Orko saving the day!

In the Masters of the Universe Ladybird book "He-Man meets the Beast" Orko races through some dark caverns with the Sword of Power. In this illustration by Robin Davies we can see how his use of colors can really change the mood of a scene. Yes, Orko being attacked by a large creature sets the mood quite well, but the use of purples, blues and greens creates a great sense of atmosphere within the cavern. Actually this Ladybird book above all others features some of the best mood coloring...

Reminds me of the Gedge from the "Battlecat" episode ... Wicked skull earring the creature sports! I've always liked the blue color schemes within the episodes that featured icy locations such as "The Region of Ice" and "The Ice Age Cometh" ... This illustration reminds me of those settings. :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!
