OK

THIS WAS REALLY HARD but I did it oh my god

Inspired by this which was inspired by another post…. I’ve never drawn Gobber or Stoick before, but I wanted to give it a try! IT WAS REALLY HARD but I think I pulled it off!

It’s not perfect, but I hope it gives you a good laugh!

What a better day to finish this than today! A whole ton of dragon tongues for you to enjoy! 

Available as stickers on my Redbubble - and a whole bunch of other things, seeing as how I conveniently made the file really big…

These’d also be good buttons, but alas, I don’t have a button maker :S Maybe some day!

pthhhhhbhbt open full size in new tab plz

I watched A:tlE andddddd felt like drawing an Atlantean Toothless or something idk…. glowy blue lines n junk. He looks a little wonky cause I didn’t use too many references, and I gotta sit down and do another study session of Toothless, I’m a lil rusty.

Guess this goes right up there under weird dragon crossovers with my Ender Toothless, right?

Don’t look at it too close up, it’s pretty messy. I’m v sure someone else out there has done a better designed hybrid, but I went for a more direct blending of the two so…. weh, it’s something drawn, heh

Hey look, more scribbles.

Anyways, decided to give a try at drawing out what I think Feral!Hiccup dresses like in hiilikedragon’s story, Wild Hearts! (it’s fantab go read it!)

I’m no designer. But I wanted to keep Hiccup’s main design in HTTYD2 the same here, just because it’s so… Hiccup-y. Even in the wilds surrounded by dragons Valka managed to somehow make her own leather and scale armor, so I figured Hiccup would too, with his own flair of course.

I added a few details from Valka’s armor into it, mainly the excessive use of leather straps (wait Hiccup already has that) and some dragon spikes! He also mimicked Valka’s use of bright paint - but a color he liked more. I added a few colors from Valka’s scheme because hey - she already has the colors, why wouldn’t Hiccup use it too?

Also his staff - from the first time I read the story I pictured Hiccup’s staff to have a large rock at the end of it as the bludgeon, and I looked up old stone clubs and the sort to see how they’d attach the rocks to sticks (lots and lots of leather straps, hey!) And I figured the blade would/could probably be a large dragon spike sharpened and carved into a blade. I added the holes in it for some flair, maybe they can make noise like Valka’s staff?

Hiccup of course put some flashy dragon design on his left shoulder, and he has a few hidden blades on him as well, most noticably the one on his right forearm and right boot. His cloak is from a large brown bear that was killed by some dragons defending itself, and Hiccup figured the pelt wasn’t too scorched so he made himself a cloak. He also has some dragon hide on him, but only from dragons who died naturally of course. Mostly on his upper torso under his leather. He doesn’t want it to be too noticable lest the dragons get upset over it.

Aaaand his mask! Big, spiky, and rather alien looking. And more red! Yay! That’s not scary at all is it. Then things like his leather gloves and metal kneepads to help protect him while he’s out romping on all fours… read the story, you’ll understand. 

Anyways, I just had fun with this, hope you like!

Behold! The blunder of Toopliss and Strumflee, with special guests Floop and Berndert.

………..these were really fun to do, aside from the fact that as I drew them they got progressively more and more strange….. and I used the marker tool which was rather smooth to line with, instead of my usual pen tool.

… it just wasn’t working out with the pen tool on these ones.

Anyways, Toopliss and Strumflee designed by the ever wonderful @faragornart! I have some brainchilds for derps for the other main dragons, but I think those designs would best be left to the experts ;)

Enjoy the derp!

((open them in new tab plz))

I’d very much appreciate it if you completelyt ignore my attempt at manga shading/greyscale and just look at the inks coz I’m at least somewhat happy with how they turned out soooooooooo

Woke up with an idea this morning - HTTYD/Ral Grad crossover.

Hiccup’s home has for generations been at war with Shadows - monstrous creatures that exist and are born from the dark. They eat anything they can get their mouths on to add to their strength and to change their forms and powers.

Through a series of events, Hiccup finds himself at the mercy of a dangerous Shadow in the forests surrounding his home village, with another Shadow nearly slain from the first one - having being weakened beforehand by an invention of Hiccup’s. The second Shadow strikes up a deal with Hiccup, let him possess Hiccup and join their intelligence and power to survive - Hiccup accepts.

Through much trial and error, Hiccup becomes the first person in his village’s history to have successfully partnered and befriended with Shadow - and on top of that it’s the legendary Night Fury - a Shadow that is darker than the blackest black, and is unbeatable in speed and power.

pttttbbbhthtb I could write a bunch more but here you go whatever. 

some toothless sketches with no reference and not having drawn toothless in a few months!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so yeah these r really inaccurate and just sorta tests??? and example of my style who knows uh

please don’t use these as reference! they were just for fun, and they’re really inaccurate so. I need to do some toothless studies and practicing before I can draw him well. at least I can TELL that its inaccurate, i guess…

Kuda’s my name, crossovers are my game.

