    Super7 should tap this fellow to do the eventual Snake Mountain box art!

    Behind He-Man?

    Clamp Champ is in front of him but behind Teela.

    He-Man is engaged with King Hsss who is stand a bit behind and above He-Man if that is what you mean?

    Valenzuela's art always bothers me: the painted style and the colors are gorgeous, but his figures are nearly *all* drawing back their arms, no one, except perhaps Sssqueeze, is mid-strike. The figures look posed, or choreographed, and I thought that about the last piece as well. Compare this to Alex Ross, Simon Soltau (who references Alcala, Timm, and McCarthy), where the figures are depicted in the heat of battle, rather than at a moment where everyone is simultaneously about to strike (on cue?), and you'll see what I mean. Still really an attractive piece, but just tweaks me a bit.

    And what is going on with Man at Arm's head? Is it just me or is something off perspectively?

    Seems so. Trace a line up his spine and try to position his (imaginary) head in a way that the helmet would fall that way.

    His last print seemed like it was partially modeled with actual action figures (because of the somewhat stiff poses and the character choices, mainly), but this one seems a bit more organic, so in that sense it does seem like an improvement... just a few tweaky things.

    He was not in the cartoon, but he did have a mini-statue from NECA/Four Horsemen.
