Juggling Orko.

Steve Hickner was one of the original group of storyboard artists that worked on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Whilst his drawings were often simplistic, the expressions and physical comedy he would put into his boards were quite striking! In these few panels from "Dawn of Dragoon" we can see how he detailed Orko's movements as the Trollan starts to juggling whilst explaining where Trolla is located...

The juggling motions illustrated here seem more rapid of a movement than the way the animation turned out, like the juggling seen in Act Two of the She-Ra episode, "Just The Way You Are." Great indication of movement, all the same. :) ~Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

The artists would portray Orko juggling at times, as well as making life miserable for Man At Arms. It provided some comic relief in the show.

I love the expression the artist manages to give Orko's eyes in these storyboard panels - sometimes a simple drawing can still be a very expressive one! :)
