Thundercats: Going For Gold

WORK IN PROGRESS...

No shadows and color balance yet, but here you go.

The initial plan was to throw some Nikes onto Cheetara as another mock ad for the Olympics. __________________________________________________________

And here's the inspiration!



I remembered this being one of the best cartoon intro's of the 80's. Great pacing, dynamic poses, exaggerated timing and in-your-face action, and cool effects animation!

Humm... agree, Thundercats are awesome BUT remember the intro to The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers? ...or MASK? I wish they would remake the Galaxy Rangers (and do it properly)! 80's cartoons are FAAAAARRRRRR better than today's cartoons. How many TMNT spinoffs do we need? =D

Thanks for commenting, everyone. Things are starting to getting pretty hectic for me these days, so we'll see when I'll get the chance to revisit this...or...maybe that's just an excuse 'cuz I still need to learn how to paint. :)

Anyway, hope everyone's doing good!
