    Rain: thanks!

    gatchagrey: ... thanks for the enthusiasm, gatcha! just to clarify, i won't be perfectly alternating between my characters and other people's, but i am going to try and keep it as balanced as possible. next character will be posted monday-ish (and it will be one of mine).

    StarBlazerM31: i appreciate it!


    EDIT:

    Today's illustration is a monstrous steed for "Leo Skeletor". He resembles his mythological namesake, but with some minor differences, and of course he's patterned after Battle Cat, Panthor, and my own fan character, War-Tiger. He is not to be confused with Montecore.



    This one feels a little stiff and "blah" to me. I'm happy with the color scheme though... I feel like I successfully emulated the bright and garish style of 80's action figures.

    * * *

    PROFILE: Armed with a poisonous sting, a deafening roar, and the power of flight, the fearsome MANTICORE serves HIGH PRIEST LEO as loyally as the High Priest serves the God-King of Infinita. Like Battle Cat, Manticore is a highly intelligent creature, fully capable of speech.

    HISTORY: Upon achieving the rank of High Priest, Manticore was granted to Leo by the God-King of Infinita himself, as a servant and ally. Manticore is the head of his clan, and is widely known for his arrogant sense of pride as well as his steadfast sense of loyalty and duty.


    * * *


    not sure who i'm gonna draw up next, but i have a short list, and some rough sketches...

    The pose might be a little stiff, but I love the color-scheme and the use of the classic saddle - great work! I also dig his expression.

    can't wait to see your latest customs buddy. the god-king of infinita is not skeletor--i don't want to give away too much just yet, but think of him as a powerful entity, like lighthope or horde prime.

    thanks Pred (though i think Patreek probably wrote that before i posted my entry).

    Patreek: thanks man, i appreciate it!
    Orko-78: thank you very much--check out the variants thread in my sig, Hordak's Henchman has built some customs based on my art.

    ok, here's my fan-interpretation of the character Skull Man from Remco's MOTU-compatible toy line, "The Warrior Beasts", along with a bio incorporating him into the MOTU universe:



    * * *

    PROFILE: Cold and efficient, SKULL MAN is not only a mercenary, but an expert tracker and sleuth, armed with a cunning intellect. His hand-to-hand combat abilities hint at extensive training in martial arts from across the galaxy--this expertise allows his him to match up against opponents who would otherwise outmatch him in brute strength. Skull Man's favored weapons are the bow and dagger.

    HISTORY: The enigmatic mercenary SKULL MAN operates under his own rules, sometimes working for the forces of good, and sometimes working for the forces of evil. He has his own motivations, but those motivations are as unknown as his true identity. He has been known to operate in Skartaris, but most recently has been sighted on Eternia, allied with the Raqquill Rqazz's personal army, the Warrior Beasts of Berserker Island.

    I'll be pleased if you'd look at this pic of mine and tell my if you like it.

    super-munkyboy: thanks dude! i'm thinking the skull is a mask--i'm kind of envisioning him as a cross between the masque of the red death and the scarlet pimpernel.

    danbrenus: thank you very much my friend... great minds think alike! your skull man picture is fantastic! i commented in the ultraclassics thread. can we expect to see more warrior beasts from you?

    Super-munkyboy: NOOO! He's an infinitian all the way! Just think it's easy to achieve a bone-face there!

    Bootleg:I'm working on Guana and Wolf Warrior. Truly, since much of the WB are reptilians I think they could be Whiplash's kind too, don't you think?

    As always bootleg, loving your work here.

    I think the thing I love the most about your art is the use of color - it's so fun, it just makes you want to look at it more and more. That, and the "weight" of your characters really takes me back to the days of the old action figures.

    It was especially cool to see both you and danbrenus' take on the same character - one of my favorite things about this forum!

    Wow!! Skull-Man!!

    Now when I was very young I got this great sticker of a glow in the dark creepy skull and on it said Skull-Man.
    I always loved that name and often wondered if it was nothing more than a random sticker (can't remember a «).

    But now you saying that there was an actual copyrighted character called Skull-Man!!
    Well there could be a wee mystery being solved here!
