Feb Draw a Day 02 by will-Ruzicka Feb Draw a Day 02 by will-Ruzicka
Number 2 of the February Draw a Day. I absolutely loved Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors... I'd love to work on a reboot of this show... but the opening song would have to be the same 80's glam rock.

Anyway, this is the plant girl Flora and the drill car she used... it reminds me of Sophia III from Blaster Master.

EDIT: Reformatted the aspect ratio to a 16:9 storyboard template... which I've done to all my February drawings. This was the hardest since I started with a portrait ratio before... as a result, I cut off her feet. Sorry foot fetishist. 9_9

... back in time, I had a crush on her... :ashamed:

Yes, I agree! This story really need a reboot! A serious one with better stories and stronger enemies!
(In the original show, Monster Minds troopers were really idiots... too many battles were solved in a too easy way because the Lightining Force was TOO much strong! And fighting a weak enemy is not fun at all:( )

I hope that they keep Flora's sexyness if they do a reboot :D

Totally agree about a reboot. Maybe someday I'll put together a pitch for it. lol. (don't hold me to that!)

And I agree, I hate stupid enemies in anything. I think it's better when the heroes have to really work for their successes.

I know this means there's something wrong with me, but there was something about Flora that I found strangely compelling. :D

As a kid I remember thinking she was an interesting character. She looked like the youngest, but acted more mature than some of the guys a lot of the times. That and I was always confused about if she could talk to plants, or was made of a plants or what?

Flora was a plant-creature, created in the same way (by Audric's technology/magic) as the Monster Minds (the villains).

Yeah, I think I remember that now. I recently bought the DVD pack (Though I think it might be only half the series?) Anyway, it was a fun time delving into my childhood, but I didn't re-watch it all.

One of J Michael Straczynski's early writing gigs. He transposed several elements from this show into B5, including a reworked Lightning League pledge which became the Grey Council pledge... Compare them, it's wild!

Loved this show, had all the toy vehicles collected. Sadly I lost them all over time :(

I forget where I heard about Joe's involvement in this show, but it was something I was aware of. On GI Joe Renegades I worked with the man who storyboarded the opening sequence to this show.

I never had any of the toys, but I did want that drill one. If I ever have time, I think I would like to try my hand at redesigning this show. It was very trippy and I think has a lot of potential for a remake.

Thanks! That cartoon was fun... very quirky, too. I would love it if they ever revived it.

I'd watch it if they could convince Joe Straczynski to return to write it!

It must happen. A reboot of that series. The world CAN'T end without it at least being in any sort of first phase or something.

Their opening was awesome! I remember watching this as a kid and even built a crappy model of Jaycee's vehicle with Legos XD

that was the best thing about legos, you could build replicas of whatever toy you wanted, crappy ones of course, but when you were a kid you didn't mind.

I wonder if you'll do exosquad later on =P

yeah... I had hand me down legos from my cousins, so there were a lot of missing bricks. I could only make real basic cars.

Awesome! You know, sometimes I get caught up on youtube just watching through loads of 80's and early 90's cartoon intros. I can spend hours on there :O

I know!! I was doing that as I drew this one. Oh... another one I've really got into but never saw the show is Ulysses 31 or something like that? Oh... so corny, but great.

I did scrub through the first episode on youtube once to get the gist of it. During the battle sequences they would sample Star Wars music, and just change a couple bars here and there.

I wish I had a nice high quality extended version to load up on my iPod. But even the best recordings on youtube sound tinny to me.

If you're interested with a somewhat higher quality than youtube, Shuky Levy's website hosts it, apparently for free. The narrator at the start is different though...

Ah, did he fix the links? I was there about a year ago, and a lot of the links were broken. Got things like Heathcliff's theme off there, though. XD
