Part 1 of the Sauron's and Ar-Pharazôn's dialogue storyboard from the "Downfall of Númenor" chapter, from "The Silmarillion". (The second part won't be done yet for some time, so here it is...)
yes to all
This is great. Sauron is very handsome and agile, and it suits him. I agree that this is very animatable(?), it's smooth and suave. My favorites are the fourth and fifth panels.
I like how handsome and graceful Sauron is. Evil often appears to be attractive.
Thank you (sorry for the late answer) : I think you guessed right about him. That's certainly the reason he's so interesting to draw (this character is plenty of contradictions indeed)
I can see this animated already, there's a wonderful flow to this.
