Unleashing the Sun Scarab!

Here is an interesting panel from the "Temple of The Sun" storyboards by Michael Swanigan. In this illustration we see Nepthu unleashing the power of the Sun Scarab. Now look at yesterday's post. Michael based Nepthu's pose and the camera pan to the Sun Scarab on Bob Kline's previous illustration of Skeletor unleashing the power of the Diamond Ray of Disappearance. During his time at Filmation, one of Michael's biggest influences was Bob Kline, so the opportunity to pay homage to his work was too good to pass up!

Yes, and this animation is featured quite a few times in the episode too, so it always stuck in my mind since watching it from childhood! The layout artwork for this and the previous post is just as amazing as the final animations. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)
