What started off as a conversation on facebook about my friend Maki Roll asking people “what should she wear as a costume?” and me saying “Taarna from 1981’s Heavy Metal” has turned into a full blown experiment in artwork,cosplay and artist alley commerce where Maki is going to build a Taarna costume and I will create artwork of her as the character with the classic bird/steed that Taarna rides around on. Our plan is to jointly debut and sell this as a print at Awesome Con May 29-31 in Washington DC at my Artist Alley Table with Maki being dressed at Taarna for the event!
So check out Maki’s fan page on facebook here and her website store is here.
Here are the final pencils for the project…
Below are my figure studies for Maki and the Bird
