    Sazariel Gallery - Though Heroes Fall

    These digital images - there are more to come - are NOT my own work (I don't have anything like this degree of talent!) but were done to illustrate a MotU story of mine by a digital artist friend, Sazariel.

    The piece itself - with the images in their proper context - may be found here: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...Tale-of-He-Man

    Thank-you for this; given your own artistic talent then your words are all the more appreciated - and I shall pass them on to the artist with great pleasure!

    Well - you may be right; I let the artist read the tale and come out with her own interpretation and didn't interfere. He does look a little less - dominant - than the average rendition of H-M, true.
    I suppose she was thinking of a younger and more vulnerable version of the hero at the outset of his career.

    Still, she has real talent as a digital artist, I hope you would agree - even if the interpretation isn't to all tastes!

    You know, I really like this artwork. It is different from what we usually see and very realistic and lifelike too. The artist must have a lot of skill and talent.

    I like very much the lighting effects and the composition of the characters and backgrounds.

    They really fit the story as well.

    But I would like He-Man to look more big and muscled, I think. But in the story he is only young and inexperienced so this may be why he looks so here maybe?

    But all the same it is very good! And the story is very good too!

    He-Man in the maw of the serpent photo He-Manhunginchains_zps777f967a.jpg
    For the Hero of Eternia was suspended from the great arch of the cavern itself, within the hollow head of the snake. There he hung on high, his limbs spread wide, held on the unsupporting air by long chains which vanished into the gloom beyond. His near-naked body was lit like a man of new-cast bronze, shining in the sullen and burning glow of the mountain’s fires below him; the very air shimmered and shifted with their heat in which he must slowly be roasting. And there was but one way to come at him – that one, slender buttress of carved rock which flung itself across the gullet of the snake, highest of all the galleries and spurs of stone. Before them was the open floor of the cavern – above them the many rising levels, all of which culminated in that single slender span – and that spread-eagled figure hung there so unnaturally like the cruelest possible parody of a bird in flight.
    From: Though Heroes Fall, Chapter Nine.

    Interesting take on MOTU. He-Man could stand to be a little more beefy. This guys closer to Adam's build. The lighting, skin, textures and renders look really professional, but the overall lack of clothing, and the emphasis on bondage is a little XXX. Have you ever read 50 Shades of Grayskull?

    "So why Oo-Lar? The answer is simple. We really couldn't afford to put boots on He-Man, or sculpt exciting new bracers or armor components. We're just too broke. In a first for any figure- bare feet."

    “I HAVE THE POWER!”




    The Sword flared with inner light; sheer raw energy ran radiant along its length as it was held high aloft – and Skeletor turned away from the ineffable beauty he could no longer bear to look upon, a bright vision of incorruption he had long ago forfeited. And doubt shook him – and fear, for he dared not face this new-risen might. Almost against his will he spoke as he stood transfixed in horror and wonder at the sheer potency of the power which surged in silent streams about him.

    “How, in the name of all that’s evil –?”

    He-Man stood there before him, very plainly free from the bonds of his captivity which trailed now broken from his limbs; with a snarl the massive figure flexed its arms and the manacles of Horde Steel which had so long restrained him burst asunder and flew in fragments. With two taps from the blade that burned so bright in his hand those about his ankles were shattered into shards. And He-Man, arisen from darkness, turned to the Lord of Destruction and the light of his countenance was terrible to behold.
