Astro Boy - Movie Style

Astro Boy - Movie Style

Finished Winter 2010, watercolor & colored pencil.

A painting of the world famous anime character Astro Boy as he appears in the Astro Boy Movie.

This was an example I did as part of a painting class I taught. I let my students pick the color of the background. Did my best to add a lot of richness to the colors for a nice artistic look.

You wouldn't think so from looking at him, but Astro is actually a very hard character to draw. It takes some precision to get it right.

Hey, I like the movie!
