Heavy Metal (1981), Taarna Animation Cel
original production material
The Heavy Metal movie featured a series of short vignettes, in varying animation styles with a 70s metal soundtrack, very loosely based on stories from the long running adult illustrated fantasy magazine of the same name. I don't generally collect animation cels, but I do have a couple of nice production cels from this film.
From the last chapter of the movie, and derived from Moebius' silent bird-riding male character Arzach from the magazine, Taarna the breathtakingly gorgeous warrior is seen here donning her gear, before seeking vengeance against the leader of the barbarian horde who exterminated her people.
From Gallery Lainzberg.
Although the characters are not from the same storyline, I display the cells of Taarna and Sternn together, with him to her left, casually looking at her with his smirky smile.
