    Frank Langella as Skeletor

    Hey gang...here's my latest painting! 11x14 acrylic on canvas.
    This is my favorite role of Frank Langella, and my favorite movie villain of all time. He was really challenging to paint, because his face is totally buried in makeup, leaving only his eyes to really capture his likeness. I also added a lot of color to the stark white face to enhance the features. Hope you all enjoy!

    Great work!

    I love Langella's portrayal of Skeletor. It's definitely the highlight of the MOTU movie, and one of the all time great villain perfomances, in my opinion.

    That is insanely cool!! Langella was awesome as Skeletor. He loved the part and it shows. He makes the movie. Definitely one the all time great movie villians.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I guess I need to give this movie a try again. I was so disappointed in it, because it is so far off any of the source material. I do remember like Langella in the role though.

    Either way, nice painting!!!

    A short clip of Langella talking about Skeletor. One of his favorite parts.
