Hello, everybody! I knew when I started a journal that I would be horrible at updating it. I was right, I am horrible at updating it! I was thinking of spamming everybody with my thoughts and feelings about all the manga that I waste my time reading and ~a certain series~ I recently read, but I honestly don't think anybody would be interested. Poor [livejournal.com profile] aamalie , [livejournal.com profile] wuhdemah  and [livejournal.com profile] bookelfe  know. HOWEVER, warning: I will spam your f-list with fanart soon, because my shippy self will not be contained!

Also, I apologize! I was supposed to have finished this ageeeees ago, but I didn't, and now your Holiday cards are going to be so late, I am sorry! I will put in extra effort on your sketches, and know that I am thinking of you and wishing you Happy Holidays IN TIME.

As for the memes:

Holiday Love Meme, which would make me super happy!

Whoops. I never thought I would say this, but I have gotten caught up in my real life. INTERNET, I STILL LOVE YOU. I forgot to crosspost my [livejournal.com profile] fma_ladyfest  art to a million different places in time, and I am doing it now instead. I just realized I still haven't finished my 'simple drawing' requests, and I will do so in the near future. I miss having all the time in the world to draw and read and be on the Internet.

Anyway, on to the art! It is Mei and Xiao Mei, back home in Xing.

She has bookcases, a window and papers strewn all over the floor. )

This, too, started as an aimless doodle, and then turned into this. Just a portrait of Al and Mei, probably sometime after they return from Xing. Goodbye, fifteenth icon space. I do not regret using you up with Mei.

DUE TO MY PITIABLE STATE OF 15-ICON-NESS I CAN'T EVEN USE AN FMA ICON FOR THIS. Sorry! Have LotR/Doctor Who crossover instead, with applicable (ish) theme.

I managed to shock and surprise myself with the ability to produce a coloured picture this fast. I have no idea how this happened!!! I am going to try to guess and say it was the music's influence and Mei's awesomeness. And I'm definitely not going to complain.

This one is for [livejournal.com profile] rosemusek who requested Mei and Xiao Mei. The picture is pre-canon,  and here Mei is leaving her homeland.

Goodbye to Xing )

As requested by [livejournal.com profile] aamalie . I really like this one, which is why I did not attempt to colour it quickly, even in simple black and white tones. I want to finish it properly, eventually. Meanwhile, have the lineart! I am sorry it is so ridiculously fluffy but you see, I really ship this. In my mind this is set somewhere around the time that final picture in 108 was taken.

By the way, I am taking suggestions for the background! My dream background would be vaguely turn of the century buildings, but I feel that is impossible (I have no desire to relive drawing buildings in perspective with all technical accuracy). So far the top suggestion is A PARK.

EDIT: Here it is, with colours. CLICKY

I'm done with the first two. At this rate I'll make good on my promise and get all of them done within a week or so! 8D This is turning out to be a great exercise. Because I don't expect to be producing very detailed pictures I feel I'm letting myself draw more freely, in addition to trying to make these 'sketches' more effective without all the crazy 'refinement' I'm used to (which, really, is probably overdoing things).

Anyway, here they are!

P.S. I am tired of my stupid journal's layout not being very good for pictures. Does anyone know how to make it so that when you follow a cut/go to comments it turns into that default layout?

This was a WIP far longer than it had any right to be, having been born as a 3am doodle. Went really fast at first, but then I got lost in the details, or distracted by it. Ahaha, self, you are so silly. Whatever, it is done now. I apologise for the awkward poses, the blatant shipping and the lack of kissing.

I FINISHED. I finally finally finally finished. This took absolutely ages. I've been working on it for at least two weeks on and off most afternoons, so I'm glad it's done. Very glad! I'm rather happy with it all things considered, though.

About a month ago I finally read (and watched) Fullmetal Alchemist. I had known of its existence for years, but for a series of really stupid reasons I had, so far, avoided watching it. Everyone insisted I'd love it, that it was the sort of thing I'd like, etc. They were right. IT TOOK OVER MY BRAIN, and when I saw [livejournal.com profile] anime_abc 's Super-Mega challenge I just had to sign up for FMA (and Kaze Hikaru, but the icons for that are still in the works).

Now, I have simultaneously too many ideas and not enough! And they are all over the place. Half these icons are crack and the other half are my attempts at serious or pretty. And most letters have alts. Enjoy?

Icons, icons, icons! 8D )
