This is technically only the first half of what I wanted to do, but now I'm not sure if I will continue. As always, finding the time is tricky and I kinda like how it ends now. I started with the continuation, which you can see at the end of the last shot:
Regarding the music, the Kickstarter says that Disasterpeace will be doing the music for it so I was trying to find a track of his that would fit tempo wise. The track I chose is "Prologue" from "Rise of the Obsidian Interstellar".
