Description:

Really nice solo semi-profile cel of Lion-O with the tip of the Sword of Omens on frame also. What is unusual about this piece is the absence of cels shading on the cel, while the screencap obviously shows that there was a lot of shading added. It is possible that an extra layer was added for shading, which was then shifted or moved slightly to resemble the effect of a flickering candle. In this scene the mutants are torching their way through a door to reach Lion-O, which is why a lot of cel shading was used. This cel begs the question of how the effect was achieved if not done directly on the cel(s) in the in the sequence.
