Gobber meets Thor

Here's a sequence I wrote, (along with John Puglisi) and boarded for the "Legend of the Boneknapper" DVD. Gobber is telling a tall tale to the kids about one of his encounters with the Boneknapper. He starts the scene being trapped under the Dragon's foot. It stayed pretty close to what I did but we had to cut the Hammerhead Yak spraying milk. :(

Thanks all!

Andreas- Yah, these are certainly more "animated" than I would normally board. I loved this scene, and since I was also the character designer I wanted to put a little more razzle dazzle in it.
