Original Bow!

As I have mentioned before, while work was already underway on the She-Ra series, none of the character designs had actually been finalized. When it came to storyboarding the first She-Ra episode "Into Etheria" artist Don Manuel had no character designs to refer to, and subsequently had to design many of the characters himself. In this panning shot we can see Don Manuel's original design of Bow was quite different than the final version!

An early prototype of the "New Adventures" version of He-Man, perhaps? :)

Happy New Year to all, by the way! :)

Thanks for reading! God Bless...

Is this from Into Etheria? Bow could never be more masculine than Adam, that would be all wrong. haha! Thank goodness they soon ended up sharing a horse after that.
