Fourarms to Arms!

Been long...I know. Things weren't really on the right track after a computer crash but I'm back in business. So what better way to start off than with a pic of one of my top cartoons recently...Ben 10.

The following is a pin up of Ben's alternate alian form, Fourarms...which happens to be one of my favourites. I will be doing a pin up of each of his forms eventually. Enjoy!


Olympus Revisited

Well First of all, I'd like to inform you that I've started my Deviantart account a month back. You can visit it at www.jazylh.deviantart.com .

Next up inline, Here a concept I got a few weeks back. It's just my redesigns of the ancient Greek gods with a bit of a 'Modern' feel to it. Each have their own weapons & I'm seeing this from a toy line perpective.


Good news comes with Bad news!!

Ah well I'll start with the good news...I graduated last Wednesday scoring 79.3% & acquired my Bsc I.T degree. One of the happiest days of my life. Things were great.

Well yesterday, the results for the Animax Pan Asia competition were announced & unfortunately The Beast Legion didn't quite make it to the finals. I got to agree I was dissappointed as I had a little hope. Anyway this has only motivated me to write a new much better script for it the next time the competition is out. The only drawback being that it may not be animated by A1 Pictures. so I guess better luck next time.

I'll have the first part of the first chapter posted here on my blog itself in a few minutes.

God of War pin-up!

'Nuff said. :)


Robot Dinos?!...Whats next?

Well stepped into athe transformers territory after quite some time with respect to fan art. I did the character below for a friend of mine from tfarchive.org. It his RPG character called FossilBite who is a TM2 Raptor...honestly I have no idea what that means in TF. Anyway sticking to the Raptor concept, I came up with the sketch & then colored it. I so need to get a hang of coloring metal. Anyway, Enjoy. :)


Beast Legion: Scaraboras

Well, as of now I dont really have a bio for the bug-man of the Shadow Legion. But in his Beast mode his shell makes him impervious to any attacks & his nose can pack a whallop. I'll have more on him until I actually think of using him for an episode.


The Problem with Power

Well this is a sort of cover art I coked up for the MOTU episode problem wuith power. It's simply my vision of a supposed cover. I know I'm far from mastering the Filmation style but I hope you like it.


Caught between a rock & Copperhead!

It's been long since I posted the last pic. well the following pic was just something I did when the staction contest was going on. Zodak finds himself in a very tight spot as he is led into an ambush by King Hsss & faces Copperhead on the other end. I decided to use the MYP blue shading just for fun & imo it worked quite well. The size got a bit out of place though. Anyway heres leaving it to you to decide the outcome of this little confrontation. ;)


Beast Legion Bios: The Doppelganger

The Doppelganger

The Doppelganger is perhaps the Shadow Legions most prized warrior. Haveing the ability to manipulate the form of any one he chooses, he is a great threat to the Defenders of Light & their quest. His ability to transform requires no special armor. Nobody has actually seen his true Beast form although it wil be shown later during season 2.


"The Tree of Woe"

This is a pic I did for the "Practice Makes Perfect" Art Jam we have going. The concept was to focus on expressions in the most natural way. I can't say I nailed it but i was quite satisfied with the final pic. Took me about 20 mins to do the pencils & 45 min to color. I chose a marshlnd as the background for this pic to indicate that the Tree was all alone in the center of the Marshes.


"Brute Force"

Well this a Beast Legion Extra character that will appear in episode 3. This brute is actually one from dozens of such creatures. Ii stuck to a simple yet chunky design. I kinda had a Horse in my head & I decided to design them as a mix of a monster + a horse + a gorilla & heres what I had. I tried a variety of different colors, but green stood out the best. Looking forward to what you think.

I wish I could post the scripts online, but I can't until the results of the competition I enter are out. Anyway here he is.


Violence is Kratos!

Well it's my first feeble attempt at the God of War, Kratos. Definitley not a good peice of work, but I do plan on practicing more of him. So look out for more. The pic definitly has alot of anatomy issues but I still thought of sharing it.


Beast Legion Bios: Tuskas

Cheif Tuskas

Tuskas is the ruler of the Iceland of the north. His village lies secluded in the thick snow regions. Although at first he is a bit reluctant to join the Defenders of Light, he realizes the Shadow legions plan to acquire the Beast armors.

Being the oldest member of their group, he often provides Sound advice & strategies which prove of great use. He has the power to turn liquid into Ice. Standing 6 feet 6 inches tall, He’s a force to be reckoned with in battle & is highly trained. He already has control of his Beast armor when Xeus & gang find him during their search for the armor.

