//This is one of my favorite scenes ever, because they made these two act like an actual couple, without forcing the romance. These dorks are really just goofing around even when the subject is something serious and this is so natural I could even say they’re just real people instead of animated fictional characters.
#they’re so much more similar than they realise
Late night/early morning sketching…. I can definitely see Hiccup’s potential as a future Hot Dad
I’ve noticed how Hiccup draws, and does most other things, primarily with his left hand, but when we see him in the dragon ring holding an axe, it is most often with his right hand; this leads me to believe that he is actually left-handed, but being made to use his right hand as was often the case in history, because it was considered the, well, right hand to use. This would also explain why he has trouble lifting, handling and throwing weapons, since he is not “allowed” to use his dominant hand to do it.
I managed to find a HTTYD 2 teaser in a very high 1080p quality. :) So now you can see Hiccup in even more details.
THEY SERIOUSLY NEED TO DARKEN HIS FRECKLES BUT
HE’S GOT SOME BEARD GROWIN’ IN!
Well. He certainly grew up, didn’t he Merida. Merida?
I DIDNT KNOW THIS NEEDED TO HAPPEN UNTIL THIS VERY SECOND BUT NOW ITS ALL I WANT IN LIFE
Casual kiddos?? / sorry I can’t fashion orz
I’m pretty glad my friend introduced me to this big 4 au
‘cause frIK I adore these characters and the idea was pretty interesting and I really needed something to pull me out of this art funk I’ve been suffering through
How to Train Your Dragon 2 - First Look
An animated sequel that drastically ages its main characters? UM, YES PLEASE. Design cleverness perfection!!
I heard somewhere that it’d be set five years later, don’t know if that’s still true or not but I sure hope so! Because in the first one, the artbook states somewhere that they’re roughly seventeen. So yes, twenty year old main characters would be AMAAAZZING~~~~
Jack meets Merida
the person who made this is blatantly not scottish
As an actual Scottish person, I concur pffff
This is a nod to Misfits!
Ahhhh! You’re riiigght! It is Misfits dialog!!
I think he would be a wonderful person. As for me… I would be a small dragon.
Merida the Viking and now Prince Hiccup. I’ve got ideas in mind for this au but I’m no writer so it likely will never be written into a full-fledged story.
So enjoy some random fanart of them having life-swaps.
The film was originally intended to end with Hiccup largely unscathed after the climactic battle. However, the directors decided that it would not feel believable that the heroes could defeat such a formidable foe like the Red Death Dragon without great cost. With that in mind, they decided to have the boy lose part of his left leg at the end of the battle in a deliberate parallel to how Toothless the Dragon lost his left tail fin earlier in the film. Whatever concerns about how parents would react to the hero of a family film being so maimed were settled in the film’s test screenings. Parents in the audience told the producers on their own accord that they approved of that story development and requested that it be kept in the final edit. In addition, the original book’s author, Cressida Cowell, praised this ending and considered it true to the spirit of her book. Furthermore, the scene originally had Hiccup alone as he comes to grips with his wound. However, when Steven Spielberg saw the original footage, he felt that Hiccup and Toothless’ interaction in the film’s final act had been reduced to something like a mere cowboy and his horse. So, he suggested that Toothless be with the boy in that particular scene so as to reinforce the idea that their companionship was far deeper than that.
