Really, Really nice shot of the Castle in that second grab. No offense to anyone, im a Huge Man-E-Faces fan, but that redesign is horrible. I'm not sure who's edict that was but I'm not a fan of it.
What some people may not appreciate or get, is that characters like Man-E, is that there's a cool clunkiness they have. where a idea might seem hard to get or sound silly in concept , is just visually fun.
Yeah a shape changer with a metal techno bucket on his head might not sound practical---he just looks cool. I think that's part of the magic of this line.
But overall Axel did some great stuff here.
