Man-E-Faces vs. Shakespeare

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

So I have completed my second Masters of the Universe-related piece of art in just over a year. This one is actually a tattoo design for the same friend I did the Faker painting.


My friend who came up with the concept of this design told me what he wanted me to draw, but didn’t really explain what was going on. All I know is that Man-E-Faces was an actor before briefly becoming a villain, and eventually joining He-Man and the forces Castle Grayskull. I am guessing this scene took place back in his acting days. It appears that he has a starring role in a Shakespeare play back when Willy was actually alive to direct his own productions. Man-E-Faces, sporting his monster face, seems quite upset at his director. Apparently, there are some creative differences that need to be sorted out.

My friend and I communicated very little during this collaboration. I don’t even know where he plans to put this tattoo. It is quite elaborate, so I think it needs an area the size of either a back or a chest. Hopefully he likes the work I’ve done, and that I will see the finished product some time soon. As long as its not on his ass.
