Very nice indeed.

Well done!!

There was one or two I could not quite place - as in locate in the story - any chance you could add two or three words below each?

Very good!

Only two minor points:



This looks a bit too... medical. Nimue in this scene is a PICA in standby mode; she hardly need any kind of old-fascioned oscilloscopes connected to her through the wirst cuffs. A bunch of wires going out of, say, shoulder connection port would looks better.



This does not look like a galley; more like some old-fascioned Viking's ship or ancient Greece trireme. Galleys of OAR time was much more modern, with larger forecastles and without underwater rams.
------------------------------

Oh well, if shortening the front is what the Germans crave,
Let's shorten it to very end - the length of Fuhrer's grave.

In a manner, it's fan art. These illustrations were never officially published as part of a printed book.

But they are created by a professional Russian artist and illustrator Sergey Zakharoff precisely as illustrations for "OAR". And at the moment he is drawing illustrations for "Schism".

Ah, I see :) they are very good
A graphic novel of Safehold would be awesome, maybe ask Runsforcelery about it?
Legal issues with fan art ..one should be respectful and honest to the author etc

I used to make 3D fan art for two Dungeons and Dragons settings I loved , Dark Sun and Spelljammer, which was fun, even got mentioned etc in offical D&D magazine :)

Not so good at sketching though, sigh, great respect for that skill!

I had a love hate relationship with Dark Sun, Ugh.

That said, I liked Spelljammer, but it never felt like you were playing D&D.

Sorry, D&D (Well, table top RPG in general) nerd here. A made in the UK game is still one of my favorites, Warhammer fantasy RP.
