....Hmm, the upload seems to have killed the colors a bit....

[EDIT] - Just took a straight up screenshot right out of Photoshop Elements.... colors looking much better now. ^_^ - [END EDIT]

Uhm.... right. Y'all remember that line?

Just tryin' to get into Stoick's head here. How would you feel if your only son and heir threw down his newly-gifted helmet and declared in front of your people that he "wasn't one of you"?

How would you feel if he started acting friendly with your lifelong nemesis?

How would that go over with the tribe if some day far in the future this kid is destined to become the chief?

If my boy had been bedeviled by the beasties like that?

....Heck I'd've stopped the fight, too. :|

Photoshop Elements 8

Oh yeah, and cookie points if you spot the reference to one of my fanfics! ;)

Very dark. You really do gotta consider Stoick's feelings here as well. After all it was probably dragons who were responsible for Vallhalarama's death. Regarding the picture it was really well done. Captured the chaos of a dragon raid very well and yet you have Hiccup turning away from it as if he doesn't realize whats happening around him. Overall a nice darker look to a side the movie couldn't show us.

Wow, thank you so much! :D Heh, yes, Stoick often gets a bad rap for "ruining everything" or being too stubborn or refusing to look at or understand the situations.... But I really did want to get into his head. He's been fighting the dragons all his life. He would love nothing more than to rid them from his village and liberate his people from their raids once and for all. It had to be so disturbing the way his baby boy started reaching out toward that big Monstrous Nightmare.... almost friendly-like. :fear:

Heh, glad you can appreciate the dark lens I chose to glance through here for this picture. :D

We can see how well Stoick took that now don't we? Must've hurt losing a son to the enemy, if not in body then in mind.

Dark lenses are fun to explore when you watch something play out the same way over and over. The "what if" factor for HTTYD is very large to me.

Maybe you'd take another look through the tinted lens again sometime? :)

Dark lenses are fun to explore! :giggle:

And yes, there are so many what-ifs to look at. X-)

Oh, I'm sure I will again in the future. :D
