    Although it might seem like an unusual comment, I think the thing I love most about your ThunderCats art is that you actually have a real knack for capturing the essence and overall personality of the 'Cats and conveying that in a single image. For example, your Cheetara is both feminine and strong as one, ditto this piece makes Lion-O look very youthful yet mature and strong, all captured in one image! :)

    I think if WB still plan to create a new ThunderCats series, they could do a lot worse than to look to your artwork for character design ideas! :)

    Take care... :)

    oh my good-knees, thank you so much for that, chris! that's incredibly flattering of you to say, & gives a really big boost to my ego.

    eventho i did it in a slightly more anime style, i did indeed try to make a younger lion-o here. if done rt, anime can convey a lot of emotion w/out too much detail. i tried to show a bit of "yeah, i'm young, but don't mess w/ me. i'm LORD OF THE THUNDERCATS!!!" w/ a lil squint of his eyes.

    i was toying w/ the idea of doing a full figured lion-o wearing that black ninja training outfit (from "the return") in this style whenever i get a chance.

    saltygirl, this pic rocks! I really do love your style of artwork, and would definitely love to see some more! You have a quality to your artwork I haven't seen anywhere else. Keep it up!

    I definitely mean every word - I love the art you've been showing us! I'd love to see your Panthro - he's possibly my favourite ThunderCat, and I'd love to see your rendition of him and what elements of his personality you'd showcase! :)

    I'd love to see that for sure - what sort of frame would you give him, a muscular one or a slim, lithe one? I'd be interested to know! :)

    Take care... :)

    thank you, tygra-wan! i'm coming up w/ a lot of ideas to do more tcat fanart. just need to find time in doing them.

    ah yes, panthro & his kickass nunchakus. haven't really considerd drawing him (maybe because he doesn't have hair? i DO love drawing crazy thundercat hair!), but i could give it a shot. it'd be a cool challenge!

    well, i'm not 1 who likes the big beefake/sterroid abuser look. so i think i'd make him slim but still athletic (tight, toned, & defined).
