Character Designs for ThunderCats
These are the character designs for the 1980's animated tv series, ThunderCats. (scanned for me by Paul! thanx!) These are more than just normal character drawings however in that they show several angles of each character as well as poses (and are labled with definitions and explanations of the characters). Not to mention Rankin-Bass (the animation team on the show) just creates great character ideas. Enjoy!
