Knights of the Magical Light by stratosmacca Knights of the Magical Light by stratosmacca
I've been waiting to show this for a while now. This is the Visionaries pin-up I drew for the second issue of cereal:geek magazine (which is now available for purchase!), and it's something I'm pretty proud of.

Visionaries remains one of my favorite cartoon series of the 1980s. And that's saying a lot, being that it only lasted 13 episodes, and most series aren't able to make much of an impact on me unless they go 65+ eps to tell their stories and flesh out their characters. The voice acting, animation and storylines of Visionaries were all brilliant, and I highly recommend checking it out if you ever get a chance.

This piece was definitely a labor of love-- it went through several different colorists until we found the right combination to make things work. In the end, colors were done by :icontmvgabel:, me and :iconbustatoons:.

Incidentally, my husband :iconrhannah:, has written the accompanying article for this pin-up. Pick up a copy and check it out!

That would be Darkstorm. Not a snail though, a Mollusk which wasn't that puny at all, the thing could throw fireballs!

But a snail is a mollusk. He could have had an octopus, but no!

I happen to saw it in the 90s, back then I didn't have a clue why they stopped it after airing for a few months [ it turns it they produced only 13 episodes ]. Awesome work, there is not much fan art for 'Visionaries' here coz not many people know about it.

I can still recite the rhymes used to activate the staffs of power. Is that wrong?

Man, I love Visionaries! It was really the only 80s cartoon that I became obsessed with as a kid. I had all of the different power staff rhymes memorized and my friends and I used run around the playground pretending to turn into animals and fighting Darkling Lords. :)

Oh man I miss Visionaries. When I got older and I realized I lost most of the toys I had of them I get sad some times because of it. :)

I wait for the day someone brings it all out on DVD... :D

Fabulous! I don't know the series or the characters, but I love "descriptive/inclusive" pieces like this, regardless! It's a wonderful collaboration (I'm assuming you did the pencils/inks?), and you're all to be commended! Most excellent! :clap:
