Oh man... you've made Skeletor much more sinister here.  He looks like he wouldn't be out of place in World of Warcraft or a gritty fantasy novel.  The lighting effects are superb as well... though that orange glow in the bottom right corner makes me wonder if he's looking down on a scene of devastation, or if his cloak is on fire.  :XD:

You're welcome!  Apologies if my journal shows up in your feed a few times -- I generally keep features over four or five journals before replacing them.

So frightening... until he opens his mouth. He may look like the cover of a death metal album, but he sounds like a 1930s radio announcer dealing with sinus congestion and a stubbed toe. I have always found this contrast to be almost painfully funny.

But really, though, Alan Oppenheimer was one of the best things about the original animated series. He tried way harder than he needed to, and produced a host of genuinely funny moments.
