Poland had been completely dissolved by its neighbours!

Now that i remember Danish too were strong allied of Napoleon if i'm correct <.<
So there are at least 4 poeple that may a bit supportive of him XD (France obviously, then Poland,Italy and Danish)
However as i said.. from the point of view of my country he did both well and wrong.. however if i was born at the time i would surely join an italian volunteer company for the l'Armè de l'aire on a Fleur-de-nuit to fight the Austrian Empire V.V

Hmm. Fleur-de-nuit is a good breed, but I would choose the Jade Dragon. They are cheap because "made in China", and are small enough to keep them at home and drink vodka with them.
P.S. Sorry for the necropost. =)=)=)
