    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!!

    Count me in. This is right up my alley!

    as it just happens i have been drawing my own versions of MOTU characters and came into the Fan Art section to see how many people actually participate here. You know, drawing is fun and rewarding in itself, but one always seeks feedback from fellow art enthusiasts.

    I haven't started thinking about a He-Man redesign, but... i'm going to share with you my take on Mantenna (in progress)

    Currently working on Leech and other Horde members and Evil warriors... villains are so much more fun to draw lol.

    YEEEEEEEAAAAAHHHH! This really kick major evil ass! I can recognize the spirit of this, really touch my own, great work.
    Thanks everybody for the kind comments, but I do believe it will be hard to shine through the art that will pop up here in the days to come.
    Wow, how exiting!

    Great artwork, my Zombihamma-AI friend. But I have to ask... is your "movie" He-man from Trolla?

    Oh, and Pyre, I'm guessing your take on He-man is R-rated?

    SirBushnell SPEAKS!

    Get ready for a future with a magical blend of science fiction and fantasy. A brand new legend. A whole new war.
    It's coming...

    Amazing work, man. For some reason this one reminded me of Slaine. Probably the giant axe

    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.
    The artist formerly known as Mechthild

    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.

    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.

    I've seen these redesign threads and have often wanted to be give it a go. I'd be lying if I said that I haven't found one excuse or another to talk myself out of it though. But not this time.

    Great ideas and concepts as always, truly awesome to see.
