    Chris Achilleos Heavy Metal Movie Taarna's Mount Preliminary Sketch Original Art Group of 4 (1981). You can see some of the evolution of Taarna's flying mount in this series of designs by the wonderfully talented Chris Achilleos. From a flying lizard with a serpentine head, it changed to the more recognizable "doughy chicken-like" bird creature of the film. These are all graphite on onionskin paper of various sizes. the smallest is 7.5" x 8" (and has a light outline of Taarna astride the beast), while the largest is a big 13" x 23.5". Some pages have some minor folds in the sides (mostly outside the image area), or pinholes in the corners. Two are signed. Overall these are in Excellent condition.
