Tygra and Cheetara by JoaquimDossantos Tygra and Cheetara by JoaquimDossantos
Here is the fourth in a series of T-cats related artwork I recently did for Kids WB online. You can check out the website here: [link] They will be showing old episodes and you can play some "retro" type Thundercats games!

For those who do not know, or may be too young to remember (that hurts) Thundercats was an awesome fantasy cartoon that came out in mid eighties that had one of, if not THE greatest animated intro ever seen on TV. It rivals some of the best animation out today! just Youtube Thundercats and you'll see what I mean!

Oh and sorry for the watermarks, I just don't want my work stolen.

Wow, this is really something else! I love the speed blur illusion on Cheetara! Beautiful work on some of my favorite characters. Ah, nostalgia!

Love this, especially Cheetara:). I have to ask, are you involved with the new Thundercats animated series in any way?

And I just saw your other three ThunderCat pieces. Wow! I wonder if you can do Lynx-O, Pumyra, and Bengali? I love them! :D

You're the one who did the art for the ThunderCats on-line game at the WB's website? It's great! Thundercatslair.org commented on the artwork quite favorably and that's how I found out about it. Kudos to you, sir! :clap: :clap: :clap:

To DragonArt88: Warner Brothers is interested in the ThunderCats because it now owns the rights to it. They wanted to make a film version of the show, but they couldn't find a good-enough script and then "Avatar" came along, so the project's been shelved until further notice. :(

Once the Avatar tech gets cheaper, a Thundercats movie can't be far behind. These look perfect - love the sig.

seeing all of these pieces is very cool and very saddening too.... this is one cartoon that I wish they would bring back, especially since we got a taste of Avatar and it's now off the air:(

Cheetara remains one of the top three cartoon ladies I'd do if I were a pervert. Which I am not. Not at all. :drool:

Ok, but seriously, these look WAY too close to the originals... did they give you something to use to your advantage cause seriously, these look AMAZING! ALL OF THEM (including your other thundercats posts) LOOK LIKE THE OLD SCHOOL CELS!
