the Big IV (fantasy version) by PixelMagus the Big IV (fantasy version) by PixelMagus
I loved the idea of the idea of Rise of the Brave Tangled Guardians (not of a fan of the name though), but I never really understood the "why". My friend Kate said to think of them like classes in a fantasy game; Ranger(Merida), beast master(Hiccup), healer(Rapunzel) and mage(Jack Frost). To which I then said to myself "welp, now I need to draw this."

I liked adapting the character designs but I wanted to try and keep true to the colors but didn't want to just cut and paste everything. I was hoping to have this done sooner, I altered Hiccup's design drastically since the line layer was done prior to his redesign for HttyD 2. Overall I'm pretty happy with this and hope you guys enjoy.

First, I'd like to say that I've never done this before. I love the way you designed the characters, the outfits show who they are. Though I wish you shaded a little more. Don't take me so seriously: I'm not an artist. It would also be nice for a sort of island back round. Also I would like to say that your eyes are beautiful. The way you drew the hair styles are so cute. But I have to say Hiccup looks a little derpy with the hair style. Overall I hope this helps you. Best of luck in the future!

Its a fandom called Rise of the Brave Tangled Guardians where it takes those four series and mashes them into one universe.  I just heard of it and never understood it until my friend put it in the class perspective of the ranger, the beastmaster, the cleric and the sorcerer.

I sure enjoy this! Though I'm not to sure about the "why" of the fandom of Big 4 either. But I have to come to like them anyway thanks to pictures like this!

It's defiantly a unique idea since it can never happen in reality so it's fun to see what people have come up with.

Yeah but he's a black mage so he can't take physical damage well.

This is really good! I'm impressed how well you put this together. I can imagine this would make a very good story, but it is your picture, after all. ^^

Personally, I think the group name is too wordy. I perfer to call them the Big Four ^^;

I would love to share this on my ROTBTD tumblr!! Do you have a version already posted on tumblr that I could re-blog? If not, would I be able to post it there with your permission, including full credit and links back to your page here? No worries if you would prefer that I didn't but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask :)

Why is it Big Four? Doesn't Toothless count as well?

That's just another name that was given to them on Tumblr. Toothless doesn't count, its supposed to be just Merida, Rapunzel, Jack and Hiccup but I couldn't but Hiccup in the picture as a beast master and not give him his dragon.
