Alright I admit it. Now that I've seen the movie. I'm a fan of Astro Boy. When I saw how Dr. Tenma was trying to bring his son back to life. It hit me deep. It reminded me of my dad and how I know he would have done the same for me. This piece right here was inspired by the very first episode. [link]
OMG! I can't believe that I'm actually the FIRST to actually post up AstroxCora fanart on DA or anywhere else, as far as I've seen! W00T!!! Anyhoo, the idea came to me out of nowhere, and even though I knew that I would epically fail, since I have an inablilty to get in my subjects' faces, I tried anyway, and THIS was the SURPRISING result! This is probably one of the SWEETEST pics that I have ever done, and I luffs it! :3
I'm getting the hang three things now: Romance, awesome lines, and close-ups! I've actually succeeded in making a good pic that contains some of my biggest weaknesses! YAY! And the shading acutally matches up this time! XD
This is basically just one of those random sad pics, and Cora is comforting Astro for some reason. If there has to be a reason, he's lonely, like in my story I'm writing. Cora's come to say, "I'm here; you're not alone, Astro."
BTW In case you can't tell, they are older. I'm not sure how much older, I just know they are. This is just one of those ever-so-popular scenarios where characters wear the same clothes for their entire lives. X3

~EDIT~ Here is the finished product---> ----------------------------------------------
I was bored in class today and I sketched this out because not only did I want to experiment with drawing Cobalt (not sure if I succeeded or failed ), but I also just wanted to try and draw something funny happening to Astro (here, I think I did pretty good :3).
Although I can't help but wonder if this QUITE fits Cobalt's personality. According to what I've read, he's clumsy, friendly, a little bit of an idiot, and basically the Astro Boy version of Goofy (or something like that). And I consider this something that a character with that kind of description would do. Jump on their little siblings and ask for a piggy-back ride. XD
BTW I know that Astro definitely has enough strength to hold Cobalt. He's just hunched over and out of balance because Cobalt just jumped on him or something and startled him.
The reason why I ask if I should digitize it is because part of me says no, and part says yes. I mean, something about this just seems... Off. It's probably something to do with Cobalt, but I can't quite place my finger on it.
Reasons why I think I should: 1. I LOVE HOW ASTRO'S FACE TURNED OUT! XD 2. I think the overall idea is pretty funny. :3 3. TO MAKE IT LOOK BETTER. Everything looks better with color. XD
Reasons why I think I shouldn't: 1. Something is just off. I don't know what it is, but something makes me not like this a ton. 2. Cobalt may be a bit too big? IDK I think I kinda took liberties with the concept of Astro's "older" brother. I prefer to base my Astro pics off of thirteen-year-old Astro, and I'm not too sure how much older Cobalt is supposed to appear. Here, I was going for about sixteen or seventeen maybe. I really don't know. :/ Although I'll go ahead and say here that I know that Astro looks kinda small, but I say it's because he's hunched over. 3. Another Cobalt issue. I'm just kinda worried that he might look TOO old. IDK
So please leave your thoughts on whether this should be digitized or not. Thank you!
P.S. I just felt like saying that I really like how I changed the little designs on Cobalt's boots so that he's not exactly a taller, goofier Astro. The hair adds to that too. :3

Yes I know its verrrrrrrrryyy late. But I really wanted to draw a "Happy Birthday Astro" picture. So here it is. I love Tezuka so much I put him in it as well. I'm in the Background if your wondering who that weirdo is. What can I say, I love all things Tezuka. He's like my total Idol and Astro is one of my favorite hero's (he could so kick Superman's butt)
