While some of us can barely draw a stick figure, Tokyo-based French animator Thomas Romain has teamed up with his two sons to come up with original characters based on their drawings.
Romain’s sons really take after him as they love to sketch from their imagination. Dad then uses his professional skills as an anime artist to turn their drawings into characters from out of this world.
The creations from the “Father and Sons Design Workshop,” as Romain calls the collaboration, have since gone viral after photos of the character designs were shared on Twitter, racking up thousands of retweets and likes.
It all started on Christmas Day, when Romain’s eldest son handed him a drawing of a monocular alien, which dad added more details to make it bigger and fuller, according to RocketNews24.
Other original designs by Romain’s sons include a steampunk doctor, a blade-wielding magic knight and a cyborg reminiscent of Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Each drawing is posted to Romain’s Twitter, accompanied by a caption that gives credit to his two sons as the original designer.

Romain has also worked on a range of anime shows, such as “Space Dandy,” “Senki Zessho Symphogear,” “Aria” and “Basquash!”
