    Skeletor vs He-Man! An awesome painting by Reyhan!

    I would like to share this fantastic drawing created by the Indonesian artist Reyhan, and posted by him on DeviantArt, which brings in life the eternal and epic struggle between He-Man and Skeletor through an awesome Fantasy style, that reminded me of Ryan Barger's incredible depiction of the MOTU characters and their Universe!

    And Happy New Year to all MOTU fans!

    It is impressive.

    No doubt about that but itīs somehow not really MOTU for me.

    At has all the things but in the end itīs to violent for my taste and to dark. But as i said thatīs just my opinion.

    But the artist seems to be very talented!

    It is very, very well done.

    ..however, He-Man's chest piece has no iron cross, also Skeletor's havoc staff has no pearl.

    Soo, yous will just have to just erase it and start over.

    I should also like to say that I don't know why the battle is eternal, most fencing matches take seconds to finalize. Of course waiting for the perfect story depiction to be made public seems like an eternal struggle.

    (thanks for sharing, though)

    I wouldn't say that it's too dark. It's not darker from the Vintage Toys box art, or some Earl Norem's paintings. Actually it reminds me the atmosphere of the box art, only in this case is more modern and specifically digital artwork (which actually it's something that personally i would love to see more in case of MOTU, i mean the digital artwork).

    And i wouldn't consider it too violent either. He-Man is grabbing Skeletor, in order to push him or throw him somewhere, like he did in the cartoons (his sword is on the other hand, away from Skeletor).

    I agree that the artist is very talented. Also loved to see Skeletor using his magic to create a giant snake, in order to keep Battle Cat away. It's great to see Skelly using the vast variety of his magic powers.

    I absolutely love it! Well, except for He-Man's beard. To me, this guy needs to be clean-shaven.
    What doesn’t kill me makes me froggier.

    King He-Man has a beard and mustache, so I like to think(justify?) this is he-man shortly before he becomes king he-man.

    Yah. I know the timeline may be off. sue me.

    It's the artist's own take on the characters. He's free to do as he chooses.

    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2017!

    oh. upon closer look I can see why/how you would say that.

    Still think it's mega epic.

    I believe that the artist is using as point of reference, Ryan Barger's "Defender of Grayskull" masterpiece, in which He-Man has also a little beard.

    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...Grayskull-quot

    Of course it's extremely difficult to approach Ryan's perfect artwork style, but He-Man aside and nonetheless Reyhan's final result it's an epicly awesome and dynamic drawing.

    You must be right, but oddly the beard didn't bother me so much on Ryan's artwork. Here, I can't help thinking that He-Man somehow looks like a blond Abe Lincoln on steroids.
    Still epic, though.

    Generally it looks good but He-Man's face is too lion like. He reminds me a lot of Vincent from the old Beauty and the Beast tv show

    Take a look at my attempts at coloring

    and if you get the chance
