Faker by Jackademus Faker by Jackademus
I honestly can't remember the last time I did a drawing that was just for the sheer hell of it. At least a couple of years ago. I've been so constantly busy that I'm really neglecting the fanboy in me.

So after hitting all my deadlines before the Easter break I thought bugger it, I'm doing something for me (well, and for all of you I guess, since I'm throwing it up here. Not throwing up as in puking but, anyway I digress)

So yeah, my MOTU Classics Faker turned up the other day (show of hands who else is collecting them please. Sit down, Dylan, we know about you) and I was so impressed with him, as I have been with all of them, I had to have a go as it were. So this is the only time I've ever drawn him I think, including when I was a kid. My MOTU drawings tend to revolve around Skeletor, Tri-Klops or Mer-Man.

Wow. Huge comments from Jack. Can you tell I'm home alone today?

Love how Anyone in Eternia could tell Faker was a fake He-Man with that color scheme XD

They made fun of Faker in a Robot Chicken sketch, where Skeletor had Tri-Klops make a blue version of He-Man to crash King Randor's birthday party.

If you do have the time, I suggest doing Webstor. Especially since the MOTU Classic version was so badass. Not to mention, so is your artwork.

What a good, fun art-style! :) It's got a little bit of McGuinness, a little bit of Mike Young Productions, and a lotta' yourself.

Huge fan of Masters of the Universe.

Though you already know that. ;)

Great piece and I concur with others; I hope to see more MOTUC-related art. Hopefully future figure-releases will inspire you. :D


I always liked Faker. There was a lot of potential for the character, yet he ended up being underused for nearly every material he was featured in. :(

Props for giving him a spotlight.

Aww brilliant. I remember the figure of faker, but I never had him, I used to play with my friends one whenever we combined all our he-man toys together for a big play. It's a bit of a bummer that faker wasn't quite as blue and iconic in the series. Excellent job.

Looks great Jack. I needed to change me desktop so Faker shall adorn it.

Never owned the toy of Faker as a kid, but always wanted to. Wish he'd looked like that in the cartoon.

They did do quite a bit with their stock footage and the cartoon still holds up surprisingly well now, unlike most 80's toons.

Faker was never really used like he should've. An evil clone that would ruin a hero's reputation is cliche' but not if done right.
Faker was my favorite toy from the MOTU line. Even more than He-man.
This is a beautiful pic!!!

Yeah, but didn't you and I talk about doing something later on after you'd been working for a couple years,
and you were busy on other projects?
That's what I have bouncing around in the back of my head anyway. :D
