How to Train Your Dragon: Location Design

.














I very much enjoyed doing rockwork for How to Train Your Dragon. My Dad is a geologist and he passed on a strong interest in it to me. This area is meant to be a granite mountaintop carved out by man and nature and it was important to describe a sense of the overall structure to the digital modelers.

Love these pieces, especially the 'training grounds ceiling' with beautiful depth, lighting and composition. You made a perfect balance of man-made and natural details, though I wish these ended up in the 'art of' book! Thanks.
