    New Oil Painting - Vintage Cover Conversation: "He-Man and the Power Sword"

    These are very first sketches for my new oil painting project "He-Man and the Power Sword". The picture will be a huge 1,00 m x 1,20 m (ca 39 x 47 inches) sized conversation of the minicomic-cover made by Alfredo Alcala.


    The first painting steps will happen at a Grayskull Con 2014 live panel. Looking forward to it!

    Here is the result of my oil live painting panel at Grayskull Con 2014 - it was fun to meet all the people. This will be the background for the "He-Man and the Power Sword" painting (panel photo by Jukka Issakainen). *Enjoy!

    Major Change in Man-At-Arms' pose:

    On the original cover he is hit by an energy ray – and he stands around totally unconcerned.

    I love Alcalas art, but this doesn't work too well IMO. I decided to give Man-At-Arms any reaction to the threatening blast. My friend Bj÷rn "DJForce" said, a weapons master wouldn't let anybody shoot him down that easily. What should I say, the DJ was right. On my painting Duncan will protect himself with an energy shield - in my opinion an adequate reaction of our "Heroic Master of Weapons".



    And here... And here is the newest picture of the painting - character sketches are included and give a glimpse of their size.

    I have my own idea... we'll see.

    Time to reveal Beastman and the first paint steps for the characters.

    Looking very cool, wow, my one crit would be , on MAA's arm blocking the ray I would turn his arm guard facing front, it looks kinda awkward on the side of his arm like that ,
    Beast man look fantastic as does He-man

    Update.
    It has some composition related reasons for me to leave MAA`s arm the same way it is. He is blocking the ray with a shield anyway...