Hiccup the duelist - unassuming and dweeby but once his deck hits the table your ass is grass. Heavily dragon-themed deck, with the occasional machine-equip support. His trump card is the Starry Night Furious Dragon, one of a kind powerful card that’s his signature. He doesn’t always use it to win but he really enjoys the duels where he needs to use it. Means it’s a challenge.

Slapped on lazy screentone layer, also bonus disembodied detailed Hiccup head to PROVE that yes I can draw better, but I can’t be arsed to put in that much effort half the time.

Do you know how hard it is to articulate 6 wings????

Anyways, more info on Skyspinners, particularly Unn’s dragon!

This is Flupp. That’s his name. 

Flupp is a amalgamation of “fly” and “up” - two things Unn found herself demanding when first learning to ride her dragon, so that became his name.

Unn and Flupp met when she was 14 - on a normal day of flying and patrolling with her nestmates she spotted Flupp flying and soaring in the skies over her territory. In a hell of a chase through the clouds on a Nadder, Flupp decided to finally investigate this odd creature on the back of a dragon, and the two were instantly inseparable.

Flupp and Unn’s bond is much like Toothless’ and Hiccups - brotherly soulmates. The two of them are rarely apart. Even though Flupp’s species naturally spend 90% of their lives in the skies, he sacrifices his love of the sky to spend more time with his rider on her natural habitat - the ground. 

That’s not to say that the two of them don’t try to spend as much time as physically possible in the air. Flupp’s saddle was one that Unn made herself - it’s not the best, and the weak materials often break and need replacing, but it’s the best she can do. She learns to have strong legs and arms, and catching her when she falls off his back has become second nature to her dragon.

It’s not easy riding a Skyspinner. They ride the wind like a ribbon, their incredibly flexible body and multitude of wings making riding it a challenge even to the most experienced dragon rider. Flying becomes MUCH easier once the two of them have a proper saddle - something that comes later in their story.

Where Unn is hotheaded, Flupp is cool. He’s her voice of reason, pulling her out of dangerous situations and helping her keep from flying off the handle - literally. He’s wary and cautious, and it takes a lot to earn his trust, but once you do, he’ll trust you with his life.

Skyspinners are not from the Berkian region - they normally prefer warmer climates, but are known to wander in their lives in the skies. It’s hard to find Skyspinners when it’s not laying season, as the spend so much time in the vast expanse of the sky. The only time to really find them is the few months when they land to lay and take care of their young - and as soon as the babies can fly properly they’re off again.

Eventually once I get some really nice art done for these guys I’ll make another big post on the species, and what it takes to earn one as a rider. For now, enjoy my scribbles.

Lineart done, from the stream!!

Sorry about the giant watermarkthingy, this is just one of my most complicated and detailed pieces to date, and I just wanna try and discourage any… ideas. 

Super super proud of how this turned out!!!! Entire lineart took about…4 and a half hours. Not too bad. 

Turns out hoarding images off tumblr came in handy, needed a lot of odd angle references for Hiccup’s armor, but it turned out good. (Ps: plz don’t praise me on his face, i used borderline tracing to get the angles of his expression right, so I don’t consider it fully done by me. if I had done it by eye, it would have looked so bad haha;;)

ANYWAYS everything else is by hand with references, super happy with how it looks UwU though this will take a long long long time to complete because of all the detail necessary haha;;;;;

Please look forward to the finished project!

PS: if you missed the stream, here’s the whole thing up on Twitch.tv! I’m currently working on making a sped-up version of it for youtube for later!

So I figured I’d show a bit of my progress on the last drawing I did since I’ve never done that before.

I cut a lot of corners with how dark the image is, but this is the same/similar technique I used on my Monster Hunter/HTTYD drawing. As you can see in the gif, my refining layer is just a layer I splat color on to cover mistakes, add details, ect. Hiccup’s Inferno was completely painted on in the refining layer, cause I had just blocked it in in the sketch.

This probably isn’t the best image to do a progress set on, anhd I’ll do another one with the next image I do. If I remember.

I was trying to think of the simplest, easiest way to describe these two’s personalities. 

I think I nailed it.

Long story: Flupp is really aloof to anyone other than his rider, and even if you approach him with the best intentions, it takes a LONG TIME for him to be able to trust someone.

Bandit is fairly easy-going. Offer him a snack, and you just gained a new friend. This is after he befriended his rider and learned that it’s ok to trust vikings Berkians.

sssssssssssssorry about the crappy pics!! Just took them quickly.

At a dollar store I found a little calligraphy pen! Decided to try it out - I forgot that drawing with ink was fun. The nib on it is actually really nice, I’m disappointed it’s a one-use pen (as in the ink well isn’t refillable)

I also tried out my white and gold gel pens! Of course they’re not as good as if they were real white and gold ink pens but they’ll do. The gold is fairly nice, and while the white isn’t as strong as i hoped it’d be it’s ok.

Of course to test them out I scribbled some night blurries. I also filled a small page of writing and runes scribbles for fun too haha
