Annie award-winning animator Nicolas Marlet has lent his unique talents to the new Dreamworks' release "How to Train Your Dragon" opening this weekend.  The French animator has been a part of the studio for 15 years on a number of feature films including "Kung Fu Panda" on which he designed the full cast of characters.

Preferring traditional medium over digital, Marlet fills pages as he studies every twist and turn of his densely detailed and pondered creations.  They are wildly charming works with his own distinct wispy lines about them.  It has been a treat to comb the pages of the "Art of Train Your Dragon" book seeing many of Marlet's visions unfold.  Below are some shots from the book with more to be seen here

I cannot wait to see what magic did NOT make the book as we welcome many of the film's contributors for a special insight behind the film this Sunday.  Learn more

***UPDATE: We are pleased to offer this exclusive limited edition sketchbook release by the artist here
