How to Train Your Dragon

.






How to Train Your Dragon is showing real staying power in theaters, here are a few location design pieces. This is the interior of Dragon Island. I did them in photoshop, they're based on a look created by our Art Director extraordinaire, Pierre Olivier Vincent.

THIS is great; one can concentrate on values. SUBjectively one sees a dragon's eye in the lower left as Hiccup stands on the dragon's snout.

You're a prince for posting these. FYI: if you can get down to the MONTAGE park in Laguna now- all the flowers are Happening!
