|Vikor Sketch Card by Taylor Lymbery|
Today's deviation is Vikor! Vikor...Vikor? You might be asking, who in all of Eternia is this guy. Well, he is basically what He-Man would have looked like if there was no Conan license issues. Vikor is based on a drawing that was to be the early He-Man design. Now to be clear; This drawing was not meant to be Conan. Nay, it was in fact meant to be He-Man. (Check out what I'm talking about here.) This character design finally made its way into action figure form this last year as Vikor, He-man of the north! I love it! He's from the north, like the north where Conan was from in Cimmeria, or from the north where... Vikings... were from; you know Vik-ings, like Vik-or... Ok, you get it. I did get a Vikor action figure from the Classics line, and I've got to tell you, He looks like Conan and not the Arnold pseudo Schwarzenegger Conan, but the Robert E. Howard/ Frank Frazetta Conan. Seriously, search Vikor, find a picture of the toy and tell me that that is not basically Conan! There's nothing wrong with that. I love the Conan franchise. Overall, I think Mattel did a great job of incorporating this action figure into the whole Classics toy line. Now I can visually play out the scenario of He-Man fighting, yeah you guessed it, Conan!

HEY EVERYBODY! DALLAS COMIC CON IS COMING UP QUICK! READ BELOW!
Now, I'm going to have a bunch of these sketch cards available at the Dallas Comic Con. I'll be selling them for $10. I am also opening commissions of sketch cards. They will also be $10 + shipping and handling which will be $6 in the continental United States of America. I'll have to get a quote for any territories outside of that. I will also open up my colored page line drawings for commissions. Same price as the sketch cards, but I'll have to check on the shipping (due to the difference in size). If you want to see what I mean by colored sheet drawing, go here. If you want a sketch card, send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Name your character and we will go from there.
The Convention will be May 19th-20th. It will be at the Irving Convention Center that is located at 500 W Las Colinas Blvd. , Irving, TX.