Tuskas’ Beast mode is a giant Walrus, which is equally fast on both land & water. Its attack includes the Walrus Dash & a Giant slam.


He-man & She-ra

Well, been a while since I last posted so i though it should be somehing special. I only wish I were more comfortable with the classic style. Here's He-man & She-Ra along with arch villains.


Beast Legion taken one step ahead!

Well it's time I announce this. Animax, the number 1, Anime channel is holding a Pan Asia Competition & fortunately for me this time, India is on the list. The competition allows participants to enter a script, novel or comic in a 30 min episode format. It can be the continuation of an existing Anime or a brand new concept. The winner gets his script animated by Aniplex, the maakers of FullMetal Alchemist, plus a grand prize of $18,00,00.

Ironically, this contest started only a few weeks after I started drawing the Beast Legion & I kinda see it as a message from above. So I wasted no time & got to writing the first episode & ended p writing 5 . Just sent the scripts along with the character designs yesterday & heres hoping something comes out of it. I'll keep you guys informed as more updates are available, so stay tuned.


Evil Originals!

Below are two of the concepts that were created by a fellow, He-man.orger, Patreek. They are two Awesome characters which i couldn't resist taking a try at. So Here the Evil Mummified Snake Wizard Raptor & Merman's offspring Ickthia. Enjoy!!

Wraptor- Evil Mumified Snake Wizard.

Ickthia - Monsterous daughter of Merman


Beast Legion Bio: Viper Twins

The Viper Twins

No one knows much about these two mosterous sibblings, except their fierce nature , cunning & agility in times of battle.


The OverLord of Evil....Filmation Style

Well, I've rerely posted pics in the classic Filmation Style we all new & loved. I was planning to post it on my Birthday on the 4th but my net backed off. Anyway here is a pic of Skeletor.


Beast Legion Bios: Master Surya & Brilight

Its been some time since I updated this blog. So to make up for the lost time here two best Legion characters.


Brilight is a gentle creature & is refered to as the 'Light Gaurdian'. But when time comes he can be as ferrocious as ever. Brilight emit & powerful ray of light from its bdyl which can instantly vaporize Shadow Legion Minins & hence is impervious to their attacks. It helps the heroes to sniff out the different Best armors the come their way .

Master Surya

As short & frail as he may look, Master Surya is one of the most powerful wizards in Lithopia & the only remaining survivor of the 'Union of Wizards'. It was he along with his apprentice who tricked Dragos & sealed him in the Hell Hole void. Rescuing Xeus, Doku trians him in the art of battle to fight Dragos & hiss minions. Doku uses the wing on his back as a mode of transport that allows him to maneuver out of the toughest situations. he is also the owner of Brilight.


A Killer Appetite!

It's time I took at try at another FMA character. This time, its the ever hungry Homunculi, Gluttony. He's one of the characters that really sparked my interest in the series. He looks so harmless , yet when time comes he can be as ruthless as ever. So here's my try at revealing Gluttony's personality. Hope you enjoy it!!


Beast Legion Bio : Armoured Minion

Armoured Minion

These are Shadow legion Soldiers I have planned for the latter half of the series. These brutes are slower but more stronger & deadly then the regular Shadow legion minions. Their stell bdies make them impervious to swords stabs . Their weapon includes Two vertically rotating arm blades, thats lice any object that comes their way.


Beast Legion Bio : Tazmonak


Tazmonak is an evil bounty hunter, who'll do anything for the right price. However due to an attempt of betraying Dragos, Tazmonak is now forced to serve the Shadow legion, under Dragos' spell.

Tazmonak's Beast form, a Tazmanian Devil, looks small, but his agility & speed is incomparable. Once in his beast mode he goes on a viscious rampage against his opponents till he pics them.


Dragon Blasted!

I have no idea when I had done this version of Dragon Blaster Skeletor. Needless to say it a very old peice i had done using MS Paint.


Beast Legion Bios: Poka


The sole survior of the Krios tribe, inhabitants of the forests of Greenak, now known as the Tomb of the giant, Poka is a 14 year old who's dream is to become a Hero one day. As to how he is the sole survivor will be exlained when i releae episodes. Since he is the last survivor of his tribe, he is given the the Shell of thorny Spines , a back armor that allows him to transform into a Hedgehog-like Gaurdian Beast. His weapon includes a specially crafted Krios boomerang that multiplies when thrown.

The problem is Poka hasn't got the experience to use it which often creates a number of blunders usually getting him into trouble. His constant sneezing, allows his best form to trigger on & off & throw his spikes randomly. But all in all., Poka posseses goodness & often provides a bit of humor in the lives of our heroes.

