Getting used to it by Bintavivi Getting used to it by Bintavivi
Phew!!! :phew:

I thought I'd never get this done!! This took me forever! I'm a bit ashamed of myself, 'cause I wanted to draw Astrid and/or Toothless in there too, but eventually became too lazy to do it. And I lacked space. (and inspired by [link])

Anyway, a picture of Hiccup wandering in the autumn forest and trying to get used to his prosthetic leg/foot and find a satisfactory balance.

Lineart with a black pen, coloured with Gimp 2.6 :)
Download for a very full view!

Dx why did he have to lose his foot!? o.o... or was it half his leg?

It's cut just below the knee.

That was the price to pay. The director's choiuce, not mine. :XD:
But I love it. It is sad, but it makes the movie seem so much more realistic, and it opens a door to countless possibilities of character development and also countless situations. :)

Hmmm... Look, i'm sorry, I don't mean to be rude. I love this drawing but the more I look at it, the more it looks an awful lot like this cover : [link]

I know it's important to look at other artists and try to emulate their styles to learn drawing and inking, but if you do so, please list the cover or drawing that has served as an inspiration, otherwise you might get accused of stealing art.

Just a little FYI.

Oh mais c'est qu'il est attachant ! Tu fais de remarquables progrès au niveau des ombres on dirait !
Encore une fois, l'arrière-plan est en accord avec le premier.
Peut-être faudrait-il ombrer également les feuilles avec lesquelles il semble s'amuser...
Comme toujours, je retrouve beaucoup d'émotion et de sensibilité dans tes dessins.

Les feuilles étaient suffisamment chi****s à dessiner comme ça, alors j'avoue que j'ai été un peu paresseuse au niveau des ombres =D

Wonderful coloring, (I esp. love the way your painted the background).

And yes, backgrounds are a nightmare for me too.

And is it just me, or do those flowing autumn leaves reminds me of Pocahontas? x3

Thank you :tighthug:

Really? For you too? Come here, I feel like I'm gonna kiss you! :aww: (don't be scared)

Actually, it is just you. ^^; Or a coincidence. Pocahontas never was one of my favourites (although I can now admit it is not as bad as I once thought it was)and it certainly didn't cross my mind when I drew those leaves. On the other hand, I am glad that someone finally commented on those leaves =D

This is amazing. :O

I really like how the colours complement each other in this piece! It's interesting how the main subject matter is almost in a different style... or rather, it's coloured differently so that he stands out and such.

It really is a beautiful piece. I especially like how rays of light seem to cut across the frame, adding depth in that sense. :)
Reply
:iconbintavivi:
Bintavivi Featured By Owner May 9, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks :huggle:

Well, the difference of colouring is mainly due to the fact that I drew the background and the main character separatedly. ^^; And when I put them together, I found that -surprinsingly enough to me- it actually did not look bad that way :)

I think it is one of my finest pieces yet. I'm glad so many people like it, too.

Looking at this makes me believe that its possible to make something epic with Gimp.

Hey, don't give up: I've been using Gimp for about a year now, and I still consider myself a beginner :pat: (I don't have photoshop, and currently lack the money to buy it -and the time to learn how to use it- so I had to find an alternative). :)

Thanks!! :huggle:
