The first version of How to Train Your Dragon was very faithful to the book; Hiccup was young, Toothless was small and the dragons talked. That's right, they talked. Here's some more exploratory sketches based on this early take on the characters/world. The dragon/viking pages were drawn with pen and water soluble colored pencils. The moments with Hiccup and Toothless and the Green Death were drawn and colored in Photoshop on a cintiq. Fun times!
