I bring fanart. Yes. More crappy fanart from me to terrorize the world with.

Pairing : RizaxRoy

Picture behind cut.

Originally done for the "Saishu heiki" theme of the Roy/Riza 100 themes (as a joke reference to Saishu Heiki Kanojou, where the main heroine turns into TEH Ultimate Weapon and features some really kickass quotes)....when it was done...well, it fits "I don't want to realize" better, so there it goes.

Photoshop, approximately six hours. And the backgrounds suck like nothing else. Bwar.

Comments and criticisms really appreciated. I mean, I want to stop sucking. XD;;;;;

NOTE : Roy's coat is that color because I was trying to go for the Manga!Verse, in which Roy wears a light-colored coat to Ishvar. Since we know for a fact that Riza's there, whereas while she's likely to be there in the anime.....it's not conclusive.

And yes, Major Mustang's in denial.

Re: T-that's---
Thank you! ^______^ (Although, "Awwww" is something a little weird for Ishvar. XD )

You all made my day. XD

Pretty ^_^ It kinda goes along with my theory that the only one Roy would ever show any trace of regret around would be Liza because they seem to have at least a best friend relationship...although I don't even know about manga Roy, because manga Roy seems to keep EVERYTHING he's feeling in and that confuses me. ^^;;

Yeah, I was astonished in the manga to find that the whole crew had been in Ishbar, considering Hughes says in episode 25 "If you didn't want to go to Ishbar you should have gotten a desk job like me" and the only shots from Ishbar just show the alchemists....and then there's the whole Armstrong angst thing. o_O

Well, well--!!
I'm more of a manga fan than an anime fan. And toward these recent volumes, Roy starts to show alittle feeling for Riza. You can actually see them giving the others orders together. Same gestures and all, making them so cute! :D

Riza is like always there watching out and protecting Roy. ^_^ I find them really cute together! :D

Re: Well, well--!!
I like both the anime and the manga for different reasons. The whole thing with Maria Ross though made me go "O_O"....I'm thinking there might be a good explanation for it later, but....

I love it how in the anime Liza implies blatantly that she'll get in a physical fight with Winry if Winry tries to do ANYTHING to Roy revenge-wise, and in the manga she yells at him that he shouldn't be there after he fries Gluttony. :)

Re: Well, well--!!
I have very limited time, so I can only reply to only one comment right now. Ugh. (Everybody else : I love you all. I love you all. *sobs*)

Thank you so much! *sobs* It's originally meant for a "Falling ashes and ruined towns" grey-ish feeling, but I couldn't manage that, and so it turned into "Flying embers and battlefields" instead. I so suck. ><

I'm more of a manga fan than an anime fan, too (being able to read Japanese helps as well) mostly because Roy and Riza are TEH OMG KICKASS in the manga. Much more depth. (And Ed and Al and Winry in the manga...I like them more, but they're not shallower or deeper in any way. Just different) But the anime also gains points for pacing (the manga TOOK ITS SWEET TIME getting to the plot, while the anime was fairly swift) and for the late plot twists which completely floored me.

So. I love them both. Outrageously. My poor sweet wallet.

And am I really the only one who don't think Maria died? I mean, the thing with Armstrong, it's getting a bit obvious....

Re: Well, well--!!
Oh yes. And the uniforms were HELL to color. XD;;
summerwolf on August 19th, 2004 03:09 am (UTC)
Manga!Roy kickasses that way. =3 (And yes, I was thinking for a long while whether this picture is OOC, since....well, you know. It's manga Roy. The-keeps-his-cool-while-Armstrong-breaks Manga Roy)

The Armstrong angst thing is just begging to be ficced. Alas.
ex_saraswath377 on August 25th, 2004 04:42 pm (UTC)
I'll have to do fic Armstrong!angst sometime.

I'll try to pull it off conceivably. XD

Excellent job. ^_^ You did some awesome things with the mix of colors on the uniform. Keep up the good work! I wanna see more of it. *salutes* xD
summerwolf on August 19th, 2004 03:10 am (UTC)
The uniforms were hell and a half. *laughs* I was cursing myself the whole time I did that. (Doesn't work so well with deep colors, myself)

Thank you! *glomps*

What can I say? Wow. Very touching (and warm and fuzzy, in that weird way) and I love the color composition. Go RizaxRoy. =3
summerwolf on August 19th, 2004 03:16 am (UTC)
(Warm and fuzzy?....okay, in that weird way). XD

Thank you! *glomp* And yes, go RizaxRoy. XD

That's just lovely and perfectly how I imagine them too. Plus I'm seriously in awe of your colouring, the warm reds make a particularly nice accent... I don't know quite how to describe it but it reminds me of a lot of Japanese artist' in a way. I really love it.
summerwolf on August 19th, 2004 02:59 am (UTC)
(The warm red is rather accidental, but I'm really happy you like it! ^___________________________^ )

Japanese artists?
