I like elves

Okay, so for my final project at university (I'm on an art course in case any of you weren't paying attention), I'm aiming to create a short, animated sequence based around the last two albums from one of my favourite bands Rhapsody *cough*OfFire*cough* that will resemble something like a film trailer.
For those that haven't heard Rhapsody before or don't know much about them, they're a power metal band whose entire discography is based on one continuous story. Very high-fantasy, very symphonic and often very cheesey. Also Christopher Lee now does the narration for them, which is of course, awesome.

As part of my preparation work, I've put together an animatic for one of the scenes I'd potentially like to use in the finished piece, part of the song "The Mystic Prophecy Of The Demonknight". A bit sketchy, but it basically does the job. Click on the screenshot to view it (or "right-click/save-as").

Should be uploading some concept art for the characters in the near future. Until then, enjoy!

Christopher Lee is the greatest man ever made. Ever
