silverhawks commission


wings of silver, nerves of steel... silverhawks!
partly metal, partly real... silverhawks!
soaring through the highway of the heavens in their flight,
silverhawks, a rainbow in the night!


re: "partly metal, partly real"...what? metal's not real?

unlike transformers, gi joe, thundercats and masters of the universe,
this was one of those 80's cartoons (along with bravestarr) that was
not part of my regular television diet as a kid. not that i didn't like
it, it was just slightly off of my radar somehow. still, i cannot deny
the awesomeness of those character designs...or that theme song.

Dude, he plays an electric guitar! How could you not like this show?! I admit I watched this show, along with G Force (similar bird theme for whatever reason) when I was a kid.

Awesome piece man!

Incredible and solid work Tom!

Shane- I remember G-Force!, a.k.a Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets).

Imagi studios is doing a CGI animated feature for 2010:

Funnily enough the name G-Force is now being used for a Hamster spy movie coming out this summer...weird!

wow, this is a great piece. It definitely makes the Silverhawks look more dynamic than being the Thundercats rip off that it kinda was. great job

FANTASTIC!!!..
GUITAR SOLO IN SPACE....
ALSO HAD A SORAYAMA VIBE GOING ON WITH ALL THE POLISHED METALLIC BODIES...

My only crit would have been to make the copper kid a little smaller in stature....But, other then that its a pretty bitching composition...

Congratulations..
