There’s just a few frames in the second gif where hiccup looks so nervous. i mean he’s just about to confront this menacing guy who could easily kill him and all he has is his words and you can see that he’s covering it up and putting on a brave face but he’s secretly scared as hell. He takes a deep breath, puts his fear behind him and gets down to business and its just wow animation.
Thank you kindly! I’m the animator who animated this moment. You hit the nail right on the head! This is Hiccup’s first time meeting Drago. In his attempt to change this “madman’s” mind, it was important to see both courage and caution in his face, as the situation was both terrifying and unpredictable (considering what’s already happened)…
Really? I was told by Simon Otto that the animators at Dreamworks were always animating the same characters to get the feeling /movement for their characters right. Or doesn’t that apply to the main characters?
Well anyway, beautiful scene! :)
You are correct! The great Simon Otto would cast us animators specific to characters they were most familiar with. I was cast mainly on Hiccup/Toothless (which is a nice role to be stuck in on this franchise), and knowing that I personally adore these characters made the experience all the more enjoyable. Simon is, and always will be, the guiding light for Toothless and all animation (for the feature films and shorts, only).
Not sure how many people are aware… but both Simon Otto and Chris Sanders created the character back in 2008 when the original “Toothless” was to be replaced with a more threatening and mysterious dragon - due in large to raising the stakes for the “film” compared to the lovable short books the films were inspired by. We still preserved the original “Toothless” in the franchise as he became known as the “Terrible Terror”. :-D
So graphic and beautiful! nice work!
So the only reasonable way I saw fit to calm my feelings about this movie was a simple solution. DRAW ALL THE DRAGONS. Guys go see HTTYD 2, hands down it was probably the best animated film I’ve seen in a while.
Oh my god this art style
his neck does the thing
attention to detail.
Cat doesn’t know what to do with the butterfly that flew on its paw.

1) I’ve always found it a very bizarre assumption that pro-lifers only care about fetuses. The Catholic Church, one of the most notorious abortion spooners, is actually one of the largest charity providers in America.
If we’re basing this on a more political level, republicans, the ones who don’t like abortion, are statistically more likely to donate to charitable organizations. (http://www.ethicsdaily.com/republican-states-give-more-to-charity-than-democratic-states-cms-19923)
2) Most of the children in Foster Care can’t be adopted because the parental rights of their biological parents haven’t been terminated yet. The parental rights need to be terminated in order for the child to be eligible for adoption. Also, most of the kids waiting to be adopted are teenagers, have severe mental or physical disabilities, want to stay in a certain area or there’s like, five siblings. (firsthand testimony from someone I’ve spoken with who tried to adopt a foster child)
3) this is some real next level stupidity. as a black bisexual, I personally laugh in the face of anyone who says anything like this.
you seem to care ooooh sooooo much about POC, but do you care that African American children in NYC are more than 50% likely to be aborted?
or, on a more basic level, what have you done to ease ANY of problems that my people are facing? or are you just offering abortion as the only solution to… homelessness? police brutality? unemployment? workplace discrimination? misrepresentation in media?you are not pro-choice, you are pro-abortion. you clearly only like to use oppressed peoples who are suffering from REAL ISSUES as props to demonstrate why everyone needs an abortion. what about everyone who needs pre-natal care? diapers? better maternity leave? antibiotics and other medication? home aid? anything other than an abortion?
DO SOMETHING USEFUL… like taking this that poster down. please and thanks. you’re not tumblr famous, honey. your post it. #prolife #lifeinfetus #profetus #antistupidpeople #abortionisillegalforstupidpeople.
