Fanart A Week okay this is probably getting old...

Okay, let's do one last Fullmetal Alchemist fanart before moving on to something new. I still have a bunch of FMA sketches in my sketchbook that I'd like to finish, but I'll do them in addition to some new fanart. Because, after all, this exercise is about learning, and one must push forward with the learnings and not get stuck in a learning rut or something.

Roy Mustang/Riza Hawkeye AAAAGH I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH. Please don't die at the end of FMA? Please? D: (I also did a schmoopy OTP picture over at Deviantart if you are into that sort of thing.) Anyway, let's pretend that fire actually looks like fire, okay? I don't like drawing fire. And I didn't feel like doing a polished colouring job, but I think this works with the sketchy inking, so we'll just call it "artistic."

I was looking at reference pictures for Roy, and my boyfriend had some comments:
Tim: People always draw him snapping. It's like it's the only thing he can do.
Me: ... I drew him snapping ...
Tim: ...
Me: ... he looks so cool when he does it.

Anyway. Next week: Fanart from some other comic!

Comments

Oh, nice! They should be doing that always.

Is it weird that I kind of want her hair?
HAWKEYE YES! You have to draw Mustang snapping. That's how he does his fire thing, and fire always looks cool.
BACK TO BACK BADASSES, NONSTOP~

snapping IS kind of the only thing mustang can do...

Well, i mean he can plot in a sexy machiavellian way, and pretend to goof off and hit on people, but when it comes to actual movement, snapping is about as advanced as he got...

I do like the sexy Machiavellian plotting... siiiiigh.
really though, its pretty hard to represent DECENT, JUST AND HONORABLE machiavellian plotting in a pin up. Drawing someone plotting always looks like theyre up to no good.
This comment made me giggle like a loon.
For the record, the fan art isn't getting gold at all. This one was great. Although if you can also find good ways to depict him doing Machiavellian plotting that would be even more awesome.
Awesomely dynamic! (Roy does look cool when he's snapping, it's his badass pose)
...pretty sure it will never get old, because FMA is amazing, and you are amazing, and the combined result is doubly amazing. I for one would love to see even the most humble of fma sketches from you. JUST PUTTING THAT OUT THERE XD
Oh, yeah, I'm going to keep posting the FMA stuff, just in addition to my Fanart A Week thing. Basically, I can't do anything for shits and giggles, it's gotta be a PROJECT. I am very srs bizness. :P
Great job on the movements and expressions!

Yeah, Roy is pretty much stuck snapping for the fandom all the time. The only people that snap more then him are dog trainers and flameco dancers.
lol, yeah. Sadly, except for the snapping and the plotting, he doesn't do much in the series. Which is weird, because he's super popular and a good character, but when I think about it ... yeah, he's not around overly much.
Olivier took control and left him in the dust.
eeee it does look quite cool!
This is fabulous! I love Riza's hair, and Roy's, "Ho ho, now I've gotcha," expression.
