by the power of grayskull and snake mountain by nebezial by the power of grayskull and snake mountain by nebezial
a very quick sketch based on a fun thought that struck me... what if a bogger baddie went to invade eternia, something like horde prime or whatever.... i kinda figure he man and skeletor would join forces... ah childhood how fondly do i remember thee

As I recall, that did sort-of happen in the episode Evilseed, where Skeletor joined with He-Man in a single attack to break Evilseed's power. There was great reluctance on Skeletor's part, and it really stuck in his throat (wait, does he actually have a throat?), but he knew it was the only way to avoid being overrun by Evilseed's attacking creepers and brought to his knees. Evil-Lyn had already been overcome and dragged off (in a completely non-Rule 34 way, I'm sure) in an earlier scene, so he couldn't really look to anyone else. And I think this may have been the only MotU episode I ever watched right through! What are the odds?! >:= )>

They should join forces.  They are family.

only complaints here is that you should have put a bit more detail on their weapons and their limbs
great piece non-the-less

"Between the time folowing the death of King Grayskull, and the fall of the Horde Empire, there was an age undreamed of. And onto this, He-Man, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Eternos upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!"

Sorry just couldn't resist:D (Big Grin) ! Thanks for bringing back the Barbarian spirit of MOTU!

Epic stuff! If Hordak or King Hiss ever went ballistic and got super powerful, or if Horde Prime ever decided he wasn't playing around anymore and it was time to invade both Adora's world and He-Man's I can totally see this kind of alliance coming into being. That is a perfectly creepy Skeletor too, very classically lich-like! And your He-Man is as Conan-like as ever, which is why I like it. Great work! :D

I didn't think it possible to make He-Man appear badass to someone past the age of three, but there you go:) You're not only an artist, you sir are a miracle worker. Even made Skeletor's pink lightning seem cool. These are the characters we should have seen but never got to, and I feel cheated by life because of that... lol

He-Man does not look amused. xD But this is pretty awesome.

Now this is kickass. I love how skinny and dark-looking Skeletor is. Also, nice touch including Skeletor's Power Sword.

Very cool redesign.
mackon Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013
Gotta say I like this He-Man a lot better than the one in the face off with Skeletor holding a blade to Teela's throat. His face looked way to . . . something(shrug)  in that one.

I like your version of he-man where he does not resembles Willy Wonka (Johnny depp's) on Steroids. But don't get me wrong ! Masters of the universe was my favorite show when i was a kid. can't recall the amount of time if have yelled " by the power of ..."

Simply epic! I'm really impressed by your skills! They're both credible, classic and so modern at the same time. I love the swords. The concept behind is simply and so charming at the same time. Bravo!

Im a HUGE Masters of the Universe fan. And you are by far the greatest MOTU artist I have ever seen! Every pic , leaves me wanting more lol. I cant wait for you to revisit this Universe with your art Again. I dying to see your take on battle armor Heman and Skeletor , or the other master like Ram man , mekaneck , and Stratos. Your armor designs are perfect for this universe. And your bike concept for your pic "messing around with aphrodyte" makes me wonder what your take on their vehicles would look like. Needless to say I a Huge fan, Keep up the awesome work.
