Ol' Skullface


Alright. Here's hoping this will inspire the Timberline guys to post up some Masters art. I thought that this might be a less than popular topic, but I went for it anyways. MOTU was a huge part of my childhood, and I still love it to this day. Sure it was ridiculous, and now synical grown-ups can look back at the cartoon as being homo-erotic...but I remember He-Man as one of my first super heroes. There wasn't anything he couldn't accomplish. Literaly the MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE UNIVERSE. I still get chills when I hear that Filmation jingle, and then the most awesome theme song ever. For me, as a kid...it was empowering. Probably the same reason I listen to heavy metal music as an adult.

If there was one thing I always regreted, was that they ended up making Skeletor and his minions a bunch of jerks. They got dumber and dumber each season...each episode even. So here's my tribute to evil...when I played with my action figures, these guys were always badass. Enjoy.

Color version coming soon...

Cheers
Patrick
