Here we have a short time lapse video showing all the steps needed to paint the very large Gronckle dragon animatronic figure. As you can see, the Gronckle is much bigger in the How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular show than it is in the movie version. Impressive creature in any event. One has to wonder how it can fly with those stubby little wings. And it’s amazing to see how many layers of paint are needed to create the look they were after. I found it difficult to count all the layers, but there seemed to be several dozen passes over the whole body in order to complete the paint job. And this just the paint for one of the 24 dragons that will be in the show! How many layers of paint did you see in this video?
