Atom from Urasawa's manga Pluto, based on the story and characters of Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy! Another pick from the sptiballin' comics blog, this time by Meaghan Carter.
Atom is not a character I would have ever chosen to illustrate on my own. Pluto had a very personal and emotional effect on me and is one of my favourite comics, and I could never really show exactly what the story or Atom in particular meant to me in a singular image. Anything I can imagine just sort of falls short of what I would like to convey. Oh well, hope this will do :P
