Okay, so, after like three years of seeing this kind of crap repeatedly submitted to HTTYD groups, and what's more TOTALLY ADORED AND ASSPATTED, I've finally snapped.
I went ahead and made a tutorial of how to become a fandom hero in about 15 seconds, because apparently this is all it takes. Why spend YOUR ENTIRE LIFE learning to draw with all the blood, sweat and tears therein, when you can whip something up in thirty seconds and have all of deviantart singing your praises?
This technique is super effective, especially if you use it on that one Adult Hiccup picture that you've seen a billion jillion times, because that apparently is an aphrodisiac for the fandom at whole or something
ANYWAY. HERE IS A VIDEO TUTORIAL OF HOW TO BE "GREAT": www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJX3A5…
People ADORE screenshots more than original pieces of artwork, and I will never understand that. Never.
