So months ago, I signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] holicminibang as an artist, mostly so that I could illustrate one of [livejournal.com profile] evil_whimsey's fics. She's such a brilliant writer- far better than I- and my bestest pal to boot, so it was a real pleasure to draw for her.

(also, this provided me with fuel for my own xxxHolic fic, which I am working on for [livejournal.com profile] became_fire- my massively behind schedule [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fic. Which is moving, actually, all the moreso now that I've spend some time inside those boy's heads.)

At any rate, the summer slipped past me awfully fast and busy, and I didn't get as much time to spend on this as I'd hoped, but it still came out pretty darned well all things considered. I'm pleased with it. And many thanks have to go to [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep and [livejournal.com profile] psiten, both of whom- when I was having a meltdown over anatomy and foreshortening one night- were kind enough to act as models and shoot photos which they emailed me, so that I had some sources to go by. *massive hugs*

So anyway, here's the illustration to Whimsey's fantastic story, Abort, Retry, Fail, which you should really all go and read, because it is fabulous.

Warnings: Art contains boykissing and frottage.

Okay... I'm gonna admit, I'm really happy with this one. And this is rare; usually, by the time I'm done with a piece of art, I'm absolutely fed up with it. But this one... yeah. I like it. My feelings may change once I've had some time away from it (time always lends new perspectives to art of any sort), but for now I'm proud of it, and want to show it off. :D

I am not, however, posting it directly to the journal, because it's HUGE! So the link goes to DeviantArt instead.


Title: Foreplay
Pairing: Ed/Roy (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Boykissing, and tight pants

(the song I'm listening to right now goes with this picture *so* well- I'm a highschool lover, and you're my favorite flavor...)

follow the linky to DeviantArt!


I used a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet to create this- BEST! TOOL! EVER!! Took me somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-15 hours to complete. Whee!

So today- which was to have been a big writing day for me- I got sucked into yet another illustration. And this one, I really kinda like. A lot of work went into it- research, among other things. I swear, to be a fanartist for FMA, one almost needs to be a mechanical engineer, in order to draw Ed's automail correctly. I don't know how Arakawa does it, but she must be a frickin' genius.

Anyhoo, I hunted down a bunch of other artwork (mostly Arakawa's, but some fanart) as source material, then hunted down a whole 'nother batch for Roy's uniform, and this is what I came up with.

And for the record, I don't know what's gotten into Ed. But I'm guessing that kissing will soon follow.

Ed and Roy )

My shading is still mostly awful. I'll need to work on that.

Well... in lieu of writing this afternoon (which I really ought to have been doing), I opted to waste time in an entirely different manner. I drew. Though of course, being obsessed as I am, I still drew Rusted Dawn, even if I wasn't writing it.

Silly, one-track mind o'mine. Heh.

At any rate, there are things I'm not so pleased about in this illustration, but also things I like greatly. I like Ed's braid. I dislike Roy's posture. The shading is atrocious.

Now ask me if I can be arsed to clean it all up.

Yeah. You got that right.

So anyhoo... here's my interpretation of the morning in Estmont, from the most recent segment of Rusted Dawn.

...he's unprepared to wake this way, with the distance between them closed, and Edward's head on his pillow. )
