    Your drawings are amazing! I really like the ones of Temeraire and his friends. I read all the books about him and can’t wait for the one due in March. BTW: I am a 60 year old grandmother.
    AND I love Temeraire!

    Hi Belinda, thank you kindly! I have a lot more of the Temeraire inspired pieces coming up, when my schedule frees up a bit. I’m a huge fan of Naomi Novik’s brilliant series as well. They are so inspiring, right? I’m eagerly awaiting Crucible of Gold as well :)

    Man I love these, all of em.. on a note though i thought Regal Coppers were supposed to have horns (although i like the way you have portrayed maxi) and While Temeraire is big Shouldnt maximus seem visually bigger then him, he just seems mass wise bigger.. But again I of course have nowhere near the talent you have just felt like bringing it up ^.^ Thank you for having these and i look forward to hopefully seeing more

    Thanks much! And yes – Regals do indeed have horns – 4 for males at their full growth or thereabouts by the novels – If you look closely, Maximus has 4 horns, I just made them growing back off his spinal column. As to his size – he is actually further back than Temeraire. In the digitally-reworked version (which I will update soon), you can see it better, and his size is indeed larger both in mass and a full person taller in hieght while sitting as the novels indicate. THank again for the comment and more are indeed on the way…
