I made this a long time ago, before 'Dreams' but I realized I never uploaded it here. I didn't consider it amazing (still don't), and after all the hype of HTTYD, this got mistaken as fanart so many times I got mad and apparently threw it aside for a good while. (I love HTTYD, but the timing and coincidence of quirky character/dragon duo was too much for me at the time. xD I feel silly for letting it get to me though, because it's not a big deal. :) )

I remembered this today when uploading things and I wanted to share the grayscale coloring method on here, since it appeared to be helpful for the DeviantART community. This is the original (tweaked after the tutorial-thingy was made) and I hope you like it! It started out as simple practice with grayscale and it turned into something a little more. I believe this took 12 or so hours. Pretty fast, but I was working pretty constant those hours, thanks to live-stream. Again, it's not that amazing, but I still like it for what it is.

As for the characters? I'm not sure who they are, they just sort of appeared. I envisioned the elf kid being a wannabe dragon-rider and the dragon taking amusement in his ambitions, being a mischievous creature. :D
