Emiliano's Grayskull.

Going into the Masters of the Universe from MVCreations Emiliano Santalucia was already a huge fan of Filmation's backgrounds and their design of Castle Grayskull. When the animated series from Mike Young Productions began we were all left disappointed by the way in which Castle Grayskull was so blandly illustrated, with a complete lack of detail. However, when Emiliano had the opportunity to illustrate Castle Grayskull in the comic he brought across as many of the Filmation design elements as he could. You can easily see in this illustration from issue two (volume one) what parts of the castle are influenced by the Filmation series...

Yes, I am in awe when I see this too. :) In addition to the beautiful sunset colors in the sky, I loved the lighting effects of the Abyss, like the Power of Grayskull is down there waiting to burst forth!

I wonder if given the oppotunity to, would Emiliano be willing to design a full scale Castle Greyskull in Italy? :D

The picture itself though is very well detailed. :)

It also looks like it has some Vintage Toy influence too!
