a collection of interesting and amazing things

viivus:

I’ve been experimenting with bees and gold ink! Also my scanner crapped out, which is just as well because the ink looks better photographed than scanned.

"look who made it down 4 canada day!! "

To celebrate my very first Canada Day, I’d urge you all to check out the excellent webcomic ‘Check, Please!' which taught me everything I know about hockey, bro-ship and dorm life in fictional MA towns.

Dragon 2 sketches!
Back in 2010 when the first movie came out, I was OBSESSED with their racehorse type of riding, the character design, the mechanics of the saddle, EVERYTHING. I wrote entire essays on livejournal including ‘studies’, and harassed the designer of the saddle for answers on deviantart.
I’ve always had an interest in character design and feature animation, but looking back, this movie really sparked something serious in me. Dreamworks studio seemed further away than the moon (still does) but for the first time I felt like looking in the kitchen and actually understanding what was going on. 
By then I was in the final stage of med school and didn’t entertain any serious ambitions towards design. But I remember the immense joy this movie and my new discoveries gave me, purely as a hobby.
Never in a million years would my clumsy younger self have guessed that by 2014 I’d be a full-time character designer in a city halfway across the world, sitting in a cinema in Vancouver to watch the sequel. 
In short: I owe a LOT to the people behind these films. Thank you.

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.

pixelp:

So Proud of “How to train your dragon 2” and everyone who has contributed to this amazing movie! I’m still so grateful for being brought on to the art team (T▽T). Here are some designs for a movie sequence that didn’t make it into the final film. The movie opens today so GO WATCH IT!

The prompt ‘Godzilla’ eventually leads to T-rex studies. I am a fan of Godzilla’s controversial fat neck btw.

A Godzilla quickie for #Sketch_dailies, two versions. Loved the movie, keep shaking my head about those those office people in blockbusters who keep working till the last second…
