How To Train Your Dragon 2 - Concept Art
i bought this art book, and it is so fantastic! i never get tired of looking at these illustrations, they’re so well done and atmospheric.
in the book, the lead artists and producers describe a trip they took to norway and svalbard for inspiration. they said the vastness of the landscapes, the sense of untouched wilderness around them, the low arctic lighting, and the spectacular colors you can’t find anywhere else on earth were a huge influence, and they really wanted to bring those things to the movie.
i think they did an amazing job!
