    Thank you - don't know yet.
    I have so many projects I wanna do... maybe I return to sculpting after that painting.

    I'd love to see a bikini Teela painting done by you.
    I don't know if it will be the bikini-version, but every object of the original cover will be in the painting. So... yeah, there will be Teela and Battlecat's mask, too.

    WOW

    That looks great, I hope to get a print of it at a decent price to hang on my office.

    ah - I didn't read it right. Honestly I doubt it. I have other (loose) plans about adding her to my statue... but I still don't know.

    What do you mean? If you mean other paintings... I don't think so.

    New update:



    And again: Please bear with me, but I still don't know if I would send printable versions around. I don't want my picture to be sold on ebay by any italian or thai reproducer. No offense to my foreign friends, but these are typical examples. I just don't feel like finding prints of MOTU Deviants on the italien bay or something like that...

    That's exactly my intention: Combining one of the most classic covers with the classic box art style.

    Fendi: Thank you! Yeah, I knew exactly what you meant, I just didn't know how to solve the problem at first. But don't worry, I do not leave anything half-done.


    Well... thank you all. Pleasing the strict fandom of He-man is a great compliment for me. I will go on at weekend. So long!

    Thanks. That's not a part of the cover but a hommage to the box arts. There was always something to find in the background - a character or very often a vehicle.

    Thank you very much. I don't have a own homepage yet. You know, my works have a huge range, I wouldn't know how to make one single Homepage of it. I am member in a few forums, that is enough for me. Painting has become the smaller part of my hobbies in the last few years. Mostly I am sculpting statues. My He-man on Battlecat statue for example is quite well known in this forum. But I am member in other forums too, because not all of what I am doing is MOTU. I make everything I want. Last figure was Bruce Willis as MacClane from Die Hard I. That's the reason why I cannot promise to make another MOTU painting any time. Maybe... maybe not... there are about 30 projects and ideas waiting for being realized, making one thing again and again is too boring for me, honestly.

    Thanks, man. That's not the point, I am web-designer myself
    Maybe I'll start a blog sometimes. You know... the main thing for me is to get a response, and the best place for that are forums.
