Going to school with a dress code
“Keeping to the idea of shooting like a live-action film is really evident in the flying scenes, especially in that moment where Cloudjumper flies around. If you are shooting against the sun, you have to let him go into silhouette. It’s much more cinematic, more like what you would get in a live-action film.” –Pablo Valle, head of lighting
This guy deserves an Oscar.
For me, the most impressive thing about the new software was used to do was the absolute AMAZING lighting used in this film. The more subtle facial animations they applied to the characters is a close second, but the lighting…, it added so much more life and scope to the world of Dragons…
It’s simply amazing.
"The Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD feature hours of bonus materials that explore the world of dragons and more. Furthermore, the Blu-ray™ and Digital HD contain four exclusive featurettes, deleted scenes and a 60-minute behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of the film, shot and created by the film’s writer and director Dean DeBlois”.
OHHHHH MYYY GODDDS
Hell yeah it’s the best animated film of the year. Of all time, more like.
This looks like an adorable cross between a Night Fury and a Terrible Terror
“Astrid is still a strong feminine character. But she is a little less tomboy and a little more glamorous. Her relationship with Hiccup has evolved.” –Pierre-Olivier Vincent, production designer

same here. *rolls eyes*
Hmm I think that description was made by someone who doesn’t really understand that there shouldn’t be a distinction between femininity and strength (be it physical or of the character itself)
Making of HTTYD 2: Process
I’m so tired but still can’t sleep. My fingers are aching a bit. I drew/wrote so much today since the rp I was involved with is closing tomorrow. I’m sad about it but at the same time its opening the door for other side projects too.
