The Final Universal Battle! (マスターズ/超空の覇者)



This is my contribution for Gallery 1988's "Under the Influence: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe show. I'm very excited and honored to be part of such an epic show, premiering Friday, January 8th in LA.

He-man and the masters are a big part of my childhood and have influenced me to this very day. From the original Filmation series, the toys, the 1987 live action film, to the 2002 animated series . A big thanks to Lou Scheimer and Mattel for creating this universe in the first place!

In my illustration I decided to finally conclude the epic struggle between He-man & Skeletor. Here's hoping that Bravestarr will get some spotlight in the near future as well. Hope you like and may the power of Castle Grayskull be with you!
