He-man Concepts by EricGuzman He-man Concepts by EricGuzman
Here is a really quick sketch I did of a He-man re-design Idea that i had I might get around to cleaning it up more! let me know what you think!

Update:  I thought it would be cool if he-man had also some shaman abilities by channeling the spirit of grayskull from his gauntlets where he then can cast spells or possibly just shoot energy beams!! the blue glow on the gauntlets is supposed to be the spirit of grayskull!!

Great take on He-man. Funny how simply giving him pants makes it feel more modern... and far less awkward! I really like the gauntlet/power of Grayskull idea too.

I dig it. He doesn't look like a refugee from the crappier end of 70's cartoons anymore. :P

Both are really neat! I really like the chest harness of the right design better, but I also like the shoulder pad of the left design too.

Awesome work. 

Hey do you still have that Alan Scott [classic] Green Lantern I once commissioned? I don't think I ever saw it get posted.

Interesting concepts. It would be even cooler if he became the Avatar of Grayskull, kind of like an Avatar crossover.

Hmm.  If He-Man has this channeled power available, then why does he also need heavier armour protection?  It is not logical or consistent.

And why does he have a pea for a head?

I think redesigns of He-Man never work, since his 'look' is classic and iconic and needs no tampering with.  DC and Mattel have failed again to convince with their silly and pointless changes.

This is a very interesting idea, though I'm not certain if I'd want He-Man to have any more powers than he already has. The fact that Skeletor  has magic while He-Man's powers are relegated mainly to brute force makes their battles more interesting in my opinion. Now Teela on the other hand, I think she should learn magic since her mother is the sorceress so it makes perfect sense.

Apart from that though this is a great design and the glowing gauntlets definitely look cool. Have you done any more He-Man characters? Because I would love to see them.

I've always wondered what would happen if he ever aimed that sword at anyone other than Cringer. In point of fact, I've often wondered what else he could do with that sword since it's supposed to be channeling all that energy. I think the gauntlets are a cool idea.

Heads a little small (at least compared to his arms & shoulders) and he could use a smile. Curious to know what redesigned Adam would look like.

As to the shaman powers, they might be better off on Teela, given what we know about her parentage and her destiny.

i love this very much , it is a great resedign . the one thing i might suggest is that , the chest plate so close to that should pad , is for me  make the design feel a little unbalanced . you may want to try placing it in the middle of his chest , or on the the other side of the chest .  great work as always !!! _dg

I totally agree about the design feeling unbalanced!!so I thought of centering the emblem or completely removing the shoulder pad!! Thanks

I'd just extend the shoulder pad down to the center chest if you re-center the emblem. Just wrap it around him a bit more. The single shoulder pad is still sweet.

I like elements of this. It's definitely more of a gladiator-type feel, which works for He-Man, but as a lifelong He-Man fan, there's still something to the fur loin cloth and boots. They're up there for me like Superman wearing his undies over the spandex. Still, if there was a nice successor to the traditional He-Man look it was the Snake Armor (and I still think the Ice Armor version is a badass, underrated design too). Nice work!

I Totally agree about He-man's Costume I was just trying to give him a different look but it's quite challenging updating an iconic classic costume, Thank You!

Not a problem and I do think you did a good take as an update/different look. He still has all the "power!" in that look, which is awesome.
