    Oil Painting: "Guarding the Safety of Eternia" - The Classic He-Man Cardback

    Hello there!

    My new project has begun – I am actually working on my new painting.
    Once more I choose a very very classic pic you all know for sure.



    Of course there will be some changes. I will give much more details to the background, a wide view over Eternias landscape – including a distal Castle Grayskull – will be one of the aspects. This will be a daylight painting, but since there will be much space I added the moons at the sky, too.

    I began painting yesterday. So here is the first WIP shot of it - enjoy!

    The background is ready... some details will be added, of course - but now the figures can be included.
    Looking forward to that, I will make some portraits of the heroes in the way I ever saw them. Main influences for my character styles will be the german audioplays - so sorry, my Man-At-Arms will NOT be based on Tom Sellek.


    Here is the actual state, welcome to Eternia:

    Now that is a cool looking background. I only hope mine comes out close to half as good as that.

    Oh and do I see Castle Grayskull in the distance?
