A new doujinshi and art!  
We come to you with an offer (read: comic pimp) and request for help.

First of all, this is the livejournal where our new online doujinshi, Sins Immortal, will be posted. We have yet to figure out posting dates and things, but it's just a heads-up.


Synopsis: The story is a major AU, cross between the anime and manga. Ed and Al are being tracked down by the homunculi, and then everything goes to pot when Winry, Roy and the rest of the posse get caught up in it. What do they want with Ed and Al? What... who is that? Blue stones?! Al... Winry... Havoc... Roy?! What are...- - -

Major Spoilers when we get around to it. Plot FTW! Can't forget all the fun we're gonna have with pairings, angst, squick, wtf-ness and crack. And that's not even the whole list.


Anyway...

There are three of us working on this little project.

purplemewit is currently editing and making the script presentable. Believe us, with all the gibbering we did, it's a major task. Besides, everything included, it's over 500 Word pages. X-x

tromkehra and dragonalchemist are trying to decide who is going to do the underlying sketches and who is going to do the coloring.

We came up with a plan. We each do a version of what we want the cover to look like, then put it up to a vote. The only rule there really happened to be was for the cover to feature Envy, Roy and Winry. Anything else could be added if we wanted.

So now, we come to you, our prospective *winkwinknudgenudge* viewers for the vote!

Give us comments, give us feedback and give us a vote. Tell us who you think should color and who should do the sketches. (One of us can't do both jobs, sadly. ^_^; )

We really appreciate it. :D

Thanks. Which picture do you think would make a better cover? The lower one is actually bigger than that. Photobucket resized it. watch out it's big! http://www.deviantart.com/view/29968738/

The first picture, the one made by Dragon alchemist.
And good luck in your doujinshi ^^

they're both very nice but as a cover the top one is a little more eyecatching

I really like the first cover that you did. It is really good! I love your drawing style. I like the use of coloring also. Great job!

ummm... Roy's eyes are black. Other then that cover one seems the best choice.
Chexdragonalchemist on March 6th, 2006 09:29 pm (UTC)
I know Roy's eyes are black. ^_~

Winry's eyes are originally blue.


Methinks there is foreshadowing in our midst. :D

ok.....ummm, I might sound like a *word that shall be kept to myself*, but I have to comment. if I didn't, I would die.

ok, first: dragonalchemist. though you seem to give the cover much color, what you lack there of is shadowing, proportions of the colors, and proportions of.....body-parts. now the side face view of envy is nicely done, but still, his hair is a flat color. reminds me of Picasso's trench coat portrait, of it being flat and one color. what you could do is do one color, then is the proper places, put a shade darker of green, thus giving it more definition. Also, roy and winry could use a little more curve in there faces. a skull, like a woman, has certain curves. you made both flat, one lined. if you change that it would look a little better. also Ed's hand. like i said, give it definition. it looks kinda flat.

so you did well. just give the faces more definition, create more color by shadowing over other colors for hairs and it would look very nice. like i said, it does pop out at you.

now for: tromkehra: I like your as well. though what you lack that dragon gave was color-pop, though you did give the characters definition. what i would say for you is to aim larger. I like how you did winry's dress. the shadow that was placed under the arm was put in nicely. but with markers, shading it so that it looks as though it was merging with the rest of the colors, is where it fails. but it's still a good start. though I do prefer charcoal and pastel-oils myself. pencil and marker work in this subject.

so for both of you. color, definition of the body and facial structure, shadow placement, and larger scale. all this works towards a better art-piece. it also helps give good cover pages to Dj.

good job, and remember: Chaos and killer kittys go hand in fugging hand. always.

Naw. You don't sound like whatever that word was. ^_~

Artists always love critique. Usually, people point out things that we've been trying to work on or haven't begun to work on yet.

Let me say this on behalf of both of us: We suck. XD (Trom totally agrees with me on this point. We've been discussing our crap cover skills. Heh)

Anyway, thanks again. It helps to have a good crit every now and then.

*gasp* I'm...I'm....

well one when i wrote that post i was A)in my prime art-persona, b) high on wax candy.

but i still thank ye for saying so. and liek i said sweet-pea, you have a good way of making something quite eye-catching. you just need to work on body structior and such. then maybe it'd look better.

Note to Trom: you make fun of me calling her sweet-pea i kill you.

also, how is it that I get into this community? trom keep discussing with me all of the *unspeakable* things you do to....mostly edward. and I am...very interested.

Chaos and killer kittys go hand in fugging hand. always.
