The subject this time around is an environment–the Three Towers of the Eternia Playset. It’s probably a safe guess that the Three Towers were an attempt to one up Tolkien. I however, found myself short of time, and was only able to draw up one of the three–here’s the Central Tower of Eternia:
The subtitle comes from the He-Man mini-comic about the Three Towers.
Landscapes and environments are not my strong point, so this was a good exercise. My take on the Central Tower is an attempt to ground the playset in ‘reality.’ The griffin statues were gold on the original toy, but I gave made them less eye-catching in my version to avoid drawing attention away from the Guard Lion, who really is the main attraction here. I tried to create a sense of the epic size of this thing… to give you a better idea of what I had in mind–ten adults could stand comfortably abreast in each of the windows located near the top of the tower.
