Thundarr redesign by RedHeretic Thundarr redesign by RedHeretic
So my buddy at work challanged me to a contest to redesign Thundarr the Barbarian as he was also a fan of the show back in the day.

So here is my take. Tried to find a balance between a more serious and gritty design while staying true to the essence of the original- a savage in a world of tech ruins. Using the scraps that he finds but not understanding how they work. Hope y'all dig. All comments and crits are appreciated.

This looks like it could be a Thundarr novel cover if they were made.

I keep trying the reimage Thundarr and I've yet to come close to this one. Will you do the rest of the cast?

Damn this is the shit dude I love it man I was they'd either make a live action movie of Thundarr but that might be a joke or redo the series like they redid HeMan and the Masters of the Universe.

This is totally raw, awesome art. I love it! You keep the aspects of the original but bring the design well into the 21st century. Nice work.

Demon Dogs! That's cool. The bracer that holds the Sun Sword is what he needed. Makes more sense than the armband in the cartoon (what was that made of? Double sided tape?)

"Thundarr the Barbarian" was such an INCREDIBLY AWESOME show!!!! In fact, it ranks up there with one of my favorite cartoons of all time. This redesign you have of him, though, fits the personality of Thundarr way better than his simpler traditional look did.

I think they should make a movie. Don't you agree?

Yes, depending on who did it. Could be very cool.

Peter Jackson should do it. He's the same guy who made the "Lord of the Rings" movies, amongst other things, and I think he would be the best choice for a Thundarr movie.

Peter Jackson's also's working on an adaptation of the recent steampunk series "Mortal Engines." The first book came out around 2005, and the movie's supposed to be due in theaters by 2012. I can't wait for that one to be released!

I dig it. I was a fan too. I really like the tattoo being only on the sword arm. Very nice work on the fur.
