Fanart - Two drawings of Ed  
Hmm~, guess what guys, today I bring with me happy pictures of Ed! Isn't this amazing? Though I have yet to draw any drawings of a completely different character....

Anyways, I have one inked and one digital drawing of Ed.

Rated G and PG, and no spoilers!

I'm just gonna say that I RARELY ink drawings. And I mean rarely. In my entire life, I've probably inked a total of 10 drawings. And when I say ink, I mean through traditional means, as in a pen. So yeah, I'm not very good at it.

Heehee, I read through some doujinshis, and I discovered that I really, really like Ed with super long hair. He's so cute! So as a result, I was compelled to draw Ed with a long fancy braid.

Hmm, I wonder who's giant shirt Ed's wearing.....

First drawing took around 1 hour, and the second took around 2.

Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you had any recs for fanfics that involve Ed's time on the other side of the Gate in the 2 years that he's gone, Alfons's thoughts of Ed when he first meets him, or fics of Ed coming back, and how people react to the new him.

Your inking is pretty. ^^

And i like the fishtail braid you gave Ed. ^^ I should learn how to do that... *has long hair, and normally sticks to normal braiding when braiding*

Aahh, I didn't realize there were different types of braids. *is ignorant of hair styles*

This is awesome.
BUT you need to draw more Envy.
You're just so GOOD at drawing.
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 03:39 am (UTC)
Haha, thanks! I'll draw more Envy, and some other characters too hopefully....

Oooo nice. I love Ed's expression in the second. :3

As for ficcage, inuyashanohime's working on one, To Find Shamballa, starting with the prologue here, you already know about ketita's Mirrorworld, and *cough*self-whoring*cough* I finished one up in October and am currently working on the sequel (you can find all of it here). They're all EdxHei because that's all I read.

And I shall check out those fics~

I love his manic grin in the first one, and how, well, sultry he looks in the second. (Whose giant shirt indeed!)
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 05:45 am (UTC)
:D Hehe, thanks!

Ed with the long hair is beautiful. He looks so pleased with it, and himself.

For post series fic, i recommend Friends and Lovers by Infinitesimi and it's continuation I'll Love You More. They are pretty much AU from the end of the series, but i really enjoy them. Very in character in my opinion, and well thought out. They contain multiple pairings, both het and yaoi.
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 05:50 am (UTC)
Ah, thanks! And I'll check out that fic!

The braided!Ed is really implying a few dirty things.

LOL. oh god draw more of him like that plz
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 10:42 pm (UTC)
Kekeke, I wonder what he's up to?

Will do!

I really love the way you draw! It's so nice looking.
You're awesome. Ed's awesome.
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 11:02 pm (UTC)
:D Aww, thanks!

*de-lurks* I have to admit, I can't complain when you're drawing lots of Ed, because I can never seem to get tired of him! The long braid is hawt, but Ed's expression makes it all the more smexy. (Maybe that's Armstrong's shirt. *BRICKED* AUGH BAD IDEA. Forget I said that!) Long story short, I love your art, and how much of it you've been posting lately. :D :D :D

As far as post-series fics go, my personal favorite is a trilogy (and an awesome side one-shot) by Jaya Mitai that begins with Perfect After All. Head's up, though - it's extremely plot-heavy, but very well done!

I also have to recommend anything by cryogenia (baka deshi on FFnet), if you haven't already read her work. My personal favorite of hers is At the Very Ports We Blow, which is her take on how Alfons and Ed might have first interacted and takes place pre-movie. I think she's the only writer to ever get me to read HeiEd just because I liked her writing that much.

OH, and CanaryNoir's Inextricable (and its continuances) are also very well-written post-series fics, if you don't mind EdWinry. x3

And sorry for flooding you with random recommendations! Dx I honestly didn't mean to at first!
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 11:07 pm (UTC)
:3 Aww, thank you! I'm glad you like my stuff~

Cool, I check out the trilogy!

I've pretty much raided through all of cryogenia's fanfics already. I really like her writing too~

:) No need to apologize! I like reading good fanfics, so recs are nice to have.

I looooooove the second one *nosebleeds*
(Roy's shirt, of course ;p)

Heehee, thanks~

ED! Stop stealing Alfon's shirts boy! XD

I think for inking maybe go for solid blacks rather than crosshatching, but it's still waaaaay better than anything I can do so I can't say much...
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 11:13 pm (UTC)
Hmm, that's what I was originally going for when I was inking, as you can see from the boots, but after inking that area black, I realized that if inked more of the shadows like that, the straps on the boots would disappear, which would be no good, so then I ended up going crosshatching crazy, and yeah.... The picture is the result from that.
Venusobsessed_love on May 9th, 2008 09:51 am (UTC)
Mm Ed looksgorgeous in the second one *_* And soooo cute yet crazy in the first <3
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 11:13 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, thanks!

I LOVE your digital art. Probably like, the best. The coloring on the second one really blows it out of the water.
Feriowindferiowind on May 9th, 2008 11:16 pm (UTC)
:D Awww, thank you! You're much too kind~

Aw, I love how you shade with pen! (It adds to the cute.)

I dunno who's shirt that is, but if Ed's looking at 'em like /that/... lol.

Feriowindferiowind on May 10th, 2008 10:44 pm (UTC)
:D Thanks!

I never get tired of seeing what you come up with! Seriously I agree with you on gate world fanfics - its so wide open and people don't seem to gravitate to it as much for some reason. I don't really have any favs other than what has been already listed. You are so amazing with your coloring techniques it makes me weep, and that teasing look is just so perfect <3
Feriowindferiowind on May 11th, 2008 02:04 am (UTC)
:D Aww, thank you!

I love fanfics about the alter world! It's just so fun reading about how people react to Ed, who obviously doesn't fit in at all. I especially love the fics where Alfons and Ed first meet. Ah, I wish there were more of those!
