    Ulisses31: thank you! i'll see what i can do about some NA characters. it might be time to revive my variants-as-new-characters thread!

    Jafari: aww, thanks man! i hope to be a bit more active around here in the next few weeks.

    ALSO, in case anyone missed it, i finally posted the prize art for gbagok's character Predicus Rex, here: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...49#post2907949

    AND it occurs to me that i never shared this:


    i did some commissions for charity in the 2nd half of 2011, and one of the requests was Veena (the Sorceress of King Grayskull's era), on the far right.

    for my motuc display.

    Charlie Brown: thanks! i'd love to see some photos of your display if you have some!

    As promised, here is my take on the toy version of Modulok:



    I added some Horde-emblem armbands to Modulok, but colored them in white rather than the standard red, since Modulok already has plenty of red going on. Also, I envision Modulok as being loyal to Hordak, so the emblems are also a subtle cue that Hordak is beginning to build a faction of loyalists to rebel against his elder brother Horde Prime.

    The Modulok toy came with two heads, so I couldn't resist creating yet another version of the character, utilizing what I always thought of as the alternate head:



    This guy is supposed to have a leaner build than your average Masters of the Universe character--think of a luchador or a cruiserweight wrestler. This calls for a little nerdy character bio, am I right? I'M RIGHT!


    * * *



    PROFILE: Silent, and relatively small in stature, MODUOS hardly appears threatening. However, when his master and clone-father Modulok is threatened, Moduos explodes into action, demonstrating his mastery of exotic grappling maneuvers and acrobatic striking techniques.

    When creating him, Modulok tampered with the development of Moduos's brain, resulting in Moduos being a machine-like drone. Moduos is not protective of his master--he is simply programmed to react. However, what Modulok has failed to understand is that Moduos is gradually developing a higher awareness and has begun to silently observe and question the world around him.



    HISTORY: The cruel and brilliant scientist Modulok originated from a planet that has been enslaved by the Tyranid swarms for thousands of years. He escaped from the rule of the Tyranid, and travelled light years away where he encountered Hordak and the forces of the Horde. These two disdainful and evil beings clashed, but each quickly found himself respecting the other. Hordak appointed Modulok as his lead scientist, and Modulok shared stolen Tyranid technology with Hordak, as well as warning him of the creeping Tyranid fleet.

    Hordak correctly assessed the Tyranid as a serious threat, in spite of their long distance from Horde territory. He attempted to inform his brother and leader, Horde Prime, but was dismissed out of hand. The seed of discord was planted in Hordak's heart, and ever since that precise moment, Hordak has grown increasingly malcontent with his brother's leadership. Modulok has used this to his advantage over the years, manipulating Hordak in the hopes of pitting the Horde against the Tyranid.

    Behind Horde Prime's back, Hordak and Modulok have formulated a plan for Modulok to infiltrate Tyranid-Space with a small force of elite Horde agents, with the goal of gathering intelligence and carrying out high risk sabotage missions and terrorist attacks. Ultimately trusting no one but himself, Modulok created a clone offspring to be his bodyguard for this extended mission--and thus was Moduos born.




    * * *



    Yeah, that's right, I included a little incidental Warhammer 40K crossover action in that bio. So what?

    Great stuff!

    I really like your use of colors and clear lines.

    Very cool!

    I┤m normally not a big Orko fan but your version looks great and his eyes are fierce!

    i did some commissions for charity in the 2nd half of 2011, and one of the requests was Veena (the Sorceress of King Grayskull's era), on the far right.
    That Veena would look much better in my apartment...

    ...which it does!!! I need to find a decent way to get it displayed so I can share.

    Thanks again so much for all the work you did for charity.

    nightboy1984: not yet, but i definitely intend to tackle it at some point! it takes me a while, but eventually i tie up all my loose ends.

    Ulisses31: to be honest, i probably won't draw a 2-headed Modulok... but perhaps a certain 2-headed, multi-limbed robot will show up in this thread eventually?

    Charlie Brown: thank you, i'm glad you dig Moduos! and def. share with us when you take those pics!

    Niki: thank you!

    josh: HEY, I KNOW YOU. shucks man, thank you--i'm just glad you like your commission!

    danbrenus: thank you very much! i'm gonna try to keep regular content going in this thread. it's easy to have inspiration with all the fun MOTUC toys that have been out recently... *hint*

    Thatman: thank you very much! i had some other threads with my art--but my webhosting changed, so i need to update all the links. in the meanwhile, please feel free to check out all the MOTU/POP art on my blog: http://jasonbot.com/?cat=4


    THANK YOU for all the feedback, folks! it helps a guy stay motivated!

    well, to be honest, i like all your artworks!

    here are some blurry pics of my latest mix&matches:
    skull-mace was originally intended as your character armorax (alcala head, keldor boots and cape), but, later on, i went on a different approach ...
    btw credits go to you for the inspiration.
