I remember walking into my local bookstore a few years back and randomly picking up Temeraire and thinking I'd give it a go. Turns out that these books are totally awesome!
I found out about the Temeraire art Contest a day before it was due to close, so I threw everything to the side and painted this...nearly killed me
For the limited time I had i'm pleased with how it turned out. Might have to go back and do another Temeraire piece at some point and maybe give myself a little more time to do it!
