ON TUMBLr



~~

:squee: First "Fullmetal Alchemist" FanArt of the year~! ^^ Aaaaaaand, it's RoyAi~! :love: :heart: (Well.... non-romantic RoyAi anyway |D). I need to draw more of these two more often >w< :heart:

This was an Art Trade I did with :iconhayate-hime: hayate-hime :aww: (You guys should totally check her art out, by the way. She pulls off the FMA manga style and coloring SUPER WELL! :la: ). Anyway~ She wanted a picture of Roy and Riza, and.... what better picture to have of them than Roy being coy and pout-y about his "gloves getting wet" while Riza is chiding him for "being useless in the rain"? xDD

Here's HER part of the trade: Cow Juice by hayate-hime Cow Juice

On a side note, it's starting to become easier for me to switch between FMA03/Shamballa art style and Brotherhood art style now~ :meow:

Anyway, I hope you guys like it~! ^^

Just like Riza to cover her Colonel from the rain better than she covers herself :P

This is lovely, and you hit the anime's style dead on for the most part (Riza looks absolutely perfect)

I do think Roy's got some small issues around his chin/neck and (his) right hand? I can't tell if it's just the pose or angle, but it looks a little like he has no neck, and that his chin is maybe... shorter? Than it should be?

His right hand also looks like it's bent at the wrist at a painful/improbable angle. It's not way way off, but it does look odd to my eye.

You've totally nailed their personalities here, I really love this picture :D

First of all, before I say anything, I just want to say.... I LOVE your icon! *A*

Anyway~ xD back to the feedback response...

I'm glad that I hit the anime's style~ That's what I've always been working on perfecting with everything that I'm drawing. So that it fits the style and looks believable, and, well, good enough to be considered that it's FanArt for the series. So, it's really great to hear that I hit the Brotherhood style right~ ^u^

Now that you mention Roy though and his "anatomy" (in the picture)... I can see what you mean. At first I was trying to have his shoulders upward while he looks hunched over (like he's pouting about "Getting wet" xD). So, I can see why it looks like his chin/neck look weird |D As for his hand.... now that you mention it, I can see what you mean, especially since his wrist joint is bent so that his arm looks like it's stretched out horizontally (with his elbow sticking out (although that's off-screen)). Thanks for bringing that up! I'll be sure to work on that ^^

Thanks again~! :hug:

It looks like the style that the original FMA had (the first one)! This looks like Arakawa drew this himself!! Amazing! :D O_o

:iconsakura-araragi:
Sakura-Araragi Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Wait. Looks like the first FMA (FMA03) or the manga series? (Because I can assure you that Arakawa didn't draw FMA03). All 5 different versions of FMA have different art styles. Anyway... I wasn't trying to make it look like either the FMA03 art style nor the FMA Manga style. ^^; I was actually trying to go for FMAB (Brotherhood) style |D 

Regardless, I'm glad that you like it ^^

BenTheFighter Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh well yeah I was talking about FMA03. I thought Arakawa made the art style for it but I guess I was wrong :D.... Five different art styles? I've only seen 3 and I've seen both animes and some of the manga 0.o

:iconsakura-araragi:
Sakura-Araragi Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2015  Student Digital Artist
No, Arakawa was the one who created the manga. She didn't make the anime---the animation studio (BONES) did that. But, yeah, there's five different art styles (from what I've seen). There's the manga art style, FMA03, Shamballa, FMAB, and Sacred Star of Milos. 

Anyway, in this picture I was going for the FMAB art style---mainly because it's my default FMA art style. And you can tell it's FMAB because of the hair design. It looks thicker and has much more volume. Riza's bangs especially are curved and---as I call it---"obey gravity"; as opposed to FMA03 where they're straight.

its okay. I can understand the confusion. ^^ if Riza's eyes were open you could easily tell which art style it is. FMAB Riza has dark irises where the brown "highlight" at the bottom can only be viewed; however, in FMA03, Rizams eyes are a reddish brown and have absolutely no pupils.

I'm in love with the way you color, and the shading is amazing! Also, that beautiful rainy background which is so realistic, I'm in love! Love  Beautiful work, as always Clap

I've been told that it looks legit enough to be a screenshot xD So, I understand the confusion ^^ I'm glad that you like it though~! ^^
I had to add the rain to emphasize Roy's uselessness when wet, so.... this idea was born~! ^^
Again, thanks so much ^^

Yup, Riza always has to take care of Roy in the rain :D You are getting better at all FMA styles, as well as keeping your unique style, like how you draw and shade hair! :la: Great job!

Sakura-Araragi Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Indeed she does ^^ And she always chides and reprimands him when he gets ahead of himself and tries to make flames in the rain xD (He needs to figure out how to transmute with waterproof gloves. That's be an interesting AU ewe Though, I feel like it would defeat the running gag of Roy being "useless when wet xD). Thank you so much~! :tighthug: I'm Really glad that you like it ^^ Brotherhood is a bit more of an easier style to draw (since it's more cartoon-y compared to the Shamballa art style that I've been drawing in for a while). And... really? I never thought that I had my own style.... ^^; I just draw and shade hair according to how the characters are supposed to look and have their hair shaded |D But, if you can see a bit of difference or uniqueness in it, then I'll take your word for it ^^ Thanks again, Hayden~!

You're welcome! From the very first volumes, it has been a thing XD True that, though yes that would be interesting, though how a pair could be made is the question.
I can relate to that - Brotherhood does seem to have less details than Shamballa style, so for us at least it is easier to mimic. Have you ever thought that the Shamballa and 2003 anime's style looked similar?
Reply
:iconsakura-araragi:
Sakura-Araragi Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Hmm.... I suppose the gloves could be tick with insulation, but still provide the friction to produce heat (that, and they need to be slick enough to do.  So that Roy can add enough pressure with his fingers to snap them. But... I guess that would be more difficult with thicker gloves... |D ).
I know, right? And the colors (especially the skin) looks so much more realistic, especially for that time period, where a lot of the clothes were faded and desaturated colors.
Have I ever thought that Shamballa and 2003's art style looked similar? Absolutely not! There's a huge difference (and improvement) from FMA03 to Shamballa. FMA03 art style is half-decent (and you can tell at points in the episodes where the artists got lazy). But in Shamballa.... Oh, there's so much detail and smoothness... It's just so beautiful~! ^^ I guess it was like that because the animation studio didn't have that pressure when working, because they were just working on a 90-minute movie rather than a 20-something-minute episode with a plot that they made up as they went along.... I can just imagine how tired the poor guys on the animation team must've gotten during that time...

:iconhaydenmaye:
haydenmaye Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, okay. I've only watched Shamballa once, now that I think about it, and so I must not be able to remember much about it, so I made that kind of comparison. I'll have to go watch it again :D True that, a standalone anime movie with a established plot would get more time and detail than individual episodes in a series, and at the time they must have been on tight schedules to get the episodes out for people to enjoy.

I've only seen it once as well, but, of course, the plethora of screenshots and GIFs that I see on my dash on Tumblr gives me a refresher xD But, the art style is oh so different when you put them together (Like a side by side comparison). But, like I said, I think it's because the animators were able to do a better job during the movie because they didn't have that pressure of a plot that didn't have a set ending for a long time.
