    Motu re-imagining

    Hi

    This is my re-imagining of the classic Skeletor. Taking influence from the foundation of the material then developing the design as I would for a real character in hi/her/its universe. My images have been used to promote MOTU movie news, I just wanted to point out I have nothing todo with the movie. This is for the love of MOTU and the art.

    This is really, really nice work. My only personal issue with it is the lack of a hood. Skeletor's hood is iconic. Other than that, beautiful job!

    Thanks Wakko. I jhave put the hood on the todo list for sure. Aiming to do the armour version of him at some point as well.

    I like seeing your artwork pop up in articles about the new movie... I hope the studio's design team is paying close attention to your approach, or even reaching out to you!

    Alas I have tried for years, pulled in every favour I ever had. I did a few pieces to try and get their attention. Sent it to everyone I knew, no replies. Then I saw what Goyer did to Teela . Thought, never mind I tried. So released the art publicly and started doing more of my own.

    Top quality work as always! I did actually see this one back in December, along with your other MOTU pieces over at DevArt! How's the Kickstarter coming along?

    Building up to the big date now. Just a few more ink drawings and some big paintings and I think / hope it will be all ready by the 30th.

    This version of Skeletor is more in line with my own somewhat phantasmagorical take on things. Taking the premise that he is a being from a different dimension.

    Exactly! I am so glad you said that. So many artists are distant from the people that enjoy their works. I hate that.

    I wish to offer my most sincere adulation! This is the aesthetic I've always wished to see MOTU done in. In my humble opinion, your execution is simply superb, as well as greatly inspiring.

    Top 10 MOTUC: Shokoti > Shadow Weaver > Faker > Fang-or > Vykor > Blade > Scareglow > Huntara > Scorpia > Skeletor
