How to Train Your Dragon 2

Guess what I've been working on the last few months! How to Train Your Dragon 2 won't be in theaters until 2014, but I am already letting you know that it is going to be one of the best movies we've ever done. It's really going to be something you haven't seen before in an animated feature. I've had the privilege and pleasure of getting to bring Toothless back to life for the sequel with a completely overhauled surfacing and shader setup. Toothless was originally surfaced by the ever talented Jeremy Engleman, but with a new pipeline, software tools, and for story reasons we had to update Toothless (and all the characters)for the new movie. So if you don't like the new look, you know who to blame. Hopefully I did him justice. The new look just got approved and is ready to go into production. (this pic isn't the new look fyi).
