Join 500,000+ Artists
Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Your wait is finally over.
Thunderdome 8's topic will be, Redesigning classic 1980's cartoons.
The entries will be judged on these four scales:
Re-Design (Originality, Functionality, overall badassness)
Presentation (How well is the artwork)
Fan Value (does the work credit the characters)
Judge's Tilt (The judges will be able to push a few points to their favorite entries)
Some examples of classic 1980's cartoons are:
Adventures of Johnny Quest
He-Man and the masters of the universe
Jem and the holograms
Dungeons and Dragons
and MANY more.
This is NOT fan art. There must be a visible redesign to cartoon.
One entry per artist, yet you can have multiple designs in one image.
NEW ART ONLY, if you designed transformers before.... and submit it as your entry, it will be declined...trust me it will be known if it's older work.
The Cartoons must have been in an animated forum and popular to SOME DEGREE( meaning they weren't some local nerd cartoonist that no one ever saw his work. )
Not yet set.
Due Date: October 31st(Halloween)
First place, 1 Free CA workshop admission + CA T-shirt
Second place, Original artwork from Marko Djurdjevic + CA T-shirt
Third place, CA T-Shirt
Hopefully we can ring along some other prizes along the way, but we would really like to get this rolling.

Just throwing some more ideas in for you guys:
Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
and MANY more
such a nice topic, this should pull in quite a few entries
Is G.I. Joe one of them? I can't remember because I was in the 80's for only 3 years. lol and carebears?
The GI Joe sure is...
That was one of my favourites as a kid. Storm Shadow is the coolest ninja ever, period!
gummi bears vs pound puppies, with guns!
count duckula and danger mouse, pity trapdoor's a claymation, pole position, jayce and the wheel warriors, and the dodgily titled Bots Master. Samurai pizza cats, that thing where two cats flew around in a jet fighter (Tomcats or something) biker mice from mars.
hmmmm what to choose

this is NOT a challenge thunderdome, it is set up as an over all contest like the ones all before 7.
Damn cartoons were so much better back then... Look at the crap kids have to grow up with now, pokemon and all of those wannabe cartoons like pokemon. But I guess if you gotta catch em all, you gotta catch em all. So many choices in cartoons, I duno what to pick yet. Anyone know if jabber jaw and grape ape were 80's cartoons, they werent up on that 80's cartoon site.
My commy smurf redesigns will OWN you! Ok not really...
Some other stuff (I'm pretty sure these were 80's)
Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors
does anyone have a site of ronan warrior images?
there were samurai`s with mech suits...wasn't very popular... but god i loved it.
w00tage, this is a cool topic.. I'will definatly try to measure myself to you top artist's I need to know where my place is
Clarification please, Thunderdome gods -
Redesigning classic 1980's cartoons
So far all the cartoons mentioned have been TV shows. Does the topic also include feature films, printed media etc.? In other words, can we redesign any '80's cartoon..?
they can be a cartoon movie or tv show, basicly anything animated is what we are getting at.
What cartoons were there in Sweden on gov television at that time? I can't remember a single one, except one about an ufo, some kids and a robot with a drawer in the belly. There were some plant men too that captured them and tied them up to a table :G
Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.
Prom, i think the only cartoons on swedish TV in the 80's were Disney, Bamse, and some russian crap.. and Hanna Barbera of course.. Flintstones and Scooby Doo..
We had a cable TV though, so i got to watch all the other stuff too.
Hmm, I'm definitly doing the smurfs.. love those little blue critters. Got some wicked ideas for Gargamel and Azrael..
Of course I remember Ronin Warriors... I was actually considering doing them.... That or Thundercats or Silverhawks. I just can't decide.Originally Posted by davi
I'm sure you'll find some Ronin Warrior sites... I searched for less then a minute and found a RW webring. Only five sites are on the list though, but come on I only searched for a minute...
hmmm ... are
Tom & Jerry
Charlie Brown & Snoopy
