Yeah, you can never go wrong with Lion-O, or Thundercats actually.
I can never get enough pixelarts from them.
It struck me that no one brought him up, but instead other references that I'm not familiar with.

Love the hair and sword effects. Rad.

PS. How could I know if I have favorited an artwork already? =/

@karakenio: Yeah, I guess that's hard to avoid. But then, you can't go wrong with Lion-O. (Unless it's a lame remake)

@Arkan85: Thank you! 

karakenio (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/21/2022 08:46

Rad. All I see is Lion-O haha

Cool laser effect! Great work!

@gawrone: Thanks! I stole all the ideas myself!

Missed it. Found It. It is marvelous!

@Cyangmou: Much appreciated, thanks again for the CC! 

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 8/19/2021 02:04

@Stickman: Thanks. I was really conflicted about that, wasn't sure how to find a good compromise between that light and the dark semi-reflective surface of the armor.

Cyangmou (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 8/19/2021 01:05

Great Work Cels, was cool to see it coming together and the end result is spectacular.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/16/2021 08:01

Lovely colours. It would of been nice to have seen the lightfromf the sword reflecting onto the body.

@8 bit adventurer: I would have thought you'd be too young to appreciate these 80's and 90's Saturday morning cartoons but I'm glad you liked it! :) 

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 8/14/2021 06:28

Thanks, guys!

@SeDiceBisonte: I had about seven or eight 80's / early 90's references for this character and it's interesting to see people pick up on different sources of inspiration. That being said, the reference I was worried people would miss was the influence of personal armor from X-Com, so I'm happy you picked up on it. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it! 

@b236: Spot on about He-Man and Highlander. Necromonger was not intended but I can see how you got there. :)

8 bit adventurer (Level 3 Fish) @ 8/13/2021 18:22

This is incredible. I'm totally hearkening back to Saturday morning cartoons. Love how the sword breaks the preview border too. Great touch.

SeDiceBisonte (Level 8 Spaceman) @ 8/13/2021 15:23

I'm also detecting a bit of 90s X-Com in the armour in addition to Highlander and He-Man, but I see X-Com (and XCOM) everywhere...

This is just awesome, CELS. I love the feeling of power coming frome the pose and the animation, and that purple/pink looks great against those blues.

highlander meets he-man meets necromonger. love it.
