Red Streak by glance-reviver Red Streak by glance-reviver
I like that flash of red that happens whenever Ed takes his coat off, so I wanted to do it, but more dream-like with just a streak. I probably shouldn't enjoy it as much as I do considering he's a minor, but seriously. That little boy is ripped. And he's got all kinds of kung-fu an shit.

Anyway...

I have wanted to do a FMA fan art for a long time. I hate drawing Alphonse every time I try to draw him. That's sad, because Al is my favorite character and I love him.

I tried doing this style I've been practicing in a full image (not just face shots) to see what would happen, and it's hard. I need to study more. Alphonse was especially difficult given the fact he is all mechanical, and that is hard for me to express without linear art. But I think if I keep practicing in this style, it'll start to come more naturally.

Edward and Alphonse from Full Metal Alchemist.

Something has been bothering me ever since I saw this picture, something with Alphonse. And then I realized....... HE'S MISSING HIS HAIR. XD

I still love it though, the use of color for a simplistic yet recognizable Alphonse is awesome. =D

OH RIGHT he has that ponytail thing that I forgot about.

I'll edit it into the pic when I have some time, haha...

Honestly it's not that noticeable, only reason I even noticed is because I have no life and could afford to stare at the picture for a long time. It does look lovely though! Simple yet effective.

I love the yellow sidelighting, it really gives it a dramatic high-contrast look. The red streak is a great idea too and really draws your eye to it. :D

I love how you drew Ed's automail, the fingers look really spindly. Also, your Alphonse is awesome, you definitely did him justice. He's my favourite character too.:hug:
