Sword training (commission)

I always imagined that some time after the first movie, Astrid would eventually teach some fight basic to Hiccup… not that he can turn into a super warrior, but at least handle some weapon when it’s necessary

HTTYD week, Day One

"There were dragons when I was a boy"

Older Hiccup reminiscing about the past. I made myself sad. :P But it was an awesome challenge to draw this in such a short time (not to mention the fact that I’ve been toying around with the idea of drawing older Hiccup :P). This week is going to be just wow, challenge-wise.

For a great man has fallen. A warrior. A chieftain. A father. A friend.

Why the everlong fuck is Astrid smiling.

okay but can we all appreciate that this is probably the only animated movie with the most realistic, gut-wrenching crying? Like this scene right here, the expressions, the tiny changes in the facial muscles and details is by far unlike what real actors can muster. It’s just… we not only cried for stoick but we fucking bawled with these characters. we all mourned together, not caring about that this movie is fictional, only crying real tears for a character we grew to love. The feeling’s mutual with many other movies and shows and games… but the tears of these characters hit deeper. at least that’s my opinion

damn dreamworks you scary

Just for information for chiwandering up there: Astrid isn’t smiling. She’s coping. She’s coping with the fact that Stoick, her chief, her future father-in-law, has died. That her love’s father is gone and Hiccup has all the weight of Berk on his shoulders now. She’s coping with it the only way she knows how to: by remembering Stoick as he was, be strongly believing in Hiccup, and by never giving up. Astrid is a warrior. She’s not smiling at someone’s death. She’s honouring another warrior. She knows if they all succumb to grief now, they will never have a chance against Drago.

I love Astrid eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and this blog!

Astrid isn’t smiling. She’s acknowledging death and realizing it’s a part of life. Besides, Astrid spends most of the time trying to prove she’s just as tough as the guys (toughnut not included) and shes letting for a second feelings come through and being human and she’s not smiling she’s just letting emotions through all at once.

THANK YOU

She’s smiling because she knows Stoick is now free. He doesn’t have to witness the pain of war anymore. He’s now in Valhalla and Astrid knows it’s a beautiful place.
