Skytree ("The Dragon's Gift") concept illustration
Throughout this month The Power and The Honor Foundation in conjunction with The He-Man and She-Ra Blog will be showcasing never-before-seen Filmation production artwork.
Surprisingly Skytree, from the He-Man episode "The Dragon's Gift", went through a few designs, before the final character model was decided upon. Although the concept is still the same, you can see that this version of Skytree has a more human-like face. His appearance is clearly based on that of an old man, with two prominent tufts of leaves either side of his face representing two tufts of hair. From this piece you can also see that Skytree was going to be far bigger, as if you look closely enough you can just about make out a tiny illustration of He-Man.
