We All Adora Kia-Ora



Me still on the He-Man bus + wanting to nail some girlie pics on this Blog + my baby sister's birthday = me drawing She-Ra. Dunno if this counts as my eighties cartoon offering; that might be part of next week's offering, where I revolutionise The Challenge Of The Gobots. Until then...

FOR THE HONOUR OF GREYSKULL!

Oooh I like - I loved He-man & She-Ra. I really love the way you've drawn her (ONLY thing I'd say, I know it's a sketch and I'm no drawer, but her hand seems a little large, especially her first finger? Forgive me if that's nitpicking btw) I do love this sketch though :)

Will Sliney said...

Ah yes!!, I am definately busting out the He-man Nostalgia next wednesday! Great sketch Nick. You forgot her hairbrush accessory

Wadeboski said...

How many people know that Kia Ora is actually a Maori greeting? I must be the token NZer follwing this blog.

That is one attractively drawn She-ra!!!

Yay, full size Nick Pics! This is great. Although by the time it gets to Thursday there'll be nothing left for me to draw except 'Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors' or something. Stupid Saw Boss...

Moondog said...

Soopoib. Quite fancied She-Ra back in the day.
Not as much as Jem though.

Will Sliney said...

I thought Kia Ora was a dogs name

GoBots! Steve dont forget thundercats and rock lords and my all time favorite the visionaries still have the toys! this a great sketch btw, and i found a bunch of my old he man toys last week....good stuff

Looks great Nick. Best sketch yet, i reckon. Maybe second to the Invisible Girl.

David said...

Forget cartoons of the 80s. Someone should draw the greatest hero of that decade: The Littlest Hobo. Great She-Ra. I remember the slightly weird brother sister thing with Adam.

Judy - what is this blog for, if not to pick nits? The hand might be a teensy bit big all right, but I'm getting better! Usually my characters have engorged digits of justice, so she's relatively dainty. I didn't really indicate the underside and bend of her ore finger, so I concende that it resembles the big-toe of a waterlogged corpse.

In other defensive sentences, I kinda wish I'd given her more of a pose, or added character to her face. But it's my first She-Ra drawing in about 20 years, and I just felt liking drawing the balls of her.

Wadeboski - I DID know that! But not until relatively recentle, and definitely not before the 21st Century. Thanks for th nice wordage!

Thompses - Yeah, big pics...not hard at all! I am a techno-oaf.

David - I think the main weird thing was the shocking lack of clothes and absence of any physical shame those two had. That sowed the seeds of suspicion really...

Will - These MOTU pics are pretty much all for you, at this stage.

Moonster - I might draw Jem next week. Scratch a Nikki-Pow itch too...

Dec - High praise indeed, sir! thanks! As I said, could be more dynamic, but I'd just pencilled apage. This was a wind-down before sun-up.

David - Sorry I left you out. Gobots!

Great sketch Nick! Makes me wanna dig out the ol' Castle Greyskull from the attic.

Andy said...

You'd better not be teasing about Go-Bots. Otherwise that videoclip G took at Transforce 2002 goes online!!!

Nick said...

Arf! I dunno, Andy...it's looking like Jem of "And The Holograms" fame right now, schedule permitting. Unleash the VT! Do your worst!

Gorgeous! But my question is did you lot in Ireland ever see an earlier Filmation cartoon from the late-1970's called THE YOUNG SENTINELS, later re-named THE SPACE SENTINELS after STAR WARS came out? Much better than that HE-MAN stuff, and the shape-shifting heroine, Astrea, was a lovely Nubian sistah, so what's not to like?
