Hello and wallpaper~  
Hello everyone! I've been posting here in replies from time to time but I've been reading over this community for quite a while now. I finally decided to register myself in there! Short introduction: My name is Sandy, I'm a female, 21 and live in Belgium. I watched all the serie when it was still aired in Japan and I'm a total Ed lover XD.

So as I promised a few days ago, here is my last wallpaper based on the latest Newtype scan.


Comments: This world needs more Ed sexiness. Especially Munich!Ed. <3 This is a wall that comes up right on time with Winter. Since the original scan was a pain in the ass to retouch ( http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/58867/ ), I've decided to vectorize Ed in all his splendid glory with Illustrator (sorry Al but your colours didn't fit the background I planned to draw lol). If you've noticed and watched the entire serie, you'll know it's how he is dressed up at the end and how he will be in the upcoming movie. And yes, he is older (Imma no pedo anymore whooho XD). I found the picture really melancholic and inspiring.

I went for a background inspired by the world and time Ed was "teleported" in, which is ours in fact since it happens in Munich in 1921. The buildings were traced from a stock photo and so was the zeppelin. I had hard times finding my reference pictures with the perspective I wanted. It's not war time but the city is still on guard with zeppelins patroling the air. The moon wasn't really necessary but it gives a dramatic side to the picture so me likes. :3 Many FX to blend the elements together.

It's been a while I didn't make a wallpaper and I'm pretty proud of how this one turned out. 3 days work. Sure it's no "magical scenery" but I'm sure true FMA fans will surely appreciate it. ^^

If you're a minitokyo member, I'd gladely appreciate comments or fav. ;D More of my works can be viewed at http://sandy.minitokyo.net (members only).

Hello and welcome! I saw your website a couple of times, and I think you're good at cosplaying! Cosplay as a character in FMA sometime! :D

Btw, awesome wallpaper! I saved it, and thank you! ^_^;

Gah, I do love his ponytail! And the wallpaper is really awesome, I love the background. Do you have a 8x6 version, by any chance? ^^;

Well if you are using Windows XP, if you go in your screen setting and choose the wallpaper, you can ask to "fit" it in. No need to resize. :]

I'm not using XP. ^^; Would it be alright if I resized it for my personal use? If not, I understand. :3
ruika on November 21st, 2004 02:15 pm (UTC)
Of course, feel free to resize it like you want. ^^

OMG Awesome wallpaper!! XD It really is! I've searched for FMA wallpapers before and there are not too many that come by as impressive as yours! I really love it! I'm impressed with the fact that you redrew it in Illustrator and I think the composition is pretty good. This will be my new desktop wallpaper for a while. X3 Thank you for sharing it!

Your wallpaper is gorgeous, I love how crisp the lines look and how well everything blends together! ^^ And older Ed is definitely a beautiful sight! You should make one of older Al too ^^
