mersades: Heh.

I would like to thank everyone who left the kind comments on my last post. I appreciate them a lot. :)

Hand sketched, outlined and colored with Photoshop. :)

Utterly stunning. The coloring looks great along with the background. Between the art and the fics regarding these two always fuels my love for them so much more than it already has.

::awhs at your icon::

I know how you feel. Looking at other peoples RoyxRiza art or reading about them just makes me love the pair that much more.

Wow, stunning. How do you paint it? Which program do you use, and how do you use it?? I would love to know to paint that well T^T

I use Photoshop and my trusty Wacom tablet (best computer investment I've ever made).

ohhh... I would love to have a tablet like that... how much does it cost?

It depends which model you get. Mine cost $400 since I got one of the professional models to help me with my work. They have cheaper ones for around $100 that are great. Anything Wacom makes is high-quality and long-lasting (I've have mine for 5 years now and it works as good as the day I bought it), so you don't have to worry about that. :) You can check out what they have a www.wacom.com.

Lots, and lots, and lots, and LOTS of hours practicing, and many years in art school. And I still feel like I'm only average. ^_^; Thank you!

OMG. I just wanna know where you got that icon!! Is it from official work or fanart? @.@

It's offical work. It's from the cover of last month's Animage magazine and I found it on fullmetal-alchemist.com when they posted the translation. I can't seem to find it now, so I uploaded it for you. :) http://www.chaotic-equilibrium.com/temp/266.jpg

That's totally awesome. ^^ But I'm wondering who's tosro Roy's head was placed upon, because in that image you can't see his epaulettes because of Ed. That and the angle of the shoulders is off. but the image still kicks major butt. XD

Ah ha, I finally found where the large version was stashed: http://www.fullmetal-alchemist.com:81/forums/index.php?showtopic=4022

I just did some touch up with the clone tool in Photoshop to get rid of some text/Ed's hair, then I found a image of Roy at a similar angle so that I could include his shoulder. ^_^

Still love Roy's expression. Awesome art.

*squee*! Very shiny ^__^ I saw the uncolored one the other day and this one is even better!!

Sat, Apr. 2nd, 2005 12:27 pm (UTC)

Wow, I just love it! I think my favorite thing about it though is the detail you took the time to create. Like the picture on the wall... wow. Very nice indeed!

Omg! For a second I thought it was an official image but then I reminded myself it was fanart. You're extremely talented, just wish I was as talented as you :( (PS: nice to meet everyone, this is my first post).

Sun, Apr. 3rd, 2005 10:25 pm (UTC)

wow that is great!
