Saw this years ago, and heard tell this was some imagery around a proposed He-Man & the Masters of the Universe update movie. Nothing seems to have come of that, though.

Still, the image is wonderful, and I was wondering if there were any more done of the characters in this style?

Or perhaps (since it seems to be fan art) if someone knew who created it?

    Searching for the art on Tineye suggests it's a deviantart creation. Alas I cannot follow the link while mobile

    @Valorum As far as I can tell it does appear to be a Deviant Art creation, yes. See my answer.

This appears to be by the Deviant Art user nebezial. Whilst I can't be sure, it was published 14/03/2009 which is roughly when the new film was first rumoured to be in production as far as I can tell. The original post is here.

The artist also has a lot of other similar art, with this one perhaps being the closest.

  • Thank you. That does seem to answer the question.

  • It appears to have had a number of unattributed usages; I found one on Gizmodo for example, several on YouTube and other places too.

  • @DavidW Oh it's been used all over the place. I had to filter out wallpaper websites, for example.

    @TheLethalCarrot Sure, that's why I checked Gizmodo; I figured even a CC BY-SA image should be properly attributed on a commercial site... :-P
