Thundarr, Ookla and Ariel by tombancroft Thundarr, Ookla and Ariel by tombancroft
Here's my inks of a cartoon-y version of Thundarr and Ookla, as well as the tight sketch version of Ariel, Thundarr's wife in the classic Hanna Barbara TV show.  This is just for fun and by the suggestion of Sean "Cheeks" Galloway who thought it would be fun if we teamed up and did our favorite H-B TV show characters and put them all together.  More to come.  This is gonna be epic!  

Pencil on paper, Kuretake ink pens for the outlines.

Actually Ariel isn't Thundarr's wife. She's the step-daughter of Sabin, An evil wizard king who Thundarr and Ookla were slaves to. Ariel helped Thundarr and Ookla escape and they keep her life from getting really boring.

Nice work!  I used to watch this as a kid...show was derived, I believe, from a book titled "Thundar, man of two worlds" by peter bloodstone.

I may be wrong on that point.  It's a guess.

Fond memories of Thundarr. But I thought the show was from a couple of artists who split with HB and started their own studio, Ruby Spears. Either way, this piece is well done.

Was Ariel Thundarr's wife!?! I did not know that.

Regardless, very cool pic of 3 of my favorite characters. I'd love to see a new toon in your style here. :D
