The expressions of Flipshot.

As I have mentioned before "The Ultimate Challenge" is one of the best-looking episodes of The New Adventures of He-Man. Much of the animation matches the dialogue perfectly; none so more than in this brief scene featuring Flipshot. You can see that in the first two images Flipshot is his typically overconfident cocky self, as he mocks Hydron for making a comment earlier in the episode. However, after Hydron commands him to patrol the dark side of the planet you can see that Flipshot's expression changes to one of both confusion and fear. The subtle touches to the character's eyes and the mouth expressions make this one of the standout pieces of animation in the episode. And there are many!

You certanly captured each expression well in these photos James. ;)

Yeah, I have to agree with Kevin, they look similar to afew of Peter Vankmen's expressions, more proof there of K.K. C&D Asia re-using some model designs I recon. ;)

Sorry I shouldhave said ArtMic, not K.K. C&D Asia, as this looks like an ArtMic episode. Honestly Jean, why didn't you credit those other studios.
