What always amuses me with this one was the slight expansion on previous stories that she was testing a new ion drive when falling into a space warp.
Since you mentioned Ceres, as an adult I always thought of Ceres and the Grimalkin (from the Filmation episode "Cat and the Spider") were twin entities. Their statues were similar, they had somewhat similar backstories...
I love the little cameo by Teclar in the issue. And Skeletor's "Kingdom? Hey what?" moment while he's helping King Hiss is priceless.
Also, I really love the UK comics for the character bits, something no other printed MOTU media really had before MVComics. Even if they did go a little overboard on the comedy at times.
And yes, Ceres looked cool, and scary considering he could threaten both Eternos and Snake mountain.
Love syklone's origin, the whole Anwat-La/Gar aspect of your stories is one of my favourites...
Also cannot fault a 'return' to Marlena's Filmation origin(?) all that's missing is her Filmation hair :hmwink:
These are great! Is BOE still happening though? please say yes!
Amazing work as always. I really love Scorpia's bio and wondered if you made up her origins. Also, I wondered why you chose to create some of her features as a mutation and whether you contemplated her scorpian items as armour given Hordak's preference for technology?
Lastly, any chance of seeing Peekablue in a similar style of your Indian styled Castaspella? I think it could look great in your hands.
Keep up the great work!
I don't remember if Scorpia's origin was given before or not, I based it on the Medusa myth because that seemed appropriate for her and lots of fans have suggested something like that for years. Count Sneer and Crimson Fury are from a UK magazine story that featured Scorpia as the main villain.
The nod to Medusa in Scorpia's bio is great! And Queen Marlena looks beautiful! Again, great work on all of these! It's a great and fun mix of the canons. Thank you for sharing.
Since we know Filmation MOTU and Bravestarr were placed in the same universe, are there any chances to see your take on Marschall Bravestarr some day? :hmwink:
He and Rio Blast could have had visited the same Space Marshall Academy for instance....
Your art and your bios are amazing. :D
Hey, gbagok, I noticed some spelling and grammar errors (you don't have to take my advice, but I would like to offer it):
Stratos is a brave honorable warror allied with King Randor.
Stratos is a brave, honorable warrior allied with King Randor.
In Zodac's bio: the comma should be a semi-colon:
...to become a Cosmic Enforcer; beings tasked...
Also, isn't Masque a Lord?
Count Marzo's bio: Witness is missing the second s.
Pyroah's bio: loyalty is missing the y.
Lodar's bio: insited should be incited. Essence is missing the c.
Horde Prime's bio: there should be a semi-colon: "Ancients; the celestial beings"
Moss Man's bio: the "Ancients'" does not need the apostrophe. Aide should be aid. It's a tricky one because if you said "Moss Man is an aide" that would be correct, but you're using it in the sense of help, which is aid.
Illumina's bio: no comma is needed here: "Illumina, revealed herself..." Should lieutenant have a capital "L" like the capital "C" on Captain or no, since it's a lower rank?
Webstor's bio: there should be a comma inbetween advanced and dominant.
Shadow Weaver's bio: needs comma: Now, seemingly the...
Tytus' bio: After He-Ro's death, <- comma needed. ...for his heir; <- semi-colon instead of comma. Incorporating should be incorporated.
Strobo's bio: aide should be aid (both times).
Not trying to be nit-picky, just trying to help! :) I stopped at Strobo. I'll continue if you want me to.
I can't believe you did this! Could I have a link to the Scorpia art file? I would like to use it for my stats card, this version is awesome, and you wrote a great bio. Had no idea you were a fan of her. Your bio makes her feel almost like Medusa.
Also noticed that you added classic art headshots to your bio pages. That's great! Love this stuff!
If anyone recgonizes these, feel free to jump in with the info!
gbagok: I'm also interested in learning where did
you grab those oldskool-arts of
- Queen Marlena
Really love your pics and bios.
Any chance you can add Whiplash, Multi-Bot and Leech? In your own time.
Webstor is my fav so far
Oooo! The classic portraits are a nice touch.
Man, those are great, I love them
I'm glad people are liking the classic art! I wanted to show off that everyone has appeared officially in MOTU before (and not always in cartoons). If anyone sees a non-cartoon appearance of Fangman or Lizard Man, I'd love to use that too!
Scorpia's pic, along with some details from her bio, comes from the UK magazine story The Crimson Fury.
Keclar's pic is a sketch of Sir Alec Guiness. And it appeared in the UK story The Third Sword (as did Horde Prime's old school picture).
Anyway, here's a few more to kick off September.
Love that Shokoti bio, awesome stuff.
This is a nice treat my friend, & your starting September off with a BANG!!
