Expressive Mara.

The New Adventures of He-Man episode "The Ultimate Challenge" was not only the fifth episode of the series, but also featured some of the best animation and direction! Here are a few images of Mara from a scene in which she and Caz attempt to rescue He-Man from Skeletor. The way in which she moves into each of these expressions is wonderfully fluid. If only the entire series had looked as beautiful as this scene...

Very pretty! Mara kind of has the "Frosta" look. :) I like how her eyes capture much of her expression.
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

One thing I do like about The New Adventures is that sometimes the animation is better than what was in Filmation. Like with this scene it shows expressions that you didn't see in Filmations series due to the reuse of stock animation.

It would have been nice if the series had more fluidity like this one. It was hard to stomach some of the animation in the NA Series. I think I got spoiled by Filmation :-)

I guess Jean Cholpin was given bonuses to the artists at K.K. C&D Asia that day, so they must have been like 'Oh we have got to make this episode look good'!

These expressions by mara though do look impressive, you got to hand it to the artistsfor doing that. :)
