silverhawks commission by strongstuff silverhawks commission by strongstuff
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.

Awesome, but only one complaint.  Bluegrass didn't have wings.   He had to pilot the Miraj.

Cool commission.

Just like T-cats, I never had the toys but I picked up some of the comics as a teen.

My friends and I always tuned in every afternoon, when we could.

Beautiful design, man.

One of the best cartoon shows ever!
theFranchize Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010
don't know how I never saw this before, but it is off the hook. I loved this show, but it was only on for a season or 2. maybe that's why u didn't really get into it
Charley77 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome series. Awesome poster! Thanks for sharing this!

GodStrife Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2009
Great work!! Great cartoon!!

I love Bluegrass. :)
FrankORourke Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2009  Professional General Artist
Nice job on this. although, Bluegrass doesn't have wings which is why he flies the MIRAGE. :)

I love this interesting style too.
Superman-1 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
The SilverHawks seem much more angelic with their wings like that, especially Bluegrass. A masterpiece all around.
thelearningcurv Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2009
this is definitely a cartoon they could make into a movie!

Certainly didn't have the same 'impact' as Thundercats did - but was still fun to watch :D You've certainly done them justice sir! :clap:

Awesome!!! This was one of my favorite shows as a kid.
lowman-x Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009   General Artist
I used to love this show! Mind you, when I was growing up we didn't get TV reception so I could only ever hire the same 2 videos from the video store... :P

Whenever I mention Silverhawks all I ever get are people looking at me as if I'm weird...
AprilONeil1984 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
I love the Silverhawks!
Unit-1978 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
Holy crap so awesome. I watched it religiously as a child unfortunately as you said not many people remember it among the sea of great 80's cartoons. I think this stands as one of the tops. Great stuff.
absolute-pagey Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
your style just rocks
ChiNoble Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
I love this piece, it really captures those 80's cartoons well. Great composition of all the characters. I kind of missed this one when i was a kid too, i mostly just remember the bit in the opening with the cowboy playing a guitar solo in an opentop space ship and not gettin sucked into space...?
Bey-Fenn Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very nice...also great to see you breaking away from profile veiws. Awesome stuff.

awww man! this silverhawk piece is amazing!!!
Slothboy3000 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
You've just posed the question I ask every time I hear that theme tune/ The 'real' part is some bad lyric writing right there! =P
Great rendition of them though!
GeorgeD Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, I loved that show! Great pic ;)

Silverhawks!! this brings back memories, now i want to see a Jayce & The Wheeled Warriors piece lol
KevMcNamara Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
great as always
CarlPearce Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009  Professional
Good job on the artwork though, bro. As always.

But I've never even heard of this cartoon. Sorry, but I can't get excited about those character designs. I mean, what the hell is with the Michael Jackson glove style? And the one with the cowboy hat and guitar?!? Not exactly aerodynamic...

And the theme... Urgh. Sounds like a pants cartoon.

Oh god... I just you-tubed it.... Urgh. Your image is tonnes better than the original poop!
Nether83 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009
Very nice. There just something so cool about your style that is very appealing.

Gotta love those 80's cartoons. They don't make them like they used to anymore.
RODCOM1000 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009  Professional General Artist
Wow, I've got to commission on like this for my OC's!
This came out Awesome!
Neumatic Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Fantastic work of course, but what an odd subject choice for this style. The Silverhawks were very high tech, it never would have occurred to me they could be done in this style, and so well!
Torogoz Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009  Professional Artist
HAHA! great work. love the style!!
Yulian-Ardhi Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009   Digital Artist
