The most embarrassing and terribly drawn image in all my boards was this one image of RamMan.
I hope I did him justice in 3D. Also BattleRam has the word 'Ram' in it.

This is meant to look like CastASpella.
In my storyboards, there is no Etheria, all the characters I hold true to are on one planet.
CastASpella is the teacher at the BrightMoon School of Magic, where those born with natural magic are sent to learn how to understand and control their magic, for specific purposes like festival shows, but ultimately to supress and not use their magic.
Adora is one of these students, and she rejects this control, feeling exempt by her royal privilege.
..(masculine regal authority is She-Ra's true undoing)
This is Bucket-Head He-Man with Lyn Minmie.
..your argument is invalid
Some more on Hordak.
Attachment 85411Attachment 85412Attachment 85413Attachment 85414Attachment 85415
In order to invade the planet Eternia, Hordak sends Hord Flyers carrying Hord Tanks and bots.
The Flyers deliver bots and Tanks, and pick up bubbled captives, the bots detect magic users.
The prisoners are taken to Hord Prime and Hordak drains them of magic, with complicated machines that in turn increase his life.
This is my best dragon. A purple dragon.

In my storyboards Granamyr is vital to the story arch.
As I see it... dragons live on the dark side of Eternia, given the planet has a 90deg pole-to-equa-peak rotation to its sun, giving it a bright side and a dark side, and a bowling-ball-like spin in orbit.
..simply having dragons live there does not make it 'dark' enough for me.
Also I see dragons having a belly full of gas, for lift as they fly.
So the dragons sleep in cavernous holes in the ground, so as not to float away as they snooze.
..and they don't like being woken up.
(the dream of dragons is far better than real life)
You plainly put a great deal of both time and thought into what you do - and that surely deserves to be recognized.
I confess that I know little about film direction; from recent cinema trends it appears that the level of talent varies vastly; some are brilliant - and others just as clearly wholly incompetent. But, as I say, I'm hardly fitted to know what makes a director; you see, I'm a writer!
The biggest problem with holywood, is that it is a mirror of the rest of the world.
Qualitatively, a lot of things on our planet need fixing.
Good classic directors are disappearing in Hollywood, just as fast as pollinating honey-bees.
..(which will lead to gross losses in fruits & veggies & nuts & flowers)
The billion-dollar profitability of Hollywood is as politically unstable as any other human structure and as shifting and shaky as the planets whole bio-sphere ...yada, yada, end of the world, yada, yada..

The King and Queen, (best played by Schwarzenegger), rule over Eternia.
Now that is to say the bright-lands of the planet Eternia, as its one side faces the eternian sun.
The government of Eternia is 'ideal-ic', not fascist or empirical, but based on regional council.
The land regions are so well organized over time that there is built and run a city of Eternia.
I for one would love to see an earth system like that.
(but unlikely even in a thousand years)
The City of Eternia.
Although I'm sure there are other less significant buildings within the circular outer wall, 4 stand out.
The palace of the royal family.
The laboratory of the Man-At-Arms.
The BrightMoon school of Magic.
The privileged school of higher-learning.
In that last image I forgot to include the cyber-robotics hospital.
(I also don't really know what it looks like on the outside.)
Some aquatic life on Eternia, as I see it.
SpiderFish. Small but deadly.
Cycloptapus. (an ambitious name ,, and ,, it will eat you)
Sea Pearls or Moon Pearls. Illegal on land, but the Mermen do not revere eternian law.
The cities of Atlantica are only somewhat welcoming to guests.
So I did Teela, I put it off a while because it means I should also make Bow.
Teela is a character I struggle to understand, because as I see her she likes Adam and He-Man, and I think the two are very different, so as a story goes one might think she is only interested in Adam as a friend(making him want to be more of a man, along with his interest in making his father proud, and turning to GreySkull for help)
Hate to give anything away.. if you haven't read my storyboards yet... but.
The final shot of my second Masters movie 'Peace and Havoc' is a Pink-Fluffy-Blunny.
After Orko turns Hordak into a Blunny, ("..as 'he' is not very funny.."), He-Man then tosses the Hord ship onto an approaching moon.
So if he survived then somewhere on one of Eternia's two moons there is a Pink-Fluffy-Blunny, bouncing, squawking and just looking around.
A pathetic and barely self aware creature.
The ecco-system on Eternia is delicate and intricate.
Based on Flutterina and BuzzOff, the tiniest creature people are just as important as the largest.
Rock-Flowers are unique to Eternia, growing out of the rock instead of soil these flowers are likely the source of all natural blood magic, but through the syrup of the bee-girls and through all the animals and beasts that eat from the food chain over time.
The Adam transformation is very simple and familiar in my work.
He goes to Duncan for advise, to impress his father and deal with a certain local area problem by the name of Skeletor, who's alliances with the beastmen and snakemen is causing a minor threat to the Eternian kingdom, although King Randor disagrees that there is any unusual threat.
Duncan suggests Adam see the Sorceress at GreySkull, as Adam has never been there before, and the birdlady keeper at the secret castle tells Adam of crafted magic crystal rock, of which has been made a sword, that can make you more of your natural strength, (a man if you are a boy, a bird if you are a birdlady), and he snatches up the chance to be he who is man and by giving his blood to the rock, he grows into He-Man.
Adora's transformation is however different, unfamiliar to those who go by filmation/comics.
Hopefully sensible though.
You work has an almost Star Wars/Lego Harry Potter sort of look to it. Would work well as a kid's show. :hmgrin:
You know kids are the hardest to fool.
..so I did not totally, initially, artistically, or fundamentally mix Sailor Moon with Princess of Power,, but there are some similarities to be seen.
In my work, Adora is born with natural blood magic, which is a lawful registry on Eternia, and requires your child go to magic school to learn how to control or not use your magic.
Adora feels exempt from this by royal privilege although she is only a princess by birth and in a masculine order she will never be 'a king'. She is however invited to council meetings and learns that Skeletor is misusing magic and is also being left alone so as not to upset the regional balance of peace as it is. So she goes to Skeletor and he teaches her that sea/moon pearls act as a sponge to the magic in the stars and planetoids, and it can increase her natural magic.
She-Ra in spite of her brother, says 'I AM THE POWER', and sets out to prove her right to rule as Queen.
I think it makes a lot of sense.
In my storyboards, the Pigmen are very significant to the brightlands of Eternia, although they are often unnoticed for their work, (like me). The castle GraySkull was built by them long ago and left in the hands of the birdmen to disperse the magic rock dug from the abyssal mine surrounding the castle. In my first movie the Pigmen will become offensively/defensive of the castle when its magic is freely/simply given to the son of Randor.
In this image I made a pigman soldier with a gas-gun, although it is illegal to make fatal weapons like this on Eternia.
Their leader is King Chomp, who in my first movie tries to take control of GraySkull and burn an allotments contract in the presence of King Randor, the high and privileged king.
Most of the time Eternia remains in a balance of peace, but that peace is easily disturbed.
..much like disturbing dragons from their sleep.
This is a Roton. Built by SnakeMen, out of stolen tech from Eternia City.
That Roton is great... well done!
Thank you muchly.
Its good to know someone cares about what I do.
Sadly, the more I render images, the more I worry about my inability to animate them.
