So, this will wrap up my boards from Dragon 2. I still have one other post to make about story and my story notes regarding the character that Drago developed into, but this will be the last of the artwork.
I worked on the show and this sequence as Dean reworked the ideas and characters in it, particularly Valka, from August through November of 2011. It was a quick stint, but very satisfying to be able to be a part of the franchise that I'd gotten to be an inaugural member of so many years earlier.
In this final installment, Valka has unleashed the Bewilderbeast which in turn now exercises some mysterious control over Astrid's dragon as Stormfly goes crazy and tries to throw Astrid and Eret off to their deaths.
Hiccup will find Toothless hypnotized as well and turn to Stoick for help.
