HTTYD2: Unexpected Gifts by Auro-Cyanide HTTYD2: Unexpected Gifts by Auro-Cyanide

First up I’m going to apologise for my sense of humour… i’m not great with jokes… ahem.

Anyway, I remember seeing a bunch of comments referencing the ‘Breast Hat’ from HTTYD after Valka’s reveal because obviously there was an issue with proportions there. I know in the original film it would have been based on Nico Marlet’s original sketches of Valhallarama, but I thought I would do something to explain it now that Valka is in the picture instead.

Stoick inherited his terrible taste in gifts. I’m sure we all have those relatives that give us, ah, interesting articles of fashion as presents. Last Christmas my aunt gave me a pair of size 11 rainbow cowboy slash rain boots. I’ve been a size 6 since I was like 14. I’m still not sure what to do with those.

I imagine that armour would have ‘accidentally’ and ‘tragically’ been damaged in a dragon attack when Valka arrived on Berk ‘unfortunately’ rendering it unwearable. Thus it was made into two helmets, one for Stoick and one for their future child.

This started off as a sketching exercise… which then turned into an inking exercise which then turned into a toning exercise which then turned into a detail exercise which then turned into a comic composition exercise AND NOW I HAVEN’T ACTUALLY GOTTEN ANY BETTER AT SKETCHING GDI

I was thinking of doing a short comic about Valka’s and Stoick’s wedding if anyone was interested… I guess I find these characters and their story really interesting because it’s so complex and something I really haven’t seen often.

I should actually go do real life stuff now being an adult and all.

I figured Stoick wouldn't have a beard in his youth.

Ah, that's not Stoick :) I set this before Valka came to Berk so it's just another random Viking.

Though given the backflash in HTTYD2 where Stoick had a full on beard while Hiccup was a baby, and you would think there wouldn't be a /huge/ time difference between when they got married and when they had Hiccup I would say Stoick would have had a beard when he married Valka. Knowing him he would have almost had one at 10 XD

This is actually my headcannon - the breast plate was a gift from Stoick's father ^_^
