Temeraire's black by PaintedKelpie Temeraire's black by PaintedKelpie
:)

Temeraire belongs to author Naomi Novik,
art belongs to me. I feel like I've created a Temeraire meme with this pose....;)

That's fucking amazing! Though I don't recall the mentioning the 'mustache' tendrils - though they appear in many Asian dragon motifs, and are not out of place here.

I don't suppose you'd take a commission? :)

OoooOOOoooh! You did a good job with Temeraire! He looks impressive. I wonder what he might be doing...perhaps doing some calculations or pondering on something new Laurence read to him...

This sculpture's well worth the DD in my opinion. ^^
