Astro: Colored Pencil Practice by Dragara Astro: Colored Pencil Practice by Dragara
I wanted to break out my colored pencils for some good old-fashioned coloring, but I had nothing to color, so I just printed out my Astro Boy lineart and colored that. And I must say that I'm impressed with myself!

I haven't colored with colored pencils in AGES. For some reason, I really like how the boots turned out. XD Unfortunately, everything turned out good except for his hair. His hair's just all "BLEAGH"... TT_TT

And ignore the random blue stuff. I thought it looked too plain just white, and I didn't want to do this HUGE time-consuming background, so I just decided to do a little blue fade around him. And it sucks, but not as much as the hair.

Astro Boy (C) Osamu Tezuka

Yeah, she was joking saying that he looked too muscley. I drew more detail than is within the Astro Boy-style, and thus, did more musculature detail. But hey, that's how I roll. X3

I actually like the blue glow around him. And I like his boots.

I really like his boots. I thought it was fun to add detials and stuff to make them look more mechanical. =D

I'm trying to draw my Mobian form Transformers. But I think I won't get as good as you.

Aww, thanks! :hug: I can't draw big mechas and stuff like that, though. If I tried to draw anything Transformers-related, it would be an :iconepic-failplz:.

Try drawing them in another style. Like in a Mobian form or make them cats. That's what other people do.

Even so, I have hardly any idea what the Transformers look like exactly, so I would need a reference if I was going to draw any of them, and everything would probably turn out looking very strange. That happens with just about everything I do. TT_TT

Just keep trying. Don't let anything let you down. Just because you'll make it look strange, doesn't mean you can't give it a go.


Besides, I know something the might be a good reference for you to get an idea of them. For their Sonic style.

Yeah, if I ever get free time and a reference, I may draw one of them. IDK
