FanArt Contest: Battle At Sea

Every Friday a new piece of artwork from the fanart contest will be posted on this website!

Winner: Nick Miles — This one may be the Battle of the Nile in the Temeraire universe! Possibly from Jane Roland’s perspective, and of course Will Laurence is a lieutenant aboard Goliath at the time…

Each of these weekly pieces of art will be a part of a small, Subterranean Press hardcover with a 16-page full color gallery, and it will include a total of 32 pieces, with about 20,000 words total of new fiction included. I will probably end up combining and writing slightly longer stories for more than one piece, but each one will at least get a drabble’s-worth to its name!

Sub Press will produce a limited edition of 400 leatherbound copies signed by me (probably around $45), and somewhere between 1000-2000 hardcovers (around $20-25). And I will eventually be putting up the stories themselves online at least once the book sells out, so if these are out of your range, do not fear! You will get to read the stories! The book should hopefully be out before the end of this year, but we’ll see.

Until next week!

Oh wow! I don’t suppose Mr. Miles would be so kind as to provide a high-res version I could use as my laptop wallpaper? I want to look at this all day!

It can’t be the Battle of the Nile, the dragon on the left has the features of a Celestial and it looks like is getting ready for a Divine Wind attack.

I am pretty sure Naomi knows that ;)

But many pictures from the contest (from what I have seen so far) are 100% canon accurate. So some artistic license have to be taken.

That is a stunning piece of work. Vibrant colors bring out the essence of the subject. Mr. Miles has created a cover worthy of Temeraire.
