Into the caverns...

The 1985 UK Masters of the Universe annual featured a lot of watercolor-based artwork. In this illustration we see just how effective the style can be when trying to create an atmosphere. Here He-Man and Teela are entering the caverns of Point Dread! The story is incredibly descriptive of Point Dread, giving it a great deal more depth than the playset...

He-Man looks like Lion-O from "Thundercats!" Based on the color scheme, it looks like He-Man and Teela are looking for gold. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Man thats some really great looking painted artwork! I love He-Man's determination in that picture! Also love the inclusion of Point Dread! I always wish that had been elaborated much more other than the add playset.

This watercolor artwork is something I really wish more artists would have done. Very vibrant representations of our beloved MOTU characters.
