Clawful runs!

The season one He-Man episode "Dree Elle's Return" has quite a few moments of stupendous animation. This is largely in part thanks to artist Byron Vaughans whose storyboards for this episode are amazingly expressive and for want of a better word "cartoony". In this one panel featuring Clawful you can see that Byron was clearly more suited to illustrating traditional cartoons, rather than the action-based cartoons of the eighties! I hope to feature more of Byron's boards, because they are simply beautiful!

Agreed and the illustration is like "Warner Brothers" style. :) To me, Clawful always looked a bit different in this episode than he did in all of his later appearances, plus this episode seemed to be one of the most "cartoony" episodes in Season One! Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)
