Description



About the Book



Title appears as: The art of DreamWorks How to train your dragon 2.



Book Synopsis



Filled with more than 300 images, the official illustrated tie-in to the second chapter of the DreamWorks Animation critically acclaimed Academy Award(R) nominated How to Train Your Dragon trilogy is based on the characters in Cressida Cowell's bestselling series and features an introduction by the voice of Stoick the Vast, Gerard Butler.

Mirroring the style of the bestselling The Art of How to Train Your Dragon, this outstanding insider's guide introduces fans to the creative process behind the film, from the story and the characters to the visual development art and animation, to the rigging, surfacing, and lighting. The Art of How to Train Your Dragon 2 includes more than 300 concept sketches, preliminary drawings, architectural plans, and digital artwork that reveal how teams of artists bring the Dragon and Viking worlds to life with modern cinematic energy.

Starring the voice talent of the original cast--Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrara, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T. J. Miller, Kristin Wiig--along with Cate Blanchett, Kit Harington, and Djimon Hounsou, this action packed comedy adventure continues the story of Hiccup and Toothless five years after they have successfully united dragons and Vikings on the Island of Berk. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island's new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds.

When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.



From the Back Cover



Here is a look behind the frozen fjords and ice caves of Berk at the making of the sequel to a beloved animated classic. This full-color, lavishly illustrated book features more than 650 paintings, drawings, sketches, models, film stills, lighting studies, color keys, story boards, and photographs. Along with quotes from all the principal filmmakers there is also an introduction by the writer/director Dean DeBlois and a foreword by Gerard Butler, the voice of Stoick.

In this brilliantly conceived sequel, we are on a journey of exploration to new lands, four-winged dragons, long-lost love, vicious and powerful enemies, and ginormous Bewilderbeasts.

How does a movie of such imagination and magnitude come into creation? Well, you begin with an incredibly talented team of artists, writers, engineers, animators, modelers, and tech wizards and you let their creativity soar. The result is a stunning, original vision--bigger, better, and fiercer than ever--of an earth-shattering, fire-breathing sequel to the legendary story of Vikings and dragons in the frozen north.

Hold on to your dragons, fans and friends, you're in for the ride of a lifetime!

Being a tremendous fan of How to Train Your Dragon, I came across this book online and was intrigued. I ordered a copy and was blown away by the art. It was even more than what I expected it to be! Not only is the art phenomenal; the book is filled with various quotes, descriptions, and explanations from the people behind the art and design of the movie. The images are striking in detail and quality--poetry for the eyes. The book includes all sorts of character designs, offers lots of explanation, and provides so many beautiful, emotionally powerful pieces of concept art. I loved it so much that I bought another copy for a friend who loves the movie as much as I do. I have a special love for this book, and I would recommend it to any fan of the movie who enjoys great art! Those who would like to know some more about the background of the movie and its plot would not be disappointed in this book either.
