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.
