Skeletor - flat color

I was reading an old comic the other day, and on the back cover was an advertisement for Masters of the Universe: The Power of He-Man(a video game for the Intellivision and Atari 2600). It was actually a pretty good rendering of He-Man and his arch-enemy, battling valiantly in front of ol' Greyskull, and it made me realize that I haven't drawn a He-Man character since I was a little kid. So, I did something about it.

Here sits Skeletor, weary atop his throne at Snake Mountain. Near as I can tell, he's just noticed Evil-Lyn has decided to snap a photo. I'm not sure whether I think Skeletor's the kind of guy who gets grumpy when people take photos, or whether he's a total camera whore. I mean, he's got serious egotism issues, so it could go either way.

I'll do a better colored version of this later. I just finished the linework today, and blocked in the color nice and quick so I could post it here as WIP.

Done entirely in GIMP.

Skeletor was definitely one of my very first favorite baddies. You did an excellent job bringing out his merry grin. ;-)
