PLEASE FULL VIEW!!! Otherwise you can’t read the jacket very well!! ^-^ (Though I did write what it says on the bottom of this.) This was my second entry for a contest on another site. The first, ([link]) I posted up before and was very well received in such a short time (on the popular list!!!) so I wanted to put this one up as well. This is my first (and only so far! -.-) FMA colored multi-paneled piece, so it’s rather special to me! X)

Once the first entry ([link]) was finished with a few days to go until the deadline, the idea for this one popped up in my head. I thought it was too cute to ignore so I did it and submitted it with literally minutes to spare for the deadline, I was so sure it wasn’t going to make it!! -.- It did, and though I didn’t win, it’s still my most popular entry on the site!! ^,^

In fact, there was only one (very deserving) winner but if it was judged based on popularity and ranking alone, I would've gotten 2nd or 3rd out of about 180 entries, which shocked and surprised me!! 0.0

I’m still very happy with it, however, it’s changed a lot from the original entry. After remembering I never submitted it here, I decided to jazz it up a bit. At first, that meant just fixing the colors and some stray marks, but ended up changing all the color values, practically redrawing the whole thing (I found lots wrong w/ the faces! And had to smooth the outlines!)! I also added a background to each panel, where as before it was just white!

It looks so much better now, so I’m glad I did so, but it took 9 times as long as the original to fix it!!! X0 The original had the back of Ed’s jacket showing the sites’ logo for a book they were selling, and I figured I could’ve added the DA symbol for this site, but decided to just make a general jacket back. I did the same for the first contest entry (LINK), where Ed’s bump originally had that logo, and now for this site is just a bump. As usual, hand drawn, scanned in, fixed and colored in Photoshop.

I hope this is just as liked as the first piece and appreciate any and all comments and favs! ^,^




What Ed’s jacket says:

HEY KIDS!!! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE THIS SHORT WHEN YOU GROW UP, THEN DRINK MILK TO HELP YOU GROW!!!!

Hey, guess what two words go well together in a sentence? 

"Roy, miniskirt"
"Hawkeye, gun"
"Alphonse, ironman"

So not only is he being used as an advertisement against his will, but an advertisment for milk? Talk about adding insult to injury.
