Imagine having sleepless nights. It's going to be impossibly lonely and empty. This is what Alphonse's soul is feeling every night. I hope you guys like it! I wanna try practice drawing Alphonse when he's young. I don't want to draw Alphonse naked, so I drew the alchemy tattoo, the blood seal and the loincloth for his soul as well.
I seriously hope I did not piss off any FMA fans out there. I got this idea in a dream. Anyone ever wondered what would've happen if the Elric Brother's appearance were switched? Just a back story: Al's body was dragged into the Gate. Ed transmuted his soul to the suit of armour and sacrificed his own body to bring back Alphonse. But since Ed already lost a leg to the Gate and a soul is worth an arm, Al came back without an arm and a leg. Since Ed is the soul in the armour, I doubt anyone would ever make the mistake of who's the Fullmetal Alchemist! I really hope I didn't piss any fans off
This was my first impression (and among many people who did not know Al was an empty suit of armour) on Al when I watched FMA. The first episode I watched never showed Alphonse was an empty suit of armour. So, with flashbacks of young Al and the armour, I thought Al was a big guy with a very young voice. Hope you guys like it! Oh and another thing, I was planning to draw some sort of high-tech suit underneath but I was too lazy to draw it, so I decided to just draw a torn sleeve of the high-tech suit instead.
Does this make anyone depressed? It was not my intention. Right after I finished, when I looked at it, it immediately made me feel blue. It's not my best drawing even though it felt as if I had given my best. I originally planned to draw Al with Iron Man HUD stuffs and effects but threw the idea away. I wanted to stick with the original FMA story for a while rather than adding original ideas to it.
Edward Elric in "Kick Your Ass" mode. It's my first time drawing Edward Elric. Hope you guys like it! I have this inspiration from an Iron Man teaser poster back in 2008. I have no idea why am I even relating Iron Man with Fullmetal Alchemist at all.
Because I love him and everything about FMA and I would have drawn Ed too but I really wanted Al on his own just for this shot. *breathe* (For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about go watch/read Fullmetal Alchemist, like, yesterday because you're missing out on epic feels) Yes I'm now also a FMA fangirl.
I've never drawn shiny steel before so colouring this was quite a challenge - and I know it's not perfect but I tried. Hope others like it as much as I do
