Gort's Icons, He-Man
I was looking through IconPlanet's icon wish list one day. There were a lot of good ideas, but one in particular jumped out at me. Someone wanted He-Man icons...I suddenly realized, "So do I!"
A couple of months later, here it is. 45 "Masters of the Universe icons! Some are good...a few are great...and a few are really lousy, but it's been a lot of fun making them.
Between the actions figures, the comics that came with them (drawn by different artists frome issue to issue), and the cartoon, a lot of visual variations were produced. I didn't choose one medium to base these off of...it really depended on what I had at hand. So if you had the Zodac action figure, and you *know* the helmet wasn't that wide...there's your explanation. Also, the names may be a bit off...if you notice this, let me know, and I'll correct it. The backgrounds behind the characters provide both visual depth and more "grabbable area."

Not bad...I went with the long-haired version, rather than the short-haired action figure.
On the small side. I went with the princess style, instead of the snake-gear.
I like it. I thought about putting the laser and flag in there, but hey.
Cool. The off-center pose is nice.
A little rough...but you know, Beast-Man, rough, Beast-Man, rough. S'okay.
Not much contrast, and Rod said it looks like there's a pink squid on her head.
One of my favorites. I didn't expect it to turn out that well.
Pretty lame, which is unfortunate...he's a cool character.
A little odd-looking, but not bad.
Also bad...that gray with purple is downright ugly.
Not too shabby.
I like the tilted head.
I impressed myself with the shading.
Ugly...it just doesn't look right.
Not amazing, but decent.
A little off, but not bad, considering the subject.
It was hard to get much detail in there and keep the two heads, so this one isn't all that hot.
Looks a little young, but who cares...it's Sy-Klone.
Perhaps due to the size of the head, it looks a little out of place.
He-Man's Battle Armor
Pretty good...but it's not a head.
Not enough definition, but otherwise good.
Good, but the dithering hurt it a little.
Not too bad...if you like the head that's in front.
The head is pretty large.
Looks a little dorky.
A different pose might have been better.
Nice...dithering is a little rough, but it gives it a bit of a fur effect.
Not much I can do with that one...I tried putting his huge fist in there, but it never worked out.
I'd like a Whopper, please.
...this one wasn't too hard.
Looks a little cartoony.
...if only they all looked half this good.
Filler. Just a character from one of the comics ("Slave City).
I like it.
