    Demo-man and others proto-MOTU



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us
    This is my first serious attempt at Demo-man. Initally I envisioned his as being blue skinned (maybe because of his connection to the concept of Skeletor) and I even did a custom figure of him that way, then I saw the original sketch of Mark Taylor as being green...
    I imagine him as the leader of the invading extradimensional forces that attacked ancient Eternia igniting the great wars, then his scheming lieternaunt Skeletor let him to be banished to limbo by the ancient of Eternia with all of his army...uh, sounds familiar?

    Warthog-man is another concept never developed by Mattel, a really appealing one if you ask me, a boar warrior! Simple and effective, he is of course, a "beast-man from the vine jungle, exiled to limbo alongside his master Demo-man.
    More undeveloped MOTU prototypesto come soon...

    I cannot tell you how much I love these. And I too envisioned Demo-Man as blue too for some reason. Great origin... I mean that.
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    Thanks guys, those are just roughly colored sketches, I barely have time to draw lately.

    This thread can't leave without those two, the early prototype versions of Mer-man and Stratos (or should I call him Avatear, the EVIL winged warrior?).

    Easily my favourite incarnation of Demo-Man thus far! I'm definitely going to do up a pic using your design (if that's cool...)

    Excellent!

    Love your work Danbrenus and these are no exception. But...Demo man looks a little to much like Beast Man. Was that intentional?

    Awesome work Danbrenus! You're images of vintage characters is always an inspiration! I may have to take a crack at a custom of that Boar-Man some day.
    At this time, I'm not taking commissions or selling any of my customs. Sorry everyone, I'm just a tease.

    Demoman is very similar to beast man. makes me think that we may have him as a figure in the future. it wouldn't be difficult for tooling.

    I tought my take on Vikor would be futile as he has received his AF, but I'll do something as soon as I can.

    It hass been stated long ago that both the designs of Beast-man and Skeletor originated by that of Demo-man. Thanks pal.

    Now some new things:
    This is one of my favourites, I thinks he's called Horrorsaur, maybe a preliminar stage of Whiplash, maybe a whole new character...


    Uploaded with ImageShack.us
    I add a B/W version, official colored scheme doesn't exists, so if someone would like to do something to save this poor lizard-guy by my awfull coloring I'll be glad...

    Wow danbrenus - your work is always incredible - from the early-mini-stylings to theconcepts themselves. Demo-Man is the best iteration I've seen & the other Proto-MOTU (PMOTU?) are a great way of giving some time & space to characters that could be made (as in MOTU) or re-portrayed in new media.

    You're keeping the original savage creatures of the darkest Eternia alive! Congrats - keep it up! Lose a little sleep! Awesome again danbrenus!

    You've done it again! Thank you so much for drawing out Mer-Man and Avatar. I'd never heard of Horrorsaur, but he looks great too! You have such a gift for keeping Miniternia alive and well.
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    Thanks guys, you know I'm a vintage addicted.
    Now take these, Red-beast, or, as many loves to call him, Sumo-bear, from the ancient scrolls of Mark Taylor here is the savage henchman of Demo-man, of course the earlier version of Beast-man...

    ...based on the impossible-to-find Big Jim grizzly bear:

    And then the best Horde character never made, Goretusk:


    Uploaded with ImageShack.us
    Goretusk is a never developed preliminary sketch of a massive Horde mammoth warrior.
    When I look at him I ask myself why such good concepts were scrapped while some lousy ones made it into actual figures...
    I thanks Gbagok, the true master of the redesign challenges, for the color scheme of Goretusk.
