TAARNA - Heavy Metal - BIG original animation production cel, Rotation Sequence:
From the ground-breaking animated film Heavy Metal, released in 1981, I am offering several pieces of original production animation art. I have been collecting images and art featuring Taarna, the platinum blond warrior maiden, since the early 1990s. I am offering several superb pieces from my collection in order to raise money to buy an engagement ring. My sacrifices are to your potential benefit!
“Heavy Metal” was a feature-length, fully-animated film comprised of several short stories told using different animation styles for each vignette, and featuring an energetic rock and roll soundtrack. Taarna’s story is the climax, featuring a showdown of good versus evil. This film was rated R, and featured animated nudity prominently. The Taarna sequence begins with the heroine appearing wearing only a cloak, and riding a giant bird. She enters an ancient temple, sheds her cloak, and swims nude across the temple to the spot where her warrior gear awaits. Taarna then dresses for battle in what is known as the Rotation Sequence.
The Rotation Sequence is so named because the viewer’s perspective rotates 360 degrees around Taarna, capturing the scene from every angle. This was accomplished using a rotoscoping technique. Toronto model Carole Desbiens played Taarna, and – wearing a leotard – she donned Taarna’s outfit while being photographed atop a rotating stage. Each photo was then drawn in animation style, and ultimately rendered as a single animated cel / frame for the finished film.
This production animation cel is from the Rotation Sequence, and features Taarna in the midst of dressing. She is affixing her top, and her breasts aren't quite covered - the left nipple is prominently visible. She is seen from an unusual angle - to the side and slightly from above. Her face is downcast, though her eyes are not visible (let's call them "closed" to save any arguement). I have always loved this image, but I'm offering it now for sale. This item is unframed and will be shipped flat.
Please check under my other sales to see everything I am offering!
NOTE: In order to reduce reflections and glare, I have photographed all of these pieces at an angle, which is why some will appear to be somewhat distorted. If you’d like to see larger photos of the items being offered, please write to me and I’ll send you the full sized images via email.
I am starting all of my sales with a very reasonable starting price and . Thank you.
