THUNDERCATS DEVELOPMENT... by LeSeanThomas THUNDERCATS DEVELOPMENT... by LeSeanThomas
Ok, here's another couple pages of Midnight Marauders: The Art of LeSean Thomas Vol.2 (which features a collage of work mostly produced inside of '06-'07) scheduled for release this summer. These are pages from the sketches section of the full color book.

There's been a lot of talk about the recent Thundercats animated series by WB animation being brought back. Currently it's been put on hold. That said, i'd like to finally reveal that I was working as the lead character designer in development on this new show along with mega talent and cool buddy, Sam Liu (Godzilla animated). Here's just a smidget of the amount of designs produced for this project since the final look isnt near this.

Early Lion-o, and I wont get too far into who the kid is, but i think you can get the idea. below are several very, very VERY EARLY ideas on how to approach the look graphically. I like the original pass out of the 3 the best though. more organic, y'know?

fun stuff.....

*UPDATED with more concept scribbles!*

I love your style and you work is amazing. But how on god's green earth could you remake the thundercats? It just doesn't seem possible or right...

joaquim is his name.

no, but he was present during some of the development process since we are friends with the producer at the time.

he did development at an earlier stage of the show's revamp.
