The dedication you show to integrating the disparate canons is absolutely awe-inspiring. Every new bio feels like a revelation. I want to commend you for your work on these & every other bio (or thread) of yours I've come across. I'm very excited to dig into your fics, but this thread was top of my list.

    I found it during the course of some research I've been doing into Catra; there are a lot of unsubstantiated claims on her entry over at Wiki Grayskull, including someone making her official picture your art of her with no credit! I intend to fix it, but I want to make sure I've got all my facts straight before I start running my mouth. The way it led me here is that her home is listed as the island of Purrsia, with a rambling and grammatically fraught narrative I can find no other evidence of. I've been going through old sources--the comics, the ladybird books, you name it--but the earliest reference I've been able to find to Purrsia as a location is your bio from 2010. (Admittedly I have not listened to the audio plays, but I'm given to understand she's a fairy of sorts in them anyway).

    I realize it's been 11 years so this isn't exactly a fresh subject, but based on your He-Ra bio referring to a historical Queen Purrsia I've sort of hypothesized that you were basing (at least her) off of the Wonder Woman and the Star Riders character rather than any official MOTU lore. Could you confirm or deny? And if you have any further ideas about Purrsia I for one would be delighted to hear them (though perhaps on your fan characters thread, depending on your answer)!

    Thank you for all your hard work! Maybe it's just because I read over 90 pages of this in 2 days but people have been very demanding of your time, and I want to make sure you know how deeply this thread has affected me. It's how I discovered this whole site, and it's led me to fascinating places as I tried to understand the world you were laying out. Every bio, every idle sketch or offhand comment, is a gift that we are lucky to receive. Please take your time with any future bios you may share, and follow your artistic spirit wherever it may lead you, even if it's away from this thread! I don't know how to sign off here so uhhh. Excelsior!
    Well said!!!

    Gbagok archive update: A few extras I found

    Since the last time I posted here, I've updated several versions of the images in the webpages section of my gbagok archive, like his The Book of Evil illustrations, so they are the higher-quality oimg-header versions instead of the noisier, lower quality img-header versions. Sadly, I can't even do that any more, as Photobucket has tightened its url restrictions even further than ever, and all its accessible images are now exclusively in WebP format. Fortunately, I think I just about got all his images beforehand, except for one I recently discovered: uniquor_rough.jpg. Though perhaps too little too late, I added uniquor_rough.jpg.webp to the archive's horde folder. I already previously downloaded Uniquor's full-size bio, except its curves are jagged, and I suspect it was the result of improper downscaling.

    I also added images and image zips from the following archives:
    https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...h.jpg~original
    https://www.deviantart.com/orionpax0...-Art-863268471
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums

    Finally, know that the archive also contains an #Upscales folder, containing a few of gbagok's images on which I used waifu2x to try to denoise and/or magnify them. The one of uniquor_rough came out particularly well, and should make up for missing the original jpg.

    All in all, the size of my gbagok image archive has gone up from 2.37 GB to 2.70 GB. Here is the link, which is the same one I posted before:

    Thank you so much for your stunning work Gbagok, that's the 200X reboot designs I like the most for MOTU characters and your versions are so well done they look like official design <3

    I'm a little sad the 3rd season was canceled so we couldn't see She-Ra in it, even thought her design was leaked and it was amazing

    Also thanks a lot Mirrorman95 since the Photobucket gallery is password protected and I didn't find it in the first post (as mentioned previously).

    Gbagok, did Mattel ask you for permission to use your Sun-Man bio or did they just simply grabbed it?

    I didn't think anyone asked, but I'd have said yes if they did. I'm glad he's in MOTU now though really sorry it's for Origins and not Collector's Choice.

    Also, I just wanted to celebrate Blackstar’s anniversary!

    I absolutely LOVE what you did with the Blackstar characters here. Really inspiring!

    Tying Blackstar to Queen Marlena might be the only thing that could get me on-board with her as an Earthling.

    I believe this Blackstar, in Mattel's MOTU Filmation series, would be my ultimate dream come true.
    Who do I have to beg for they really do?

    PS
    Can I dare ask you to show the reunited PowerStar, in case of a possible dedicated biographical card?
    I love the design of that object

    Photobucket won't let me download these as PNGs, only as WebPs, and I strongly suspect Photobucket lowered the resolution and gave it lossy compression as well. Is there any chance you could upload your bios to any other site going forward?

    I view the thread on my phone or tablet. I just hold down on the image and it allows me to download the image in PNG format. Hope this assists

    I'm kind of stuck with photobucket. As far as saving, you can try copying and pasting them into an application to save them off.
