Fullmetal Alchemist Typography by rockinrobin Fullmetal Alchemist Typography by rockinrobin
this semester I'm taking a typography class. as you can see, I'm starting to become a big fan of typography :D I've been learning to use illustrator and practicing hand-rendering type. so I just made these for fun and practice.

Roy Mustang is based on Avant Garde, geometric with circles and triangles based on his glove design.

Edward Elric is based on the human transmutation circle.

Alphonse Elric is hand-painted (WITH BLOOD haha/ j/k) based on his blood seal.


feel free to download and use as a desktop background or wherever you like, just link back to here PLEASE. :]

Thats awesome, I think I have to use illustrator some day :)

thanks! illustrator is pretty difficult to learn, but once you get the hang of it is really cool and useful! there are so many cool things you can do with it. I still have a LOT to learn myself but still it's fun to experiment and mess around with! definitely a must if you ever want to get into doing more professional-ish art, logo design, typography, certain types of illustration, etc (as opposed to Photoshop or other drawing programs such as Paint Tool SAI)

Yeah Paint Tool SAI is my most favorite drawing programm. But I really would like to learn how to do professional typography. Since now I only do logo designs with the free vectorprogramm inkscape.

Can you suggest any tutorials?

hmmm... I don't really know of any good illustrator tutorials off the top of my head, sorry. :/ I mostly learned from a class that I took. but of course it's definitely possibly to learn on your own too! I bet you could find some good resources via Google. maybe try searching for things like "illustrator tutorials" or "illustrator tips" or "illustrator beginner" and stuff like that. :)
