Beyond the Clouds (Review of Lego creation by Stormbringer)

It's time for another review! I'm gonna try and keep these varied and therefore interesting, and today I've chosen to do a review on a lego creation (also called a moc) by Stormbringer. He/she (agh, I'm unsure of gender, but I'm pretty sure he's a he... so I'm just gonna say he and hope to be safe.) kindly gave me permission to post pictures of his creation here, and I really do just love his work! Click the read more to see more images of his set and to read my more thought out opinion of it.

A Dragon's Journey

Well, as I write this I’m actually sitting in the passenger seat of a car on a road-trip to my grandparents! Hopefully I’ll find somewhere with wifi so I can post it to you all. I’ve really looked forward to and dreaded this kind of analysis because in it I will be taking characters from HTTYD and trying to explore some of the major arcs they went through in the second film. In this post I plan to explore one of the most lovable characters of the franchise and the journey he took in the second film. In this post I’ll be discussing the character arc of Toothless.

He's just a Fanboy, and Twenty, could there be a worse possible combination?!

Alright! Bday post! Today is my twentieth birthday, and considering Hiccup and I turned twenty in the same year, it is a pretty exciting date! Bellow I'm gonna post some of the gifts I've been given, and I'll update it if I receive any more. Thanks so much to everyone in the fandom (haha, and those that are not but keep up with this blog out of friendship to me), for the gifts and the well wishes! So far, you've made this day a blast!

Taking a break

Hi all. Thanks very much for reading this blog and following it, I really do appreciate it. I will be taking a break from posting... not sure how long. I really worry that I've started to use fiction as an escape, and an escape in an unhealthy way. It takes up a lot of my free time to write on here and to do the art, so I think I'm going to take a break from it so as to use the free time for something more important. I need to focus on my walk as a Christian because that is what is important to me, and that is the great adventure. I do think that I will still be posting, but maybe not for a while. Thanks for reading and I hope you'll understand. I really do worry that my obsession with fictional things has really drained my ability to walk with Christ and to grow in holiness.

Hiccup and Toothless

Alright! I actually got time to do art this weekend! This will probably be my only post I get to do because I do still have an exam to study for, but this was a fun break from all of that. It didn't take me too long either. Anyway, it is another crossover piece, and I REALLY hope some of my readers will recognize what I am parodying.

A fantastic bit of art (by kairu321)

I admit... this is sort of a cop-out post for me. I've been so, soooo busy with my college work of late, I really haven't been able to post anything really good lately. So, since I'm not creating any quality work, I figured I might as well do a review on someone else's! Click the read more to see all the pieces.

And even MORE college doodles

Click the read more to see my newest bits and bobs of quick, rushed, and very unprofessional doodles. I know this isn't much of a post, but I've been so busy of late! Anyway, hope you'll enjoy them.

Princess of Twilight meets The Fury of Night

So, this is one of my more hair brained, off the wall ideas, but I did a rather silly (hopefully somewhat charming) digital painting just recently! The idea came to me just three days ago, so I'm surprised I finished it so quickly. To see the entire image and read a description of how and why I painted it, please click the "read more".

Date News

I have just learnt from the Grapevine that HTTYD3 has been pushed back. It will not be released as soon as we first expected. This is kind of a bummer in some ways... but there is a bright side to everything. Previously it was going to be released summer of 2016. Now the new release date is set to be June 9 2017. That is a long time to wait... a really long time. But, to be honest, the second movie made us wait four years. I don't know how many of you felt this, but I was shocked by how worth the wait the second one was. I don't want the third one to be rushed, especially considering how dramatic the ending looks like it will be. Sure, I wish I could know the ending sooner, but I also am happy to get another year of speculating and spazzing and hoping and dreading! Once the third movie is over... I am pretty sure we will be done. There will probably be no new HTTYD stuff. I'll never stop loving the story (just like I'll never stop loving LotR), but I won't be kept on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen to our heroes next. We can enjoy these years, and we can hope that when we come to the end of the trilogy, it will have been worth the weighting, longing, and loving we've all done. The second one was... so I can wait on the third.

Toothless Found... Toothless Finding Himself

I'm going to try and write a little analysis of one aspect of the "Toothless Found" scene. I had been thinking about this for a while, and after seeing Rima's post about this scene (which I posted on this blog. Thanks again Rima!), I really felt like I could try and voice my thoughts because they kind of mesh well with her's, and it is always exciting to agree with other fans! Anyway, click the "read more"
