New Found Land by Psithyrus New Found Land by Psithyrus
I finally watched "How to Train your Dragon". I fell in love with the movie. I also enjoyed the featurette about how to draw a Night Fury. This scene is a homage to the movie. It shows a little viking girl (Aesa) and her massive friend (a bulky night fury named Gulltop). They stand watch over their village, a remote norse whaling outpost in the New World. I did a lot of research on norse village life, I was surprised how similar their dwellings were, with the exception that villagers used whatever building materials they had at hand.

Hope you like this painting.

All the best,

I love HTTYD! Night fury is great, but has too big head.

So natural. How To Train Your Dragon is the best movie of the year, beats Toy Story 3 and Guardians of Ga'hoole!

I've still yet to see this movie...if this picture is any indication of how good it is, I'd really like to see it. :D
I really love the textures in this painting, and that it's researched! I love how the background fades out into the distance, and becomes more and more detailed the closer to the front it is. :D It has a really incredible sense of depth.

This picture totally floored me. This by far is the most amazing How to Train your Dragon artwork I've ever seen. I love how Gulltop looks. And the house behind is just amazing as well. Even tiny details like the skull thingy! Its soooo cool! :) How do you manage to get so much tiny detail into your pictures? Like the armor clothes. And the chainmail hanging out. Its just insane!

I am in love with this painting! I love your attention to detail in foreground and background textures. I love Gulltop's mane, and Aesa's armor. Keep up the great work!

P.S- I'm glad you finally say HTTYD. :) That movie warms my heart.
