Coloring book #13 - Ram Man arrives!

During the eighties there were many Masters of the Universe coloring books, all of which featured a variety of artwork, with varying degrees of quality. Some artists put in a great level of detail, other artists simply copied model sheets, and some artists were just plain questionable. There were a batch of illustrations by one particular unnamed artist that I have a great affection for, mainly because the style is close to the cartoon, but bold enough to be identifiable as the artist's own! These images also showcased some pretty impressive scenes that I personally wish could have been seen in the Filmation series. In this illustration it would appear that Ram Man is charging headfirst into Skeletor's throne, upending the villain at the same time! I love the energy and impact of this illustration, with Skeletor thrown into the air by the force of the impact. I can just imagine that Skeletor was sitting in his throne minding his own business when Ram Man suddenly stormed in...

Yeah, poor Skeletor! It looks like the villain is doing some kind of crazy dive with each of his limbs going in different directions, and the look on his face is hilarious too. :)

I think Skeletor looks like an action figure being thrown around.
