This Dad Turns His Sons’ Artwork Into Awesome Anime Characters

Dads can make everything better. Just like this dad for instance who turns his sons’ drawings into awesome anime characters. So, Thomas Romain is a French animator who is currently living in Tokyo, Japan. Since 2001, he has been working in Japanese manga (comics) and anime production and some of his most notable works include Aria, Basquash, Symphogear, Space Dandy and Cannon Busters.

But on social media, Thomas is popularly known as the guy who draws amazing characters based on his two son’s drawings. As you can see from the photos, his sons Ryunosuke and Itsuki are good at drawing to begin with. So, it’s easy to see that these kids have a great potential to become professional animators in the future, just like their dad. Impressed by his sons’ drawings, Thomas redraws the characters and turns them into impressive watercolor illustrations that look like they came straight out of an anime show.

Using his sons’ original character design, he then polishes each character and adds in some crucial details to complete the illustration. His sons would come up with cool character concepts and he would later give life to their ideas. He and his sons would also give names to the characters they have created and it’s as if every character has their own interesting story to tell.
