    Rebels That Rock - And Dance!

    I've finished some more illustrations for my Great Rebellion Series, and offered a couple new group shots as well. First off, we have the Rock People, which also contain the two "Comet Warriors," which Stondar and Rokkon were also known in the vintage Masters of the Universe toyline. However, at the time that the toys came out, new episodes of the He-Man cartoon were no longer being produced, and so the characters ended up being featured on the She-Ra cartoon - along with Granita, a female Rock Person, who was planned to be produced in the vintage Masters of the Universe, only Mattel decided that boys couldn't handle *ANOTHER* "icky girl" in the line. I mean, those poor boys of the 80's did have their precious and frail masculinities threatened by the introduction of THREE other females in the line, Teela, Evil-Lyn, and Sorceress, so goodness knows what sort of villainy and ararchy would have resulted if a FOURTH female had been introduced, so Granita was cut.

    But she showed up on the She-Ra cartoon - TWICE! Stondar showed up twice, and Rokkon only showed up once. Also, another member of the Rock People showed up in an episode, a young female named Facet. As far as I'm aware, there was no other appearance of Facet in any other media. Stondar, Rokkon, and Granita all showed up in the Masters of the Universe daily newspaper strips, where they were all depicted in their simplified Filmation designs, but we wee told that Stondar is the father to both Rokkon and Granita.

    For these illustrations, I wanted to largely begin with the Filmation design as a base, but add in a lot of details that the two Comet Warriors had in their vintage action figure and Masters of the Universe Classics action figures had. And in that, to make them all cohesive, I added more details and elements to the designs of Granita and Facet to bring them closer to the two males. All illustrations in this post are available on a variety of products such as T-shirts, hoodies, dresses, kids/babies clothes, posters, prints, phone cases and skins, iPad cases and skins, mugs, tote bags, drawstring bags, pillows, studio pouches, scarves, duvet covers, skirts, journals, clocks, acryllic blocks, and more at my RedBubble store.

    Another character that I completed an illustration of is of one that I call "Bubblerina." This character was previously only seen in one illustration in a German catalgoue that featured the never-produced Bubble Carriage. The illustration depicted She-Ra riding inside the carriage along with this mysterious new character, and Spinerella riding on the back of the carriage. For years, fans speculated whether this was a new character or a mis-colored Mermista, but I was of the opinion that it was indeed, a different and distinct character, and that the bubble morif on her was similiar to the bubble motif of the carriage and Bubble Power She-Ra. I suspected that this character was a dancer (because of the ballerina tutu) and for some reason, the bubble motif was given to She-Ra to make the Bubble Power She-Ra variant in Wave 3, and the character was cut from the wave but her dancing elements were given to Spinerella, and the element of her being Spinerella's sister and the largely blue color motif were taken up my Netossa.

    This was all confirmed at 2016's Power-Con convention, when the Sander Brothers ended up revealing a lot of research that they did into Mattel's archives on the She-Ra: Princess of Power line, and said that this "Bubble Carriage Maiden" was a character initially named Joya, and that her bubble gimmick was given to Bubble Power She-Ra, because the gimmick for the Wave 3 She-Ra variant was not working. However, I do not think that if Joya had gone to production, that she would have been released with the name "Joya." It doesn't have the descriptive and pun-filled nature of the other She-Ra characters' names. We leared from that Power-Con that Perfuma's original name was Terra (like the earth). I feel that if Joya would have been released, she would have been released under a name that describes her abilities and who she is, thus "Bubblerina," which combines "bubble" and "ballerina" together to give us an idea of what she's about. In my illustration, I did want to give her a couple more details to make her fit better with the other female Rebels in this series. I gave her a belt that's reminiscent of the belt worn by Bow or most of the male figures in the Masters of the Universe line. I also wanted to make sure there was a gem in her costume's bodice like nearly all of the vintage Princess of Power figures had. So without further ado, I give you Bubblerina!

    I also created a group shot featuring Bubblerina and the wave 2 vintage She-Ra characters and a few other characters from the cartoon. The Wave 2 characters were very much representative of the elements, and I felt Bubblerina worked with that as well. Mermista as water, Sweet Bee as fire (her sting), Perfuma earth, Flutterina wind, and Peekablue spirit with her psychic abilities. Bubblerina has elements of water and wind. Sprittina also represents Earth, while Kowl and Kowla are wind. Madame Razz is spirit and wind. Loo-Kee is  spirit.

    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.

    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.

    More Great Rebellion Artwork by Kevenn T. Smith

    In adding to my Great Rebellion Collection, there are now two more characters that haven't appeared in prior releases. "Brightmoon' Angelic Queen" and "Light's Crystalline Hope" depict Queen Angella and Light Hope. Both are available on t-shirts, hoodies, kids' clothes, stickers, iPad/iPhone cases, throw pillows and totes at my RedBubble.com Store. Also available is an Etherian Landscape piece which will serve as a backdrop for all of the characters in one large print. The backdrop(sans characters) is available now on posters, prints, and cards because some fans requested it in order to use as a backdrop for their action figure collections. It's also available on a duvet cover. Click on the pictures below to be taken to the item at my store.

    "Brightmoon's Angelic Queen (Pink)" by Kevenn T. Smith has Queen Angella with pink tinged color in her wings, which is an homage to the pink wings of the vintage action figure.
    "Brightmoon's Angelic Queen (White)" by Kevenn T. Smith is offered for those who want her with the all white wings that she appeared with in the cartoon.
    "Light's Crystalline Hope" by Kevenn T. Smith depicts the character Light Hope with his "column of colored light" form that he appeared as in the cartoon the most along with the corporeal "Crystal Castle Man" design for him released in the Masters of the Universe Classics action figure line.
    And finally, also available is "Etherian Landscape" by Kevenn T. Smith.

    All images are hand drawn in pencil, hand inked, and digitally colored in Photoshop.
