Chapter 104 Wallpapers and Icons  
Yeah, I had fun with a couple of the panels from Ch 104.

First, Wallpapers:

001 002 003
004 005 006
007 008 009

Now? Some icons (not as many of these, I'm afraid, sorry)

001 002 003

And a banner (of sorts).


The rest of the wallpapers can be found HERE
All my icons can be found HERE
And my Photobucket account is HERE

The usual applies:
Concrit is love, comments are awesome
Credit unnecessary, but don't claim as your own
Hotlinking is ze evil!

Stuff you probably couldn't care less about:

Excuse the Geek Mythology references. Chapter 104 just sounded (in a strange way), like the story of Zeus defeating the Titans, and the Sacrifices just made me think of them as Zeus' children.

Wallpapers #7 & 8 are weird looking because I used just the outlining of Scar and added drop shadows to create an almost "on glass" kinda feel. The color in #7 is beneath the outlining (did that make sense?)

So, forgive the multiple versions of two of these. I was having way too much fun playing around. But I would really like to know what you think of them. Love is welcome, but I am very open to concrit -- is there a way I can improve what I'm doing?

ETA: I am SO sorry! Somehow the cut code got deleted as I was editing this entry. Feel free to sic a short, snarky alchemist on me, if you feel it's necessary.

--Oops! No. I misspelled cut.

So remember kiddies: Never LJ while you're under the influence of massive cold and flu meds. **dies of embarrassment**

wow, awesome! I especially like Scar. My first reading of ch 104 was on the train, on my iphone, and the train has wicked sketchy reception, so it was stuck on that first page forever liek woah, and I just kept staring at Scar and thinking about how awesome he is! To see it in color is v exciting...! ^_~

Thanks! Can you tell I was enjoying myself way too much there?

Disclaimer that I'm a new dork with tastes that disappoint her professors, but I really really like the soft lines in 107 and 108. 107 especially. (Or shadowed through glass, that makes more sense.)
Not optimal for cluttered desktops like mine, but very very pretty. *pets and saves anyway*

(Do most people have cleanish desktops?)
fractured_chaosfractured_chaos on February 13th, 2010 08:57 pm (UTC)
In my case, it's probably a "no" to the clean desktop. But I tend to rearrange my icons into groups and spread them all over the place. But... I have old eyes, so really busy wallpapers just don't do it for me.

And thanks for the kudos on 007 and 008. It's nice to know that what I was attempting to do, I managed to do :D

Very nicely done!

I'm glad that someone else saw the Greek mythology thing going on there, that's what came to mind too. That and all the global lore regarding dragons swallowing the sun (and usually during a solar eclipse).

I keep thinking that I'm going to want to review my Greek Mythology a little better and figure out which role everyone is playing. XD

....I need a life XD

Thanks! Being stoned out of my gourd with cold meds actually made it easier to make these. Probably due to the hallucinations XD

Lol, luv the whole Zeus theme, especially with Gate!eye inserted. XD Might snagg some icons, will credit. ;)
fractured_chaosfractured_chaos on February 14th, 2010 07:28 pm (UTC)
Thankies :D

I absolutely love the coloring on your icon.

The Gate!Eye was a screenshot of the episode (can't recall the number right off-hand), where Ed opened the Gate inside Gluttony, with a little bit of fiddling to make it look less like the episode and more like... something else. XD

You know, I just realised something. Remember way back in FMA:A finale when Envy turns in a Hoho/Ed look-a-like? Apparently, Arakawa liked the look, since she's siccing it on Father. ^__^ Only, like improved, especially the sixpack. Though it's totally wrong for such a twisted being to look like that. *.*

If anyone is going to make an MMV of this chapter, they just have to use Sephiroth's theme (Carmen Burana~ish). ^^

Well, isn't that anime rule #1? The really evil, twisted, bad guys always look hawt! XD

Don't know which manga you mostly read and it's a bit matter of opinion, see most evil guys I come across are either totally androgynous, not attractive or just plain ugly. :p I think I just haven't found the right manga yet (FMA aside). ^^
fractured_chaosfractured_chaos on February 15th, 2010 03:39 pm (UTC)
See? Proof-positive that I don't know what I'm talking about. XD

Actually, I haven't read much. But I think that's probably obvious.
