THUNDERCATS, HO!

Here’s another smidget of Midnight Marauders: The Art of LeSean Thomas Vol.2 (which features a collage of work mostly produced inside of ’06-’07) scheduled for release this summer.

There’s been a lot of talk about the recent Thundercats animated series by WB animation being brought back. Currently it’s been put on hold. That said, i’d like to finally reveal that I was working as the lead character designer in development on this new show along with mega talent and cool buddy, Sam Liu (Godzilla animated). Here’s just a smidget of the amount of designs produced for this project since the final look isnt near this.

Early Lion-o, and I wont get too far into who the kid is, but i think you can get the idea. below are several very, very, VERY EARLY ideas on how to approach the look graphically. I like the original pass out of the 3 the best though. more organic, y’know? I realize from a fanboy stand-point, this can easily turn into a scathing debate on “right and wrong” regarding our beloved thundercats, hee, hee, but i have to admit i was having some fun on this project.

fun stuff…..
