Simon Otto – Character design in “How to train Your Dragon”

I’m a massive fan of both “How to Train Your Dragon” films, mainly because the characters are so well developed, entertaining and believable, and character design and development are an important element in the animation and comics workshops I run.  So I found this interview with Simon Otto, head of character animation at Dreamworks, really fascinating. Have a look if you want some tips on how to create fantastic characters, and find out how Toothless was inspired by his cat and baby boy!
