Here is my new painting "He-Man: The Prophecy Of The Legend". 
It is the recreation of the last page of the very classic minicomic "King Of Castle Grayskull" as a huge oil painting 80/120 cms (about 31,5 x 47,2 inches). 

The original art was made by Alfredo Alcala 35 years ago. The painting's title is taken from the original page text itself, witch you can see here:www.he-man.org/assets/images/collect_toy/mastersuniversecomic22.jpg

As always I put in some easter eggs and hommages. You can find Tri Klops there for example, directly taken from a famous promo Poster by William George.

An interesting question was how to paint the spirit of Grayskull. In the original artwork it is more like smoke that has the shape of a skull. But I didn't want it to look like the dark mark from Harry Potter. I listened to a german audio play, when the narrator exactly told me how to solve it. "A skull seemed to waft amidst a reddish smoke cloud." Sometimes things can be so easy. 

The painting process took about 2.5 months. Enjoy!

¡Gracias! Hay una gran diferencia entre la artesanía y el arte digital. Trabajo mucho con gráficos digitales, pero siempre veré mi verdadera pasión en la pintura clásica. No se trata de lidiar más rápido, disfruto cada minuto que pinto. Disculpe mi español, utilicé el traductor de Google.

I'm not an artist myself, but I feel that being able to stare at a painting, even if it's just a low-res watermarked depiction of it, to soak in the profound representation of the universe, characters and the landscape, then it's an amazing and wonderful piece of art!

I completely enjoy this "Masters of the Universe" painting you've put out. It's so accurate to the franchise as a whole.
