Yesterday I went to a panel of Dreamworks artists who worked on 'How to Train your Dragon' at Nucleus. The panel consisted of Alessandro Carloni, Pierre Olivier Vincent, Simon Otto, and Nicolas Marlet. The overall presentation was great and funny, and all four of them seemed like really nice guys, I only wish Nicolas spoke up more. I'm a big fan of his work, but he was the quietest one there!
I wish I could work at Dreamworks with those guys, but it seems like you have to be European to be truely awesome artist. All four of them had thick French and Italian accents! I'm so jealous that I was born here instead of there! In the end, I got my book signed by all of them, it was a great panel for a great movie. If anyone out there hasn't seen it yet, I highly recommend it! I especially loved Toothless' character animation acting like a cat. It was just like Itty Bit! I couldn't help myself doodling her as a dragon.
