...And Tobio's dog Jump.
She tries to to teach Jump to do tricks, but they are too difficult, almost absurd. And she's too rude with him. But, then, when she faces the concrete possibility of losing him, she finds she cares about him.

Yeah, I liked Uran in the 1980s series too; she was so naughty, getting Astro in trouble all the time. Did you ever see her in the 1960s version?

No, I've never watched a full episode of the 1960s version. I watched part of an episode on youtube once, but it didn't appeal to me.

This is Uran's first appearance on the 1960s series. It actually combines two stories, and "Uran the Tomboy" and "Uran's Twin":

Warning: the mad scientist guy who creates Uran's double is even creepier in this episode than in the 1980s version.

Thanks for the link. She calls herself Astrogirl in the black and white series. I don't like the voices much though, they sound very childish. They are a lot different from the voices in the 1980s series.

I liked the 80s Uran, but her 2003 version is a lot better and more innocent. Cute drawing, nevertless^^

Thanks for the comment. I like the 80s series of Astro Boy as well. This was based on the 80s series. In the screenshot I based it on, I think she was jumping. I think that they show her underwear because its cute and she wears a short dress. She is a little kid. So, I don't think its supposed to be in a sexual way, just in a cute way. In most episodes of the 80s series, Uran's dress is so short that you can see her underwear.

Wow! Whitestarflower, this is beautiful!

Besides it being of one of my favorite characters made by Osamu Tezuka, this is heavily enriched by your skill with the media you used. I had no idea one could make such a vibrant picture with mere watercolor... yet, here I sit, staring at such a masterpiece.

As for Uran herself, as well as Jump, you've caught them quite well. I'm especially fond of how you replicated Uran's face... particularly her eyes.

That said, though, I'd personally recommend making Uran's legs and feet a whee bit less two-dimensional. It appears to me as if Uran's right leg is a bit too thick, and it looks like her right foot is pointing inward, toward her left heel.

That first problem's probably a no-brainer. For the latter, I'd advise thinking of her legs as triangular prisms, with the corners being her feet.

Still, despite those minor setbacks, AWESOME JOB!!! It's definitely going into my favorites. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the comment! The movie finished here in Australia in about beginning of November. It wasn't out for long. I have been asking at a few places (Borders, Kinokuniya) about when the movie is coming out on DVD. They didn't know but they said probably February.

I also wrote an email to Imagi entertainment in December last year. the reply I got was "We are still working on the DVD. There will be an announcement in January about when it will be released. It will probably be released in Spring next year." By Spring, I guess that means Northern Hemisphere Spring- as in March.

Very nice job! I'm currently trying to learn to work with acrylics, but it's not going too well. I suck. LOL

I'm going to take a wild guess at who the dog is, since I've never seen any of the original series, but I've read about them... Is it Jump?
Reply
:iconwhitestarflower:
whitestarflower Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2009
Yes, the dog is called Jump. This picture is partly based on a screenshot from the 80s series and I made up some of it. I have some of the DVDs of the 80s series at home. If you want to watch any of the series I would recommend that you watch the 80s series because it is a lot better than what I've seen of the 2003 series. You can order it from Madman entertainment: [link]
There might be a similar American site, but I don't know, because I live in Australia.

The dog, Jump is replaced in the movie by the character, Oron the robot. In the 80s series, Jump was Toby's dog. Later when Astro was created, Dr Tenma brought him home, and Jump didn't recognise him as Toby, becase Astro was a robot. However, over time, Jump began to like Astro and lived with Astro and his robot family (parents and sister Uran who were created after Astro).

I have used acrylics before, but I prefer watercolour paints now.

Thankyou for the comment! :hug:

Huh. I thought he was replaced by Trashcan, kinda, but I guess that's just because I'm basically an Astro Boy n00b. X3

whitestarflower Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2009
Maybe he was kind of replaced by Trashcan. I was just thinking of the first episode of the 80s series (which I have on DVD), when Dr Tenma takes Astro home. Then Jump the dog, doesn't recognise him as Toby. But other aspects of Jump the dog are similar to Trashcan. However, I think Oron the robot fits in with the storyline of the movie better than Jump the dog.
