    And here is the second to last entry:

    CAPRICORN

    http://www.angelfire.com/ok4/niki/im...cornRamMan.jpg

    Ibexī are known to be headstrong and use their horns for battles. When two male Ibex fight each other the run towards each other and when their horns hit the noise can be heard for miles up in the mountains. They are really strong. So there was no doubt whom i have to chose for that zodiac sign.

    I took my favorite representation for him which is his early mini comics version. Where he was shown as a young headstrong warrior who was even taller than He-Man and as equally handsome. That color scheme just works for me and i always admired the way his armor was drawn and colored. The early mini comics had amazing artists.
    Again another nice entry. Yeah Ram Man of mini comics and filmation really are presented nicely which is dividing fans on whose version is better. Nice choice on going with the mini comics colors.

    FILMATION Ram-Man is funny and almost cute but thatīs not my take on him or most MOTU/POP characters to be honest. Thatīs when i have choice i mostly choose from the mini comics and sometimes 200X but Ram-Mans MYP cartoon representation didīt win me over as well. I guess when it come stop him iīm really picky

    Thank you. Iīm glad you like Ram-Man and well here it is the last entry:

    AQUARIUS



    The zodiac sign Aquarius is a tricky and complicated one. Most people assume it is one of the water signs but it is not itīs an air sign. So there was only one character who fits that profile a spaceship pilot wearing a scuba dive suit.

    I took references from his action figure, the MOTUC figure and the mini comics. But i wanted to streamline him even further to give his outfit a regular scuba dive suit look. The only thing i really didn't like is that weird dome thing i simply ignored that

    His color scheme reminded me of Gloria Baker from Mask. They used all the primary colors on her and for some reason on him as well.

    Can we get some behind the scenes stuff and maybe some test stuff that you did? You know "Dvd extras"? That would be so cool to see your process. These would make a very interesting calender.

    Griffen Is not My real name, just what I aspire to be.

    I collect MOTU/POP, Transformers, Garfield the Cat, & 80's/90's Book & Tape/Record Sets. I collect VHS & DVD of 80's-00's properties. I get comic books, novels, & ViewMaster Reels as well. If you want to discuss this stuff & other things, then PM me here on the .org. I enjoy anime, video games, & sci-fi, too. DC or Marvel, it's all good.

    Hahahaha

    Thatīs a funny idea and yes i can do that:

    Let me start with scans. With some characters i have specific ideas how the should look and i draw them or their poses out of memory:

    Drissi:



    But i wasnīt sure if i wanted her with her staff or without and so i gave myself both options.

    Zodac:



    I decided i want to give him that stockier look the early mini comic figures had and on that scan it shows how iīm not satisfied with my own stuff and iīm correcting my self with little arrows
    Plus with him iīm using the power of mirroring. Since he is drawn from the front i simply had to draw one leg and one arm and hand and the other i could copy paste and modify only a little bit.

    WOW! Drissi looks great here. She looks like she is wearing a more skintight outfit here instead of those layered robes. Well Mara did look better in the back half of NA, so maybe Drissi could use some "Battle Armor" as well. Love your choices of anatomy here for all of the ladies, Adora as well.

    Do you maybe have some more riskay looking pictures for some of these ladies? Not X-Rated but maybe sexier than we usually see them drawn as?

    And I know that I can Google "Rule 34" pics of the POP and MOTU cast for anyone that wants to be a smart aleck <--- wanted to use another word but forums would have sensored me anyway.

    Hahahaha no, i donīt draw women in bikinis or stuff like that. Not my thing. The slave girl from the snake men is wearing basically a bikini and even her i drew with even more fabric. But here is the link if you want to check her out:

    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...=1#post3054293

    And regarding Drissi in a more armored outfit, i can help you with that. I gave her such an outfit but still a lot of pink and a skirt:

    Thank you, thatīs five years ago but it still hold up

    Another approach for me is taking references and use them for the characters. Sometimes i use myself like i mentioned for Carnivus:



    The tricky part with that was the picture ended at my waist and my head is to small for an animal hybrid like Carnivus.

    So - another layer of lines had to be added:



    His head has different proportions than a human standard head and to be honest my head is rather small anyway so i had to find a middle ground.

    And the other approach i used are iconic poses from the cartoon and i translate them for my purpose:



    I like to use different colors for the layers and lines so i can see them more clearly:

    Those are interesting techniques @Niki
    But the real question is, what is the next motu/pop project?

    Hm...good question actually... i have a few old ones i never finished but these arenīt that big. I have no new project to be honest...

    Any way i will rep this project up with my last behind the scene picture. Before i started shading them i flat colored them to have a rough idea how they will look with the backdrop:



    Thatīs it folks thatīs my behind the scene look and how my work process looks like.

    I hope you had fun and i can say: i really had
