As always based upon actual AIM conversations, then altered a little by my twisted little mind.
Sorry this one isn't as funny as the others, but that's what happens when your just basing things off of little tid bits of conversation.
I kept wanting to add even more details to this, and photoshop it even, I just knew I had other things I had to work on and the time that would take would very likly kill me x_x. (I've gotta to be nuts)
Vikki copyrighted to ... umm herself, what do you think? ><
And cause he wanted it, Cailen copyrighted to also himself
Done in .7 mechanical pencils, and text/panels added with photoshop.
So I was finally able to finish coloring piece. Really annoyed by how long it took, yet I didn't get nearly as much as I wish I could have, and to invest anymore time in a already somewhat flawed project was seeming kinda pointless. Don't get me wrong though, just because I'm not a 100% satisfied with this picture does not mean in anyway I down right despise that. If that were the case I doubt I would even be submitting this for you guys to view then Its just I'm not happy with EVERYTHING in here.
I have to say if your ever thinking of drawing Ed, your in for a real headache. Nothing ever seems to match up correctly when trying to replicate him, truly his visage is a reflection of the creator's style.
This is bristol board, penciled with .7 mechanical pencils, inked with 01, 03, 08 Microns, colored in Photoshop CS
I spent a while today messing around with different ways of drawing him. I didn't really like how the original 'Jenanakin' looked, face-wise. I also wanted to do a more serious pic of him.
In RPs, my Anakin aspires to try to master both sides of the Force at once, hoping to eventually bring himself to a perfect balance where he's pretty much as at one with the Force as you can be without, like, dying.
So, I thought that opposite-colored sabers and opposite-tinted eyes would be a pretty cool look to signify that 'stage.'
In this stage, he'd have complete control over his emotions, but he'd still use them as part of his focus. He allows the Light Side to flow through and guide him while augmenting it perfectly with his own Dark Side inner power and emotions. It's pretty awesome to imagine, really. XD
...and yes, he's wearing a closed AOTFW trenchcoat and not some huge dramatic cloak. Sue me. I was going to have the trench open and a little more flowy at first but the positioning of his arms made that difficult. Plus, a cloak flowing off to one side like they usually do would kinda disrupt the 'symmetry' of the whole thing.
I had lots of freetime on Sunday, so I ended up sketching up my character Lena (that's the girl who hangs with Fooly) There's lots of concept work in here, that will be reflected back in the comic, but I won't be going into any of it.
I'm really glad how far my pencil skills are coming these days, I was able to do ALL this without any ink at all. I'm hoping I will never need to use ink again if I can keep this up
The image is pleasing overall, but I dunno about the eyes, I'm always conflicted on choosing either the traditional large round eyes found in anime, or going for some more realistic eye designs as you should may have seen in some of my other works.
I really wanted to extend more on the background, but my creativity ran out there, which is why it came out so incomplete.
I'm heading off to iCon tommorow, where Vic Mignogna, the voice actor of Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, is going to be as a guest. I've met him once at Otakon last year, and have maintained some contact with him and Caitlin Glass, the VA of Winry, since the convention, and since gave Vic a printout of this FMA fanart during Otakon, I figured I should show my appreciation as well :3 So yes, in case you couldn't tell at this point, that's Vic (Edward), Caitlin (Winry) and of course the lovable Aaron Dismuke (Alphonse). These three are just a few of the many voice actors that make me appreciate not only the dub of Fullmetal Alchemist, but english dubs in general, not to mention the two I've met before are some of the nicest people I've ever met. They really know how to show their love for the fanbase and the animes they work on, so I felt like this would be a good way to give some thanks, even if there are SO many other VAs that are big favorites of mine. In fact, I might make more of these

okay, before ANYONE says anything.......this joke goes ENTIRELY to
when i was developing this storyline, she suggested this joke and i have been dying to work it in
It comes from the fact that whenever the high-pitched Juni begins laughing HARD.....she begins SQEAKING
I swear to you now........SQUEAKING
Cailen is the master of the squeak
Yah, based off an old image I saw do a while back >>>[link] . These could almost become a semi-regular thing. Any and all events I find I can poke fun at between the people of Fireball [link] will go to these little comics. But considering the jokes and the time I spend on other projects, it'll have to remain like these sketchy litttle things. (less it should get some sorta fan base or something)
