Astro Boy: Reluctant Hero by KicsterAsh Astro Boy: Reluctant Hero by KicsterAsh
Portfolio piece Number One: Astro Boy

This looks like it was easy to draw, but trust me, it weren't. :XD: The familiar characters such as Astro, Uran, Ken, Ochanomizu and Tenma were, but not any of the others. This was the first time I drew Mustachio -- he actually turned out okay -- the first and probably only time I'll ever draw Tawashi, and the first and VERY LAST time I draw either Pluto, Atlas or Blue Knight. No offence, but robots that have too many nuts and bolts are actually hard for me to draw! lol

But it was a fun experience. I got to really put my copic markers to good use and it turned out great.

Hopefully you enjoy it! :D

Characters (c) Tezuka

At least, in the end, Astro made a presidential speech to end the war against robots and the humans, too.
I vote Astro boy for President and still he's a human boy to us. 
GREAT JOG ON HIM! GO, GO, GO, ASTRO BOY! GO ROCKET! ;) (Wink) :) (Smile) Love

Although it's nowhere near as detailed, I'd appreciate it if you'd check out MY drawing of Astro!

Atom Vs. Atlas, Pluto and The Blue Knight... I see a small chance of Atom getting screwed, but he always gets revived, especially with Tenma around. :D But that kind of assumption is coming only from my knowledge of the original manga series. lol In the newer series releases and the movie, he seems a little less vulnerable, even though not too many things have changed too much about him over the 50 years hes been Japan's "first" anime and one of Japan's Ambassadors. Anyway... All that aside, this looks really awesome... I love how you included most of the characters who have stayed with us over these years. :)

You've improved so much it's unbelievable!! You were always so good anyways tho lmao. I have no idea how people do these things with freaking markers >.>
I should draw more, I could be better too if I actually worked for it, i hav probs being dedicated :P
In the bottom it doesn't even look like your style, I think that's so talented to be able to draw any sort of way :hug:

Thank you :hug: I worked extra hard on this one because it was for my portfolio. The robots were the worst to do.
Colouring with markers is hard, because they dry really fast, but the more you practice, the better you get at it. Trust me, if you ever do get the money to buy markers like that, you won't regret it (they're actually super expensive. 48 markers were about 350 dollars, but I was lucky and got them for 175.)

I needed an extra bad guy, so I used a dragon from in one of the comics. Turned out better than I expected :XD:

Oh, I finally got volume seven, so you can take it home with you when you come over if you want!
