wow... it actually works. i know in the 2002 version that he was "undead" but i think this is practical. he could have had a long lasting grudge against King Randor for scarring him. but i guess taking his flesh was a sign of Keldor making a deal with the devil.

Actually in the 2000 series, his skull just kinda floats.... I guess he was undead all along.

Not what I would normally go with, but it is an excellent idea. It does beg the question what his real face looks like

Kinda works, especially if his distorted face looks anything like the "Skeletor" face in the MOTU movie with Dolph Lungren (Yes, I saw that, horrible though it was, and loved it because it was He-Man).

I think that the undead sorcerer with the floating skull it works better for Skeletor's depiction as a Dark Lord and it also points out Hordak's role (and a demonstration of his power) at Keldor's transformation through the use of dark arts. However the skull helmet is a good idea for Keldor's son look. But beyond that this is an awesome work!!

Well I was surprised to learn that Spikor is just a normal guy wearing a helmet according to his MOTUC bio. Why not Skele? But I think New Adventures Skele makes sense for it being a helmet.

If I'm not mistaking, the original idea for the Masters of the Universe cartoon was for Skeletor to have a mask. This is just epic, like all your other artwork! :meow:

Hordak: "Skeletor, my old apprentice... It's been a long time."
Skeletor: "That it has. I see your as pale as ever."
Hordak: "As are you now. I heard you had suffered from a rather nasty,potion spill. I didn't realise it was this grave."
Skeletor: (Deadpan)"Its a helmet."
Hordak: "Oh, now I am intrigued."

eventually in the 2000 reboot it's shown that... his skull is just floating there, so he has no neck, so I guess he really end up just poring his tea down his neck hole.

The 2005 reboot had some other odd details I noticed (recently watched it all on Netflix). Skeletor is pretty much undead, he's a textbook Lich, and when he was Keldor apparently Evil Lyn had a thing for him. Also interesting originally Keldor was King Randor's Brother, meaning that yep Skeletor was going to be Heman's Uncle!
