Truthfully, this is not much, but it was fun to draw. :)

I've read a couple of fics where Hiccup is said to be a very good archer, which is plausible considering how he aimed at Toothless with his bolas canon. So I decided to draw him -a bit older, mind you- practising archery. And yes, the arrow's on fire, but don't ask me why =D But after I was done, I realised all of a sudden that I had made Hiccup right-handed out of pure habit, so please forgive me for not having paid enough attention to that little detail :forgiveme:

In the top right corner, we've got a slightly younger Hiccup (who, for some odd reason, makes me think of Oliver Twist saying "Please, sir, I want some more."...Go figure.) :hug:

Oh and of course there's Astrid. She's a bit pissed off since her Deadly Nadder (which I named Starkad, by the way) seemingly wants to keep sleeping instead of listening to her rider...:pointandlaugh:

Hiccup as an archer makes sense. The bow with arrows is a light weapon and he's shown to have good accuracy in regards to aim.

And he looks damned cute, too!

Yes, I definitely see him as an excellent archer and a very good swordman (he is amazing with a sword..in the books, at least). =D

Thanks! :)

Hm, it would be ironic, huh? A dragon and rider who use range weapons. If I was a Viking going to attack Berk, I'm just gonna go hide behind something sturdy enough to withstand both Night Fury fire and flaming arrows.

...Does something like that even exist?

Maybe in our time, but I somehow doubt it existed in Vikings' era ^^;
Well, especially for the Night Fury part =D

I hope Berk doesn't have sharks. Or water dragons who dine on human flesh.

Either way, I'm calling in sick on that attack.

Yup, i can definetly see him as an archer :), also being now able to fight properly only on the back of Toothless i think long ranged weapon are the only real choiches for him :D

Indeed :nod: Although he's also depicted in the books as being fairly good with a sword. :) Definitely not with an axe, though =D

Wonderful sketches. I really love the Hiccup one on the top.

I read a few about him being a good archer as well. He does seem to have good accuracy, and archery is a good skill, especially since he spends alot of time on Toothless, and wouldn't be able to hand-to-hand without getting off.

It's okay, you're not the only one who keeps forgetting he's left handed.. I actually didn't realize that he was until about a month after the movie when someone pointed it out to me....

Oh, yeah! Hey, you're right!

Ya know, there was serious stigma against people who were left-handed because it was considered unlucky, etc. Which just, even slightly and without intention, shows how deeply isolated Hiccup was due to his differences form the rest of the tribe.

Yes, Toothless and archer Hiccup go together! :nod:

Well, I had to point it out anyway. If only to prevent all the left-handed artists on DA from screaming at me ^^; =D

Mayhaps Hiccup's ambedextrious at archery? Granted he'd probably use his dominant side most often, but I (and several fellow archers) have at least passable ability at using bows on either side^^

Wow, you're an archer? That's very cool! =D I mean, I tried archery last summer and I was happy to find out I was not as rubbish at it as I was at air rifle :laughing: (which is fine by me, since I don't like guns, rifles, and so on).

Okay then, let's say Hiccup's ambidextrious at archery =D :handshake:
Reply
:icondigitalstitch626:
digitalstitch626 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2010
Yes, I am^^ One of the few sports I have any talent in. But whenever I shoot using my left side (my non-dominant) my aim goes awry---I can shoot the arrow just fine, but the odds of hitting my target go way, way down.

We have decided---he is ambidextrious at archery :handshake:
