    New Oil Painting W.I.P.: "He-Man: The Prophecy Of The Legend"

    Hello there again!
    I'd like to share the process of my new painting.
    Members of Germany's page "planeteternia.de" may already know.
    I am actually recreating the last page of the very classic minicomic "King Of Castle Grayskull" as a huge oil painting 80/120 cms (about 31,5 x 47,2 inches). The working title is "He-Man: The Prophecy Of The Legend", taken from the original page text itself:



    I have made some sketches around easter time and now I began the painting process.

    For those who are interested: Have fun - I'll keep you upodated about the process.







    Yours, SiMo

    Absolutely stunning! Seeing the original artwork actually made me recall very vague memories of my childhood, specifically the skull-shaped spirit over Greyskull, as well as the way Teela looks back. Must have been 30 years or so since I last saw that picture. Thanks for posting this!

    WOW!

    This looks fantastic so far SiMo! This was one of my favorite pages from the mini comic era. What's better from a romantic walk barbarian style, on a giant green tiger! I' m eager to see the final artwork! It will be another masterpiece, i' m sure of it!

    And it's great choice as now we know that the old prophecy has been fulfilled, and He-Man and Teela are indeed the King and Queen of Castle Grayskull!!

    Looks great already!

    The very detailed smoke skull is an interesting take. You are really creative and making a classic image your own!

    Looking forward to other things you come up, as well

    Thanks a lot - here is a small Update.
    The landscape is growing.
    Bit by bit the layers are added 'til Eternia is... wel... grounded.

    Can I just say that you should do this often? do you know your art reminds me of Storm Thorgerson, and Earl Norem?


    Whenever there's a oil painting art of He-Man I always thought of you man.

    Thanks a lot!
    Fendi - I don't do anything else in arts at the moment.

    Norem is a name that is associated with my art very often - and I am indeed proud of that.
    But I feel really flattered about reminding you of Storm Thorgerson. I know his artwork since I have been a toddler - that is cool, thanks!

    I'm sure you will breach out to another project like Thorgerson did someday. I really love Storm Thorgerson art and I'm sure you will be big as him.
