Cobalt Images!

Postby AprilSeven » 6 years ago

I've decided to start a thread for those of us who truly appreciate the ORIGINAL Astro (no, wait . . . that's just one of his origin stories . . .)

Well, no matter how you subscribe to his creation/purpose/demise - here is a place to upload great screen caps and whatever else you might think of that we'd Cobalt/Jetto fans would appreciate!

I'll start with two from Episode 173 Robotty

I guess you've figured out how to clip images from the DVD with VLC.
Gimp can make GIFs and motion JPGs. I guess photoshop can also.

I've linked this before.....

Yes there is a windows version, probably for Mac too. But you probably have photoshop, which should be a superset of the Gimp.

Yay! The first one has Cobalt and Chi-tan!

Although, I hate how they made his face all tall and stretched-looking in the anime. The anime also gave him that different hairline and snub-nose, though, as well as more distinct spikes, which does help considerably when it comes to distinguishing him from Atom.

I have waited for a thread like this for a long time. This is going to be adorable. ;w; I'm definitely going to have to dig in my collection for some stuff to contribute~

Frankly I'm just glad he looks different enough from Astro in the anime regardless of his occasionally wonky face, because it was kind of a pain training myself to notice the differences between them in the manga. >_<

In one volume, in that "Youth Gas" story where they fought, I literally could not tell who was who for most of the panels. Even if those panels were still in full color, I probably couldn't tell anyway.

I didn't really have a problem with that one... Up until they started fighting. Then I had no idea who was doing what. ._.;

That was what I meant. :d oh: I mean, you'd think he would've made them at least a little bit more different, instead of poor Cobalt being a slightly derpy twin. Not that twin status is a bad thing; but without color (and, hell, even with color, considering he didn't bother to change Cobalt's palette at all), it's really and truly difficult to tell the difference.

Despite the confusion that story caused...

Cobalt is absolutely adorable in a B-School uniform and no one can tell me otherwise. (And that is totally how you smoothly incorporate an image to contribute to the image thread, don'cha know </sarcasm>)

But you know, I wouldn't have minded the whole twin thing if they'd played around with it a bit more. It'd be fun to see Cobalt dragged into doing a thing because he's being mistaken for Astro.
