How To Train Your Dragon

I promise to keep fanart and copywritten content to an absolute minimum here, but I will admit, I have also been bitten by the Dragon bug.

This is a serious condition, as I've been reading up on it and seeing it plastered all over blogs, Facebook and Deviant Art.  Non-stop Fanart of Dreamwork's "How To Train Your Dragon."

But I understand now.

That movie was incredible.  I no longer resent that I may eventually turn to 3-D animation, because this movie showed me what I needed to see.  I felt like a kid again; I have returned over and over to the theater to see this movie.  Purchased the soundtrack, went to McDonalds for a Toothless toy.

Best movie I have seen in years.  My favorite 3-D movie so far, and I think that's saying a lot.

So here, before I ramble too much...

Toothless.  The show stopper, the cutest thing I have ever seen.

And I Viking'd myself heavily influencing the drawing based on artist Nicolas Marlet's individual style.

He is a huge inspiration.  And I'd love to draw like this more.

T-Square is my sword, Animation Disk is my shield.  I thought it was cute and creative.
I guess that's all for now.   Seen the movie three times now.   That number will increase, I'm sure.

Off to animate!
