    VINTAGE MOTU BATTLE Licensee Art Colored by JAFARISTEW! HE-MAN/BEAST-MAN/GODDESS etc

    Hey gang!
    I had a fun idea to color some of the vintage "Battle" art from the "1981 Masters Of The Universe Licensee Book!!" You probably had some of the images from that book on your lunchboxes, stickers, etc. as a kid, (I know I did! ) ...I always enjoyed the illustrations (although I have not been able to find out who the artist is, any help is appreciated) & I thought coloring some of that fantastic line art from the book would definitely be a great nostalgic exercise for the 30th!! So enjoy! Line art copyright of Mattel & Colors by Jafaristew!

    Really nice work here! I like that you took inspiration from different sources and the colors came out great. Nice to see some Skeletor art where his face isn't all yellow or bone colored.

    The P&H Foundation just revealed the artist who did the line work for these classic illustrations was known other than Errol McCarthy! So I wanted to mention & accredit him for his amazing work I colored here!
