Thundercats Ho by andyparkart Thundercats Ho by andyparkart
Well, one Thundercat that is. I'm a '80s kid so I was a huge fan of all the cartoons during that time. I always liked Panthro- he was smart and he had bad-ass nunchucks. This is my homage to that cool cartoon. This was definitely a fun one to paint up! Wonder if there'll ever be a movie based on this franchise...

Oh, that is awesome!

If they made a Thundercats movie, they better do it damn well.

You know Cartoon Network is rebooting the series right? If it does well maybe a studio will option the rights for a film.

As an 80's kid, i was also hooked up to the show (still am actually) and Panthro has always been my favorite!

Well done!

This is a truly amazing render. Sincerely i didn't think that it would work to see thundercats without the cartoony feeling.

I guess i was wrong!

omg, i agree 100%. thundercats should be turned into a movie. but how disappointing would it be if they chose crappy actors or changed the plot too much?? i would move to africa if they ruined thundercats.
also, this painting is fantastic. i like how it looks like he is emerging from the shadows to kick some ass. very well done.
