He-Man hangs on!

Here is an illustration by Robin Davies from "Dragon from the Lost Valley", a story that appeared in the one-off Masters of the Universe Ladybird annual. I have always loved the sheer level of detail put into the illustration of the stegosaurus. Not only does the line art look impressive, but it is colored in such a way that it emphasizes the creature's dense skin and muscular frame. This illustration was sadly not reproduced in the story "He-Man and the Lost Dragon"; another Masters of the Universe book published by Ladybird and illustrated by Robin Davies. What am I talking about? You will find out soon...

There is a scene from the "Search for the VHO" episode that reminds me of this scene, with He-Man holding on for dear life as he battles The Kraken! The bold, bright orange tones of the creature are amazing ... The colors really grab your attention. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

I have to say that it really looks like He-man is bull riding at the bar. Lol, that is the first impression i got when i looked at this piece.
