    Motu redesign challenge #101 - HE-MAN!

    WELCOME ONE & ALL TO THE REDESIGN CHALLENGE REBIRTH!



    My good buddy Patreek and I have been excited to get this going again; to challenge artists to create their best inspired works on behalf of reimagining our beloved Masters of the Universe characters and claim the victory of recognition for their winning design.

    We hope to continue the excitement and fun that Predabot created so well here in the fan-art Forums, and inspire new works that will be admired and immortalized By the Fans of He-Man.org.


    SO, itís time to get started, and who better to begin the new journey than He-Man himself!






    The icon, the legend, and the hero we all grew up loving, has gone through some redesigns and concepts throughout the history of the line, and probably like me, many fans had dreamed of giving He-Man a new flare and look to progress with the trends and popular concepts of the generations since.

    Now itís your time to unleash that design and make it one whom the Fans of He-Man.org canít deny is a winner in their hearts!


    HERE WE GO!!!!




    - All people who choose to participate will have 1.5 months to come up with a redesign for this character.

    -You can use ANY medium you wish! You can sketch, paint, make a 3-D model,
    make a sprite, make a custom action figure, whatever you want. Its entirely up to you!

    -You don't have to force yourself to make your design conform to the new OR OLD cartoon & comic book's style.
    Be as drastic in your redesign as you see fit. Whatever makes you happy, all that is necessary is that you add something all-NEW,
    however big or small, to the characters visual appearance.

    -If you can't think of a new design, or just hate the idea of working on this character,
    you do not have to feel obligated to participate in this particular challenge.
    You will still be free to participate in any future challenges you wish.


    THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS APRIL 15TH!!

    As I possess no illustrative skill of my own, I thought I would share this, as I don't recall it ever being posted on the org. Perhaps it will help to inspire the artists in this challenge.

    Facebook page already exists, I don't think I made a social group though. What would the new thread be for? We have the past winners thread, and a Suggestion thread is on its way shortly.

    I was referring not to a page but to post news about the challenges at the H.org page.

    I checked this page https://www.facebook.com/heman.org but I have not found a post about the redesign challenge, so I sheared the news.

    Is there a an official facebook page just for the challenges? Is one of these? https://www.facebook.com/groups/214514301931822/ or https://www.facebook.com/pages/He-ma...ref=ts&sk=wall I have read both and they look the real deal, but they need more fans

    Anyway the page needs to be more spread because it have not much fans, or is it only for an elite? Hope not (joke)

    Yes the news thread here would make no sense, you are right there is a past winners thread.

    The suggestion thread at the technodrome is only at the social group, that way the group is more alive, people join to make suggestions about next characters and others things.

    It's funny because I've been redesigning He-Man for several years now, but I'm not sure how to approach this. I mean stylistically. If we were to reinvigorate the whole franchise for a new audience, I think it would call for a new cartoon and that would have it's unique style. Something CGI in the Clone Wars/Transformers Prime vein would seem like the obvious direction. A live-action movie design on the other hand would be totally different, if we go that way. This'll take some thinking.

    Ah ok gotcha. Yep those are some of the pages, still working on them though. Will be getting them going more in the next week or so. Interesting idea about the suggestion thingy.

    Hmm, I think there's a question in there.... "which route do we go? New cartoon or new movie redesign?"

    I think that decision falls in your hands fellow artists. The idea is to show what you think will put he-man back on the map so he can battle superman again, and have his name yelled at a child's birthday party; or referenced by an MMA champion on pay-per-view

    So, I suppose your concept should include whether its a cartoon, comic, or movie design... for kids, teens, adults, or all of the above. Either way, the challenge is an effort to make He-Man the essence of modern day heroes of might and virtue the way your passon tells you so.

    Dear mr. legendary oICEMANo,

    Yes, PYRE is a lazy texter...yes text because most of the time, when I respond to my threads, it's on my android phone, lol. So, if my fan character "PYRE" has a weakness, it's laziness with texting =) Dont tell skeletor, or he might exploit it.

    But in all seriousness, my apologies. I'll adress you appropriately sir. After all, you are an inspiration deserving of being correctly addressed.

    Or you can just forget all that waffle and just try to have fun redesigning He-Man in any way you like (tho hopefully not into a 5' anorexic weak little girl...cuz that would be a bit daft )
    Take a look at my attempts at coloring

    I am well pleased, young Paddawans. =)

    Will try and enter something, or at least theme up with an artist to contribute something colourful for this.

    Keep up the good work!

    I'll gladily obblige, Pred ol'buddy.
    Well, I have to say I agree with Ulisses, the Alcala He-man is all I need in life, he's simply perfect.
    So, I'll just do this...He-man is a barbarian warrior who the Goddess/Sorceress foresee as the one who, one day, will sit on the Grayskull throne as the true king of Eternia.
    Then here is He-man as the king of Grayskull, ruler of Eternia:

    Sadly, as I said, I'm submerged by work and commissions, so I wasn't able to watercolor him.
    How about him?

    amazing work, dan!
    that's something the could have been shown in the power & honor catalog and not being out of place at all.

    i love you the way you put nods and homages in your art: it's like looking at something new without forgetting about the past!

    OMG Dan! You....you....youuuuu...gah! That is just way too awesome. Now I have to try extra hard to make mine look decent, lol. Wow brother. Just wow.

    I think that's my favorite piece I've ever seen from your work.also, love the grayskul ring emblem on his belt and thanks for giving him pants! Lol. Who wears the pants in this universe?
    He truly says "I'll rip the bloodied horn out of your over-sized head mr. God-monster-guy, so don't mess with my virgin snobby princess chick!" (A lil Conan the barbarian reference for those who don't get it )

    Pred, thanks man. glad we're making you proud. Thanks for teaming me up with Patreek. He's one awesome dude.
