FMA Graphic!  
In response to this post earlier, I struggled to get the transmutation circle on Roy's glove accurately drawn. This is not a direct copy!

This is not a cropped and cleaned up picture from the scanslations or any other artwork. I used the manga as guidelines, and drew most of this using vector shapes in Photoshop. The fire symbol at the top was completely horrendous--if anyone finds a dingbat font that has that symbol, please tell me. I couldn't find it anywhere, and I spent more time looking than on the actual graphic. The salamander... I'm good at technical drawing, but hand... If anyone takes the drawing and puts their own salamander there instead, I won't be offended--more so, I want a copy of the modified graphic.

Furthermore, if anyone wants to contact me to get the actual Photoshop file with the vectors still in layers, I'll send it to those who want it. To those who are confused, vector drawing means it doesn't become fuzzy when looked at in magnification, it still has a sharp edge to it, not pixelated.

Please comment if you take it, I spent a lot of time on this, and constructive criticism would help, and also give me an idea what people are looking for when they request things like this.

Here's two icons made from the emblem. Comment if you take, I get a nice ego-boo from it.

Looks good except of the flames, which aren't all cute and bubbly like that.

Flames are evil...
...and I really mean that... I tried. That, and if you look at the manga, they didn't keep to a singular style for the way the flames were, even in size ratio to each other! Not an excuse for... bubbly?! cute?!? ;-] flames, but I just got to a point that I gave up and finished what I had.

In addition to what was said about the 'cute' flames, I think the salamander might be a little small ... I haven't looked at the manga much, though, so I don't know if it's different there. (When I drew the symbol on the cover of my sketchbook [geek], I was looking at the 2nd OP, paused, and I know that's pretty much hit-or-miss what with everything moving around and all.)

I'd like to take a shot at modifying it, if that's okay - IM me (hikariblue26) if you can send the file.

Nice pic! Um, the only things that don't match would be the shape of the flames and the salamander (should be a little larger). I found a link showing a rather clearly drawn picture of Roy's transmutation circle. Hope it helps. ^_^
