Following Filmation.

As you can see in this illustration from the Ladybird book "He-Man and the Lost Dragon" artist Robin Davies had altered his style dramatically to match the character designs as seen in the Filmation cartoon. This trend of following the Filmation character designs would carry over heavily into the Princess of Power Ladybird books...

Excellent work! This illustration has the makings of a Season 1 He-Man episode. :)

Looks like Prince Adam is trying to get permission from his father to undertake another important mission (Ex: "City Beneath The Sea")! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

I love the Ladybird books. I especially like the original four which are very much pre-Filmation (or second wave DC Comics style) mixed with several other versions. The artwork was some of the best ever seen during the original line's run IMO.
