Masters of the Universe by MikeDimayuga Masters of the Universe by MikeDimayuga
commish for rob.

i was a HUGE he-man geek back in the 80's. then i got too many toys and the drive just evaporated. in any case, it was a pleasure to draw. the nostalgia brought back lots of good memories...

for this pic i wanted to do something classic and striking, so i decided to get inspiration from frazetta. the poses are from one of his princess of mars paintings, but the colors are all me (unfortunately!).

I love the whole Frank Frazetta and Robert E. Howard vibe I am getting from this. VERY Conanesque in all the right ways. Like the original He-Man mini-comics back when He-Man was a barbarian and not a prince... and Teela was a goddess, not just Man-At-Arms' daughter. Brilliant piece that caprtures the flavor of a forgotten chapter in the history of these characters! Nostalgia indeed.

I wouldn't say "unfortunately" about the colors! They're very evocative of the 4 color process comics packaged with the figures and largely why I clicked for a larger view. Great piece and successful in creating that sense of nostalgia integral to the subject matter.

thank you so much! as you can tell, i'm very insecure with my color work, so i can't express how satisfying hearing your opinions is.

Looks like He-man's sword has a jewel in it. Does that make it actually She-Ra's sword ?

that's true. sometimes i'm envious of some of the shows kids these days take for granted, and sometimes i feel sorry for them for the utter crap they're fed. those disney sitcoms are ROUGH. yeesh.
