This world needs more Ed sexiness. Especially Munich!Ed. <3 This is a wall that comes up right on time with Winter. Since the original scan was a pain in the ass to retouch ( http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/58867/ ), I've decided to vectorize Ed in all his splendid glory with Illustrator (sorry Al but your colours didn't fit the background I planned to draw lol). If you've noticed and watched the entire serie, you'll know it's how he is dressed up at the end and how he will be in the upcoming movie. And yes, he is older (Imma no pedo anymore whooho XD). I found the picture really melancholic and inspiring.

I went for a background inspired by the world and time Ed was "teleported" in, which is ours in fact since it happens in Munich in 1921. The buildings were traced from a stock photo and so was the zeppelin. I had hard times finding my reference pictures with the perspective I wanted. It's not war time but the city is still on guard with zeppelins patroling the air. The moon wasn't really necessary but it gives a dramatic side to the picture so me likes. :3 Many FX to blend the elements together.

It's been a while I didn't make a wallpaper and I'm pretty proud of how this one turned out. 3 days work. Sure it's no "magical scenery" but I'm sure true FMA fans will surely appreciate it. ^^ Comments and favs welcome, as usual. <3

    Awesomeness :D
    Love the whole Munich setting especially with all those lights and that big old blimp in the bg. And great job on the vector too. Keep it up!

    This is just beautiful.... Pretty Pretty Ed! I can't vector because I have no artistic skill on the computer whatsoever... and I only have a mouse... *is sure you'd need a tablet* This is just wonderful!

    oooh.....that's so good.I should have scanned the picture better >< but anyway thanks for the hardwork and for sharing

    I'm getting intrigued about this series just from the walls I see here on MT. This wall, Sandy, is fantastic. You've captured a mood perfectly, and your custom touches (not to mention the vectoring) made this stand out as an example of how to do a wall. Favorite!

  11. Quistis88 Nov 21, 2004

    Very nicely done! I love the background and the scan. They suit each other. Excellent job! :D

    If you could see me now, you would see me with my mouth all the way down to the floor...This image is so wonderful...you must have put so much work in it. I love the expression on his face and you made the image nice and clean...not to mention the backround, a sort of chaotic melancole to it....thanks so much for this, this is a wonderful piece of work.

    This is quality work as usual. While I personally don't find Ed sexy, I really like the atmosphere of this wall... the Zeplin flying overhead, a nights fog in the air, Ed's breath, the searchlights, etc... all great stuff. The vector is also beautiful. The only thing that bothers me about it, is the snowflakes... they're all the same and for some reason I find this oddly distracting. Other than this small detail a fine fine job. +Fav for sure. :)

  14. akai Nov 22, 2004

    ^____^ A fine piece of wallpaper.... it's very beautiful... I really like the misty and moody background... it suits this picture of Edward very well. Excellent job as always. *favs*

  15. Angeh Nov 22, 2004

    Ed with ponytail, Ed looking somber, well... *head explodes* Rare to see him so good. :3 The merge with Ed and the background is seamless, and quite impressive. It looks as though he's been there all along!

  18. juanicths Nov 22, 2004

    Great wall idea. The vector job is great. On issue i have is his hair, the pony tail looks like it's sitting on something. I can't wait for the FMA movie. More FMA walls please. =)
