I drew this because :iconandy-meatball: makes me squee. :D

This is a scene from her wonderful and adorable fanfiction, Hunting For Trolls.

First chapter: [link]
Chapter this pic is from (fourth): [link]

Read it. It's short and sweet, and you too will squee. :love:

[EDIT] - Sadly, Hunting For Trolls is no longer available at this time----apologies, friends. :( - [END EDIT]

My gosh, I think I got a little carried away.... I haven't had a Photoshop to play with in well over a decade....

....

Man, I can't believe I did a computer color-job.... This is my first one!

Andy! Thanks for writing such cute stories! You've broken my anti-computer-art curse! :hug:

*EDIT* -- *lol* I just realized I think I messed up Hiccup's boot colors. ^^; Ah well. Maybe I'll fix it later. Maybe I won't. :)


Colored wif a mouse. :B


....graaaaphiiiiiite....

This picture is so drop dead precious!! Unfortunately, I wish I could've read the story behind it. Anyways, is that Hiccup's daughter? She looks adorable. =)

Awww, thanks! :aww:

Yeah, unfortunately the dear friend of mine who wrote the story is.... no longer here, so.... :(

The little girl is actually Astrid's cousin. :D She and Hiccup went out hunting for trolls, but.... she got herself a little too tuckered out. :blushes:

Aoh yes.... :( Gyah, maybe I should fix that link; I guess it hasn't worked since !andy-meatball left. :cries:

But I'll just say Hiccup and Freckle (Astrid's little cousin) were out and about hunting for trolls.... and Freckle got pretty tuckered out, as she's something of a sickly little girl (she didn't tell Hiccup about this straight away; she didn't want him to know....). So Hiccup had to carry her back home before she got any worse. _

Glad you like the picture! :)

oh well, it's ok if you can't get it, but that does sound like a really cute story, so thanks for the summary anyways :) and it seriously reminds me of my little cousin. It even looked like her too in the picture...creepy, lol =P

OKAY. I'M BACK.
I am on a squee-high right now because of this. It was so unexpected and happyful!
I love Freckle's little head! And the little daisies in the corner! And the lighting in the background! *starts speaking in crazy words like Freakazoid*

Eeeheeheeheehee! ^_^ I feel all warm and fuzzy right now.

Srsly, reading chapter four, my muse just poked and poked and poked and poooookked at my brain until I was like.... "Okay! ^_^ I'll humor it!"

I hadn't even unpacked all my drawing stuff; it was all right there in my Bag Of Holding on the couch.... handy! Took it out, let the pencil run around, did some ink, scanned, colored.... it happened so fast! Usually it takes me forever to do something like this! But I got it done in one day!

ONE DAY!!!

^_^

I'm as giggly off this picture as you are I think. Because I've never done computer-art before---Thanks so much for inspiring me to new art forms!!! :glomp::dummy::love::D:cuddle::la::XD::dance::tighthug:

...*le gasp* NEVER?
But--but it's too awesome--
GAAA!
I feel very special that I inspired you. And by all means, continue with this new, exploratory art form, because this you did a bang-up job.
...Bang-up doesn't exactly sound like a compliment, does it?
How about....first-rate,... or capital.
You did a first-rate, capital, bang-up job.
Pip-pip! Cheerio! :icontophatplz:

Hm, maybe I shouldn't say never.... I mean, I've doodled a bit and made myself frustrated with my tablet before (see my answer to question one of the meme @_@). But this is the first time I've tried coloring an already-done ink outline. ^_^ I think I like this technique! :love:

andy-meatball Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2010
Ah. Upon revisiting the link to your meme I see that not only are you good at drawing with tablets, you are also good at drawing pictures of them.
:clap:
*heehee* I am going to walk up to random people and say, "How many people have you inspired recently? Huh? HUH?"

Actually, the fact that you drew that with a MOUSE is more impressive to me because I can't do that to SAVE MY LIFE. I am amazed at people that can do that. I tried painting a sunset with a mouse yesterday because my tablet wasn't immediately on hand, and I almost cried.
And you still have the drawing pictures of tablets skill down. :lol:

Aw, you are too kind to me! :D

Hahhhhhh.... someday I'll beat that stylus into submission.... but until that time, the mouse does an okay job of doing my bidding. :XD:
