Would like to share with you my character design for ThunderCats Create and Design in Character in Paintshop Contest.
The Contest was held for all thundercat hardcore fans who are members of the Thundercats Forums.
I am sure you all know about Thundercats was one of the famous Japanese animated toon like He-Man back in the day…it still is very popular till date, and got a huge fan following around the world. Unlike other toon’s, Thundercats chose not to get re-animated or brushed up with latest technology, the creators stuck with the original format and design and that’s what’s made this toon so kick-ass for sticking to it’s root. Me as a kid was obsessed with this toon and till date am a fan...this contest was a simply thing to happen.
Enough of talk from this hardcore Thundercat fan …back to the contest...the rules of the contest were simple
(1) Create a totally new Character
(2) Name the Charcter
(3) But design it only using Paintshop (No Other Software)
(4) Outside images can be used, but final editing will have to be done on Paintshop pad.
So here’s my Character Design – I call him Fangra
You can Check out the design here - [link]
The Sketching and paint job – done in Paintshop (Standard Windows)
The only Outside Elements I used
(1) The Face Mask – used a photoshop standard sun shape
(2) The fangs
(3) The thundercat logo on his chest
Well hope you guy’s like it…do let me know what you think of it…cheers
