nothing in particular

these are merely my practicing inking and 'spotting black areas'... just for fun...

funeral sequence drawings

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

old sequence from dragon 1

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.
