HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2?!?!
it would be like the icing of the cake!
Or HTTYD 3 because by then the dragons will be extinct, so there’s nothing left to do but imagine them.

aaah I've been too shy to ask, but could you make a tutorial on how you color eyes? Like in your most recent pic!
aaa i’ll try my best to put something together but i’m generally pretty poor at explaining things so i’m not sure how much help it’d be (；ω；)
also i should let you know most of the time i just make things up as i go along, and my way of colouring is really based more on what i think looks nice rather than any kind of logic. so take this with a big grain of salt !!!
i think most of this is pretty self explanatory, though i keep the whites of the eye and the iris all on separate layers
also don’t make the whites of the eye literally white, not like #FFFFFF white. eyes are more like a slightly yellow white, plus highlights won’t stand out as much (really bright highlights are more of an aesthetic choice for me though)
i also did a little soft colouring around the eye itself too
the ring pupil with a lighter colour inside is something i picked up form yuugiou (￣ω￣)
i can’t really tell you how i pick these colours other than that i make it up as i go along and lift colours form my already existing colour scheme
7 & 8 i made new layers set to overlay, and with the soft brush put in those colours at the side there. i guess i do this mostly so there’s lots of variety of colour in the eyes, since the iris was already a cool purple i wanted to have some warmer colours in there, also to make the bright orange pupil blend in more and be less jarring
for 9 i made a new layer set to multiply and drew in a shadow. in 10 i went back to the layer for skin and soft brushed in more colours like a slight red, and some of the purple from the iris for the appearance of make and a lil blush. and a bit of red in the fleshy eye bit in the corner that i have no idea what the name is
then i added some highlights using light blue, which is a colour i hadn’t used at all before so it serves to contrast against the rest of the colours in there. same colour used for the lower eyelashes.
after that i just did some little tweaks like lowering the opacity of the linear to 80%, and some pink at the top of the eye on a layer set to soft light (i guess you could say it’s bouncing light but mostly it’s just because i like the look of it orz)
pleaasssee don’t take this as like the end-all-be-all way of drawing eyes since it’s really heavily stylised and mostly based on my my aesthetic preferences, make sure you do studies of actual eyes too and experiment to find your own preferences and stylistic choices too !!! but i also understand practicing other people’s styles can be helpful too so hopefully this was at least a little helpful

i made a walkthrough thing but i didn’t realise it was actually sent to my personal so i’m reblogging here toooo

Lunch Break (hijack office AU)
"We shouldn’t be doing this," Hiccup whispered, afraid someone might still be lingering nearby and would hear him. But, even as he said it, he gripped Jack’s hair tighter and pulled. The skillful tongue continued its ministrations on his burning skin. "You know we’re gonna get caught, right?"
"That’s not a proper lunch." Omg. I can’t keep a straight face! Reading this at school!

I was so moved by this simple idea, since it didn’t occur to me until my second viewing of the movie that - holy crap, yah. Elsa wasn’t present at their parents’ funeral. I also have a deep love of drawing reeaaaally intense expressions so I when I saw her lovely art I felt compelled to draw those same expressions, in the Jin Kim/Disney style.
This was in no way an attempt to “improve” the art, as CubeWatermelon has a wonderful style already. I mainly just wanted to see the expressions in another way, and many thanks to her for allowing me to share this.

Mermaid by Sergey Kolesov
Ok, that’s fucking terrifying and cool.
woah I love this interpretation of mermaids. not human sized, but the size of like a blue whale
if you like that then you need to read The Wake. It’s basically exactly what you’ve always wanted. The cast of characters involved is amazing, I blab about it sometimes, I am in love with it.
I love this painting too though, I wish I had a poster of it
