You love them.
You hate them.
You'll NEVER ESCAPE THEM.
Oh gads it's like some unholy breed of Power Rangers.... Flapping in at number five on Contraltissimo's DeviantArt How To Train Your Dragon DVD Countdown List of RIDICULOUSNESS
.... Featuring the Red Green Death, now with duct tape.... here comes the
Anthro Attack!(....Which isn't exactly a fitting title, as these are technically zoomorphs, not anthropomorphs. But hey for the sake of the concept anyway....)AHEM!
Anthros. You see them all over DeviantArt, in every size and form you can think of. They've flown, galloped and slithered their way into every fandom imaginable, and when How To Train Your Dragon arrived on the scene.... it was no exception.
Indeed, it would
be most intriguing if our animal pets had opposable thumbs, or could walk upright, or could speak to us.... or if we humans could fly on wings of our own, or had big fuzzy swiveling ears, or could stroll on zygodactyl toes--quite handy over rough terrain I daresay.
But for better or worse, the phenomena of anthropomorphization and zoomorphization have definitely scratched out their own bits of territory in the HTTYD universe.And the DVD comes out in
5...Start the countdown over!
orGo on with the count!Yeah I had to watch like a half a dozen episodes of Gargoyles before I drew this. .... Oh man I am not proud of this. Except maybe the shield. I'm proud of that. And Snotlout's wing. And Red's face; I'm pleased with how that came out. And maybe Astrid's limb-design; that was fun, how she has just the two little claws, there. And maybe the twins, too. And all the crazy legs and tails back behind, with the crazy details, and.... .... Okay, I guess I'm a little proud of it.Yay Contraltissimo survived drawing this picture! [[EDIT]]
- For those wondering who the heck that guy in the hat is, the original Red Green Death can be found here
