HTTYD x 4!

So, yesterday was AWESOME. A theater in my area was showing HTTYD early in the morning. There was only one showing, so I was very lucky to catch it! Even though it wasn't in 3D... there really is nothing like watching movies on the big screen. I went that morning with my little bro (both of us sporting really cool HTTYD tee shirts) to the theater, and I watched HTTYD for the fourth time on the big screen! I really am surprised I learned about this single showing. A friend of mine told me about it almost a month ago, and then my little brother saw a flier and reminded me of it... so thanks very much to both of them!

It was beautiful... really it was. I do love that first movie so much. It is honestly kind of jolting to go back and see the world so different... see Hiccup and Toothless FIRST MEETING EACH OTHER. It is strange to see Stoick almost being the antagonist, to remember why Hiccup is so easy to relate to as the underdog, and to fall in love with Toothless all over again as he slowly opens up to the scrawny viking boy. I am totally willing to confess that I teared up in Forbidden Friendship... especially when Toothless first sits down by the drawing Hiccup. Also, the slight trembling in Hiccup's extended hand is just a gorgeous detail that isn't easy to see because it is so small, but rather noticeable in a theater! So, yeah, it was loads of fun! (Also, MAN, the leg-scene at the end of the movie is just heart-wrenchingly beautiful! Gah, who knew this series would be both happy and tragic!? The third one is going to kill me).

Sorry about my delay on the episode reviews. I should get back in the saddle before too long :)

RttE: Big Man On Berk

Ok... I now continue on my quest to write at least small reviews on every RttE episode. Haha... yeah. This one is probably my least favorite of the series, so I am probably gonna struggle to find positive things to say about it. You have been warned. If you absolutely loved it, you may just want to skip this review. Haha, however, it has been a day since I've seen it, so maybe I will have forgotten a couple of things that I disliked!

Toothless Calm Stare (Happy Birthday Toothlesslove!)

Today is my the birthday of my great friend and fellow HTTYD fan, Toothlesslove! She, along with Inhonoredglory, have made some really fantastic contributions to the HTTYD fandom as a whole, and they've both been great friends to me. This digital painting is a small gift I made for her, and I do hope she likes it. Click the read more to see the whole painting.

RttE: When Darkness Falls

Alright, as promised I am going to continue with my reviews! I just re-watched this episode, and I must say I enjoyed it quite a lot the second time. Nothing overly deep or dramatic, but it is really just nice to sit through! Read on to see my overall opinion.

Home again!

Alright! I am home again after my long summer trip. I can probably say with a fair amount of certainty that I will be blogging more consistently now... at least until school starts back for me in one month. I can say that I will almost certainly have a new digital painting finished before the end of the month, and I am going to go back and watch the new episodes over again so that I can finish writing reviews for them! Thanks for your patience, and I hope you are all doing well! (By the way, I made the above gif :) )
