    New 'animated-style' MOTU headshot by Emiliano Santalucia

    Hey all,

    I thought you'd all like to see some stunning fan art by Italian artist Emiliano Santalucia posted recently on Facebook. Personally, I'd love a new animated series to look like this - and with such a vast array of characters from many corners of the MOTU mythos.

    Check them out!

    Sorceress and Mekaneck



    Modulok:

    More great stuff from Emiliano! I especially like Modulok, Jitsu, Clawful, Hordak & Flogg. This Flogg would totally destroy the Jetlag version....

    I am definitely okay with this art style. In fact...I could absolutely see a good MOTU cartoon done in the CGI vein of the new TMNT this way.

    Now, here's hoping he tries his luck on a Snake Man. I think that's the only faction not touched upon so far.

    Am I the only one who gets a 'Transformers Animated' vibe from Mekaneck, Buzz-Off and Man-E-Faces?

    I don't know what vibe I get, but I'm not feeling em. Reminds me of 200x.. fisto's beard has square edges, buzz off and blade seem scrawny.

    Have to be honest and say that whilst it's nice art, it ain't my cup of tea at all. Definitely would NOT like a new animated MOTU cartoon to look like this...
    I HAVE THE POWER!!!!!!!!

    Emil's reasoning behind the kilt is that you can cover up his legs without going all Iron-Manny...

    While I think that is true, I would prefer pants to this. The shape of the boots and the cut of the kilt make it look like he is wearing a skirt with UGG boots.

    This He-Man will not work , DC's armour instead is contemporary art and puts the character to another level, I mean he-man should not be conan simple as that; for sure his barbarian look is what most of us remember and appreciate due to the filmation series/early mini comics (alcala's influence) but the whole brand needs a fresh new re-styling for today's generations.
    Most of these headshots are merely inspired by the cancelled TF animated series
    I do think a cartoon made in the style of the 2013 mobile game could be the way to go (i.e. brainless stories and lots lots of combats & fight).

    Just my 2 cents
    "The most powerful man in the universe..."
    "Where hope seems lost..."
    "I was summoned on the future..."
    "A hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."
    Whats next ?
