Get Up And Run WIP by Bintavivi Get Up And Run WIP by Bintavivi
I've been listening to Tania Opland and Mike Freeman's song "Run!" from their album "Sunset's Gold", which is based on Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series.

"Then my feet took off my legs went, too,
And my body was obliged to follow.
Me with my hands and mouth full of cress
And my throat too dry to swallow.

I thought Id run before been running all my life
Never doubting I could hold my own
But faster than Ive ever been is still not fast enough
Though Im straining every muscle and bone, to

Run! Run! Run! No time to think, stop or stay, just
Run! Run! Run! I want to live to see the end of this day."

Those lyrics inspired this scene where Hiccup and Tuffnut are attacked -for a reason that I will not reveal for now- and outnumbered. The snowstorm (that is not yet visible since it's a WIP), Hiccup's prosthetic leg and Tuff's wound make it difficult for the both of them to run away, yet they know they have to do it if they want to stay alive.

Done with graphite pencils.
Full colour version should be ready today or tomorrow.

Thanks!! :hug:

Oh yeah, that is so true. :plotting: As for the title, I'm happy to announce that I've just found 2 possible titles which respectively are:

1) Beyond the Realms
2) Flight of the Dragon Riders

Any preference?

Oo! Those are both cool. But I think personally I like Beyond the Realms better just because it seems more.... broad and abstract. Flight of the Dragon riders makes me expect just that. But Beyond the Realms puts more mystery in my head.... because I just don't know what's beyond the realms!! :noes:

*lol* But it could be just me thinking too deep. ^^;
