Forbidden Friendship by reikohattori Forbidden Friendship by reikohattori
UPDATE: please check out the newer version of this! Forbidden Friendship Painting

EDIT: i added an overlay layer to make the foreground and background seem more 'together' :)

Hey guys! So I AM alive. And I actually had time to draw (what is this madness?! Time? For MYSELF?) lol. And I'm desperately in love with HTTYD so...this is the product of obsession. I'm really proud of this. If you'll look into my gallery it's a marked improvement over anything I've done so far (that I've actually posted) and is digital. Please critique nicely!!
And...my backgrounds! Woohoo! I see a marked improvement if I do say so myself :iconsobeautifulplz:

If you love HTTYD then please leave comments BEFORE you fav! :iconhiccupplz:

The dragon scale texture is a free stock one I found online. That's the only texture I used because dragon scales are really hard... :iconsighingplz:

Tools
Paint Tool Sai (all rendering and coloring)
Photoshop Elements 8 (extra details)

Toothless and Hiccup (c) DreamWorks

It's so realistic looking! PLUS! That's one of my favorite tracks on the HTTYD soundtrack, if you pulled the name from that. If not, that's still cool though!

Wow! So pretty, and well done! 8D What program did you use? ^^ (Oh gee, I such I derp. XD I faved, then read the description, and NOW I leave a comment.... -.-" Alwell. x3) Anyhow, the colors are great! No light where there shouldn't be any, and it's done just right, too! =3 I'm still learning the light thing...it's gotta be one of the hardest things I do in a picture, but still one of the most fun. XD (Are there any methods you use that may be able to help meeeee? :meow: If it's hard for you to explain it, then that's ok! ^W^)



And I love HTTYD too! O^O <3

haha thank you for the wonderful comment! :iconiloveyouplz:
so kind!!
anyway, I used Paint Tool SAI for the drawing and painting part of it, then Photoshop Elements 8 for adding the awkward dragon scale texture. Oh, and I used a custom brush in Photoshop for Hiccup's vest thing.
Light is fun! You just need to practice with it. Make sure your light source is strong and look at your reference a LOT. I simply painted the lights and shadows on one layer, then added an overlay (new layer -> overlay option) of the brighter stuff over it. that's why it looks kind of shiny ^^ :iconyayzplz:
any other questions? :D

Aw, you're so welcome! :aww:

Ug! Lucky! XD I really want SAI now, too. X3 I mean, I really like Photoshop, but....just....erg. X3 Plus, I've seen more people use SAI, so I kinda know how to use it better. :iconsrstoothlessplz: Figures. XD At least I know my elements one might have that same dragon scale texture, I guess! :XD:

Yes it is! 8D Oh, yeah, practice all de time! :XD: (Dim sources are fun to do too. :meow: I did a dimish source in a secret santa pic I did, and even though I don't LOVE how it came out, I DO love how the LIGHTING came out...most of all how it looks on Toothy's scales. x3 And the light was just a few unseen candles. =3)

Shiny is best! :happybounce:

Just one! ^^ In SAI, whenever you make a new layer, unless you tell it otherwise, it, like, NEVER has what's on the new layer show up over the other one, right? I can't get mine to do that in Photoshop E 9...do you possibly know how to? =3 I've tried hitting the lock thing and all that, and it didn't work. T^T)

If I could edit my last comment I'd add this "It's probably because Toothless and Hiccup looks so vibrant and detailed? And I get that the background shouldn't be as saturated, but I think you might've overdone the unsaturated look a bit." LOL forgot to put that there ^^;

Oh my Beetle Jesus this was one of my favorite scenes of HTTYD besides the flying scene lol. I absolutely love how you did Hiccup and Toothless, but the background... not as much. But then, I don't really have a right to say that, I hardly even draw a background at all :XD:
A really nice drawing though! ♥
