Picking up Trap Jaw...

Here I present another couple of amusingly illustrated storyboard panels by Rich Chidlaw from the season one He-Man episode "The Region of Ice". I like the expression of Trap Jaw in the first panel, as well as the additional panel showing how the camera shout rotate to show the villain being hoisted up in the air by He-Man. One has to laugh at how serious and heroic-looking He-Man is drawn in the second panel whilst Trap Jaw is illustrated over his head wide-eyed and terrified. Once again the use of a simple marker pen creates a wonderful use of shadows; even though Filmation would rarely create shadows!

Ha ha! It's great how Trap Jaw is illustrated in an extremely comical way in all of these illustrations of him. :) I like the way he asks, "What are you doing," in an over-the-top, annoyed kind of tone! I hope that maybe one day you can feature the mistake in color for Trap Jaw's jaw in the close-up shot of him, as he is thrown towards Skeletor and Beast Man for the actual animation, James! :)
