DreamWorks is coming out with a new movie in March of 2010 called “How to Train Your Dragon”. Now as you know I am a big dragon lover and when I heard that this movie was coming out, I just had to do a lesson on one of the dragons from the flick. So, having said that, let me say that you will learn “how to draw Toothless”. Night Fury's given name is Toothless, and he is the black colored dragon in the movie and from the description on the official website, Night Fury is the rarest, and smartest dragon species. His dark colored hyde really stands out against it's yellow colored eyes. Although this beast is supposed to be a dragon, he has the face of an imp or something like that. I think the wings, and tail is a wicked cool design for this character. In the movie Night Fury has the largest wing to body ratio out of all the dragons in existence making him the fastest, highest and longest flying dragon. Toothless is accompanied by Hiccup, a young Viking teenager that is what you call the "black sheep" of his tribe. Hiccup goes on a journey of his lifetime, and experiences a world through the eyes of a dragon. The story seems really interesting and it’s actually based on the book written by “Cressida Cowell”. As soon as the movie is released, I will be the first in line to watch it. I know it’s going to be good because it’s by the same studio that made Shrek, Madagascar, and King Fu Panda. I know for a fact that you will all enjoy this lesson on “how to draw Toothless, step by step”. How to Train Your Dragon is bound to be a big hit, and when it becomes popular, you will already have taught yourself the skill to drawing the dragons from the movie. Peace out gang, and have a happy day!
