The cat who cried ho...colored by cheeks-74 The cat who cried ho...colored by cheeks-74
Heya, folks, and folksettes! man, were some of y'all brutal for the way I drew poor Snarf. hahahaha It's all good. I appreciate ya beatin me up, it toughens me up, but I did walk away with some bruises from it no doubt.

Lol, poor Snarf lookes like he just pee'd himself. XDD Love Liono's design. The double ears make him actually LOOK like he's from another planet.

Never liker Snarf in the show, but your Snarf frigging kicks some ass. O__o
I prolly would have liked him if he was anywhere near as cool as your own. Also, the sword of thundera is also very cool in your design ^^ Overall I loved it. You have a great personal style!

Simply a great take on the classic show. I think ThunderCats is one of the main cartoons that got me into art in the first place, and this style really reminds me of my childhood, so props for taking me down memory lane. :D

As far as the piece goes, the flow of the characters really brings them to life and the absence of black outlines adds even more life to Lion-O and Snarf. You have a kick ass knack for laying out the poses and keeping composition in mind, which is always important in art. So again, excellent work! :clap:

thats tighter than the original series. I probably would have liked the original series if it were stylized by you.

I guess since I've been watching you (about a year?) I've seen a slightly more abstract line creeping in, and you've become more daring in your character design. I Love that - Your work is the kind that makes you look 2wice for the details, and doesn't just GIVE the viewer every bit of information at one go.

Maybe that sounds crackpot! But hey, your work's great :)

I've been trying to copy art like yours for a while, check out my gallery if you've a minute.

Diggin the Snarf redesign. I completely agree: too much comic relief as it was.

I'm not sure how I feel about the floating fingers/ears/tail thing you've got goin there, but you've definitely run with it over the past months. I applaud your uniqueness at the very least.

oh snap that is Lion O and Snarf, looking more awesome than ever. This would make a great cartoon. Like I always say your artwork is always a cartoon, even at one frame it tells the whole story as if I was watching minutes of animation. So fluid

well to be honest bro, even with your greatness, it still wouldve been hard tro tell these were thundercats characters...had you not labeled the art that way, and without the logos, i wouldnt have known! i still love the artwork, i just didnt know it was lion-o and snarf until i saw the logo!
