My inks for the upcoming Towers of Etheria project, based in the Masters of the Universe / He-Man / She-Ra continuity.

The idea (and words below) for the concept is by :iconm3gr1ml0ck:

As the Towers of Eternia feature good (Grayskull), Evil (Viper) and balance (Central), the Towers of Etheria feature magic (Crystal), science (Fright) and a "middle point" which changes every time the Side Towers appear on the surface of the planet.

In this specific event, the Side Towers appeared at the Crystal Falls site, and their power trasformed the landscape into the Falls Tower, featuring dangers such as the carnivorous flower and wonders such as the Omnipresence Mirror (whose surface sometimes shows two baleful red eyes floating in a corridor of infinite darkness).
The Crystal Waters have been transformed as well, rejecting the Rebellion's magical users, and becoming a crystalizing threat for the Horde Technology.
As soon as the Side Towers vanished, looking for another building to transform, the Falls Tower remains forever changed, adopting the name of Crystall Falls palace.

riconosco il castello di cristallo di She-Ra ma gli altri edifici non me li ricordo

Cheers. I had so much fun drawing this while listening to Iron Maiden! :D
It's all part of an upcoming project.

ohhhhhhhhh snap. Now I'm curious. I definitely have to see what you're up to now. :D 
JoeTeanby's avatar
Yeah, all will be revealed soon. Definitely challenging for me not drawing giant robots :)

wonderfully detailed ... do I detect a hint of ruler usage?
JoeTeanby's avatar
Cheers Razz. There was indeed a spot of ruler usage. I tried to keep it to a minimum though :)

darn impressive! :nod:

Thanks very much. I really enjoyed drawing this. This was a rare occasion for a larger drawing where I drew it all in one night, rather than having to come back to it the next day. It was a struggle to keep it all on the one page though.

all in one sitting?
that takes dedication!

And possibly some intoxicating substances on the side... :)
JoeTeanby's avatar
Beer and drawing are a fine mix! :)

Very cool!  I vaguely remember this as She-ra's Castle Greyskull.
JoeTeanby's avatar
Cheers.
That's Crystal Castle on the right. It's shinier and has less giant skulls! :)
hellbat's avatar
I meant to say She-ra's version of Castle Greyskull ;)
JoeTeanby's avatar
To be honest I don't know a lot about the towers. I only know Castle Greyskull and Crystal Castle, and hadn't really heard of the Fright Zone until this project. I haven't seen any He-man or She-Ra since it was on TV in the 80's, so I'm learning a lot here, which is really cool. :)

I don't think I've heard Fright Zone either.  I do remember seeing some of an episode of a new He-Man cartoon which actually looked pretty good (from what I saw it anyway), but I never saw any more of it.
saganich's avatar
Fright Zone is Hordak's domain/hq/base/somethinglikethat in the She-Ra cartoon. As in, the hot-spot of evil (like the Snake Mountain over on Eternia)
I think so, at least.....it's been a while.
hellbat's avatar
Ah OK, thanks :)
JoeTeanby's avatar
That sounds cool.
I hope it was similar to the recent Thundercats series. I watched all of that and loved it.
hellbat's avatar
I'd say it was to similar standard, although I saw it before the new Thundercats cartoon came out.

Yeah, I was getting into the new Thundercats for the first few shows, but after I missed a few episodes here and there, I sort of lost interest.  I need to watch it from the start again some time.

Very nicely inked!  Every detail is crystal-clear.
JoeTeanby's avatar
Thanks very much. That Fright Zone was a bit of a nightmare to draw :)

Gorgeous. Please tell me you plan to (eventually) color this.
