    I just want to say thanks for all the nice comments you guys have left me. Obviously I am always in awe of the talent that surrounds us here. This has been a great redesign and I knew I wanted to do it when I saw it posted. Maybe soon I can try a male redesign, that would be a big challenge for me; I'm not used to drawing guys.

    I just got a WACOM tablet so maybe I can import this Shokoti and play around with her in the future. I wanted to do that for this but I'm so inexperienced it'd never get done! I'm so inexperienced I don't know if you can import a hand drawn piece! lol. So afraid of the unknown.

    Anyway, I ramble. And I STILL can't figure out a favorite!

    Summoned by the mighty triumvirate of Baena, Patreek, and 2-bad, I am unable to resist the call!!! (Thanks for thinking of me guys, I'm flattered! )

    This time around, I had a hard time figuring out how to redesign the character while trying not to make changes for change's sake. Plus, everyone's entries are really strong!! (I'll wait to comment on everyone else's entries when the voting thread goes up--right now I'm still soaking it all in) It's quite a sight to behold when the giants of the org all decide to throw their hat in the mix... All in all, I thought a different approach might be necessary:



    This cartoony, not-quite chibi style is rather different from what people on the org might be used to seeing from me. I'll be curious to see what everyone thinks.

    I changed her name to "Shokutie" for two reasons, 1) to play up the cartoony aspect of this drawing and 2) because I cannot resist a terrible pun. Sorry. I settled on "Wicked Mistress of Hubba Hubba" as her title after rejecting "Villainous Mistress of Va Va Voom" and "Evil Mistress of Honk Honk Awooga."

    I'm basically satisfied with the drawing and color choices on this one (i punched up all her colors so they were more saturated and vibrant than the original). The actual rendering however is pretty "meh" (don't even bother trying to identify consistent light sources!) and I wish I had pushed the hair color more towards black rather than blue.

    This sketch, obviously, does not fall in my normal series of Masters of the Universe drawings. Although, because of the modified name, I guess she could conceivably be some kind of a slightly super deformed avatar that manifested sentience and became an independent entity, similar but not exactly like the background I came up with for Horduck. Wow, that was a nerdy sentence. Aww, what the heck, here's a profile for the little hottie:

    * * *

    PROFILE: SHOKUTIE (so named by Orko) has the basic abilities and personality of Shokoti, however her power levels are diminished, and her demeanor has an added impish aspect to it. She's still something of a bully, but it appears that Shokutie may be a more innocent version of Shokoti, as she lacks some of the original's more cruel tendencies.

    HISTORY: After her defeat at the hands of He-Man, Shokoti attempted to rematerialize herself on the material plane by creating an avatar that contained a fraction of her power. The avatar was able to bring about Shokoti's return, but in the process, apparently became autonomous. When Shokoti tried reabsorbing Shokutie against her will, Orko (who had somewhat befriended her), casted a mirror spell, attempting to deflect Shokoti's magic. As could be expected, Orko botched the spell, but it had an unexpected affect--Shokoti was able to reabsorb an equivalent amount of magic so that her soul and magic ability were rendered whole once more, and yet Shokutie was able to continue existing, free from the power of her originator. Still somewhat weakened, Shokoti retreated, vowing vengeance on He-Man and his allies, as well as her diminuitive doppleganger. Orko attempted to convince Shokutie to join the side of good, but she was still struggling with her newfound freedom and possibly evil nature. She was allowed to go free, and was last seen on Etheria, playing pranks on Horduck.


    * * *

    So, I guess that means that this is part of my regular series of He-Man pics. I also have a "standard" version Shokoti that I also drew up (that one sticks pretty close to the original costume), and will be posting sometime in the future (not in time for this contest though).

    Wicked mistress of HUBBA HUBBA is right!!!

    There's just sooooo much to love about this one. Way to go Bootleg!

    Love the re-naming too... very on par with the episode as Ramman never said her name right.

    Man,
    There is some really good stuff going on in this thread. It's always nice to see so many enter in these challenges.
    I know I love seeing all the different versions and styles.

    I had to rush mine a little. If I can find a few minutes I'll try to get a better one in at the last minute, but just incase I can't I'm entering this one anyway.



    I added some of her creatures and the Mask that is Masque. So much about Shokoti to me is her whole strange lare and creatures. I had to include a few, even if just as accesories.

    If you want to design the HIDEOUS creature she intends to summon to destroy all of Eternia so she can live again and rule the remains, then I might make an extension here! How much time do you think we need? We kind of need to hit the Halloween or there around limit, to get the board into the right mood, but I wager a day or so we could certainly spare.

    PS: Nice knee-guards. ^^ And them there horns. And them there hips...'n them there luv'able eyes...

    Oh, that looks great! If you hadn't revealed the original plan to draw the full figure, I would have assumed it was complete as a bust...

    thanks man! maybe she reminds you of lucy pinder? heh... just kidding--to be honest the only 'person' i was thinking of when i drew this was maybe betty rubble... you can see a bit of that in her nose and lips.

    I don't think any words can describe how Amazing this pic is BBM. O love everything about this pic down to the creepy crawlies & they freaked me out in the show as a kid. Now I wish we got to see Shokoti in the MYP toon based off your design.

    Well, since there appears to be a couple of others not yet quite done, I believe that we're going to have to go with "later".

    And here's a public shout-out: What do you guys think? Should I extend the deadline till tomorrow so these talented artists can get the few more precious hours needed to complete their designs?
