He-Man: The Prophecy Of The Legend

Image
Here is my painting "He-Man: The Prophecy Of The Legend", made 2016. It is the recreation of the last page of the very classic minicomic "King Of Castle Grayskull" as a huge oil painting 80/120 cms (about 31,5 x 47,2 inches). The original art was made by Alfredo Alcala 35 years ago. The painting's title is taken from the original page text itself, witch you can see here: www.he-man.org/assets/images/collect_toy/mastersuniversecomic22.jpg As always I put in some easter eggs and hommages. You can find Tri Klops there for example, directly taken from a famous promo Poster by William George. An interesting question was how to paint the spirit of Grayskull. In the original artwork it is more like smoke that has the shape of a skull. But I didn't want it to look like the dark mark from Harry Potter. I listened to a german audio play, when the narrator exactly told me how to solve it. "A skull seemed to waft amidst a reddish smoke cloud." Sometimes…

"On Top Of Grayskull - A Skeletor Portrait" is my recreaton of page 2 of "King Of Castle Grayskull", one issue of the very first edition of MOTU mini-comics. Here is the original page: www.he-man.org/assets/images/collect_toy/mastersuniversecomic01_full.jpg Of course done in oldschool classic style, oil on canvas, 70 x 100 cm (approx. 27.6 x 39.5 inches).

"King He-Man" - Oil Painting / Live Panel at Grayskull Con 2015

Image
My latest painting.

2 years ago a "King He-man" Figure has been released. When I saw it I knew what to to. In early developement stages He-Man once was supposed to be Conan. Both ended up as a bearded King now... So it was totally obvious to me. The famous still of the classic "Conan the Barbarian" with Arnold Schwarzenegger was my inspiration, I made an exact recreation of that pose.




His old weapons by his side, in ths Vision He-Man is now an older but still strong warrior, his face tells us that he went through a lot during his life. The weapons on the right include an easter-egg in fact, they are arranged in the same way when He-Man saw them the very first time in the first Mini-Comic by A. Alcala.


The circle now is complete.

I painted this piece live at Grayskull Con 2015.

And here is the result.
Oil on Canvas, 70 x 100 cm (approx. 27,5 x 39,4 inches)






Guarding The Safety Of Eternia - The He-Man Cardback Motive

Image
It is time. Here is the finished piece.


"Guarding the Safety of Eternia" is a recreation of the ionic He-Man cardback motive, you can see the original illustration by Errol MaCarthy right here:


I painted it with oils on canvas, it has a size of 80/120 cms (about 31,5 x 47,2 inches). Countless details have been added into the landscape, there is Grayskull of course, you can see Point Dread and the Talon Fighter, Zoar, Battle Ram, the Grayskull Standart... just to name a few.


I dedicate this panting to the great Earl Norem, who died jthis year. He was one of the greatest MOTU artists and his artwork was an important inspiration for me to make these paintings of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.


Thanks to all supporters!



Oil Painting: "Guarding the Safety of Eternia" - The Classic He-Man Figure Packaging Cardback Graphic

Hello there!



My new project has begun – I am actually working on my new painting.

Once more I choose a very very classic He-Man motive you could know.





Of course there will be some changes. I will give much more details to the background, a wide view over Eternias landscape – including a distal Castle Grayskull – will be one of the aspects. This will be a daylight painting, but since there will be much space I added the moons at the sky, too.
