V for VOLTRON by cheeks-74 V for VOLTRON by cheeks-74
Just an update. :)



Wow... I haven't tried to tackle Voltron (one of my all-time child hood favorites), since I was in grade school. He was always a challenge to draw, and now I remember why I steered away from it. HAHAHA

One of the things that I wish Voltron could do was grapple more. I always felt it was unfair to the villains that once the sword was formed, then the show was pretty much over. HAHAHA

Here I thought it'd be cool to explore that the hands come out from the inside of the mouth, and then the top of the heads were for backslapping punks. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Wrapping it up, this is a rough mock up for a Voltron pin-up I hope to finish in time for the Voltron art of book coming out next year.

Here's some full body shots of the Voltron crew:

Oh hell yes. One of the things I've wanted to get tattooed is the crest from voltron, I just haven't been able to decide on specifics yet.

Very good work! Brings back a lot of memories. Of course, the blood on the blazing sword might be a little much, unless you have a dead ro-beast at Voltron's feet. Oter than that, pretty damn good job.

really want to see that finished! I didn't watch that show when I was young, but voltron is so similar to power ranger's Megazor. Do you think Megazor is a copy or robotic-animalized-extremities is something common in japanes culture?

Thats an awesome take on Voltron Cheeks. I like the idea of the hands coming out thru his lion mouths.
Just an idea, I think it would be cool if you still had the lower jaw showing, maybe at a total 90 degree angle
from the hand. Really awesome regardless. I still have my classic metal voltron and I have the new masterpiece
voltron.

Your version would be badass as a vinyl toy or a Revoltech kit. I'd totally buy something like this in this style. Nicely done.

Love it!

I hope they try and redue Voltron I mean lets face it this was an amazing show back when I was kid. Though I like the addition of the hands, that always bugged me when they did have hands but instead the sword was held in place by a mouth. Epic FAIL on their part. Love the work cheeks
