Happy Birthday He-Man #3 - Skeletor in detail...

Here is a wonderfully detailed drawing of everyone's favorite Lord of Destruction from the Ladybird book "Castle Grayskull Under Attack!" Artist Robin Davies provides another example of why the Ladybird books were such a privilege to own! I like the fact that we see Skeletor's head and Havoc Staff, but not the rest of his upper body, making this a very striking image. Of course I have many more examples of Robin Davies' work which I will of course be showcasing on this Blog.

The detail within Skeletor's Havoc Staff is magnificent and the red pupils in Skeletor's eyes really stand out!

Skeletor's skull looks like it was made out of solid gold, too, just by looking at the different shades of color!

A true work of art. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

While I don't know anything about Robin Davies or seen his other comic-art, I personally think he liked drawing Skeletor. The details are excellent here.:)
