I tried to get as close as possible to the style of the cartoon, fully conveying its spirit and mood. I made every effort so that my work would fit the format of the studio and could contribute to the promotion of the franchise in the future. I want to believe that the result matches my words.

I used the textures from :………

Astrid never really had guessed how stressful it would be for her when Hiccup actually started living a life like the heroes of saga!
