    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 Aquatic Princess of Salineas" by Kevenn T. Smith

    This latest Rebel has been a long time coming. A fan favorite, Mermista is the last Rebel I had to finish that received a figure produced in the vintage Princess of Power line. Princess Mermista hails from the underwater kingdom of Salineas, ruled by her father, King Mercier, and is a Rebel who can often be found around the Crystal Falls. As usual, I combined elements of the Filmation design with the Vintage figure, relying more heavily on the Filmation design. I felt that the silver belt worn by the vintage figure (and also used on the Maters of the Universe Classics figure) ruined the sleek line of her design. I also don't like that the belt causes her fish half to begin abruptly at the waste. I liked that the Filmation design allowed the scale covered areas of her body to reach up into her torso. This makes for a more unique mermaid design, and for the Filmation version of her land form, would giver her a scaled body suit with little green fins behind the heels.

    Normally, I post these illustrations on a plain white background, but for Mermista, in order to get the water effect the best, it works best on this aqua background. My Mermista illustration is available on t-shirts, hoodies, kids'/babies' clothes, stickers, leggings (those items do not include the water splash effect), iPhone cases & skins, Samsung Galaxy cases & skins, laptop skins & sleeves, throw pillows, duvet covers, mugs, tote bags, studio pouches, and more at my RedBubble.com store.

    Sweet Bee: "The Stunning Honey From Space" by Kevenn T. Smith. Click on the above image to buy products with this illustration.

    Flutterina: "The Ethereal Empowered Lookout" by Kevenn T. Smith. Click on the above image to buy products with this illustration. This Flutterina illustration also is based mainly on the Filmation design, but likewise incorporates elements of the vintage Style Guide, and the vintage action figure. This piece took me a lot longer to work on than others. While I was working on it, I was going through losing a family member - our beloved dog, Lucy, and afterwards adding a new dog to our family, Carter. I was very aware of the butterfly being a powerful symbol of big life changes and personal growth. Flutterina's origin in the Filmation cartoon series, of a humble and shy slave girl named Small One being transformed into a beautiful empowered butterfly woman, followed that theme.
