ThunderCats Concept art 6 by DanNortonArt ThunderCats Concept art 6 by DanNortonArt
Here is a modified group shot based on the first pass. I've added color to this one, changed Panthro's outfit and shrank WilyKit. I'm posting all this art by the way to get the word out on the show. We really need word of mouth advertising since we're not seeing much anywhere else. May 24th 9:30am! That's a Saturday, so break out your cereal boxes and blankets and park it in front of the Mother Box.

Wow! It was an amazing show. But I glad I found the artist behind the designs. You style is fantastic. Has anyone seen your Justice League sketch at WB? A show that based on your design would be epic!

...Is it wrong that I find Wilykat to be more attractive than Cheetara in this pic?

As much as I love sexy-not-wearing-much-Cheetara's final realized concept design, this version for her makes more sense in the cheetah-animal-sense-of-things: super skinny with a few pronounced muscles and long limbs for running. I really love all the designs for the show though, it's a really sharp retelling of the series :)

They really should've advertised this better, heck even grown-ups would watch this out of nostalgia. Great designs by the way.

Huh, how old were the twins here?

I agree with most of the changes, thought I prefer the Outfits of Tygra and Wilykat, here.

Love the new designs and really love the new series (by the way i'm 40 now , so i was a huge fan of the original series and still am , along Silverhawks and yes , the very short lived Tigersharks and since the art stiles , stories and characters were so alike, I'm surprise nobody though of a crossover between the series, as a movie or a mini-series , now that ,i'm sure Everyone would Love to see) Sorry got carried away , on the current series , will there be any of the other thundercats joining the group (or new ones?) on later seasons and finally , will there any changes in Lion-O's look (don't take wrong ,i like the new look , but i think he should be older (aging) , the Book of Omens maybe? , Thanks for listening an old man rant a little , keep the great work and good luck on this and any other projects in the future , may there be many seasons of THUNDERCATS! HOOO!!

I'll see if I can post the announcement elsewhere, maybe on the New York Times or the Los Angeles Times. :)

Those costumes are wonderful, even if they aren't the ones that were chosen for the characters! How do you come up with costume design for cartoon characters? Do you have any tips? :D

I don't like the "shoes" on Cheetra because all I can see her getting her ankles twisted or broken. Other than that, everyone looks great.

nice! finally, been waiting to hear when season 2 is starting. i am having doubts about post6ing this cause i love your stuff so much. big fan for a long time!! love the art on the show, very cool. but the writing is a little on the bad side. does season 2 pick it up a notch. i sure hope so. i work in games and we would have about 5 or 6 guys sitting around watching the new episode each week. the art is great just wish the story gets a little better.
saying this with much respect though

I remembered these clothes from the character sheets we were given when the show begin and I am happy to see them in color.
Cheetara's little super-Cheetara cape is lovely, and I think her pants look more comfortable than on the final design. The difference between Tygra and Lion-O is also more obvious. Lovely!

My favorite concept art released so far. I'll be sharing this on tumblr/facebook/twitter to help get the hype going.

What made the crew of omens decide to make the Thunder Kittens younger after the first pass? Was it just WilyKit who was older at first?
Reply
:icondannortonart:
DanNortonArt Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Professional
Both we're older at first, but once we heard the casting.. The younger voices of Madaline and Eamon we're brilliant so we made them younger to fit the voices. For us, they just stole the show and it also took some of the darkness away by adding a bit more comedy.

Nick-the-Sweep Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
Cool, thanks for the info! Maybe as their actors get older and their voices change the designs will get older too. By the way, you have May instead of March as the air date in your description.

To say I'm very unhappy about the change of schedule is an extreme understatement. It's not just because of personal convenience either.

Not only will the new schedule will throw what's currently a great story back into the Animation Age Ghetto, the ratings are going to plummet. The prime-time airing is what brought back the majority of old ThunderCats fans, who make up a huge portion of the current fan base.

At 9:30 on a Saturday morning most adults will either be sleeping in or taking their kids to Little League or what have you.

their target audience isn't adults. it's kids 6-11 years old.

Target, yes. Actual, that's another thing entirely. Everyone I know who is into this is in the 18-49 demographic, their kids aren't interested.

Besides, none of my friends with kids (and they are legion) let them sit around at home watching TV on Saturday mornings. They want them out of the house and/or bugging someone else. Soccer, Little League, swimming practice, Tae Kwon Do, Tae Kwon Don't... anything but dealing with their own little monsters darlings.

Besides, adult collectors are the ones who are/will be spending the big bucks on the merchandise. (Guilty as charged, once I find them!)
