This is a great piece of art!
While digging through my archives I came across this image that I had created sometime in 2002 based on the "Heroic Warriors," that we're featured in Mattel's 2001 MOTU Commemorative Series of re-made action figures. It's fun to think that I created this image even before I was a member here on He-Man.Org! I had obviously planned to do this image as a colored piece (as one of my very 1st computer rendered colors), but the image remained uncolored with just inks in an old drawing pad until now! I scanned my art & did some very minor tweeks with the line work here & there to get it more up to my standards, then colored it with my current stye, but thought about what color choices I would have made 10 years ago (as I still remember what I had planned for this piece.) I hope you all like it, as it was a great trip down memory lane for me to see how much more "Anime" influenced I was 10 years ago than I am today, & hopefully long time fans notice the same growth in my art style that I have.
So here's the Heroic Warriors...Battle Armor He-Man, Teela, Man-At-Arms, Stratos, Moss-Man, Buzz-Off, & Zodac (to even the ranks)!!
Special thanks to my brother Brian for his input & thoughts, my brother Randy for his continued enthusiasm, & forum member Predabot for posting that great MOTU logo years ago!
cover Telas boobs up a tad and give man at arms a mustache and its golden..
Wow, great piece Jafari, I missed this and it's a gift to have it now before my eyes. Teela is georgeus and MAA is OK without mustache....

I like it!
Where are they? Where are your friends now? Tell me about the loneliess of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?
great work: buzz off and stratos are truly amazing!
Nice. Lovin' it. Very anime-ish.

I like how moss man is actually holding his weapon a different way. Awesome work.
That looks nice!
He-Man especially looks great, love his smirk and and his confidence. BuzzOff and Stratos! They look cool and mean up there!
Teela looks cute and thatīs not a style i like on her. She is no damsel in distress, she is one of the fiercest warriors on Eternia but here she doesnīt look like it. Donīt get me wrong, she is nicely drawn and all simply not my cup of tea regarding her looks
Thanks everyone I really appreciate all of your feedback, thoughts, & comments, it does my heart good!!
And a bump because it's My Birthday Today (& Filmation He-Man & the MOTU too!!)
Glad I waited till today to post something here then, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jafari !
Also let me say that piece is awesome, I really wish you'd dig through your old stuff more often now ! It's funny since I'm not normally a huge fan of the anime/manga style as a whole, but love the way you impliment it better then the MYP cartoon. And as always your Teela is super sexy but I also loved your Buzzoff and MossMan renditions, especially the subtle circuitry on his wings! Great Job!

I think you did a great job coloring it. The art is very nice too. It's nice to see characters beyond the ones you always draw (Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, and Man-At-Arms).

...& thanks Powered for posting your feedback & coloring compliments! I really had fun coloring up Zodak, Stratos, Buzz-Off & Moss-Man... all of whom have not appeared in as much of my MOTU related work!
Wouaw,, really love it ! Very good job
Thanks guys, I really appreciate all of the nice comments!
wow jafari this is one of my favorites of your works. i love all the characters but most like zodac & teela.
Happy Belated Birthday, JafariStew !
Awesome piece! I really like the composition, and choice of characters.
Your Teela carries both that hint of cheesecake and kung-fu treachery!
