Fuerza-What?!


As if He-Man and all the characters of the Masters of the Universe weren't wacky enough... There is also a little line called Fuerza-T. What is Fuerza-T? Why haven't you ever heard of it? Well, it's a knock off line that used the old molds of the original Masters figures, but repainted, and re-arranged into new characters. They were available somewhere in South America, if anyone has more info, feel free to leave comments and enlighten us all. Needless to say, this piece, was done for a very good and very patient friend of mine, he's waited a long time for this artwork that depicts the mighty Platino and the ferocious Felinor locked in mortal combat. Poses inspired by Earl Norem's work on Masters, so even this piece of artwork is a knockoff of sorts. Nonetheless, it was great fun to do, and I'm very happy to be done with it. Let me know what you think of these guys! Can you find what character parts from MotU made up these characters from Fuerza-T?

nate, you just blew my mind with this piece!

i love the energy of it, and all the cool little details you added, like the glowing blade + claw-detailing on felinor's sword, and platino's armor and weapons decked out in jewels.

good times!

That's lovely man! I love the colours!
Is that painter or photoshop?

Nathan Baertsch said...

@ Eamon, it's both. Almost everything from me nowadays is both. I rarely do anything exclusively in one or the other programs. However Painter 11 may change that for me...

I still find Painter extremely frustrating to use (especially cos Im so used to Pshop!)
