if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao
I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
It was just supposed to be a cutesy movie about a boy learning to train a dragon NOT THIS CRUD ABOUT A BOY WHO SHOOTS DOWN A DRAGON WITH THE INTENTION OF KILLING IT, REFUSES, BEFRIENDS THE DRAGON, BETRAYS EVERYTHING HIS PEOPLE HAVE EVER BELIEVE IN, FALLS OUT WITH HIS FATHER,…
There’s just a few frames in the second gif where hiccup looks so nervous. i mean he’s just about to confront this menacing guy who could easily kill him and all he has is his words and you can see that he’s covering it up and putting on a brave face but he’s secretly scared as hell. He takes a deep breath, puts his fear behind him and gets down to business and its just wow animation.
Thank you kindly! I’m the animator who animated this moment. You hit the nail right on the head! This is Hiccup’s first time meeting Drago. In his attempt to change this “madman’s” mind, it was important to see both courage and caution in his face, as the situation was both terrifying and unpredictable (considering what’s already happened)…
Oh wow really? thats awesome! all hail the animator. Such talented :3. I feel his emotion in this scene, I really do! it’s incredible.
