Hiccup, meet Hiccup!

Here's a little drawing I made for Cressida Cowell, the writer of "How To Train Your Dragon", the book.
Although our film differs quite a lot from her book, she assures us all that she's perfectly fine with that.
They are two very different animals, but with the same heart, so to speak.
I was very fortunate to Supervise the animation on Hiccup, and while I'm still

I hope fans of the book feel the same. The film opens this weekend. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it!

This guy was never used in the film. I think he sort of preceded Hamegg as an antagonistic character of sorts.
Again, this is me following up on Luis' designs.
