I did this in January 2012 and forgotten I hadn't uploaded it here. Wasn't til I saw Pixelart Kid's nice ThunderCats/Gods piece that I remembered.  Did some tweaks on it this morning so a bit happier with it. This is designed to be as if there were a ThunderCats game in the vein of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and the sprite is best displayed over backgrounds from that game (and obviously then scaled up to fil the screen as if it were low resolution)

16 colours on his own and 20 colours with the Sword of Omens overlaid.

He was always cool.  :)  I hate the 2011 reboot version with the flowery hair...

You made the old Lion-O design cool again with this!

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 8/21/2014 06:40

Thank you sir. :)

It is always fascinating to see how you manage to be so precise in terms of anatomy, proportions and design on such a small scale.

Excellent sprite!

Thank you.  And yes it would. :P

I had the CPC version as a kid.  It was...well..enjoyable in a basic way but didn't really make much use of the huge potential the license has for a fun video game.  The game's title music was great though.  Wasn't anything like the cartoon's classic theme but it was still a great piece of 8-bit much. :)

Ahhhhhh that sounds great, too bad the only game of the Thundercats (ZX Spectrum / Amiga / Commodore 64 version), not good.

This is great! A pixel art Thundercat game would be a dream come true.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 8/20/2014 08:51

Yeah could be fun.   Each ThunderCat could have unlock new parts of the map like using Tygra's stealth to get through one section, Cheetara's speed to get through another and Panthro's strength another too.  Would be cool.   But it will neeeever happen.

I did a CPC Lion-O years ago but don't think I uploaded it here.  Also did Mumm-Ra with him too.

No CPC style Lion-O :( Great sprite!
