"No, no, no, stop. Please, don't cry."
"I told you-- I told
you not to go."
"You did...but you know I had to."
"You can be so stupid sometimes."
"...Guess I'm not all there, huh?"
It was a long and strange train of thought that led me to the idea for this image. It was in part coming off of the last image I did, then thinking about Ruffnut saying she wanted a scar in the movie, then me wanting to tackle the situation in an irregular way, switching the tables so that the person not physically hurt or scarred seems more emotionally affected by it. I don't even really know what happened to Ruff, it was just this moment that popped in my head. And don't worry, it'll probably be self-contained, so Ruffnut won'
t be missing an arm every time I draw her from now on.
And I obviously don't know anything about how to apply bandages, so Astrid's doing her best.
Textures for BG form a myriad of sources that I didn't keep track of. Sorry!EDIT:
Fixed Ruff's face a little. And I've just noticed this is the fourth HTTYD fanart whose title starts with the word 'not.' And it hasn't been on purpose, I swear! XD
