    I'm new here and I know I didn't introduced myself on the proper session.
    Actually I think it was a little rude of me starting on a topic already created about something else from the series.

    So here I start a topic about it.
    Not much to share, for I'm on the first stages of redrawing the intro opening and don't really wanna spoiler the final result too much.
    Expectations aren't always a good trait to foment.
    I'm having some issues in the last months and i might not be able to continue focusing on this project I set myself to complete as a personal challenge.

    I'm on that awkward situation when you can't find a job and keep on doing your stuff on daily basis and although I'm really enjoying the ride of redrawing and repainting the original artwork, it' a huge - and slow - undertake to start with.

    So, I divided the intro into 8 parts and started from the one I would consider fit to a prototype.
    That one is complete and lacking only background finishing and animation.
    Started the second take a while ago, I'm almost finishing the lineart, but that one is tricky. Lion-O take is full of background and foreground effects that're taking my time for good.

    Anyway, I don't mean to fill that topic with videos, gifs and screenshots, but I hope to share something when time let me to.
    Some friends are asking me to open a Patreon profile - knowing that I'm f*cked up on the matter - but I don't really know how to even do that and engage people that might be interested in this. Besides, traditional animation is something really really slow in pace, if I am to have some deadline to fulfill I'm afraid the final result won't match the expectation at all - mine and fans. Still, I would really be able to focus more on that on a daily basis not having to worry about paying the basic bills that comes to us all.

    Anyway, not complaining, just sharing the love.
    What do you think?

    TAKE 1 (Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, Wilykit, Wilykat and Snarf):

    Looking good. Glad you went with the title remake rather than remaster.

    Both ways seem not right to use, since it's a personal choice remake, no official or 100% faithful at all.
    But I'l try to share what I can in here.

    Actually the first spoiler is all wrong. Only Tygra came.

    I know a lot of time went by, but I'm enable to focus only on that project anymore.
    Yet it won't be abandoned so soon.

    So, a kicking ass update to let you know things still running.

    Some ass kicking, yes.
    Holding myself on to paiting this section cause I need to finish all take 4 lineart first.
    As a follow up, I've painted one frame from Thunder Tank and it's almost as I think it should be tho.
    Weekend was plentiful this time.

    Very nice, but you don't need to put the images in the "Spoiler" tag.

    Good/bad habit from other forums I'm part of. Can't help it.

    Small update on the first post.
    Something went wrong while posting images, I think.

    Thanks. Need some fixes on Panthro's arm, but it'll be fixed eventually in the process.
    Halfway through lineart by now.

    Jaga looks appropriately majestic.
