This is the inked pinup (part one of two) for the Heroes of the classic 1980’s Saturday Morning Cartoon- “THUNDARR- THE BARBARIAN”. Great show that I just picked up last year on DVD, and this is my tribute to the show. Have OOKLA, THUNDARR, and ARIEL ever looked this good? I worked to have a classic “fine” art look to these characters, which is in contrast to the normal 80’s quality generic cartoon appearance they always had. I was really pleased especially with Thundarr’s Sun-Sword and Ariel’s magic- I tried using some different inking techniques to make the effect of their unique weapons stand out- Ookla, well, he has his claws and mean face.
