She-Ra leaps!

Here is a great storyboard panel from the She-Ra episode "The Unicorn King" by artist Keith Tucker. In truth the actual artwork of She-Ra acrobatically flipping would have been xeroxed from a book full of stock animation sequences in storyboard form. Keith would have then pasted the image onto his storyboard and drawn around it with the relevant background and laser blasts. Notice that he also drew around She-Ra on some poses to emphasize her movement.

It always looks like the final laser blast is going to get She-Ra, before she jumps out of shot!

Plus, like many on the She-Ra "Best-of" DVD release once said, the animation keeps things appropriate by not showing The Princess of Power's skirt flying around while she is in action. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Now that you mentioned it, I would actually like to see a book full of Filmation He-Man stock sequences. The idea sounds something rare but still enjoyable to get a gander at.

Awesome sequence-art from Tucker. She-Ra's poses are beautiful here.
