    Created Character: The Daughter of Skeletor!

    Here's a fun collaborative MOTU project that I've been working on with my friend, Ren-Ra. After I told her about the proposed story of the Son of He-Man, and the more undefined Son of Skeletor, she felt like changing it around by introducing Keltra, the Daughter of Skeletor instead!

    When she told me about her idea, I made this rough concept sketch...



    Initially, I went with a raven-haired design because of Keldor's black hair but I liked Ren-Ra's version with blonde hair better. It gave Keltra some nice contrast by bringing in extra color, so I made this new sketch based on Ren-Ra's designs...



    Here's my first finished drawing, colored by Ren-Ra...



    Finally, I just made this for fun; A "cel" from the lost Filmation Episode 131 of He-Man, "The Daughter of Evil"!



    Keltra is a fun character to work with and I'm still fleshing out her story. Hopefully, I'll have more illustrations to share soon...I hope you like the art and any feedback is appreciated, thanks for looking!

    Very nice; I like the idea that Skeletor has a daughter! And she looks quite pretty!

    Thanks, guys! I definitely envision Keltra being more than a handful for both Heroic and Evil Warriors alike, heheh! Here are a couple of quick, new sketches...Starting with Keltra discovering an old item that accessorizes her nicely, the Terror Claws!



    Also, I can see her throwing one of those classic Filmation tandrums!

    Actually, that's one of the first things that I thought about while working on Keltra. A shame that Illumina didn't win the Fan's Choice, she would've made an excellent base. Still, I have a rough idea for a suitable MOTUC base so I may try my hand at customizing my own figure later on!

    I absolutely love your edited animation cell, it looks really cool!

    Years ago another orger created a fan character who was the daughter of Skeletor and Evil-Lyn. I believe her name was Mal-Lyss or Malice, something of that nature. She looked like Evil-Lyn in modified Skeletor armor. It was a very cool piece. Your choice to give her blond hair and blue skin gives her a real Filmation look.

    If I could make 1 design suggestion, perhaps she could wear 1 bejeweled Terror Claw. You could also bejewel the Havoc staff with a third eye.

    Hey there, RenRa...I'm glad to see you here! I look forward to seeing all of your new artwork!

    Heheh, Midor, the daughter of Demo-Man! Actually, Demo-Man figures into my story but in a different way...

    Sky Breaker, I did some digging around and found that Mal-Lyss character design. She does look pretty cool and has a far more grisly backstory than Keltra! I like the idea of Keltra adding embellishments to the Terror Claws and some of her dad's old stuff. Just as long as she doesn't turn Snake Mountain pink!

    For the Filmation style stuff, I'd say to cut down on the details of the outfit some to really give it the right look. We all know how characters would lose detail from the model sheet by the time they got animated.

    It was fun to draw the other "Daughters of Skeletor", I hope you like this!

    And colored versions of MicroMan's artwork!



    With these I tried a different coloring method, I think they came out nice!
