After 18 pain staking hours of work in PS and Paint 7 Thundercats - HO by ~Remainaery comes to life. If I spent that much time in PS, I would just need a new mouse battery. This piece brings back so many fond memories of childhood, some of the younger members might not know who these characters are, but the rest of us are going 'Thunder Cats HOOOO!' I still have the toothbrush holder.

Thundercats - HO

Thunder... Thunder... Thunder... Thundercats! Hoooooo!

This might be rare, but I actually have to say a load about this. Wacky. Here we go.

Well, it's been quite a while since I uploaded anything, and it's quite a while since this show hit the screens for the first time. Actually, being from 85 as far as I recall, I'm only one year older than the Thundercats. Apparently it aired in Germany at least 5-6 years later (guess it was in 1991 or near it), otherwise I could hardly remember (I suppose), but I saw the first season waaaaay back then when it was something new on TV over here and some of the re-runs every now and then throughout the 90's.

Either way, it's a classic piece of childhood memory, and boy did I dig them Thunderkitties when I was little. In fact - I still do, even though it appears I almost forgot about it, until the day I had this convo with Rianq and one of us, I cannot say for sure it was me, but I THINK it was me, commented some other remark with the "Thundercats-Ho!"-line. That's when the tragedy began to unfold.

A little later, I found this piece [link] on AR rather by accident, after that Rianq went to find the original theme song somewhere, and so on - and the urgent need to draw something Thundercats-related grew and grew.

And here it is. After two attempts at drawing some simple comic-style group pic (of which at least two certain people think the first one was actually the best of them all, wheep) I thought this would be a good opportunity to go and try to venture into digital painting some more.

So this took shape, and I personally like it, even if it has its obligatory little flaws and errors and differences to the original characters.
I sure favored Tygra (handsome and smart) and Wilykat (handsome and not smart) a lot. The rest of the crew was cool too. Including villains. Heck, even Snarf. But I was scared of Mumm-Ra in the past, eep. Looking at it now, I think Mumm-Ra's the coolest of the bunch. So he had to be in this pic as well, despite the fact he actually does not really fit in the display of the heroes, but who cares? No heroes without evil villains, and don't we all just love those evil laughing evil maniacs with the failproof (evil) plans for the universal sake of being evil that never work? I think I'm gonna marry Mumm-Ra. Did I mention the term "evil" so far already?
Well, at least cloaks and bandages are fashionable. Not like some other person in the cartoon that still scares me like hell due to the lack of REAL pants. Lion-O, dear, underwear in public is NO fashion statement, it's a crime. There's nothing more ridicolous than men in briefs. That goes for you too, Panthro.

Okay, I could ramble on and on, but I guess that has to do for now.

Painter & PS 7, about 18 hours (HECK. long!)

One of the best shows of the 80s! And one of my childhood favorites!
