    Motu Redesign challenge #85 - The NEW Adventures of TEELA!!

    Motu Redesign challenge #85 - The New Adventures of TEELA!

    A landmark number once more. And every landmark number in the challenge deserves a special character. : )
    
    Many are aware that there was a New Adventures of He-man toyline and animated series in the early 90's,
    but considerably fewer people know about Teela's one and only appearance in said series.

    One of my personal favourites of the whole NA show, Teela shows up in the episode "Once Upon a Time", sent by
    The Sorceress to aid He-man mentally and physically in his battle against Skeletor, because of the tremendous bout with doubt and home-sickness that
    he is going trough at the time.

    Definitely one of the best episodes of the show, it goes into depth exploring the feelings that He-man has,
    while stranded millions of years into the future.

    Although Teela's personality was more or less the same, her appearance was quite different from
    the original classic depiction, however!

    Sporting more of a purple and pink outfit, as well as having died her hair blonde, Teela had an all-new look.
    Some could say it harkened back slightly to the first mini-comics, with the blonde and more lose hair.


    Read more about it here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teela#Portrayal

    A small video-clip can be found here:

    Reference-pictures:
    -------------------
    Cartoon - Beats me. It's notoriously hard to find pictures, so if you've got any, PLEASE post in this thread and I'll add 'em to the top ASAP.


    EDIT: Thanks to our smashin' mate Jukka, we now have some more reference-pictures!
    A whole gallery here:

    The rules are as EVER:
    All people who choose to participate will have two weeks to come up with a redesign for this
    character. 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 &
    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.

    Here i go

    This version of Teela is like an alternate one
    Stronger maybe no so faster but in this
    version i was thinking in a better sidekick
    for He-Man... but if is Teela Adventure...
    maybe He-Man should be the sidekick

    I already started doodleing ideas for my take, something which deviates from that cartoon design. Never really did like Teela being blonde .

    Ahaa. Looks like she's taken a que from her old man, so to speak. And yeah, maybe He-man should be the sidekick??

    That certainly seems to be a preference among the fans, the darker hair-colours. Well, this is your chance! ^^

    Wow this is right up my alley as far as redesigns go. But sadly I can't participate...

    Still I've got my eye in here to see what you all come up with! Should be FANTASTIC!

    Oh and I've always kind of fancied Teela as a Strawberry blonde... So again, you can feel from me that I really wish I could participate... Just can't justify it right now.

    i see teela kinda take up the role as leader and guardian of eternia...man at arms maybe retiring..and he-man gone...even though there is no skeletor.. there is still evil lynn and alot of baddies around...



    always though she had kinda of a valkyrie look to her i was trying to keep

    GATCHA!! You sweet, sweet sick puppy. You always throw your hat into the mix. Well done. ^^

    I see that your Teela has taken the dyed hair a bit more modern, putting in more colours than simply blond in it. Pretty neat.

    I gotta be honest..
    I am not familiar with New Adventure of He-man..because i hate it and i hardly recognize MOTU character in that show..even Teela didn't look like the Teela that i know (from design point of view IMHO).
    The bottom line is i don't like the concept of 'futuristic' MOTU.
    Okay..enough already..
    Here's my version of NOH Teela..

    Ah, GREAT fresh new take on Teela! Clearly inspired by stuff like Flash Gordon and the Rocketeer, which is kind of fitting. Both Flash Gordon and Star Wars were the two big inspirations for the sci-fi side of MotU.

    The other side of course being the Savage Robert E. Howard worlds, like Kull and Conan.

    Sounds like a plan Patreek! Can't wait to see it.

    Yeah... wouldn't it be nice to see a Bootleg-entry? Wouldn't that be sweet...? So, you've got something comin' then, Bootleg?

    That damn end-meat that us starvin' artists have to earn..! Glad that you like the idea, I'm rather fond of it myself, if I may say so. I figured it was a clever idea to play with one of the biggest characters in MotU, yet still keep it within the rules of the challenge, so to speak. And I also know this is a version that a lot of people probably want to redesign. ^^

    That's not Bootlegs work tho, Eamon yeh' jinnit! ; ) That's newcomer Yance's slightly animated-looking Teela! XD

    Hi, Predabot
    YES!!! How did you figured out that i use Flash Gordon/ Buck Rogers as Teela's designs???

    And yes, because MOTu was based on Conan, i based NAOH on Flash Gordon!!!

    Well, that style is just so distinct and easy to spot, so you simply did a really good job of portraying the style. Hard to miss then.

    Keep 'em comin' guys!

    ok so in eternia with out he-man and skelly, there are still lots of evil to be delt with. now Teela has had to step up and take the mantle of hero as her and the new defenders of grayskull fight evilyn and hordak and the snake men....
    (i couldnt decide on color so i did a NA and a classic color,, , )
