Brooklyn - Transmutation by Neomae Brooklyn - Transmutation by Neomae
Currently watching "Fullmetal Alchemist" and wanted a new wallpaper - not much more to say about that ^^

Transmutation circle from here: [link]
Thanks to :iconazraelgargoyle: for helping me with the light effect!

I know this is just a simple coloring and I could do much more with the scene. I'm planning on trying something more with it, but for now it's alright as a wallpaper, so I post it.

Tipps are appreciated!

EDIT: download for full size =)

Gargoyles and Fullmetal Alchemist? Can I just HELL YEEEESSS!!!!!!!!!! Both series are pretty much top favorite animated shows, absolutely fantastic series. This looks awesome too, I love how the transmutation circle is like the only light visible, very well done picture...though I can't help but wonder Brooklyn is making XD

Awesome work! Is there a story that goes with this, or just for fun?

I like your style of drawing Brookyln. He looks like he needs a sammich though! :D

I used to have a crush on Brooklen when i was 5 or 6. LOL Its just something about his voice, beek and ling white hair that make him so attraktive.

Whoa! A Brooklyn that can use Alchemy, that would make an awesome fanfic.

I love this BG lol. it's usually what I settle on if I can't find anything else, which, I usually don't so yeah. I wish this was an actual fanfic though.

Now that'd be a cool crossover I'd read FMA and Gargoyles.

When did Brooklyn learn alchemy?
By the way is just Fullmetal Alchemist or is it Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood?

Beyond awesome!
Mephistodin Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2010
I'd like to see Brooklyn giving the Human Transmutation sacrifice that Ed did at the end of the original FMA which ended in him going to our world when Nazis where an issue. Such an awesome alchemic art.

Another inspiring piece, I also ask if you care if I print this as well. Partly for the reference for the sculpture, but largely for the fact it's a great Brooklyn picture.

wow love it :)

Far from simple drawing it's awesome, colors used, shadows, lights, everything is quite excellent.
Maybe you can apply a background that could mix two worlds of them, Full Metal A. and Gargoyles, maybe something medieval but detailed could be my suggestion.
But for now it's perfect for me, his anatomy improved thousand times better than original.
Can I put it as my wallpaper? :+fav:ed!!!
Mephistodin Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2009
now that, is f'ing cool!
Litwolf689 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2009
I havnt commented on this yet? How odd. Well I shall do so now.

OMG I love this piece! Brooklyn with the FMA circle fit so well for some reason. He looks so determined at whatever he's thinking of. Truly, wow, I love it so much! ;)

Epantiras Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
awesome ^_^
*entering advanced critique mode*
the drawing itself and the coloring are great. the cell style shading turned out very well. The blue gradient coming from the circle is a very nice touch, it covers only the lower part of the pic and splits the figure in two: light/lower part and darkness/upper part. It helps 'reading' the composition

It's hard to find something wrong with this pic... I could spot only minor 'flaws':
- biiiig hands, but it could be in your 'style', just like big 'wing arms'
- his left leg, the area around the knee looks too 'flat', it should be more 'rounded' instead imho
- thin tail, almost like a biker mice ;-) but it could be a feature of your style
- where's the other wing? Probably it's concealed by the darkness. If I were you I'd color it with dark colors, it should be still visible

If you'd like to experiment with colors and light effects, you could try to make a new layer on top of the others and set it to 'screen' or 'weaken' (it depends on which effect looks better) then paint some blue where Brooklyn's touching the trasmutation circle. The goal is to make the drawing lines blend better with the circle. Try not to add too much light, however, because it could break the composition balance and ruin the cell-style effect

I hope it helps!

Thank you very much for your detailed hints!!
You are right, the big hands are something I just love to draw! After all, they climb walls with them, fight with them, ... I always pictured gargoyle hands huuuuge =)
But the tail is indeed a lot too thin.
You are also very rigth with the knee. Do you have any idea how I could make it look rounder with the help of the shading?
The other wing is there, but most of it is covered by Brook's body. Do you notice the wing skin next to Brooklyn's hair and left shoulder?

Your hints sure help a lot! Putting a color layer on top of the inking - I never tried that before! Thank you!
Epantiras Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I hope you won't mind if I did some cheap MSPaint edit to show you what I mean about the knee [link] I tried at least 3 times to write down what I was thinking but I believe I couldn't explain it even in Italian v_v I hope this little pic helps!

Very good work! :thumbsup:

Would a gargoyle be able to use alchemy?. Absolutely. Remember, Demona was a magician's apprentice, so she definitely could do it. :nod:
T-babe Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2008
This is very well done and all, but... are you sure a gargoyle would be able to use alchemy?

This looks really awesome, hon! You did a great job on it.

Awesome, awesome, awesome.
