FMA - Lazy Afternoon WIP by rosesmusings FMA - Lazy Afternoon WIP by rosesmusings
(Here on Tumblr - [link]) (Please reblog!)

Thought Iíd practice a little with architecture and also sketch something Fullmetal Alchemist-ish for October 3rd?

Had to use some various references, which helped a lot! (Recalling my art lessons about vanishing points helped, too.) Everythingís a bit off, though, but Iím not too concerned about it. I might get around to coloring it at some point but Iím not sure.

Happy don't forget day! :D The Elrics broing around is always a great concept for a piece of fanart. It reminds me of the part of the Blind Alchemist ova where the boys are just sitting eating ice cream. And heh, Ed looks like he's all "Why do you want some, Al? you can't eat!"

Wow, and I clicked on this thinking that it was probably just a character lineart! Not that I dislike your uncolored pieces, on the contrary I love them, but this scene is fantastic even without color. The street has a real sense of life, and the Elric brothers look pretty much perfect. You said that everything seems a bit off, and when I first looked I had no idea what you were talking about, but after a while I think I sort of see what you mean. At the same time, I'm something of a perfectionist and I find that when I stare at things too much I tend to find problems with them that aren't really there to begin with. Perhaps it's the depth? Anyway, awesome piece regardless!

Thanks so much! :D It's the perspective - some things are at odd angles and have incorrect sizes and shapes. I lost the original vanishing point and had to create another, so everything looks sort of weird, haha. I'm glad it looks okay, though, and it was a fun practice! ^^

Ah, perspective, that's probably the word I was looking for. I'm not exactly well versed in artistic terminology. As an international relations major my version of perspective usually has to do with whether or not someone wants to blow your head off, usually with a high caliber automatic weapon. :/

DUDE WHEN I SAW THIS ON TUMBLR I WAS SO EXCITED. I WAS HOPING YOU'D POST THIS HERE, AND YOU DID :'D

Ed and Al look amazing here, and i love the little details in this picture :'D
I feel that small lamp at the top of the picture looks sorta like its swaying away from us, but thats nitpicking :P
Love this picture :hug:
Great job! c:

Thank you! :meow: Hmm. I used a reference with the lamp, so it is in an accurate position, but I suppose I could have detailed it better so it looked a bit more stable.

This is excellently done and I can't do much without references either. Someday, maybe I could bring up elaborate backgrounds. :icongreatjobplz:

Thanks very much! :D It'll take a lot more practice before being able to go without references, but it would definitely be awesome to get to that point someday! ^^
