Three Dragon's Alliance by Norsehound Three Dragon's Alliance by Norsehound
To protect themselves from the predations of a strange extra-dimensional adversary, three forms of dragonkind came together to form an alliance for mutual protection and trade.

Spyro the Dragon (1998)
Dragonriders of Pern (1967)
Temeraire Saga (2004)

Made as a birthday gift for a friend. I don't think she has my DA profile, so it'll still be a surprise.

Whats wrong with Ruth's face. It looks like a toads face. You got Temeraire's face right.

It was based on one of the cover art photos from the novels.

It would probably be from Spyro's enemies, aided by Napoleon, and probably assisted by rival Holds from Pern. *shrug*

Hahaha! Very creative team-up. I don't think anyone has considered the Dragonriders of Pern with Spyro, though I'm not familiar with the other. It definitely looks like a believable cover. Nice work man!

Huge Pern fan here, so props for including Ruth and Lord Jaxom. I could see Mnementh or Ramoth being representative as well, but Ruth does seem appropriate.

I don't know anything about the Eragon universe, so they are not part of the alliance.

I've also heard uninspiring things about the series, so I don't care to visit it anytime soon.

Of course! Any fan of dragon literature should know who they are. They were the only choice to represent Pern for a thing like this.

The idea that Spyro, Ruth and Temeraire coul exist together in any universe makes me really, really happy.
Awesome perspective here, too, and what I'm really impressed with is how you managed to catch pretty much exactly what I imagined for the two book beasts. This is so cool. Instant fave.

I figured they were about the size of period navy frigates. It is described that technically dragons of Temeraire's weight class a crew of about 30 people... In that regard, my drawing might have him smaller than he should be.

I wouldn't be surprised if he could match a Pernese Gold dragon in size... and probably fighting capacity if it came down to it.

Temeraire would probably take out a good number of Pernese dragons (especlially blues and greens) until they started teleport spamming him. Or he got swarmed by bronzes. Whichever came first. :)

Norsehound Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2011
That's failing to take into account the riflemen that dragons (at least British ones) also have as part of the crew. But all of this is speculation, since the dragons are in an alliance.

One has to wonder... if Pern dragons can communicate to each other telepathically, would they be able to communicate to other genre dragons in the same way? :P Likely not since the dragons are not derived from fire-lizards, but interesting to think about.
