London Sketch by alohalilo London Sketch by alohalilo
I thought I'd post something different today, since I'm on my way to NY to record an actress for the new movie, and I won't finish inking the tutorial till Friday morning. I am pretty close to finishing it, which means I'll actually get on to the more interesting part of the whole thing next week.

While I was in London, where we spent a week at AIR studio for the recording of the Dragons score, I had some time (first time in a long long time) to actually draw. So I sat above the orchestra and drew in my little sketchbook. This is the "Dragon Babies" version of two of the films characters. Astrid and a Gronkle. No, we're not developing anything like this, just something I wanted to draw.

This is the most adorable Gronkle I have ever seen :D I would love to have one if it had such a look.
Well, since You’re a professional drawer You probably don't need such comments anymore, but I adore Your style. Quick and sketchy, but perfectly accurate. Full of anatomical changes and disproportions, but still easy to understand and ... simply cute. Especially when you draw animals <3
I personally have a huge problem with using different lines – wide and slim, to pick up the most important parts of my drawings – that’s probably why I like Your style that much. You are doing it instinctively and it looks just amazing.
Summing up, I’ve heard some time that a great artist can do anything in his works and we will believe in it, no matter how strange or unnatural it will appear. I do believe in Your work.
Stay awesome! ^^

Omigoooddnnessss you got to listen to the orchestra? Also, HTTYD was a wonderful movie and this has to be one of the cuter renderings of the characters I've seen. That Gronkle, so cute <3

Those doughball eyes :lol: He seems so suprised but also very obedient? Y'know like as soon as she said "sit!" his little wings would stop flapping and he'd hit the ground with a big wump. Nice work Mr. Sanders.

Very funny. I don't know if it was intentional, but I really like how the pointing finger seems to show movement and drama to emphasize Astrid's emotions and intent.

I love the score to HTTYD - John Powell has made it to the top of my favorite composers list (funny, before I got the CD of the score, I was trying to remember the music to "test drive" and wound up thinking of "building the crate" from Chicken Run before I had even realized he had composed both). It must have been wonderful to be there for the recording. I think your work is phenomenal (as an artist, and as a biologist). I'm looking forward to the Croods.
