Astro Boy by whitestarflower Astro Boy by whitestarflower
Astro Boy flying above the clouds.

This is based on Astro Boy from the 2009 movie. I also wrote Astro Boy at the bottom, and his name in Japanese, which is "atomu".

Materials Used : lead pencils, watercolour paints, black pens and black markers on Fabriano watercolour paper.

Astro Boy (c) Osamu Tezuka

Please write a comment on what you think. Constructive criticism is welcome. I feel that the shading on the face is not quite right.

Edit:
I changed the background and added a different one.

Yes, that's right. I think in the 2009 movie they just called him Atomu though.

"Astro Boy" in the 1960s was Japan's first animated TV series. That was the black and white version. I've seen a bit of it and its not that good quality animation, the 1980s one is better. But it was the first anime TV series.

Osamu Tezuka is quite famous in Japan. There is a manga museum about his work in Takarazuka. I want to go there some day.

Thanks for the comment!

Thankyou! Which Astro Boy cartoon do you like best? The 1980s series or the 2003 series?

I like the 1980s series the best.

It was based on the style used in the movie. Actually, it was based on a picture from a Japanese newspaper. Do you think I should do another one in the style of the 80s cartoon series or something like that?
