Well, they say good things come to those who wait, and that was certainly true of my Christmas! I got a couple things after the holiday, and all of them were really fun and right up my alley! So, I'm just gonna post them here as well as some quick, well deserved "thank you"s!

Happy new year everyone! I've got something a little different for you today. Sadly, no HTTYD related stuff, but I will be giving a sort of info dumb on where I am in life at the moment. Aside from that, I do have an art piece that needs explaining (no, I've not joined some sort of Satanic cult, that art piece is basically the sickest final video game boss you could ever meet XP). So, let me dive in.

Well happy birthday Inhonoredglory! Also, happy boxing day to the rest of the world :D
I made this art piece as a gift to my amazing friend and fellow HTTYD fan, Inhonoredglory. It's supposed to be a string of her favorite characters from her many different fandoms, all being pulled whimsically along by the TARDIS. I'll go into the details about the piece in the post bellow, and I'll also put text free versions.

Well, it's that day again! Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you had a lovely holiday. I plan to use this blog post to show the cool stuff I got as well as thank the people who gave me such fun gifts! Anyway, let's hop to it!

So, it’s been a while since I’ve done a full blown analysis post on HTTYD or HTTYD2, but I hope to make up for it with this one! I’ve wanted to write it ever since 2014, but I’ve always been too intimidated or too busy. In this post, I want to talk about to mold-breaking nature of the HTTYD movies, particularly in their “teen vs parent” theme. I think the How To Train Your Dragon franchise has actually pulled off something that most other animated movies treat in a very one-dimensional, almost naive fashion. So, let’s hit this thing running!

Way back when, I was a HUGE fan of Legos. I actually built a pretty cool model of Toothless around a year after the first film, and I decided I'd share the instructions for it on this blog!
If you'd like to see more pictures of the model, you can visit the my mocpages account by going to this address: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/306897
Also, here is a link to some instructions. They are... kinda janky, but if you would rather have a BIG file with my screenshots of how to build this, just leave me a comment below. As moderator of the blog, I can get the email address that is linked to your Disqus account. I'll try and send you a zipped file or something... Idk... there are so many pics!
Ok, so once you download that file, you'll need to download "Lego Digital Designer" to open it. This program can be found pretty easily, it's the first thing that comes up if you search for it in Google. Once you download the application, open this file. You'll be able to generate instructions by clicking a button on the top far left with brick and a 1 and 2 beside them. Use your arrow keys to step through the instructions.
Hope you guys enjoy the model. Let me know if anyone manages to build another one.
Special thanks to Stormbringer for inspiration on the head design!
