    Redesign Challenge #77 - Shokoti

    Yes, next up is something of an obscure, but also culty, character.

    SHOKOTI - The mistress of the ancient Temple Shokoti has vast magical abilities, so vast that she came within a hair's breadth from defeating He-man once and for all.

    She only appeared in two episodes of the Filmation-series, ( House of Shokoti 1&2) but it was quite enough to establish the character.

    Quote Originally Posted by From Wiki
    Shokoti is an extremely powerful undead sorceress who resides in the Sands of Time. She only appears once in the entire Masters of the Universe cartoon series, but is worthy of mentioning due to the fact that she nearly defeats He-Man. She has a rather demonic appearance, with a horned headdress, jet-black hair, pale bluish skin and black, lifeless eyes. The only episode of her appearance, "The House of Shokoti, part 2" is considered one of the darkest episodes in the series.
    Episode info:

    http://www.he-man.org/cartoon/episod...deNumber=MU041

    Image-reference:



    All people who choose to participate will have two weeks to come up with a redesign for Shokoti. You can use any medium you wish. You can sketch, paint make a 3-D model, make a sprite, make a custom action figure, whatever you want. Its entirely up to you!

    As well, you don't have to force yourself to make your design conform to the new or old cartoon or comic book's style. Be as drastic in your redesign as you see fit. Whatever makes you happy.

    If you can't think of a new design, or just hate the idea of working on this character, you do not have to feel obligated to participate in this particular challenge. You will still be free to participate in any future challenges you wish.

    Sounds like a fun challenge. The good news is that I finished my version, but I won't be able to post it until Monday since the only scanners I can get access to are at college I go to and it won't be open until Monday.

    My Shokoti has 2 action features: she can wrap around enemies with her cloak/neckcloth and she has mirror with hologram sticker. Her skin color was supposed to be more like Keldor/Kronis but I didn't have light blue pen and I was too lazy with computer.
    Will do commissions for loose 200X Evillyn or Roboto. Guarantee: if not happy with pic, no need to send fig!

    The scarf is interesting, but I'm curious, what powers does the mirror have?

    Cool stuff dude! And yeah, I'm curious about the mirror too. Btw, do you want me to make some adjustments to her skin-tone or such? I'm free for it, since it doesn't take long at all.

    Here's my entry.
    My Take: The idea I have for her is that since there plenty of spellcasters in the new series and she's undead, why not make her an ancient vampire who was sealed away by King Randor during The Great Unrest until some kid accidently releases her. A cold, calculating woman, Shokoti knows that she will simply outlive Randor but has no qualms about using his son, Adam, against him.

    Powers:
    -Domination: By making direct eye-contact, Shokoti can turn the victim into her willing slave.
    -Alternate forms: Can shift between bat, mist, and human forms.
    -Nercomancy: Shokoti can animate and control any corpse in the vicinity.
    -Scythe: Shokoti's duel-headed scythe can be launched and return to her like a boomerang.

    Holy hannah! Knocked right out of the park, you scary beautiful, hairy man, you!

    Cool to see that you gave PS a dust-off for this one. What was it like to have a try at the ol' Shop after so long time away?

    Hey girl, that looks great! You always have some new different ways of looking at these characters.

    Oh it's not like I dusted it off by any means. I work with Photoshop everyday.

    It's just that when I paint like this, usually I work most of the rendering and such in Painter. This time I just never left Photoshop. *shrugs*

    I don't see that being a trend by any means...

    Thanks. I just thought the horns would be more interesting if they were part of her, to give her a more demonic apperance (I was inspired by the ladies of Chaos Comics when doing her design).

    Well, heck, I never really post art here, but I felt like doing a Shokoti that was a little more... outré... I hope everyone likes it; it's meant to be a little alien, a little deep-sea, a little demonic... so without further ado, my re-imagined Shokoti:



    Edit: Hmmm... I liked the colors on the first I found them a little bright so here's another version hued down a little darker and earthier...

    Called out! Heh.

    Baena, I gotta say that your Shokoti is gorgeous! Definitely a very seductive design. LOVE IT!

    I did my best to go another route after seeing yours so I decided on strong and "hard" (and even leeched a few "effects" ie. the cobwebs!)

    Not sure if I succeeded but here she is

    I like it. The skirt is a little plain, but it's still cool.
