He-Man and the Masters print preview

(Click to embiggen)
Pencils for my main print I'll be trying to push on people at the con, my favorite characters from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (minus Evil-Lynn and Mossman, who I somehow neglected). I guess I'm running on an action figures nostalgia theme? Now it just awaits inks and colours from your hero and mine, Adam Metcalfe. This is just a preview, the final piece won't be cropped as tight around the edges. The print and the original will be on hand at FanExpo at the end of the month. 

Somewhat a labour of love on this one--He-Man was my first passion as a kid, predating Spider-Man, Ghostbusters, TMNT, Bucky O'Hare and Aquaman. I had He-Man and Skeletor as early as my first Christmas; More cautious parents wouldn't have let these choking hazards into such small hands, but mom and dad were wise enough to know sometimes the coolness of space barbarians supersedes the survival of their first born past infancy.

That's beautiful, man. Unfortunately, I'm not a He-Man fan, so I probably won't be picking this up. It all depends on the finished product; it might sway me!

Thanks man--He-Man's a bit of an old property but the response to my sketches was so good at the June con I figured I had to give a full action figure lineup shot a go!
