View Full Version : Character :: Lion-O from Thundercats

11 November 2003, 03:11 AM
Hello everyone, here is something I've been working on for about a month now that I started for fun with the intention of just making a model and posing him with no textures or pretty much anything else.. well, it turned out i ended up experimenting with some binding things and other stuff I can't remember right now and spent much more time than i wanted to on him. So here he is and I hope you guys enjoy it! Feel free to comment. I forgot to smooth a couple of things out so bare with me. .. and i do plan on making the whole lineup on my spare time. :thumbsup:

Very cool, I loved thundercats as a kid.

Not bad at all! Did you see Nebelis's work?
I like the pose, and the lighting gives a kind of toon like feel.

oh yeah!! i saw his sword of omens... he did a beautiful job with it. I couldn't tell if it was real or not for a sec. Of course, the version I modeled was much simpler. I took the design straight off some screencaps in the series and did the best i could with what i found. Thanks for the comments guys!:D

Cool idea you had there, I watched Thundercats a bit when I was a kid too. But I was thinking that if you're going aiming for a really dramtic, eye catching cover for your comic you might want to zoom in a little and show your hero in a more dramtic pose. Just a thought. Nice work!

Saturdays at 8 that was the time and right in front of the tv was the place. Great work by the way.

Thanks a lot guys! Thundercats was definately something most of us grew up with and a total inspiration every time i think about it.

Jonny Newo - I totally agree bro, although I'm not really making a comic but just trying to present it a bit better than just a plain render with a black background. A friend bugged me a lot until i gave in and made it look like a comic book cover. So I just did a quick photoshop and it doesn't look too bad for not knowing anything about cover layouts and whatnot for comic books.. hehe.

tgn376j - good times, the funny part for me was watching it in Spanish where I grew up, thank they didn't change the names too much.. lion-o = leon-o.. it was weird.. but it loved it and still do.

Thanks for taking the time to post guys, I appreciate it. I am currently working on other characters of the series and might either start a new post or just continue on this one. Take care!:thumbsup:

Hey everyone, here's another one of the Tcats i'm working on. Still needs some tweaking and some areas are not smooth. I plan and making the "good guys" lineup first and put them in a pose and smooth and render them at some point. Enjoy!:D

Hey man what's the poly count on him right now?

12 December 2003, 06:31 PM
He is about 5k at the moment. i plan on smoothing all of them once i'm done with modeling and posing them.

I havent seen Thundercats for ages!
so where's my favourite Cheetarah?

12 December 2003, 11:18 PM
well i'm glad you asked my friend, here she is.. took me a bit to respond but i wanted to make sure i put her in a pose before i showed her. Next one up? i'm not sure.. but when i decide i might tell ya.. or not, maybe a surprise..

:beer: I love it

12 December 2003, 02:54 AM
Man oh man Thundercats rule.

Those're great models btw.

12 December 2003, 06:08 PM
wasn't Cheetara a bit taller? and less muscular?
at least that's how I remember her

12 December 2003, 07:04 PM
Thanks for your comments guys, i really appreciate it! :beer:

As far as her being taller... it is possible, but will have to wait till i post a group shot to be able to tell who's taller than who.. and as far as the being too muscular.. yeah, i went a bit overboard cause i thought she would look sexier and would make a bit more sense for a super fast superhero.. dunno, i like it. But thanks for the comment.

Hello everyone, sorry for the long wait but here's a little update of what i've been working on. It doesnt seem like much cause i've had a hard time working on those treads and finally got em to work to a point where i can animate the tank any way i want... yes expect to see it doing a little dance soon! hehe, well I made a render with vector rendering in Maya just for the fun of it and it looks pretty nice. Thanks to Ken Norman for the suggestion! Although I'm not sure if I will keep it this way or not.. i guess i'll test it after i make a little animation and see both versions.

Well, here you go, have fun!:thumbsup:
