I love your drawings of "How to Train Your Dragon". Could you tell me that references did you use? From where did you get?

TsaoShin Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you so much!  I usually don't use references for my HTTYD work.  I've drawn toothless so many times that I just wing it at this point :)
