Toony Skeletor by ChrisOatley Toony Skeletor by ChrisOatley
I just launched my new Digital Painting Course and I could not be more excited. New students have been signing up every day and we are already having a BLAST!

I haven't worked THIS hard in probably six years. I can't even begin to describe how much this project put my focus and skills to the test. But it's alive now and everyone is very pleased with the results.

One of the things that kept me sane during the most challenging times was... Well, He-Man.

...his villains, anyway.

I started a series of "Toony" He-Man villains and although "Toony Trapjaw" is my favorite, this Skeletor is a close second.

If you're like me and you can never get enough He-man fanart, then check out my Toony Trapjaw and my Skeletor painting from a few years back...

Seeing this just inspires me to try digital painting even more, and I don't usually do that. xD

Very nice, Chris! I like the exaggerated Anatomy. He looks quite menacing. There is a nice looseness to your painting. I like this version of Skeletor a little better than the 09 one I think. Love your work!

I love it! Especially the expressive skull on his staff. Who says bones can't express themselves ;)

I also think this Skeletor would match his voice acting a little bit better...

The off-kilter pose really pushes the idea that this is a *much more dangerous* enemy for He-Man. Perfect...!

Oo, I really love this one! The pose and that staff, looks epic and kind of reminds me of the Joker! Great work once again Chris!

I'm such a big MOTU fan, really dig all of your MOTU pieces Chris. I get a great sense of exasperation from Skeletors pose and the way he's griping his staff, almost like he's twisting it in frustration at yet another defeat at the hands of He-Man... next time Skeletor, next time.

Awesome posture! There's such a great sense of his twisted nature in his body language. I really dig this Chris!
