This picture is based on a Saosin song of the same name (interestingly, this picture seems to have very little to do with the song…). Ed was drawn first, Alphonse added as an afterthought. :O That’s nuts! And the lines ended up looking a bit grainy since I resized it weird—they were originally very crisp. (And yes, Ed’s arm is two different colors—do you see where they split? Don’t even know how THAT happened, must have just dragged the color slider and gotten them off a bit…)


~Edward and Alphonse Elric are from Fullmetal Alchemist~

I just love Ed’s big gold eyes! Great pic!

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "haha, thank you! O.O "

Girl, you just keep gettin better and better! Well done. Full Metal is one of my faves. I look forward to more!

Do you do nothing but draw Ed???? Did you create him???

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "Haha--it looks like I don’t draw anything but Ed, huh? No, I actually do a lot of other stuff. Ed is just the only fanart I’m really into. 18 I didn’t create him, no--I’m friends with his voice actor, though."

Sweet! Your talent for drawing is just amazing! It looks just like it came out of the movie!!

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "Haha, thanks much! I try to get a pretty accurate look. 1"

Goshdangit, I’m a slacker. That’s very nice of you, Megan, to not say anything to Jenna for forever. -_-

No! Not the point of this comment.

Anyway, I love Edward’s Facial expression. In fact, that was the first thing I noticed when I looked at this picture. I think it’s so cute...
It looks like Alphonse is trying to make a point to Ed about something and Ed’s being a tease. Silly boy, be nice!

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "Oh, don’t worry--if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a slacker for ages. But I’ve also been obscenely busy and extremely ill. So I think I have something of an excuse.

Heh, you got it! That does sort of look like what’s going on, doesn’t it? Thanks a million."

I’m sorry, I think Elcricest is WEIRD and I know you don’t do those sort of pictures, Jenna; but I can’t think of any other phrase to put with Ed’s expression: ’You looking for a good time, sailor?’

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "OH LORD. *cracks up* Stop--I’m--laughing--my stitches out--"

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "It’s a pretty good one, neh? Er--not the picture, the series. 2"

I agree. The series is mature and different from a lot of other anime shows, which is what makes it so great.

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "Yeah--I think it’s great. It has a lot of interesting stuff, and a little bit of everything. 1"

great one - the best part for me is Ed’s eyes - they are so cool! HE looks well smug here!

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "Thanks much! ...I find that he generally looks smug when I draw him. Not reflective of my personality, I hope, though I am a bit of a sark..."
26 Jul 2009:-) Anna "Soulredeemer" Christiano
Awesome pics, I love FMA!!! Al looks like he came right out of the anime in this one. Great job!!!!

:-) Jenna 'Kaikisuka' Linn Barton replies: "Thank you so much! I’m glad you like it."
