Thundercats by pungang Thundercats by pungang
Here's my version of Lion O from the Thundercats... this is not meant to be direct translation from the old or new cartoon. Just my spin on the character.

The biggest change I made is his sword. I went with a curve sword because I felt that fit the whole cat theme better then a straight sword. Other then that, it's pretty straight forward for a warrior design.

There's a problem I read. They might cancel, Thundercats. We must stop them from canceling the show. Protest the HELL out of cartoon network and warner bros. Go on their web sites, facebook, so on. Pass the word. Help keep, Thundercats on the air. Call cartoon network at (404)-878-0694

Your spin on Lion-O looks pretty nice. I like the rough edgy coloring style and your explanation of the curved sword does make seems and seems more fitting for the character. Really nice work. :)

I just signed the petition. I can't believe they are considering to cancel the show. Are they insane?

Reminds me a bit of Conan the Barbarian, which is hardly a bad thing. Only real complaint is in dealing with the logo.

I like the scimitar over the longsword, good change. I like his long flowy hair, and I really like the mostly exposed skin and belly. I do miss his beard, and the 5 o'clock shadow doesn't make sense to me, it implies shaving and his whole body has fur.
I can't give you any technical tips as you're just better at all of that than me. Although the cat logo sticks out a bit too much though.
I like this.

More on the sword, how would it do the whole "Thunder!" -sword extend- thing? I imagine that detail near the hilt would open and roar, then the blade would come out starting from nothing rather than starting out short.

This is a really cool design. I am sculpting Lion-O and came across your pic in an image search... love your re-design of the sword of omens, and was wondering if you would mind me incorporating some of your design elements in my sculpt. It is basically a portfolio piece, well let me know I wouldn't want to use your designs without permission... Thanks!

Oh, really?! Lion O? He's all steely-eyed and menacing, thought he was a bad guy at first.

Pose is really nice and natural looking.
