Wind by nocturnalMoTH Wind by nocturnalMoTH
lol I seriously suck at making titles... XD

Anyways... This is a drawing I made of Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist! I've become a little obsessed with the show... ^^;

Hope you like it!

Whyareyousogoodateverything???
:heart:
This is a very well drawn picture. Personally I haven't really watched this show (yet... >D everyone's like "watch it, watch iiiit!") but I have seen art about it and I know how the characters look like... Edward looks amazing here *_*
I love the expression :heart: He looks pretty determined... I like the highlighting on his eyes~ it gives you the feeling of.. fire xD
I also just can't stop staring at the shading you did here o.o wow... especially the shading on the face... his nose and lips are shaded perfectly!!!
I personally believe that soft shading on pictures with characters having their anime characteristics (big eyes, round faces) is pretty difficult... but you seem to have done something between cell shading and softer shading... it gives a very nice feeling to the picture. Not too soft, not too rough. It comes closer to realistic colouring which, for me, is very good <3
I like the way you can see Ed's left eye under his hair :3 it keeps the feeling of his serious expression.
My favourite part of this is, like you have mentioned on the title, the feeling of the wind. It gives the picture a very nice atmosphere and it also gives... motion. I love the way his hair shows the direction of the wind :heart:

Very nice picture, it's wondefully drawn and coloured! It's pretty simple but it has so many things to stare at. I love your art, keep it up!!
What do you think?

Obssessed with it is good... It's a pretty good drawing, the shades in his hair are really well done, a little lighter than Ed's should be I think but it makes him look more angellic. :)

Who hasn't been obsessed with this show? (If you haven't, then WATCH IT! :@)

Really love the hair and it's flowiness... captured his expression flawlessly too, with the serious stare that always has a hint of defensiveness. My only complaint is the mouth and nose look a little too close together, but other than that, tis Bootyful!

what amazes me is how quickly you shade. ToT

it's like "zoom-zoom-zoom" and the entire shading of the nose is finished. it's really facinating to watch how steady your hand is on the tablet, and how controlled all the lines are. @o@

wahhh. u_u

Sometimes, you don't need a big title to get the idea of the artwork. :3 Something simple as 'Wind' works very well. I totally understand why it's called that. I think you did a great job all together with this artwork. ;3
