MotU Classics Merman by natebaertsch MotU Classics Merman by natebaertsch
I love the new Masters of the Universe Classics figure line, sculpted by the Four Horsemen, and available exclusively on [link].
Merman is one of my favorites, and as such I did this piece as an update on his vintage figure's card art. Let me know what you think! Enjoy!

As a kid, I wondered why Mer-Man's sword looked like....a corn cob!

Mer-Man: He-Man- there's no escape! give up while you can! OR else I'll....
He-Man: Serve me CORN?

Amazing! Mattel should be hiring you to make package art for the classics line! This is perfect!

One of my favourite pieces from you. This pic truly has the magic of the 80's card art. I love Castle Grayskull in the background just for its sheer epicness! Having it somewhere in the pic(s) is a staple design choice of almost all MOTU 80s art! Solid work!

This is very impressive. The ocean is handled masterfully, very painterly. The hint of Skeletor's castle at the top is a great touch. Merman himself looks great!

That'd be Castle Grayskull, rather than Skeletor's Snake Mountain. But very cool none the less.
