    Joe Ng Artwork of MOTU Heroes and Villains




    Hey...The Goddess is in the same pic as the Sorceress! And Ram Man is a core character!!! LOL!

    Maybe these will be better received than the DC Comic redesigns...

    Hey guys!

    Matt Moylan, Managing Editor of UDON Entertainment here. We actually produced this artwork for Mattel quite some time ago. Glad they finally found a place to show it off! Lots of huge MOTU fans at UDON (myself and UDON CEO, Erik Ko both have MOTUC subscriptions), so we were super excited to get to work on some official MOTU artwork.

    The full artwork credits:
    Line art by Joe Ng http://ngboy.deviantart.com/
    Colors by Espen Grundetjern http://espeng.deviantart.com/

    PS: I also did the flat colors on these myself to save Espen some time.... but also just to get to say I actually worked on some official MOTU artwork.

    Looks really good, everything is awesome the only 2 minor things is he-mans hair looks a bit odd and skeletor could look a little scarier but other then that for me this is really good.

    I do remember Mattel was picky about the hair. They specifically wanted that toy hair shape (not wind-blown or anything). I think it worked out okay but I understand your point

    Also if we were working on this today, we would have given Sorceress multi-colored inside wing feathers to stay in line with the figure. At the time, MOTUC Sorceress didn't exist, so we had to imagine her classicized based on the vintage figure/filmation. Ditto with Ram Man.

    Why MAA is attacking Ram Man ?

    Why Stratos kicking Orko's butt ?

    Why BC standing on top of mountain like a Zoar ?

    Why Panthor is hidding like a chicken **** ??

    I think they just got some wires crossed with their PR people. They probably mean ALVIN Lee, who did produce some other MOTU anniversary art, and is actually also a former UDON artist. But he was not involved with these pieces.

    That sentence is in reference to a debate in this forum from a week or two ago, whether or not you considered Ram Man to be a core character.

    These are amazing, I wish those would have been covers for comic books or something, or just let Udon produce MOTU comics in general since I'm more or less indifferent/disappointed with DC's grimmdark hullabaloo . Also kudos for pulling off Teela in the cobra headdress, it's really hard to do that without making her look awkward LOL! Also why I love Earl Norem's work since he also managed to make it look good in that "Mask of Evil" cover from the 80s, can't say the same for the interior art however.
    Visit my art page at: http://theblock.deviantart.com/ , if you like my work and have an account there to, feel free to fave or watch me, I could use the street cred !

    I've loved Joe Ng's work since Udon's Street Fighter series!

    Nice I'm pretty familiar with Udon Studios and those guys are primarily Street Fighter related artists but I like the look as it may not be consider THE LOOK, but it's a new fresh take on it and the villains pic.... LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEE It!

    Any explanation why Orko looks so messed up?
    Small beady-eyes?
    Large scarf over the mouth, as if the scarf is expanding?

    Sorry. My inner-fan wonders about stuff like this, since Orko is a character that seems would be easy to get it "right".

    Fantastic artwork.

    These should be used for the 2013 MOTUC blister cards.

    I'd love to see PoP, NA, and the Horde.

    Hmm, I think that's just Joe's less cartoony interpretation.Besides having normal sized eyes, doesn't seem TOO far from Classics Orko... though I do notice now that Orko has 5 fingers... oops
