How to Train your Dragon cofcof AAANYWAY! I read "Uprooted" by Naomi Novik, and enjoyed it inmensely. It was, to me, a masterpiece, full of action, a great mix of folktales with fresh tropes, and the heroine was so cool! So I wanted to thank the author doing a fanart of these two, Sarkan (The Dragon) and Agnieszka, as I imagined them. The setting was somehow Polish, so I got inspired in their fashion. (Yes, it took me two thirds of the book to realize that Polnya and Rosya were ways of saying Polonia and Russia. I'm dense, very dense).

I hope you like them!

I literally just finished reading this, as in put it in it's own little spot in one of my own numerous book shelves for next time bout ten minutes ago. It was wonderful, and you've captured both of them excellently. I also thought there were some routes in Polish so i'm glad someone else spotted it (and I also had to have the similarities of names pointed out to me, embarrassingly by my POLISH partner...though it shows how immersive the story was I guess!).

Me lo estaba releyendo y me encuentro tu dibujo, absolutamente genial :) Si te sirve de consuelo yo tampoco pillé lo de Rosya y Polnya, y en mi caso es lamentable porque hice estudios en letras eslavas xDDD

¡Aaaah deshonra sobre nuestra vaca!
Ostras, eso de las letras eslavas tiene que molar mucho.

Re-reading it right now! The book really didn't get enough credit. You did a wonderful job capturing them and their relationship!

Right?! It was such an amazing book. So many things happened, and yet it didn't get dense. Also, the fairytale elements were so cool.
Thank you so much!
