    The Archer's Affable Sidekick by Kevenn T. Smith

    I have one last Rebel to post for 2018. It's been a busy year for me - doing the My Husband is Not a Rainbow book, singing with a band called Bullseye Womprats, working with a local high school's theater department, and working on illustrations for a 6-book series. I hope to do more Rebels to come next year, especially since there's a great new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power show on Netflix now.

    This Rebel illustration features Josh. It's time to go in Deep-Fan Mode.  Josh was created to be a protege of Bow and only appeared in two mini comics that came with the vintage figures, "Across the Crystal Light Barrier," where he was named and seen having a picnic with Adora, Glimmer & Bow, and "Don't Rain On My Parade," where a character wearing "Josh colors" appeared playing a flute. If he was Bow's protege, and Bow played a musical instrument, the harp, then it's seems likely that Josh would have played an instrument too - the flute hanging from his side by ribbons. So yes, I maintain that *was* Josh in that panel of that comic.

    I gave him a headband as an homage to the vintage Bow action figure, and I used the hat band from his appearance in "Don't Rain On My Parade" for it.

    The mini crossbow recalls Bow's archery, and the clover bolts also hearken to Bow's heart tipped arrows. I gave him blue clovers because picnics can happen in fields of clover, and the trees in Whispering Woods are predominantly blue, so I thought that there could be a blue clover in the Woods. I also imagined that perhaps he had been in a Horde Youth Group, and would have had training with a crossbow, as many of the Horde characters have crossbows. I gave him shoulder epaulets like Adora's, but in blue, to tie that in.

    His bracelets are the same as the vintage Bow action figure's, to further visually tie them together. The boot design, I took off the Dekker action figure from the Masters of th eUniverse Classics line, because I liked the element of stitching it had that was like the stitching that Josh's tunic had at the chest. Also, the boots were a turned-down style, and male characters on Etheria favored a turned-down style of boot - like Seahawk and Snout Spout. I also thought the gems on the boots were a nice echo of the circles on Bow's boots at the top and the ornamental flare many of the female characters have at the top of their boots.

    And then, there's the bowl of potato salad - started as a joke by someone on He-Man.org, that Josh brought potato salad to the picnic in "Across the Crystal Light Barrier." The potato salad grew to have a life of its own, and is now synonymous with Josh. I used colors from his design and tried to give it an Etherian feel.

    This illustration of Josh is available as cards, prints, postcards, t-shirts, hoodies, skirts, dresses, scarves, bags, pillows, phone cases, clocks, duvet covers, and more at my Redbubble store! Click the picture to go there.

    Unicorns and a Bounty Hunter

    Here are a couple more illustrations for the Great Rebellion series that I've been meaning to post. The first up is "Baby Wind." She-Ra's steed, Swift Wind, ended up revealing a secret life - a wife named Starr Wind with a baby on the way in the very last episode of the series. If the baby was born on Unicorn Island, he would be a unicorn like his parents. If not, he'd only be a regular horse. Due to Hordak's antcis, the baby was born off-island. Swift Wind and Starr Wind professed how much they loved their child, even though he wasn't a unicorn. She-Ra called upon the powers of Grayskull with her sword and changed the foal into a unicorn.

    The baby was never named, but I like to think that if he was named, he'd be called Sun Wind - due to his golden color (and a sun is actually a star, so it's close to his mother's name), and it's also a pun (which the Masters of the Universe/Princess of Power characters liked to do with names), because he's Swift Wind's son.

    This illustration is available at my Redbubble store as prints, posters, cards, postcards, stickers, t-shirts, hoodies, dresses, kids' & babies' clothes, phone cases & skins, laptop cases & sleeves & skins, pillows, skirts, leggings, mugs, tote bags, drawstring bags, studio pouches, scarves, duvet covers, journals, clocks, acryllic blocks, and more!

    The next featured Rebel, is the bounty hunter, Huntara, who was designed to basically be Grace Jones (whim I am a huge fan of). Huntara was only in one episode, but she was slated to return in another episode, "The Silaxian Wars." The episode was storyboarded, but it was deemed too violent to be completed. The episode had Huntara returning to Etheria to enlist She-Ra's help to defend her planet, after Horde Prime targeted it for revenge for when Huntara refused to capture She-Ra in Huntara's first appearance. She-Ra and Huntara would have brought down a lot of damage on Horde Prime's forces, and it would have been an epic episode to end the series on.

    This illustration is also available at my Redbubble store as prints, posters, cards, postcards, stickers, t-shirts, hoodies, dresses, kids' & babies' clothes, phone cases & skins, laptop cases & sleeves & skins, pillows, skirts, leggings, mugs, tote bags, drawstring bags, studio pouches, scarves, duvet covers, journals, clocks, acryllic blocks, and more!

    The Last Round of Rebels for 2015

    The final illustrations of 2015 for my Great Rebellion series are here! We start off with my favorite, Netossa! The first four illustrations are available on t-shirts, hoodies, leggings, pencil skirts, scarves, kids'/baby's clothes, stickers, prints, posters, postcards, greeting cards, pillows, totes, drawstring bags, studio pouches, mugs, duvets, iPad/iPhone/Samsung Galaxy/laptop cases and skins, spiral notebooks, and hardcover journals at my RedBubble Store.

    Netossa: "The Captivating Cerulean Huntress" by Kevenn T. Smith. Click on the above image to buy products with this illustration. Netossa is a combination of her vintage figure design and cross sell art, her Filmation design, her vintage Style Guide design, and her Masters of the Universe Classics figure.

    Sea Hawk: "The Rogue Rebel Pirate" by Kevenn T. Smith. Click on the above image to buy products with this illustration. Sea Hawk is largely based on his original Filmation design, but also has elements from later episodes, like the ring from his father, The Falcon, from the 2-part episode, "Treasure of the First Ones," and the half of the locket he gives to Adora in "The Locket." I also wanted to give him a touch of "Captain Jack Sparrow" around the eyse, to help differentiate him further from Bow, since they're both redheads who were voiced by the same actor in the She-Ra cartoon.

    "Rebel Hearts 1" by Kevenn T. Smith. Sisters? Besties? Lovers? Whichever you prefer, there's no denying that Netossa and Spinerella adored each other in the episode, "When Whispering Woods Last Bloomed." Now you can have them together in one piece.

    Great Rebellion T-Shirts by Kevenn T. Smith

    I have been working on this series since the beginning of 2012. And while I wanted to debut it all as a massive print with a large amount of characters, perhaps this is the best way to get the ball rolling. The She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoon was a huge influence on me as a child in my development as an artist, a person with a moral center, my strong belief in feminine empowerment, and my sense of aesthetics. Alongside the cartoon was an action figure line that I wasn't allowed to own and had to surreptitiously play with my sister's collection, which included amazing design details that had to be simplified and excised for the purposes of animation.

    With this series, I'm trying to come up with my "ultimate" versions of these characters that takes my favorite design elements from all of the various depictions of these characters, (Filmation cartoon, vintage action figures, vintage style guide, vintage production art and advertisement art, vintage coloring books, the current Masters of the Universe Classics figures, and original design elements) and bring them all into one cohesive series. The first entry is the core members of the Great Rebellion on a t-shirt (in various sizes, styles, colors and available in kids' clothes and on stickers!) or totebags, throw pillows, iPhone & iPad cases: She-Ra, Bow, Princess Glimmer, Madame Razz & Broom, Kowl, Loo-Kee, and Light Hope. Click on the pictures to be taken to my RedBubble store where you can purchase a t-shirt (or other products offered) of "Rebel Core."
