    Gbagok Presents Neoclassics

    I wasn't going to start this now, but Penny Dreadful encouraged me to post this in support of King Helios in the MOTUC polls. I've been meaning to start drawing characters in a Classics style, and this seemed like a good place to start.

    King Helios (who surprisingly doesn't have a support thread of his own!) didn't have a large part or a complex design in Filmation, but it was cool to see a whole people made of living fire. Their king, Helios, wasn't a villain, but he was definitely hostile when he thought He-Man had stolen the Spellstone from the Region of Flame.



    I first drew the armor for Fire Armor Skeletor, but decided it looked too evil and too 200x-y to go with the character. So I turned to the artwork provided by James Eatock in the Complete Guide to the Classic Animated Adventures by Dark Horse. I added a few minor details to the armor and I think it would work well on a Helios figure.

    I didn't include it but the armor could also come in transluscent red, along with other accessories to match the rest of Helios. These combinations could lend themselves over to an army builder.

    I hope to post more along with the other series I'm doing for Universe Tours and Unofficial bios.

    Wow Gbagok this is a big and unexpected surprise. The more 1980s-designs for He-Man, Skelly and Beast Man look fantastic. This is a great new thread. Looking forward to many more NeoClassics.

    Yes, it would create to incorporate these as re-dos for already existing bios and tours.

    Glad you posted these, Eric!

    No support thread for King Helios?! Well, then I guess I'll need to remedy that.

    Definitely like what gbagok did with King Helios and I really like the incorporation of Fire Armor Skeletor's armor.
    I have finally returned from Despondos.

    Thank you Gbagok. This is a good start.

    Now, I know I [may] sound like a broken record, but it would be really cool if you used those samples of He-Man, Skeletor and Beast Man as re-dos for existing tours and bios. Or maybe do them in a different thread. Like you could make new bios in a new style (say like what Super7 did with the bios for the Ultimate figures) and do the classic exploding red rocks from the vintage line packaging as background for the characters (like you did with the Grayskull tours).

    I think that would be awesome to see characters re-done in Classics style in the bios and tours. It would be much appreciated.

    I really dig this. Going back to the beginning is a great way to refresh. Also now tat the Horseman aren't hampered by Super 7, it opens the door to try new ideas and executions. I've been wanting interchangeable hands forever and some figures with QC issues need to be revisited (Roboto).
