    Thunderdome 8 Announced!

    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
    Transformers
    He-Man and the masters of the universe
    Fraggle Rock
    Jem and the holograms
    Jetsons
    Dungeons and Dragons
    Duck Tales
    Real Ghostbusters
    She-Ra
    M.A.S.K.
    and MANY more.



    Guidelines:
    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. )

    Judges:
    Not yet set.

    Due Date: October 31st(Halloween)

    Prizes:
    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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...
