Edward Elric Winter Wonderland by l3xxybaby Edward Elric Winter Wonderland by l3xxybaby
PLEASE READ FIRST:
( This picture is taken from a Fullmetal Alchemist Artbook and is owned by Hiromu Arakawa. I only redrew and colored to test my skills at photoshop. All Credit to Arakawa PLEASE! )


Edward wrapped up warm for winter :D

Got bored of my traditional cel-shade style and decided to do this pic in the more painted look of the original pic :)

It was done in photoshop cs3 in about 3 hours using the paintbucket tool, polygon lasso and spray can brush lolz

This pic is drawn from one of the fullmetal alchemist calenders which are full of fantastic art so go hunt all of them down hehe :D

Hope you enjoy it as much as i did replicating it!

Lex.

Awesome coloring, and just like the original, you forgot his antenna. XD No one notices except me though, because I knew it wasn't there in the first place. Very nicely done though. ^ ^

Yea it took awhile to do the whole thing, think it was an hour for the lineart and about 4 for the coloring. obviously all the original colors, lineart and paint style was from hiromu arakawa the creator of fullmetal herself, i just wanted to attempt to make it as close to hers as poss.

yea having a dispute bout this pic atm with someone.
they think im taking credit for creating it, but i just wanted to try a recreate it.

you know, as a test of skills, i would never steal lolz.

but yea took loads of time and was quite different as i usually do celshade lol but anyone could do it.

just takes time, patience and the will to learn :D

How can you possibly get so many favorites for something you just copied? How does that even work? I'm really disappointed.
Reply
:iconl3xxybaby:
l3xxybaby Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i replicated not copied.

it does take effort and time to paint these.
im sorry you feel this way,as i am a huge fullmetal fan myself, but the faves i get on this are appreciation for my work on it, not that i copied it.

i do not post these as a way of stealing, i hate art thieves, i post them to show my paint skills.

There's no difference there when everything's the same.

What about favorites from people who liked the pose, or the colors? Perhaps they didn't know that Arakawa drew the original and you copied it. I don't think people favorite because they appreciate it.

And, if you drew original pictures, you'd be showing paint skills. Just because you can paint like the original picture doesn't necessarily mean you can paint something good.

l3xxybaby Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ok, when ppl comment on they like the pose, i do say that the lineart is not mine, its arakawa's and that it from a artbook. i do not claim to own this picture in anyway.

i do tell them that i didn't create it i just drew the pic from the art and color it.
And the ppl i know that fave it, do know that i only color things really so they know its not mine.
So the faves and comments from them are true to form and are only appreciating the work i did replicating it.

i didn't say i can paint good, i only say whether i think i did a good job or not. i dont brag and attacking me like this is unfair.

I understand that you think i'm stealing it, and taking credit. but i would never do anything to upset arakawas great art style. i wouldn't have a chance in a million years to do that anyway as shes godly lol.

i saw the picture and liked it so much that i wanted to try and do it myself. thats all.

i only want to get better at coloring and if that upsets you then im sorry. i really am. :(

Thank you :) yea i saw the original pic and was like "wow! ed looks amazing!"

just had to be done hehe :D

theres meant to be antennae? lol

Yeah, the small strand of hair Ed has standing out in the middle of his bangs. Arakawa (and lots of others) call it an antennae. Pretty cute, actually.
And yes, the picture IS that amazing. I have been thinking to draw it too, but also add the antennae for my own touch of the pic! ^_^

Arakawa about the original picture: "Augh, I forgot to add the antennae! Sorry Ed!"

I know! When I first saw the pic, I noticed it directly and thought 'hey that looks weird.' And then I thought that maybe it's supposed to be that way, until I read the comment five seconds later... XD

Yosh! I'll get right to it! *salutes*
