The Art of How to Train Your Dragon 2

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame - By Linda Sun­shine [New­mar­ket Press, $45]

You al­ready know that DreamWorks’ up­com­ing se­quel to its hugely pop­u­lar CG adap­ta­tion of Cres­sida Cow­ell’s dragon-rid­ing world will in­volve high-fly­ing feats, strange new lands, even stranger drag­ons and plenty of scaly sit­u­a­tions. Now, just imag­ine how many in­cred­i­ble ideas, de­signs, crea­tures and lo­ca­tions the team dreamed up that never made it to the screen. With more than 300 paint­ings, draw­ings, sketches, mod­els, stills, stud­ies and sto­ry­boards to pore over, Sun­shine’s de­fin­i­tive guide will take you on an artis­tic jour­ney be­hind the scenes, from the ice caves of Berk to the fan­tas­ti­cal flights of Hic­cup and Tooth­less. An in­tro­duc­tion by writer/di­rec­tor Dean DeBlois and fore­word by Ger­ard But­ler, the voice of Vik­ing chief Sto­ick, don’t hurt ei­ther.
