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

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

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!
