[S] Rex Duodecim Angelus - Battle of the Black King

The trolls battle to the death with their 12x prototyped Black King in living color with honest-to-god-animation. This is it, the final fight; where shit gets real and nothing, not even breeding the universe frog, takes priority over kicking the ass of the entire dersite army and it’s behemoth of a leader. 

39 months ago, the idea to animate this battle was born in the MSPA forums and against all odds, it steadily grew into the unadulterated masterpiece you see before you.

This was a volunteer project with revolving door of artists and animators, who planned, storyboarded, created assets or short animations, organized and backgrounded.  There was not a whole lot of stability during my time with the project. So I want to give a big shout out to our lead animator Takfloyd, who almost singlehandedly kept things moving forward for the last year and a half after the original crew faded away from the project; and the fantastic Elanor Pam, who likely created more art for this video than anyone else. Their relentless contributions kept us all motivated. (Also giving a little shoutout to BlackHolePA who was just so damned helpful all the time)

Homestucks, today is a good day to be proud of your fandom.

After almost three years, this fan project is finished. Feast your eyes upon the glory. This set is missing quite a few characters, it was too hard to narrow it down to nine gifs. The whole video is a gold mine of character moments.
