Demon Dogs.... by cheeks-74 Demon Dogs.... by cheeks-74
My boy Ryan B. texted me over the weekend a couple weeks back... and said "you should draw Thundarr....."

I'm thinkin'... Dude... what!? So all of a sudden I gets ta rememberin' the "Superman and Lois moment" in the Christopher Reeves and Margot Kidder team-up... you know the one I'm referring to.. but in case ya don't... it's when they were flying together for the first time... so I starts to think... Can he read my mind? Can he hear my very thoughts? " hahahaha

But yeah... the REAL reason, too was I have been wanting to go back to Thundarr and Ookla, with an addition of Arial. :)

Well, I guess you all can take it from here, that I COULD NOT resist such a tease!

MAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNN, I can't get enough of the 80's! toons.

Hope y'all digs!

I'd forgotten about Thundarr. Didn't they say the world would end in 1996? Yet another cartoon lie.
Anyway cool drawing.
Fugiri-Shi Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010
Soooooo classic. Oh thank heaven the world didn't go to hell in 1997 like this show says it does XD

Every time you render these characters, they get just get better and better. These are sooo good...I'd totally be down with an Ookla toy.

Man, I can same the to you! You rock. Thank you for your kind words! :)

Ookla is the father of Jar Jar Binks.

I catch the show on Boomerang every now and then.

I remember catching the show on Saturday mornings and then after that waiting for the Godzilla shows to come on afterwards.

Everything wasn't better in the old days!:shakefist:

PrimeOp Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010   Digital Artist
The angle and what you did with the designs (esp. the weariness on Thundarr's face) make this more than just a nostalgia trip. Great job!

I loved that show, really wish it was on dvd... and had a remake in the works...the setting was awesome.
MaverikXIII Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2010
This piece is awesome! Though truthfully I like the re-design of Ookla the Mok you did a while back. Man i hope they release those episodes on DVD. The centurions would be sweet, but what about the Silverhawks?!
JoshuaLam715 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010
Thundarr was way ahead of his time. One of my all time favorite 80's toons. Nice work!
JTGuilber Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010

KnightRanger Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010
I love 80's cartoons and Thundarr the Barbarian was one of them. It was great mix of medieval, sci-fi, and fantasy elements. Wonderful artwork!

very simple colours and lines

nicely done
AdamC11779 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010
This is awesome!!! I love Thundarr! My TiVo also loves Thundarr, as made apparent by the 13 episodes it records over and over... Its been playing pretty regular on Boomerang Network for about 2 months now. Classic deigns and voice acting at its best. My 4 year old loves this show, even though the opening is a little harsh, you know with the destruction of civilization in 1994. Apparently, no one noticed it happening with everything else going on... The Olympics, Woodstock, The Chunnel Opening and of course O.J. Simpson...

Hells Yeah. This rocks and brings back all kinds of memories!

I LOVED this show!
I've always wondered though. Where exactly was Ariel a princess from?
thaBEAST Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
@ 101boy... I was going to suggest 'GOLTAR & THE GOLDEN LANCE' too!

Ol' School 70's/80's cartoons would be dope if given the 2010 remix - particularly with CHEEKS' stylee!
thejason10 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2010
Shut the front door - THUNDARR!?!? Love it.
