Astro's Two Dads by KicsterAsh Astro's Two Dads by KicsterAsh
Astro's the only boy (or robot, in this case) who's got two fathers, both scientists.

I recently just started to LOVE drawing Dr. Tenma. I love the way Tezuka designed his characters.

Astro just finished school and Elefun, who had a day off, went to pick him up. It was one of the rare days that Tenma was working at the Ministry of Science (during this point in my stories, Tenma only worked "undercover" for the Ministry because a lot of people were still worried that he would lose his mind again). So Elefun gave Astro a piggy back ride to the Ministry, and just as Tenma was finishing his work, Astro greeted him in his cheerful manner.

I used my markers for this, though the scanner took most of the beauty and colors out of it. Man, that sucks.

My dad liked the fact that Tenma was wearing a purple vest. I think purple suits him for some reason.

This was the first picture I decided to try putting simple highlights in the hair and on Astro's boots. Turned out okay, I guess.

Big feet. Big eyes. Yeah, you should know me by now! Ha ha!

Saw the movie. Loved it, although I didn't like Tenma's design, nor the voice. Nicholas Cage.... a definite NO-NO. BAD!!! I wanted Tenma's voice to be deeper! Not to mention Nicholas Cage totally sucked acting at the greiving part, where Tenma was kneeling down over the place where Tobio disappeared... Though it was sad, it didn't feel sad enough. It felt sadder when Tenma called Elefun later on to say that Astro just wasn't Toby.

Tobio was... what's the word... dissintegrated? Or just got sucked into the robot? Different death, not the car crash. But even though a car accident is more gruesome, I thought that getting blown to oblivion by a rampaging robot was even WORSE. Who would want to see their kid get killed like THAT????

Not to mention they should have given Dr. Elefun a bigger role in the movie.

Anyway, enjoy the pic! :D

Wow I love it, I just like your drawing details a lot

In my fan-fic on AstroBoy "The Third LifeForm", Spooky has referred to Dr. TenMa as Dr. Tin Man, and, if that wasn't bad enough, he has addressed Dr. Elefun -or Dr. Ochanomizu- as Dr. Occasional, Dr. Occupation and even Dr. Occidental ! I did follow Osama Tezuki's origin story for AstroBoy.

I also make oblique references to kappas and to Jissouseki (created by a rival outfit to the one where AstroBoy was designed and built, the Asheraku or whatever name that mother goddess of Japan was).

The child seems to have popped out from Elefun's back as a surprise for Tenma. He succeed in it!
