    Hello from Burbank !!

    Thank you for clearing my account and giving me access to this great forum.

    My name is Charles Zembillas. I'm the last artist from the original development team at Filmation Studios when the He-Man animated series started in 1982. I was there the day a production manager came in with a big box full of action figures and vehicles from Mattel when we were told this was going to be our next cartoon.

    I did a lot of work on He-Man right at the beginning of the series even before they started hiring animators. I worked on layout on the very first episode that went into production "The She Demon of Phantos". I designed the first original characters for the series (other than Orko). I did a lot of work on season 2 of He-Man and did a large amount of development for She-Ra. I was a lead designer for the studio's follow up series Brave-Starr. I had many special moments at Filmation.

    I have a lot of never before seen art that I created from my time at Filmation. Pages and pages of it.

    I'm also know for my character design work in video games with Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, and Jak and Daxter. I'm the owner / director / founder of my school The Animation Academy in Burbank California. I've been running my school since 1998 and taught many of the leading artists in the industry.

    Recently I heard that the MOTU franchise is going to continue with an animated series on Netflix. The news about "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" inspired me to draw He-Man again for the first time in a long long while. I've seen the art on the Gallery section of the forums. It's fun, imaginative and of high quality. I'm looking for a dedicated place to share some of my recent He-Man drawings. I'd like to creatively participate with the talented people here.

    That said thank you again for the privilege and best wishes!
