    Oil Painting: Masters Of The Universe - Attack of the Invisible Gnomes

    Hello there - after my "King of Castle Graykull" I was asked a while ago to make a new MOTU Painting - well, here you are.
    This is my new painting 'Attack of the Invisible Gnomes' - after a scene in a classic german MOTU audio play named 'The Tree of Dying Time'.
    Skeletor has hurt the mighty tree in Avion and unleashed the invisible gnomes - the city seems to descend into chaos...
    Oil on canvas, 100 x 70 cm. Visitors can view the original piece in September at Grayskull Con 2014 in Moers/Germany.



    Here is a little collection of references and easter eggs I included - some of them directly, some in a more subtile way...
    Have fun!
    Everybody said: it is not possible.
    Then someday someone did it.

    This is impressive (though I think that the perspective/proportions of He-Man's lower limbs are not quite correct.)

    All the same, I do like the way you've captured the life and colour of the original art style.

    Love it; reminds me of the vintage box-art from the vehicles / beasts / etc.

    Nice work!

    I hope to do a MotU piece in the future too, but for now it is Man Of Steel under the brush.
