Taking the cub with her into battle she hesitated and turned from the fight in fear the cub would be hurt. When Hordak found the reason she failed him in battle he tore the cub from her arms and gave it to Shadow Weaver to show Catra what would happen if she failed him again. Shadow Weaver's magic twisted the cub into a monstrous lion which Hordak had sent to the Gladiator arena on Despondos. The lion named Claw-Demon by the spectators at the arena easily tore thru all of his opponents until he came face to face with a captured She-Ra. Fearing the cub she still loved would be hurt or worse, Catra disabled the locks on the gates allowing both She-Ra and Claw-Demon to escape. In the ensuing battle Claw-Demon made it's way to Catra's side and the two have been inseparable since.

    Awwww! I love that backstory! ^_^ But poor cub!

    I mean... All hail the mighty and illustrious Hordak!

    Avril: I think you should DEFINITELY enter your design as a legit entry, I think there's definitely some interesting ideas there, especially the emblem as saddle.

    I hope you've got your computer up and running as well, since you've also got a few days to the deadline if you want to scan it in so we can get a better look at it.

    Monsterfink: That's some hardcore stuff, and kind of makes sense with the 200x Hordak. He rules supremely.

    wow. great entries.

    i like especially the pictures from nightwing (human version), blksuperman2, zvedafire, monsterfink, ink f301 and wolfsfang.

    and here is my entry:





    base was battle cat. die eyes are "fake-plastic-diamonds", the saddle is from classic battlecat with a hordak head from 200x hordaks armor. rest is sculpey.

    i never would have guessed that clawdeen would inspire so many cool entries--great work everyone! here's mine:



    First of all, no, this is not a picture of the Pink Panther and Snagglepuss.

    There has been a lot of debate about Clawdeen's gender, and my solution to the gender question was to make the toy and animation versions of Clawdeen into separate characters. The toy version, retaining the name Clawdeen and the specified female gender, gains an armored helm--I leave it to the reader's imagination whether the plume of hair is Clawdeen's mane, or simply a part of the helm. The cartoon version becomes Clawdius, Clawdeen's mate. I swiped the name from Lion-O's dad.

    I did my best to make Clawdeen feminine without resorting to the heavy-handed shorthand that the original toy suffered from (eyeshadow, long eyelashes). With Clawdius, I was striving for a groomed, submissive feel, to contrast the feral and somewhat crazed look of Manticore. Considering I had the handicap of working with almost nothing but variations of the color pink, I'm pretty happy with how the colors turned out.

    Well here's my version of the pink pussycat. Never liked the old toy, but I loved her in that one ep of the show & the ladybird comics. With all these amazing designs I know my chances are slim, but hey I'm not going to miss out on this one. Anyway, not much change on the original design, but i still hope you like it.

    Bootleg: Clever stuff, solving the gender-problem by splitting the character into two extremes.

    My one nag would perhaps be that Clawdius looks a bit bland in comparison, especially since he doesn't have a saddle.

    And now... I'm gonna' go and remind an artist about the deadline. Sure hope he's had time to complete his entry.

    You have until midnight. After that, we have to talk, and maybe if there's many stragglers we'll see what happens.

    super-munkyboy: that wasn't my intent, but i guess i can live with that!

    2-bad:: nice work--i really like the new techniques you're incorporating here.

    Predabot: thank you! i was purposely keeping clawdius plain--i liked nightwing's idea about the female-dominated lions on etheria, so i was thinking clawdius stays home and tends the children, while clawdeen gets armored up and goes off to war.

    gatchagrey: thanks my friend, you're too kind. i'll try not to keep you waiting too long on my fan characters thread!

    Hey Ya'll!

    Awesome work all around!
    I'm loving the diversity of concepts and styles.

    Alas - I'm finally back on board with the re-design challenges!
    Unfortunately I only had time enough to slap some sloppy color onto my sketch...
    but I'll be continuing to develop my concept and post some of my other Clawdeen sketches later.

    I'll also return to post my thoughts on each of the excellent submissions you all have made.









    EDIT -

    Here's the original sketch:


    and a flat colored sketch:


    I prefer these two to the more involved colored version above - which was just too quick and dirty. I'll take the time to color it properly down the line.

    Cool. I'm not too sure if my design is too much of a departure from Clawdeen. It'd be good to have more input on it.

    i really like the idea "clawdeen and clawdius". because that explains why clawdeen got a male mane.

    Wow, you managed to make this character actually cool looking! Nice work man!

    Can folks please pay more attention to the image quoting. If the image you are reffering to is on the same page, there's little point on showing it again and slowing the site down. Quote away but please try remember to remove the "[/img]" and the end of the image link you are quoting!
