Toothless - The dancing shadow by Gewalgon Toothless - The dancing shadow by Gewalgon

╭━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━╮
Dancing in the wind,
dancing in the moon's light,
trough the endless night,
my heart will be my guide.

╰━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━╯


HannahRivaille asked me to draw Toothless recently, and honestly I already wanted to say that I don't really like to draw him.
But then I watched together with my husband and my sister (She visits me until Monday, that's why I can't respond the next days) the movie today and... and...
Let's say it was very... wet... ;__;
So I couldn't resist to draw him in the end...
I drew him in my style, I really hope you like that! :-)

~ Took me almost exactly 1.30 hours ~

Nice! You really made him look like a real dragon, rather than the cartoonish character. I love this style for Toothless

This is fantastic!  I am in love with your medium.  The way you made this glow in the dark is utterly mesmerizing! Such a perfect way to capture toothless in the darkness.

Toothless looks good in that style. I usually see him in digital only. Nice work. WHat's up?

I draw digitally too, sometimes. But I prefer to draw traditional, I love that much more!

HTTYD and HTTYD 2 (especially the second) really are tearjerkers... while watching the second movie, I had to bite my own finger so I wouldn't just start crying! my face is always a mess when I've cried, and my friend and I would go into the city after watching the second movie and I couldn't walk around with a red face so I had to keep myself from crying.

Yes, I agree!
But well, I couldn't resist and cried in the cinema xD Happily nobody could see me, only my husband and my sister xD
I never liked to cry in front of others...

I don't like it either. I hate showing my emotions either way... for some reason, my brain always mixes up emotions and situations whenever I try to get them out. if I get mad, I start crying as soon as my yelling is over. if I'm happy, I get hyperactive. if I'm sad, I get awful memories and make it worse. sadness is the worst... it breaks me. I've actually had a mental breakdown in school a couple months ago and had to skip a class because I felt so awful. I can never cry during movies because of this as well. maybe I should let it out somehow, but I can't, people will notice. I have a red face for hours after crying.

...sometimes I just hate myself.

Okay, some things you're talking about sound really familiar to me!
...you could try something I do when I am at work or elsewhere where I don't want to show my sad/bad/angry emotions to others.
(And I don't want to fight them again, there was a time where I fighted against my emotions and what happend then... was horrible.
I couldn't feel something anymore for 2-3 years..........)

I just go out to the toilet (Well, sounds weird, but that's a place where you can take 5 minutes for you without being disturbed from others.)
And then I go deep in myself. I wanted to see my emotions, in a form, in a shape.
When I go deep in myself I see my emotions in forms of wolves. In different colours.
For example I see for rage red fired wolfes. For sadness I see deep blue water wolves.
And every emotion has its own wolf-form. Depending on what emotion I have, I use other wolves to calm them down.
For example if I am sad and go deep inside me I see those blue water wolves. I imagine then that I am calling brown earth wolves, wolves of silince, of peace.
And I imagine how they're embracing the water wolves, and taking them back to their cave where they "live".

I don't know if it's helpful for you, but that's what I do and it really helps me.
After I took this 5 minutes for me and did the thing with the wolves I can go back to my work or whatever I did. This way I didn't fight against my emotions, I "listened" to them and calmed them down myself.

Sometimes they come back, but mostly when I am at home and then I can destroy things or cry like an idiot xD
Maybe you find something similiar for your and another shape/form for your emotions. As soon as something like this gets a form for you, you can "work" with it.


By the way.. I don't get that red when I am crying BUT I get red ears and face when I am nervously. xD

But hey, that's okay, nobody is perfect and I think it's really good so :D
Don't hate yourself, you're good the way you are! :-)

I'm usually too late to leave when I feel an anger or sadness fit coming, but I'm working on that. as soon as I can notice it a few minutes ahead, I'll start trying this. thank you for helping.

Interesting version of tothless, like more realistic and a bit more older or mature to my eyes, but cute and adorable like allways anyways x3.
And of course, love how you did it, so good work <33.
