Masters of the Universe art by Simon Soltau

When I’m not posting here at The Retroist, I can often be found over at my 80’s Animated Fan-Art Tumblr, finding awesome fan-created images of He-Man, Thundercats, and other animated shows that I grew up with. It’s always a joy to discover new art, especially when it is as good as these pieces from German artist Simon Soltau.

Paintings such as ‘Attack of the Invisible Gnomes’ (above) and ‘He-Man and the Power Sword’ (below) are the reason that I enjoy fan-art so much and spend hours a week trying to keep track of it all. Head on over to Simon’s Deviant Art profile where you’ll also find the brilliant King of Grayskull.

You should also visit his blog where you can discover a little about the process involved with creating such art, like this video:

For more cool MOTU fan-art, my Tumblr is a great place to start.
