Entering Grayskull...

"He-Man and the Lost Dragon" was one of the Ladybird books where the artwork of Robin Davies had shifted over to a more Filmation-inspired look. Even though the castle still retains the look that the Ladybird books had established, this illustration highlights cartoon-inspiration with an angle of Castle Grayskull often shown in the animated series...

Very true, James! That was my first impression, too. :) Check out the rope coming from Battlecat's saddle, as well!

Fantastic color and artwork, once again, and I like how the interior of the castle (from looking through the doorway) also looks to be inspired by the design from the cartoon series. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
