Montork traps Spydra.

Here is yet another wonderful Barry Caldwell illustration from the storyboards to the season one He-Man episode "The Return of Orko's Uncle". Once again we see a style of artwork that one would not associate with a Filmation cartoon! The first panel, in which Montork confronts Spydra, is a good example of how Caldwell inserts a great deal of physical expression in his panels. Again, I love the way in which he illustrates very simple, yet very expressive faces on his human characters. The final panel, though beautifully illustrated here, is one of those that simply did not translate well to the screen. At some point I will feature comparison shots between Caldwell's boards and the final episode.
