atom tetsuwan

I haven’t drawn cartoony stuff in a while….. it’s pretty fun to do between other projects, so have some more Boys. I overthought his arm rockets because how his hands just vanish bothers me in canon.

Atom is pretty cute for a quantum computer inside an absurdly overpowered weapon with a nuclear fusion battery that could power a country, and also the quantum computer has PTSD

My regular art style is like, semi-realistic…ish and Astro looks super off-putting when drawn as anything other than hyperstylized. I guess it’s like trying to draw Sonic the Hedgehog or Mickey Mouse with greater realism, you’d have to change so much of the design to make it appealing that you might as well make a new one

I’ve been a bit busy for most of the April Challenge but there was no way I was going to miss out today’s star- my favorite dead child of Astro Boy, Tobio!

Heavily inspired by the MV for Atom the Beginning’s OP(Because Human and Robot Counterpart seems to be a thing there too huh) and I don’t think I’ve ever used so much ctrlc+ctrlv in my life XDD

I didn’t feel like adding the spiky blue crown thing on Atom’s neck so I settled on somewhat of a serial code. Really, it’s just his model name(from the 60′s anime) and his birthday.
