Adam flees the Beast #03

Here is the third of four strikingly beautiful illustrations by Robin Davies from the Masters of the Universe Ladybird book "He-Man meets the Beast". In the story Prince Adam enters a cavern and ends up being chased by a large monster. The chase is wonderfully documented with illustrations that often reach across two pages showing Prince Adam's fear amongst the iridescent colored glow of each tunnel. In this piece we see Prince Adam moving away from the creature. What I love about this piece is that we are now located in a purple cavern, but in the background we can see the two previous tunnels the characters have been in...

Great color variety, and I thought that this was just the artist's choice of color for each page for added drama, not different colors for every cavern. :) Prince Adam looks like he is just getting ready to make his transformation, given a few more seconds for him to be out of sight!

I am a huge fan of the artwork featured in the Ladybird series of MOTU books. The characters and the villains in particular appear more life like as with the beast "frothing at the mouth" at the sight of Prince Adam. www.voiceart.co.za
