    JAFARISTEW'S Masters Of The Universe Whitman Origin Tribute Character Art!!

    To help celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Masters of the Universe, I decided to do some character cards, this time inspired by the unfinished Whitman comic from the 1980's, done by Adrian Gonzales. You can see more information as well as the art from this interesting piece of MOTU history here.!

    I looked at this comic thread extensively, & then brought in my own ideas of what I thought this Whitman Origin of MOTU would look like if made into a more "adult-collector-style" animated series. The comic itself is a bit darker than most official MOTU stories, but still contains the classic good vs evil, fantasy meets sci-fi that we all love. I wanted to pay homage to what I think this comic could represent by making "character cards," hopefully to help bring to life what I think is an interesting take on the origin of Masters. The color choices were made by me, as I re-thought how these classic characters could be colored if presented to me for the 1st time (so rather than just using the pre-established schemes we all know, I thought about the descriptions of the characters themselves as an influence... example: Skeletor buck described as a reptile body).

    So here is Skeletor, He-Man, Teela, Man-At-Arms, & Anom (I think this is the 1st fan-art done of this particularly obscure character!)

    If this thread proves to be popular, I will continue & do some more character cards based on the Whitman Origin, & include Shalda, Tez, Moon Spinner, the Shepard's Son, & the Demons.
    Special thanks to my brother Brian for all of the feedback & advice, & to my brother Randy for his enthusiasm!

    I love this! MAA, the hero of Monarch, I use the Monarch reference in my own canon!
    And the art, as I'm surprising anyone, is stunning. More, I want more.

    Awesome job! These designs would look great in a live-action film, especially Man-At-Arms.

    Very nice, I'm not usually into the varying looks of these characters, but these do stand out as something special. Great work!