As to why he is named the Giant killer, I assure you time will tell.


Alfonse Elric

Been experimenting with other characters lately & heres Alfonse Elric from FMA, which to me is one of the best Anime shows out there. This is only part of a larger pic im working on.


A Clash of Arms!

Yup, thats right. Here's a redesigned version for a classic Masters of the Universe comic, not very long ago for one of the challenges. Clash of arms has always been one of my favourite mini stories & the cover was really dynamic IMO.



Beast Legion Bios : Levaitha


The Evil Levaitha has an iron grip over the Sea of Dregnaut. Imprisoning all the the other undersea dwellers of Dregnaut, Levaitha forces them to work for her or suffer the consequences. Serving the Shadow Legion, Levaitha would never miss an opportunity to attack Xeus & his comrades whenever they cross the Dregnaut sea.

Transforming into a giant undersea Eel-like creature Levaitha can pass electric surges, that stun her opponents & allow her to move in for the kill.


MOTU Redesigns: Set 3

Once, again, heres a set of 3 characters I did for the redesign challenge.





Beast Legion bio: Shadow Legion Minion

Shadow Legion Minion

This is the for a basic Shadow legion soldier. They can actually transform into shadows & hop between shadows & hence constantly spy on all that happens . They are actually created from shadow. However they cannot survive in bright light which gives the good guys th upper hand. But these fierce creatures are known for their deadly claw strikes & camaflouge.


Armed & ready!

Here's a pic of one of my all time favourite MOTU characters, Duncan ( aka Man-at-Arms). I did this back in '03, for one of the annual fan projects we have over at He-Man.org forums co-ordinated by the one & only Ric Nicholls . I always have fun with these.


Beast Legion Chracter Bio: Fyre


Fyre is a young woman & the sole survivor of her tribe. After the Shadow Legion invaded the world for a second time, her people began to fight against the growing Evil but they did not prevail. Fyre still lives with the guilt of seeing her parents die in front of her when she was young & thus protects the other villages from Dragos' wrath in a disguised form.

Now allied with Xeus, Fyre is on a path to set things right & avenge her parents death. She posseses a band she wears on her right arm, given by her mother,which allows her to transform into a Pheonix, I bird said to be made from Fyre.

MOTU Redesigns: Set 2

Heres the next set of MOTU redesigns i did for the He-man.org redesign challenge.

Apart from raw power, Stampede has a great intellect as he plans verious strategies to bring down his opponents.
Stampede transforms into a Wooly mamoth, & can pass a wave so powerful it can divide the earth with his giant stomp.

Don't mess with the Man of Steel...

...Darkseid experienced it first hand. This is the first phase of a Superman commission I'm working on for a guy in Germany. Now that he's approved it, I'll be coloring the peice soon. He was good enough to let me choose a style of my own, so I decided on mixing a bit of the animated series look with my own style. This is my very FIRST Superman pic & i was really excited 'cause he liked it in the first draft. He was also kind enough to allow me to post it. Now it's upto you to decide whether you like it.
I'll have the colored pic posted soon. Sorry I can't provide a larger image.
Also I will be putting up the first character profile of my first 'Beast Legion' characters so keep an eye out.


'The Beast Legion' is here!

If you're wondering what 'The Beast Legion' actually is , wait no further. 'Beast legion' is a character line concept that came to my mind 5 weeks back & after that I just had to start developing the character designs for this. It is MOTU inspired in alot of ways, but the concept is completely different.

The concept is based in a mystical land of peace & prosperity until the day an Evil Force know as the Shadow legion attacked under the Evil leadership of the Wizard Dragos, a being of immense magical power. In order to retaliate against Dragos' attacks the ancient wizards created mystical armors that allowed the person who wore itto transform into a mystical Guardian Beast. With these powers the forces of good stood a chance , until a defected ancient gave Dragos the secrets to make the armors for his evil minions as well. After years of struggle, the forces of good managed to banish Dragos to a parrellel universe known as the Hell Hole.

But now Dragos seeks to return & rule the land , & only a guardian with the Royal bloodline can defeat the forcess of Darkness, as per the Prophecy.

I'll definitly Have more story conceps up later, but I'll make it a point to post a new character design per day, which I hope you guys will enjoy. Let me know what you think so far.

But wait... I'm not going to let you guys go empty handed so here's a special Beast Legion 800x600 Wallpaper . Character designs & bios are soon to follow, so keep looking out. Cheers.

Snakes Alive!!

Well not really.... but I gotta catch up on the days I've missed so here are some Snakemen concepts I had doodled in MS Piant some 3 years back. Not best works now, but I hope you enjoy.
