adora and she-ra...testing design and style by nebezial adora and she-ra...testing design and style by nebezial
its fun to keep things fresh by changing ones approach to style every now and then

so staying true to my previous subject matter i went and drew me an adora to she-ra ratio. i lovesd in the heman rebooted series the fact that adam was a kid, a teenager, it made the whole noone knows he is he-man premise plausible.

so i wenth with the same idea for adora, but kept the orifginal sword design. its an unbeatable classic

i figure adora is a kid who id afraid of shera to some degree, power of universe, living lightning in ones veins, it is an overwhelming experience. also i figure that adora is clumsy with pulling the sword out given its size

yeah... just brainfarting, but it is fun nevertheless

Love this concept !  It's too bad the previous cartoon series never made it far enough to introduce SheRa.

Maybe... Adora 1.6 meters (5'3") and She-Ra 2.13 meters (7'0"). Why not? Nod

I have to agree with a few of the other comments here.  This is totally awesome, but the size difference between She-Ra and Adora is a bit too extreme.  If Adora is smaller than Adam, She-Ra would be smaller than He-Man, but I'm getting the impression that you were going for the Heroes being the same size.  At 16 years old, Adora might have a inch or so to go, but she would be pretty much done growing, even if Adam wasn't.  I think in 200X Adam comes up to about He-Man's chin, so Adora should be at least at She-Ra's shoulder.  All that being said, I think having them too far apart is better than having them too close in size, then you hit that Classic-verse "no way people wouldn't notice that" problem.

As far as the sword goes, I love you're little comic of Adora trying to lift it.  However, in 200X Adam has the same problem and the power sword actually resizes to fit him when it's dormant.  I imagine the same thing would happen for Adora, but that first time?  She'd totally be like Simon's Cat with the lawn gnome.

Now the big part ;D  I challenge you, and all other She-Ra rebooters, to come up with a design for She-Ra that does not involve a headdress that would act as a shinny pair of arrows making a target out of her face.  That thing - which you did not design, I am aware - shouts AIM HERE and points at the last place you would want someone to shoot.  Alternately, if it's curved to the sides as you have drawn it, the wings become a bull's-eye right down the side of her head.  I believe this is a tactical flaw right up there with having Adora and She-Ra be the same person in different clothes.  Also, I think it's goofy looking.

Now that I've nitpicked...

I really like you're design of Adora, she's cute and looks like she feels a bit out of her depth concerning She-Ra, which is exactly how I think they wrote Adam in 200X.  Also, yay for not with the hoochie clothes.  Princess or soldier, nobody should be able to see that far up her crotch - or Teela's, which I saw you also steered away from - especially not on a kids show/toy.

Overall, two thumbs up and a yay!

Loewenherz Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014
Hmm the idea is interesting, but with that difference in height either Adora should be about 9-ish and have the shape of a young boy or She-Ra is a giant towering even over He-Man and Man-at-Arms... going after Adora's look that seems to be about Adams 14-16-ish age she should reach about chin height for adult/grown-up She-Ra. That "late" in puberty girls don't grow several full heads anymore, their most important growth spurts are roughly around 10/11 and 14... compared to 13-ish and 16/17 with boys... When switching from elementary to secondary school suddenly a lot of girls had several finger widths in height on me (formerly the largest boy in class), which was really irritating when you were used to be just the greatest ;)

Mind me, that would still have her being kind of a third of She-Ra's volume as the difference in shoulder width and muscle mass still would be impressive and similarly deceiving as with their male counterparts... and doesn't change anything about your excellent character analysis / thoughts.

What about high heels? I think Teelas "Uniform" featured kind of "combat stilettos" giving her at least 2 inches on Adam compared to flat-footed so that might "excuse" another bit She-Ra is higher than her alter Ego...
HerpingTheDerp Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014
Derp. Well, even if they are twins I kind of figure that Adora would be far smaller than her twin brother, if not she would just be another Teela. The heights look pretty accurate if you ask me, it's around the same size difference that there is between Adam and He-man in the 200X series.

Your She-Ra looks so powerful, and yet so feminine. :)
That's the actual height difference, is it? _
mackon Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013
It does add a interesting dimension

In my opinion the best "run" on She-Ra I have ever seen. Absolutely superb.

I love how you made She-Ra pretty much an Amazon, compared to Adora. I really would love to see you as head of visual design for a MOTU reboot.

Raises the question, how tall is She-Ra opposed to Adora?

looks a bit like the difference between jennifer walters and she-hulk with a hint of thor (haircolor and helmet)

So what you're saying is that in your opinion Adora basically is a human girl version of Cringer. Not in the way of her being afraid of everything but afraid of her other self. Cringer at some degree feels ashamed of his other self, because it shows a side he rather keeps hidden.

I like how you distinguished Adora and She-Ra.
Doga-87 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
Yeah. There's no way any one's going to mistake those two as the same person just cause you never see them together.

I'm not a fan of He-Man, but I saw a review about the episode who introduced She-Ra, and I actually find her origin and character interesting in some way.

Pure awesomeness. I really like the between character changes, does indeed make the secret identity thing much more plausible.

Wonder what Orko looks like in your style, now. And some of the other characters like Man at Arms and Kowl :XD:

Sort of what DC did with a character called Amethyst. The character was a 11 year old girl who transformed into a young adult when she entered the Gem world of her birth.

That's pretty awesome! You definitely kept enough about the characters that I can instantly recognize them. ...although...She-Ra is HUGE compared to Adora. Wow. ^_^;

Actually I would love to see your version of She-Ra done in the comics. Seems like a lot of fun.
Although I am digging the current He-Man version DC is doing.

That's some sweet artwork with plenty of character in both Adora and She-Ra. Love how you used the He-Man reboot for inspiration. Also love how the sword looks massive on Adora's back compared to when She-Ra holds it.

i love how you did Adora's uniform! i wish the acuall clothing for women on he man and she ra where as modest
Chwen-Hoou Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012
I will admit, one of the many top qualities of the 200x He-Man show and toyline (aside from being handled by the Four Horsemen) was making Prince Adam a smaller teenager to better sell the secret identity premise.

Fantastic job on the Adora and She-Ra comparison.

You are so good at characterizing, this is just really cool. I would love to see this on a tee shirt.
