Thank you so much! I'd never done Temeraire art before, so I'm really glad the charcters rang true to you :D

Oh, wow, I love how real and physical Lawrence looks in such a small space. And Temeraire looks very majestic. ♥

Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun drawing Temeraire, fictional creatures have the liberty of not needing to match some kind of exact anatomy, makes it very freeing :D

Oooooh, completely and totally anonymous *cough*Mystery*cough* Artist, this is fantastic!

I love the shadows in the water, and the sense of scale that Laurence gives Temeraire, and how comfortable he looks just resting against his neck, and the coral reef and, and! Wonderful job!

Haha, yeah, I figured people who see my work regularly would not really have any trouble recognizing who did this one XD I'm glad you liked it!

Fantastic! I love the detail on Temeraire and Laurence, and the peacefulness of the composition. Not to mention the gorgeous crisp coloring. :D

Thank you so much! The composition was interesting to do with trying to make Temeraire huge, but not too imposing in the frame to destroy the quietness. I'm glad it worked for you!

Very nice. Very bright and solid and I love the scale texture. And also awwwww <3

Thank you so much! I cheated a little bit on the scale texture, got some help with the photoshop mosaic filter and then fiddled around with it to fit, but I'm glad you liked the way it all turned out :)

How peaceful they look. I love their respective poses, with Lawrence comfortably reading and Temeraire drifting along and enjoying the scenery. Temeraire himself looks great and I really like his expression. Such gorgeous colours in the sea and sky.

This is gorgeous! I love that Temeraire looks simultaneously peaceful and kind of protective of Laurence. I am also in love with the clouds--fluffy awesomeness!

Thank you so much! Temeraire's protectiveness was something I always really liked in the books, I'm glad I could get that through here :)

Re: Wow.
Thank you so much for the lovely comment! I didn't have Temeraire in my list of fandoms I would draw, but then I saw your prompt and I couldn't get this idea out of my head. I'm really glad you liked the way it turned out :)

Temeraire art, eee! What a calm and lovingly tranquil composition this is, and I can't stop marveling at how wonderful the coloring looks-- the smooth shading, the way you use light (how it hits off Temeraire's scales!) and the clarity and depth of the water. The tiny little waves and ripples in it! Or the bright sky with its gorgeous clouds. The splash of color from the coral peeking out is another lovely eyecatcher~~ /adoration

*EYES* of *HEARTS* I...still have not even tried to read these books, but my scrolldown reaction on my tiny computer that does not show me whole picture at once was like:

OH TEMERAIRE I BET THIS ONE IS AWESOME

OH CHECK THAT AWESOME DRAGON FACE I WAS RIGHT IT IS BADAS--OH EM GEE HEARTEYES SO MANY SO MANY HEARTEYES SO CUTE SO CUTE SO CUTE.

And that is how it is.
