How to Train Your Viking by Crownflame

This picture made me chuckle, and lately I’ve really needed that, so I just had to share.  This is one of the images from a series called How to Train Your Viking (No.22) by American deviantartist Crownflame.  Apparently, “The trick is to not make eye contact.”  🙂 This next one is much larger, and poor…

Hiccup and Toothless by Ben Diez

I ran across this cute interpretation of Hiccup and Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon by American professional artist Ben Diez, posting as phation, and just had to share.  It’s not the typical version of one of my all-time favorite dragons (he’s giagantic!), but it’s certainly adorable, and reminds me of a Pokemon just a…

My little Toothless reminder…
