Artist Comment

I rather like this uncharacteristic FMA image of the military folks in a totally un-FMA atmosphere. I mean, the FMA world is based off of Europe, yet here they are in a typical Japanese high school graduation setting. Plus, Roy's getting pwned by a dog. Very excellent. After extracting/cleaning/repairing the scan, I repainted the background in Photoshop based on the original image, minus the building, which kind of made the image claustrophobic in my eyes. Decided to go for the sepia-toned old photograph style, which I hadn't done in quite a long time. The wood grain texture is blended from several photos I took of some desks.

    Well, the wallpaper is really nice. First of all the scan in itself is hilarious, and somehow having it seem aged in this wall makes it even better. I suppose you aim was to recreate the feeling of a sweet/comic memory, still the aging effects you applied also somehow make it nostalgic. And I mena, it really express these feeling in a wonderful way. The title is nice as well. I'll fav this one for sure. A small consideration, while nice looking, somehow the wooden background is not perfect. Maybe it's cause of the jpeg compression, but somehow if you look at it really closely it's a lil pixelated in some parts. Still, a definite favorite. Way to go :D

    Sugoi, what memories! ;)
    i just love your wallies, Tama!! Yeah, the scan is definitely funny! This'll look great on my desktop,and if only I could fave it! :(
    Awesome job! :D

    I love your idea for this wallpaper. I like the sepia tones and the turn of the century feel. Nice work.

    Great wall! The aging effects are well executed and the placement of the text is well done. The over all feel of the wall seems appropiate and the border of the photo is well done (in that it adds to the effect of an old picture.) The background however seems... wrong somehow. I don't know, just not very wooden. Maybe it's just me. Great job anyhow!

    hahahaha, Roy gets pwned by the dog, thats awesome! the girl (i forget her name right now, its been a while since i watched FMA) looks really good, nice job over all too.

    It's too bad I can't fav this...but this is great. I always wanted to see that image as a wallpaper. I would have loved it even more if it hadn't been made into a photograph, but it still looks awsome.

  12. saranron Aug 27, 2005

    It's great. I love how you make the scan looks like an old picture. I really reminds me of my good time with my old friends. For some odd reasons, I think this wallpaper gives off a bit of the sad atmosphere, not in a bad way though. I can just imagine Hawkeye or Colonel Mustang sitting at a table looking at the picture, remembering their own good memories. Hope you understand what I mean :)

  13. shinorei Aug 27, 2005

    Uwah, a picture wallie. I love those, just like that FMA newspaper you did few months ago. It was great! :D
    Very authentic. ^^ You deserve the rare-FAVS~! :D

    Wow this is beautiful as most of your FMA walls and yeah wanted to wall this image but it just didnt work out....Anyway great work on the grunge style....Love it! :P

  15. chibi-lizard Aug 29, 2005

    as expected from tama-san :D another nostalgic moment in fma nicely portrayed :)

    the scan itself looks very cute and funny XD the concept of making it look like a old photograph plus the sepia tone makes the wall remembers me of their funny moments ^_^'

    overall .. i wubbb the grunginess and the idea :)

  16. sdelacruz Aug 29, 2005

    But what about Broch, Ross, and Gran? (And Hughes, but he was in a bubble anyway) XD

    Anyway... I always love the old photo kind of effect and yours is awesome. :D It looks great, and I love of original scan you used, too. ^_^

    thats really cool love fullmetal add to fav list nice job.

  18. UndyingShadow Aug 31, 2005

    another great FMA wall tama, you seem to be king of this category. I like the idea behind this wall, its a very cute scan.

  19. Elves Aug 31, 2005

    Very nice work. I really like the sepia colors, they do make it seem older - something from the past. Who knows maybe they were all transfer students at one point in their lives! lol ;) The grain of the desk and picture are well done, but they both look similar to me. A little differention between the two would really set the picture off. Maybe have the pic's texture not quite so heavy as well. It detracts from the picture itself even though it does add to the aging of the pic. I'm torn really, I like it but...eh these are just opinons afterall, right? So overall, excellant work and I really like the idea and construction. Thanks for sharing!

  21. LeeAnn Sep 01, 2005

    wow! what a very excellent work!
    the military! tnx a lot for your effort!

  22. ScribbleKitty Sep 02, 2005

    I think it looks beautiful. Everyone's personality shnies through, so it was a great scan to use for a nostalgic piece like this. The aging looks very realistic and I like the displacement of ... theres a word for it, i know... well, i like that the scan was ina more japanese setting instead of european. Deffinately adding to the faves!

  23. whatthebleh Sep 02, 2005

Nicely done. Btw, how come Hughes is not in the pic? Neway, keep up the good work. This definitely goes to my fave list. ^-^ Aightz, later dayz. (",)
