This is my design of the “FIREWORM” dragon in episode 8 "Portrait of Hiccup As A Buff Man" with and without fire fx that I did for the DreamWorks Marketing Division as well as the series. They asked me to create a fire effect which was then used in the series! I really liked how the Fire FX turned out! The Fireworm is found in large groups and has the ability to superheat its skin burning everything it touches. They also appear in episode 18 "Gem Of A Different Color".
*tune-in tonight 7:30p on Cartoon Network to watch season 2 "Defenders of Berk" episode 2 "The Iron Gronckle".
