I could crush Eternia...

Here is another beautifully illustrated panel from the Masters of the Universe minicomic "King of the Snake Men". Normally, I would naturally sing the praises of Bruce Timm's artwork, which of course looks amazing as always in this panel. However, on this occasion I want to highlight just how stunning the coloring of this piece is. Given how big the minicomics were, the coloring was often fairly simple and straightforward; that is clearly not the case with this panel! We see the figure of Skeletor bathed in an iridescent yellow and green glow; and combined with the blue and purple of Skeletor, this makes for an impressive panel!

Agreed, and the green and yellow tones remind me of the color scheme used throughout the story featuring the Slime Pit! It's also effective that we can only see glowing eyes used for the villain, plus an orange-colored Havoc Staff makes for a nice change in the appearance of the weapon. :)
