Dreamworks "How To Train Your Dragon"





I am so fortunate to have worked on this film because it is a good one! My assignment was to provide alternative dragon concepts other than what the fabulous Nicolas Marlet had already accomplished. I knew trying to compete with Nico would be next to impossible, so I based my dragon designs on recognizable animals such as the giraffe. Some of these designs made it in the "Art Of How To Train Your Dragon" book now available on amazon. Next to Nico's designs, another favorite of mine is a 'chicken-legged dragon' designed by Tony Siruno also in the book.
