MOTU - Skeletor by RubusTheBarbarian MOTU - Skeletor by RubusTheBarbarian
These are some concept art designs I made, reinventing the villains from my all time favorite Masters of the Universe characters...

I hope you like them..:)

If anyone would like to have a shot at coloring one of these, be my guest! ;)

I also love how you incorporated some of the Horde symbols in this design. It shows he was once Hordak's pupil, but has the power to create his own empire.

don't think i didn't notice you have some horde symbols scattered all on his outfit. nice homage to his days as an apprentice...

I really hate to point this out from an otherwise flawless drawing, but the lips just ruin the face.

Otherwise, it is a great depiction of the character.

I really enjoy your pencil work, man. You've got really slick mark making. And these MOTU designs are pimp. They retain fidelity to the source material while realizing what this stuff looked like in my imagination as a kid.

simply amazing...it really is. I am always hoping for an artist to come along and put up a good Skeletor remake and this is it.
I have some of my own Skels pieces up, but mine are far more on the traditional side. Well done.

Well the movie design was really nice.. My only objection was that they had to get rid of the parts of the suit that made him look like Darth Vader with a skull face..

Other than that he was quite scary!! :)

Glad you like it mate! :)

I always believe he should have been less goofy in the original series.. Thank the Gods somebody heard me and made the 2002 version much more kickass than it used to be! :)
