you know Ed, he doesn't have many friends... by rockinrobin you know Ed, he doesn't have many friends... by rockinrobin
:star: Prints for sale @ Storenvy! [link] :star:

I've wanted to do a picture like this for a long time now, as a tribute to one of the most amazing series I've ever read/seen. it's just packed full of so many wonderful characters, lessons, and memories that I wanted to include as much as I could in one drawing. about a year ago I never could've had the endurance to finish something like this, but I'm pretty proud of my improvement since then! that's one of the main things that art school has helped me with, I think. right now I have a few weeks of *actual* summer break in between summer school and the fall semester, so I really enjoyed working on a big drawing like this just for fun. (since I won't have time to do much drawing for *fun* once school starts :/)

I really thought a lot about the composition and colors while drawing this, so I hope it shows. ^^ Ed is front and center, of course. his outfit is based both on the scene from chapter 1 and from the final battle, where is shirt is ripped.

I'll have this as a print for sale at animefest and I'll also have an online store up and running soon if anyone's interested in purchasing one online :]

oh, the title is a quote by Winry from the Milos movie. xD I don't know why, it just popped in my head while I was drawing this :XD:

I'll ask the group and talk to them about it of course, but I think they'll definitely be for it. ^___^ After all, we got our print from you. :3

Btw, how much are you selling the Jack Frost print for?

I haven't gotten any prints of it made yet, but if I do they'll probably be 12x12", so $10 or $15.

One question. how many layers?
Reply
:iconrockinrobin:
rockinrobin Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Student Digital Artist
ahhh..... probably hundreds ^^; actually, the whole file was too big for my computer to handle, so I had to split it up into smaller files. I drew each character in a separate document with about 10-20 layers each and then compiled them all into one big document. so yeah, hundreds XD

No, not a lot, A FREAKING TON!! But, umm, not my favorite style of fan art, PLEASE TAKE NO OFFENSE!! I just don't like it the most. It doesn't mean that it is bad, cause believe me it is not. I can tell that you know what you are doing though. DON'T HATE ME FOR THE NEGATIVE REVIEW PLEASE! sorry, someone ignored me for this kind of thing once.

Yes! I loved that touch. I don't know how it is with automail, but whenever I work with anything vaguely messy for art projects (charcoal, paint, etc.), I usually have quite a few smudges (most often on my nose for it is itchy).
