Pandora and her boys by Alphonse--Elric Pandora and her boys by Alphonse--Elric
Pandora arranging for someone to take a family picture of her and her boys. What those people are doing in the background, I can't say. I'm just the artist.

Wow, this project turned out to be more epic than I could have anticipated. Armor is not... easy, by any stretch of the imagination, to draw or color. I'm satisfied, though, how it turned out, in the end. This one was really important to me to pull off right. I've been determined to finish it!

Gift for mum! I'll probably draw another version with human!Al, too. In fact, I will, just as soon as I clear out my current list of requests. For now, here's this! <3

Thanks for making me feel safe again, mum.

She said, it was better than yours. I guess she can supposedly teach you, but she'd have to charge. :\

I go over the entire lineart with markers first. Here's the back of my page, so you can see: [link]

The only exception to that would be people with fair skin, or things that I want to remain white. I don't touch those areas with marker at all. I only use colored pencils there.

I usually layer the markers, going over the whole picture twice to make sure everything is thoroughly covered before I move on to the pencils (after it's dry, of course).

When you use the pencils over the marker, the color turns out all bright like this!

Of course they're jealous! It's so obvious now! All that have is that weird dinosaur flag thing. They don't have a loving family like ours. <3

Thanks for the comment! It brightened an otherwise horrid week.

The only thing that can rival it right now is the Al/Sorrow/Pain one.
