There is only three more days left before Friday arrives. I say this because a very interesting movie is coming to theaters on that day called “How to Train Your Dragon”. Early on I drew and submitted two of the characters that are the main stars, Hiccup the Viking, and Night Fury the dragon. Today I will be teaching you “how to draw Astrid”, who is Hiccup's love interest in the film. Like Hiccup, she is a Viking, but unlike Hiccup, she is strong willed, tough, and very competitive. Astrid is the one who figures out that Hiccup is up to something, and because she gains suspicion, she wants to see what exactly her timid fellow Viking is up to. For a female, Astrid is determined as other Vikings that live in the village. You see, the reason why Hiccup is so different from the rest of the tribe is because he is not a heroic dragon slayer like others of his kind. That is why it is so easy for Astrid to pick up on his odd behavior and follow him to figure out what exactly he is hiding. When she finds out, she is taken for a ride of her life. Now because the movie is not even out yet, I can only write a description on things I've learned by watching the trailers. It's like I'm piecing together a story that I'm trying to understand. When you want to "draw How to Train Your Dragon characters", remember there is a story behind every face whether it be a dragons, or a Vikings. I think you will enjoy this lesson because drawing Astrid Hofferson, (that's her last name), is going to be a breeze. I will return with another character from the “going to be popular” movie, and this time it's not going to be another Viking. Have fun guys, and remember to comment and vote. Peace out people, and happy drawing!
