Prime Rose by will-Ruzicka Prime Rose by will-Ruzicka
I figured I should post something new to this new account, and not just re-posts from my old account. So what I have here is an old piece that was started some time ago at work. It's sort of languished on my hard drive in an ALLLLmost finished state, and I figured I could put in a couple hours tonight to finish it off.

It's not quite where I originally wanted it to be, but this is all I'm doin'.

Prime Rose is a character created by Osamu Tezuka, the creator of Astro Boy. I saw this character in the GBA Astro Boy game that Treasure did and I thought she was an interesting and very 60's kind of character. I had to draw her.

Enjoy.

I found it on youtube, but I've not had time to sit and watch it. I'm also unclear if the comics I've seen covers for are straight adaptations of this anime, or if it's another instance of Tezuka casting an existing character in a new role as he did so often.

I actually first learned of the character through playing the GBA Astro Boy game (which is an incredibly good game)

I haven't read the manga so I'm unsure. I think it's a straight adaption from what I've heard from others.

me too. And yes, it's the best Astro Boy game ever and one of the best GBA games

Thanks. I love this character, but I was disappointed in the finished product myself. ^^;;
I'm glad you like it though! I'm just too hard on myself, probably.

I love it.

I especially love it because it's art of a Tezuka character that is rare to find in fan art. You sir, win for that alone. But other than that, this still looks very impressive and professional.

Thanks. Of course, not two days later, someone at work shows me this artist in Japan who had posted fan art of her too. [link]
