He-Man versus Man-At-Arms.

This action-packed illustration from the 1985 UK Masters of the Universe annual is one of my favorites from this book. I have championed before the beautiful use of watercolors in this book, and here is another example. The extreme poses of both He-Man and Man-At-Arms are illustrated wonderfully, and the sense of fury in He-Man's attack can be felt! I like the attention to detail throughout this piece; from the leather straps that bind the boots of the characters, to the way in which He-Man's harness rests on the ground.

Agreed. :) He-Man looks like "Lion-O," once again, and poor Man-At-Arms' knee looks like it's about to slip!
