Digital Thursday

As a kid I loved the cartoon Thundarr the Barbarian. I mean really, what is not to love. It was a show based on a post-apocalyptic Earth with barbarians and weird creatures and technology and magic and Ookla the Mok.

This is a completely digital one that I painted in Photoshop. I think it ended up being seven layers in total. From bottom layer to top: Background color, light effect, Ookla silhouette, Ooklah color, Ooklah eyes, Yellow highlights, and light effect. In total it took about 2 hours to finish. Eventually I would like to add Thundarr and Ariel to it as well.

The year 1994: From out of space comes a runaway planet, hurtling between the Earth and the Moon, unleashing cosmic destruction. Man's civilization is cast in ruin.

Two thousand years later, Earth is reborn...

A strange new world rises from the old: a world of savagery, super science, and sorcery. But one man bursts his bonds to fight for justice! With his companions Ookla the Mok and Princess Ariel, he pits his strength, his courage, and his fabulous Sunsword against the forces of evil.

He is Thundarr, the Barbarian!*

Anyone who knows anything about the show knows that the only reason to watch the show was Ookla.

To recap:
Wifey leaves on a jet plane early Sunday morning
That makes me sad
I happen to like her
She will be back late Wednesday night
In the meantime I will let the house go to Hell in a hand basket
A big enough for a house hand basket
I will get some good lovins from Little Man though, so that will be nice
Next week's Digital Thursday will probably be Batman
Have a great weekend everyone

* There are so many fun things about this intro. In fact, there are too many to go into.

Okay, after doing some checkbook and bill paying stuff last night, Wifey says, "I just wrote a post"
So, she has updated for all of you who have been waiting patiently as well as impatiently
She, of course, waiting until I was done posting for the week to post
She is like that
She is also traveling for most of next week
Followed closely by a training the rest of the week
So don't expect another post for a but as well
