Thunder, Thunder, ThunderCats-HO! Those are the famous words said by one of the most popular animated heroes of the mid eighties. I heard tell that sometime in 2010, Cartoon Network is teaming up to put out a new and improved version of the cartoon that I am talking about now. This lesson is going to be on the main protagonist. I will actually teach you, "how to draw Lion-O", step by step. Who is Lion-O anyway? Well in the series ThunderCats, Lion-O is the leader of the clan, and he is also considered to be Lord of the ThunderCats. His character design is based upon the mighty, and fearless lion. His powers are extraordinary, and to aid him in his defeats and battles, he is in possession of “Sword of Omens”, which is considered to be a legendary weapon. His sword is able to omit energy bolts, or as we know them to be, thunderbolts. Lion-O also uses the power of “Sight Beyond Sight”, and the claw shield which is the attachment that is on his left arm, or right arm if the character drawing is facing you. Lion-O and his heroic team of other humanoid cat folk, are from the planet Thundera. This unique alien race was forced to leave their homeland or planet because they where attacked by their ruthless enemies, the Mutants of Plun-Darr. The ThunderCats consists of; Lion-O, Jaga, Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, and finally WilyKit and WilyKat. What makes these heroes so unique, is there relation to actual animals, and this is recognized with their names. For instance, Jaga, is based on the stealthy jaguar. Tygra is based on the tiger. Panthro is from the panther race, Cheetara is from the cheetah race, and WilyKit an WilyKat are both considered wildcats. Anyways, if you remember this cartoon, and you liked it, you will love this lesson that will show you "how to draw Lion-O", the leader of the ThunderCats. I will be back with another tutorial for you all to learn from so stay tuned in to see what I upload next!
