Your pit dragon fanart is the best I've found for the series so far. Keep up the great work!

With that splotch, she reminds me of Sssasha. :)

So you've read the books, too I guess?

I'm midway through the last one right now. Can't wait to see how it ends, though I wish she had done better describing Heart's Blood's children. I don't even know what color they are, just that Sssasha has that yellow streak which would have made her a cull rather than a beauty dragon. She did a better job of describing Libertas and Mighty Mo, and they each only get a few lines about hem.

Yes, you're right. Sometimes the books lack in descriptions. But otherwise when I open one of the books and start reading I've got always the feeling that I can step through a door into this strange and beautiful world Jane Yolen has created. However, she did a great job and I love these books. :3 They're so inspiring.
Btw: Do you mean with "last one" the third book or the fourth one?

4th one, Dragon's Heart. I just finished it last night.. and finally found out what color Sssargon is, but the base colors of his sisters remain a mystery.

I agree that for the most part her descriptions are wonderful, but there are just a few points, like with the 5 dragons who feature so prominently in the 3rd and 4th books, but have hardly any physical description, compared to once-offs like Mighty Mo who got lavishly described during the fight with poor S'Blood. I have similar problems with White Jenna and Sister Light, Sister Dark. Most of each book is very sound, but then a few scenes(not even consecutive ones) lack in detail, like there was another author or a heavy-handed editor.

I haven't read any other books by Jane Yolen, so I can't really tell you my opinion about it. Maybe it's a characteristic of her style of writing or - as you said - her editor. Or she wants to leave some gaps in her descriptions to encourage the reader imagine the dragons himself. But in the end I totally agree with you: I like detailed descriptions more, not least because I like to draw the characters :3

Yay... I saw this and instantly guessed that it must be heart's blood! Although it isn't mentioned so in your comment I guess that she must have been in your mind while drawing this ^^

I've got the idea to start a fan group for the series on dA, but I wasn't sure if I could handle it, because I'm not a native speaker and I haven't got any experiences in founding and managing groups...^^;

Have you read the fourth book? I seen that she came out with a fourth one, but I am in love with the original trilogy, and was unsure if it was worth it to read, or whether it was something she wrote out of the greed for more money. Personally I thought the third book ended really well...

Yes, I've read the forth book. It was quiet nice and I really love these books, so I won't complain about a 5th or a 6th book...:D I could recommend it, but for me, the first one is the best. ;)
