Skeletor by feuerkorn Skeletor by feuerkorn
The master of evil himself. In my version he is more of an immortal shaman warrior. The golden skull mask prevents his decay. He is an expert swordsman and a powerful magic user with centuries of training.
I wanted the main villain to look more human than the usual demon look. Skeletor should be capable to scare the **** out of the teen with the power-sword.

Hope you'll like it! ;)

I love the upper body and the bare feet. The pants I just can't seem to enjoy. The swords are a bit over top. I prefer the dual connecting blades from the remade series. You can't improve much on the skull staff. 
How much gold would be on the skull?

Thank you for the cool comment!

Skeletor needed an appearance, that resembled the typical look of a priest and a warrior at the same time. In my version he is a immortal shaman warrior and the sorcerer supreme of Eternia. The warrior skirt was therefore perfect to show that balance visually.

About the weapons. In normal size, those swords appeared way to insignificant in comparison to all other weapons, especially with the sword of power. The decision about size of He-mans sword was the bigger problem for me.

And yes, it's a complete golden mask, with unobtrusive runes to make it look magical. And it is gold because it is a magic substance and also has the iconic yellowish colour of his face.

My goal is not to change your opinion, but rather to clarify the reasons behind the design choices i had made. ... and because i am a nerd ;)

Wow, awesome work! Seriously, that's badass, and I don't toss that one around lightly. I like the retake/reimagining. Very cool. ;^]
