    MOTU Toon Concepts

    So totally for fun I decided to try and do some character concepts for a completely hypothetical new MOTU toon.

    I got so far and decided that I had had enough (at least for the time being).

    But seeing as I have done some work I thought I may as well share it with all of you (because I am nice like that)



    as to the identity of that mystery person... I honestly have no idea. I would have figured that out when I started adding the details

    I like that style. That style would make for a great toon.

    well I managed to finish He-Man and Orko


    He-Man and Orko - Character Designs by shubcthulhu on deviantART

    if you don't want to see the bigger version on DA the bios are:

    HE-MAN

    Real Name: Adam of the Wun-Dar Tribe

    The only son of Chief Vikor of the Wun-Dar tribe, Adam saved a woman in trouble who revealed herself to be the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull. He was gifted with a magical sword and immense strength to protect the castles secrets from the forces of evil, most notable the vile sorcerer "SKELETOR"

    ORKO

    Real Name: Orko the Great

    Hailing from a dimension named "Trolla" the young magician once cast a spell that went terribly wrong and was accidentally sent to Eternia. Lost and alone for days with no way back home, he was discovered and befriended by the heroic He-Man. While the Sorcerss could easily send him home Orko chooses to stay to help his new friends protect the secrets of Castle Grayskull (and provide them with some light entertainment)

    I like your concept art and even Orko looks good(i´m not an Orko fan).

    Only He-Mans hair is to perfect and not tribal enough for me. With that hair he reminds me of a blonde Zac Efron. True this guy looks good and all but he is no He-Man
    *Peekablue *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Hawke *Pebblass(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    I love these designs and bios!!! I fully support having the pre-filmation barbarian He-Man (not much fan of the whole "prince" idea) in a cartoon. And loved that you brought Adam as the real name of the tribesman that was chosen to be the He-Man by the Sorceress/Goddess. This is a brilliant way to merge the two versions into one.

    True he doesn't have messy barbarian hair but that is because unlike Conan he knows the value of a good shampoo

    Ya I have thought for a while if they did a new toon they should go back to his barbarian roots, so that is what I did (with the odd nod to the Prince Adam version as well of course).

    It would be great if a new MOTU cartoon could bring back the mini comic He-Man.

    Wun-dar tribe, huh? Guess that makes Adam a Wun-dar-kind.

    Looks really good finished.

    Nice. Wouldn't mind seeing a take on the classic scene of Skeletor using a portal to transport others of his kind in the same style.

    Hope this doesn't disappoint you both then

    He-Man now has someone to battle


    Skeletor - Character Design by shubcthulhu on deviantART

    the bio reads:

    SKELETOR

    Real Name: Keldor of Infinita


    An evil and powerful skull-faced sorcerer from the dark dimension of Infinita, the young Keldor's lust for power knew no end. So when he discovered that the greatest power in all the known universes resided within the walls of Castle Grayskull he quickly made his way to Eternia in order to claim it for himself. However he was defeated at every turn by the guardians of the castle, led by the “muscle-bound oaf” - HE-MAN


    But Keldor is nothing if not tenacious. Taking over the long abandoned “Snake Mountain” in the dark-hemisphere of Eternia, and renaming himself “Skeletor”, he gathered together a group of (mostly) loyal followers to aid him in his never ending quest to defeat He-Man and learn the castle's secrets

    Thanks a lot, happy to see you like it.

    In the meantime here is the finished Teela


    Teela - Character Design by shubcthulhu on deviantART

    BIO -

    TEELA

    Real Name: Teela

    Since an early age Teela was taught by her adoptive father Duncan (aka Man-At-Arms) how to fight. Excelling at the various martial arts disciplines that she had been instructed in (either by her father or by masters he is acquainted with) she soon the moniker of “Warrior Goddess” due to her prodigious skills

    However, what Teela is not aware of is the true reason her father put her through all this training. Unbeknownst to Teela is that she is actually the daughter / clone of the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull and is destined to one day take her place. The training is to help her obtain the grace and focus she will need to fulfill that role when the day comes.

    and so it is not too one sided Trap-Jaw has arrived to aid Skeletor


    Trap-Jaw - Character Design by shubcthulhu on deviantART

    TRAP-JAW



    Real Name: Kronis



    Once a pirate named Kronis who hailed from the Tri-Solar System, a small system located within the dreaded war-torn area of space known as “The Fright Zone” (which also includes the infamous “Horde World”). He was hired by Skeletor to take part in yet another ill-fated attempt on Castle Grayskull, his role being to attack the Palace of Eternos to draw most of the heroic forces there.


    The plan failed and Kronis was badly injured, nearing death. Skeletor just kept him barely alive using his magic powers and then he offered him a deal. He would spare his life, not just spare...make him better. The price? Eternal Servitude. With no other option, Kronis was no more and Trap-Jaw was born

    Finally got round to doing another guy. This time it is my favorite character from the She-Ra cartoon


    IMP - Character Design by shubcthulhu on deviantART

    IMP

    Real Name: Imp

    When Hordak came up with the idea of being able to alter his own body to form various machines and weaponry, in order to make himself more powerful than he already was, it was up to his loyal team of Horde Scientists to figure out how to do it. Finally they created a device which they believed could be the answer to the solution. The problem was it would only work on someone with the same (or extremely close) DNA as Hordak himself as it had been designed with him in mind.


    So in order to test the device they used a DNA sample from Hordak to create a small test subject and then successfully tested the device on the creature, granting it tremendous shapeshifting ablities. Taking a shine to the small creature, Hordak decided to name it “Imp” and it soon became one of his most loyal followers. Because of his small size he is nearly always underestimated, however his ability to shapeshift into anything (including working machines) and his complete control over his own genetic structure makes Imp quite powerful and basically immortal


    and just to get an idea of how big / small he actually is
