So I saw Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon last friday and immediately fell in love with everything about it.  As soon as I got home from the theater I ordered the Art of Book, which is full of Nico Marlet's gorgeous drawings on every page.  If you haven't seen this movie yet, stop reading my blog and go now :)  It's definitely the best movie Dreamworks has made so far, and one of my favorite animated movies in general already :)  Here's some Toothless and Hiccup sketches I did, most of them copied from the Art of book to get a grasp on the style for something else I have up my sleeve ;)

The rest of these are just pages from my sketchbook.  Some Robert Downey Jr's for portrait practice, random folks at Starbucks, and so on. Enjoy! :)

Thanks for looking!


  1. Nice stuff janice, Really like the Dragons. Figure at the bottom: try to observe the way the upper arm and forearm connect.

  2. Definitely agree on How to Train your Dragon! Easily Dreamworks' best movie yet. I'm totally ordering the book.

  3. I love your Robert Downey Jr. Portraits! :)
