i liked working on this sequence... a version had already been done by a very gifted artist, alessandro carloni, and he had used these b+w photographs of sky, so in trying to match the look of what he had done i borrowed his idea for the sky in these... when i boarded my version i chose not to show the boat until the first arrow landed, to give some mystery to the scene, so the shot of gobber handing the bow and arrow to hiccup was shot from their front... this changed in the final. but most of what i did is intact

these are drawings i just ran across from an early version of the first dragon movie. in this scene, gobber and stoick had an argument over how stoick was raising hiccup... it got pretty intense, but gobber stood his ground and got the point across... i always liked this sequence.

a bartender at a nice restaurant in nashville and i got into a conversation and he found out i worked on ren and stimpy. he was a huge fan of the show and i promised him i'd send him along a drawing later. i was thinking of what to draw for him and started sketching the characters again in sketchbook ( i haven't drawn them in ages) and this came out. i thought it was a fun mashup...

Today I was returning from another trip to nashville where I spent the week putting together the first cut of the veggie tales episode I am working on... this drawing kept me busy for a good chunk of the flight...I am trying to practice the technique of 'spotting blacks', which is to say designing the black areas of an inked drawing. I am not terribly good at it, all my heroes are awesome at it, and I have decided to try and figure out this skill. It may take some time...
