Free Sketch 4 - Ed by objoyful Free Sketch 4 - Ed by objoyful
And heeeerrreeee's Free Sketch #4 - Ed from Full Metal Alchemist for :iconwoodofthebirch:! I think he looks a little older than he should, but overall I'm pretty pleased with how he turned out. :)

On a personal note, this free sketch marked my first ever attempt at drawing anything like automail, armor, robotic stuff, etc. Heh, I never do the detailed, techie stuff, but it was fun! :D (If his automail foot looks a little weird, it's 'cause I couldn't find a ref pic for it and kinda had to make it up based on the hand. ^^;)

I certainly am learning a lot from these free sketches - I might have to do this again sometime! :D

Oh, and Edward Elric belongs to Hiromu Arakawa. :)

lolz, yeah - I just couldn't get the eye you could see to look right no matter how many times I erased and tried again! ^^; Luckily, winking fits his character okay! XD Oh wow, thank you so much for the compliments - I really appreciate it! ^^ (lol, and I'm sure you could do automail if you wanted - you're a very good artist! ^^ )

Yeah, I hate it too - I've totally destroyed pics that way before! ^^; *sigh*

Heh, I didn't think I could really do the tech type stuff either (and I still doubt I could do anything like a gundam, lol), but it was actually more fun than I thought it would be! :D

I had a lot of fun drawing him - I wasn't sure about the automail, but it ended up being fun too, so I'm really glad it turned out well! ^^

And no worries - you'd faved it, so I knew you liked it okay! ^^

thats quite good!
the automail looks cool
(cant draw stuff like that at all and avoids it by always drawing Ed with his jacket on)

keep it up

Oh, thank you so very much - I really appreciate hearing that from you (having a high opinion of your work, you know).

Heh, yeah, I thought about doing that - but I'm kinda stubborn and I hate feeling like there's something I really can't draw (even though there are currently LOTS of things I really can't draw ^^;), so I figured I give it a try. ^^

I shall endeavor to do so! :salute:

Heh, well at least you get around to them eventually! XD

Right-ho, then! *ish off to practice more* XD

Oh dear - don't die, then you won't be able to draw any more! ^^'

Heh, but yeah, I know what you mean - I'm not sure that most of my "watchers" even look at anything I post - but meh, some do and they seem to like it, so I'm happy enough. ^^

And woot, yeah - I'm just glad you don't mind my chattering! ^^'

Ah wow! >_< Ed is so nifty.
I have to show this to mah friend. She's an Ed fan. XD
And I really like how you did the automail and the clothes. >_<
I suck at making those slight wrinkles in clothing and what not. T.T

objoyful Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2008
Yay! Thank you so very, very much - I'm glad you think the automail and the clothes look good! *phew* Heh, the wrinkles are just lots of practice and lots of looking at how clothes wrinkle when they're on people (I kinda stare at people sometimes for that reason - 'cause their clothing is hanging in an interesting way and I wanta remember it for when I can sketch it - probably makes them nervous, though ^^;) I need lots more practice, 'cause I still can't do them quite right, but I'm getting better! I'm sure you could do it too! ^^

And I hope your friend likes it okay! ^^

I need to start practicing again. XD I've been immensely lazy. And I would be really embarassed to just stare at someone because if I do stare at someone they stare directly at me. And then I feel really weird. XD

And you ish very welcome! ^_^
And I'll be sure to show my friend when she comes online.

Yesh, woot for practice! lol XD (Of course, lazy can be nice too! XD) Heh, and I probably should be embarassed, but I'm kinda weird sometimes. ^^; Ah well, it's not like staring hurts them any. :D

Yay, thanks again! ^^

XD Ah. I love being lazy. |3 It's relaxing~... And that's true. XD But eh... I dunno. Sometimes I stare off into space at school and then when I realize it, I find myself staring at someone's butt or something...

And you're welcome. ^.^

Heh, I'm not really good at being lazy - though I am good at wasting time! lol XD And eep, yeah, that would be embarassing. And I must admit, I do try to do my staring surreptitiously, heh, but that probably makes it weirder if they notice me. ^^;
