Thundercats is coming back!

Warner Brothers recently announced the exciting news that one of my childhood favorites, Thunder Cats, is being brought back next year. I remember this being one of the most influential cartoon to me as a kid. Funny thing is, I was blown away by how ambiguous the characters were when I saw a clip of Thunder Cats for the first time again since i was 3 or 4 on youtube. I coulda swore that they were bad ass to me back then!

As a practice run to making tutorial videos. I recorded the process of me redesigning Lion-O, the main character from the cartoon. Here's the image, I should be able to post the process video up once I get a chance to organize and edit it.

The original Lion-O (yay for speedos!):

    ahaha I have to agree, I remember watching some of my childhood cartoon shows back then, remembering they used to look so bad-ass. But when you look now, I'm sure we're all thinking, "wtf was I thinking"

    Great work as always Alex, I really enjoy your posts.

    Keep it up my friend.
