Edward Elric

Here's the Ed I promised for my friend . Hope you like it ;).

Transmution circle done in Illustrator. Originally I was going to use the transmutation circle found on wikipedia but then I realized it was the human transmutation circle and it would be weird if Ed just randomly started doing that XD. Anyhow I'm no expert on this and have no idea what the tranmutation circle I used would be for.

<ninja>:ninja: If the eyes were blue, the face probably make a good Naruto :ninja:</ninja>

EDIT: Bigger body as per critique.

EDIT2: I seem to have made an error with the transmutation circle as I used the movie poster picture for ref(I haven't seen the movie). So for those of you who saw it please disregard the mistake <_<. It looks cool though I think ._.

EDIT3: Hopefully this is the final edit. I don't know why people have so much complaints about the shoulders, you can't even see the in the previous verison o.O.

While I've always admired the anatomical accomplishments (namely, the hands), texture of the skin, and posture of this piece, there are a few things that could still use tweaking to better embrace the character.
First of all, due to the wideness of the eyes and the size of the lips, the depiction of Edward can be seen as a somewhat feminine one. To remedy this, the jaw could also be adjusted to become more squared-off, thereby creating a more masculine angle of the face. The forehead seems a little off as well, but I'm sure it's just the hairstyle--which is brilliantly done. The realism you've given Edward is great, but there's always room for improvement! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" /> keep it up!

Beautiful picture of Edward! Your perportions are very good and the anatomy is dead on. His epression is very serious, somewhat cold, but his eyes give his demenor the efect that under it all he's sad. I'm not sure if that's what you intended, but that's what I see.

I like how you've made his hair and the lines of his black shirt very defined, yet the folds and lights/shadows contrast of his jacket are very soft, and not so harsh. It makes the overall image more balanced and easier to look at without straining the eyes.

Overall, a very beautiful piece of work, and very well constructed.
