Restored Edward and Alphone fanart  
Hello again XD Once upon a time, I drew Ed and Al restored for you guys- now, approximately 3 months later- I present to you my latest revamp- not on DA, so you guys see it first :3

Ironically- this came about out of frustration about Deviantart being down ^^; go figure XD

Well, comments are always welcome- :3 Enjoy!

Maybe it's just the brown hair, but my mind doesn't process that guy as Al. He is horribly bishie though. He's also...prettier than Ed. *steals the bishie*

(er, sorry. I tend to be very honest...)

meh *shrug* just trying to put my spin on things. I've been pulling my hair out trying to copy styles, so I said "fugg it- I'm going to draw them MY way XD" Has Al been shown as he'll be when made normal, btw? I'm interested in references :D XD

Aside from his dirty sand hair and grey eyes, we don't have many clues. >_< I guess most people had a look at chibi Ed versus teen Ed and guessed about what teen Al would look like from chibi Al. There are lots of restored!Al pics around Jap websites. Yay Al! <3

I commented before LJ had it's hissy fit, so my comment got lost.

Kalika is right though. You can't just put a spin on a character with no bases. Why would Al have almost black hair? His hair is a sand blonde when he was a child, and Ed's didn't change. Why would of Al's? Also, Al's face is much more longer than Ed's, so making Al's face horizontal as opposed to vertical doesn't work. I mean, if you were to draw, I don't know, Britney Spears with short black hair, and a chubby face, would people know it was her? Most likely no. Because people pick up on basic characteristics.

In conclusion before I get too mean, next time, keep in mind Young!Al when drawing Al.

Some people change a lot though. Ever did the kid picture thing at school? I couldn't recognize several guys of my class. We haven't seen restored Al annyway, so she can draw him like she wants. I like her Al. He's bishie. He just...dyed his hair because, uh, he's hidding from the army! Or, nothing says Al would get his own body back. He could turn out a different person. He could be a homonculus! Heck, why couldn't he land in a girl's body when Ed tries to make him a new one? All humans start out female after all. Okay, okay, I'll stop with my crazy ideas. Just saying, I don't think we should enforce the idea that restored!Al can only look a certain way. It's the most likely outcome, but if we can't make up crazy theories and be original, it's no fun. :)

I love it. Although they are right. His hair is sand blonde like his brothers. I think al and ed are like me and my sister. My sister and I were born 11 months to the day and I cant say that Im older than her or whatever. xD Even though Al's the younger brother, he certainly looks older >_>;;; Anyway

Good job!!!
