I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TIME to work on this week's submission, so I just did a portrait of Lion-O, the leader of my favorite childhood cartoon, Thundercats. I updated him a little bit, got rid of those pansy sideburn poofs he had, but essentially he's the same. I'd like to do another, more involved piece in the future, maybe featuring all the characters. A guy can dream.
I love this series. If you look back at my "When I Grow Up..." piece, you'll notice I have a Thundercats sweatband on my right wrist, which I actually own (and am wearing right now, in fact). In my opinion, this show features by far the best opening animation of any cartoon series of the '80s, possibly even the best ever. Feel free to disagree.
Anyways, enjoy! Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats, HO!
