That's a really gorgeous view of the Rockbell house!

...and the snogging is very, very nice, too. :D I love seeing the hoodie - very nice touch - and how Winry's hair looks just a little bit mussed, like something else might've happened just before this kiss (Winry was walking ahead of Ed, he grabbed her arm, pulled her back and into his arms like this?) and the wispy, lovely clouds overhead.

Thank you so much for my belated birthday present!

Late reply is very late! Not sure what happened there, but thanks, I'm really really glad you liked it. ♥

Such lovely, lovely lines! It is obvious that you have spent a lot of time on this. Love the strong emotion in it too.

Late reply is late! Thanks! Actually, this came together really quickly! Two reasons: I didn't have any anatomy worries since I was pastiching a source photograph, and I used digital screentone for the shading, which is amazingly quick.

EEEEEEEE I love this. <3 I actually hoped something like this would happen in the manga (actually, I was betting Winry would jump him once he came home after the promised day. XD)

So where's Al? Taking the picture? :P
Jun. 6th, 2011 08:25 am (UTC)
Thanks! I was betting on Winry jumping him too. I'd give it two weeks before the jumping happens, max. I picture Pinako handing Ed a condom tin with his coffee and producing a spectacular spit-take.

Al is taking the picture and soon afterwards, running away as fast as you can on a crutch. XD

Woohoo, you go, kids!

Pretty lines. I like Winry's sandals, and her hair.
Jun. 6th, 2011 08:22 am (UTC)
Haha. Ed's feeling athletic. *___*

Thanks! Everyone is saying nice things about the lines of this, and of course I owe it all to the lines of the original photo! I imagined it was a reunion photo but on checking out its history I found the guy was just some dude who was running around Times Square kissing every woman he could see? The photographer probably had to throw out the photo where an old lady hit him with her handbag.

This is absolutely lovely! :) I love her ankles... and the details on her sandals. Every little detail, just right. :)

And I LOVE the reference photograph.

Thanks! Belated reply is very belated!

oh this is very very nice. I love the fluidity of their body and of course the snogging.

Also I like the brick wall.
May. 16th, 2011 06:27 am (UTC)
Thanks! The lines of their bodies were sort of dictated by the famous photograph I was riffing off (link in the notes, you'll totally recognise it when you see it).

Of course you like the brick wall. XD

Oh yay! Another end-of-manga panel Arakawa had to edit out added back in! Love the attention to detail and the manga-style shading (the clouds came out really nice!). The kiss looks great, as do the body lines and expressions. Wonderful!
May. 16th, 2011 10:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I like doing cheeky manga-style panels! That screentone takes absolutely no time to shade has nothing to do with it. I can't take full credit for the lines since it's a pastiche of the famous photo in the notes.

I like to think Al is taking the photo and Ed and Winry are going to howl with embarrassment and chase after him in a second.

Ooh, what a lovely dip! And beautiful backdrop to boot!

Ooh.... this is extremely nice. I really love the pose. You've captured your reference really well too.

XD Made of win, it looks brilliant - very fluid!
... Is Winry wearing Izumi's slippers? ;)
May. 29th, 2011 09:19 am (UTC)
Thanks! Credit for the pose goes to the original photo this is playing off. And Winry's shoes are the sandals she's wearing in the reunion scene in 108, in fact both their outfits are those exact outfits.

This is gorgeous! I love the kiss and how Winry's lifting her foot just slightly and Ed's hoodies and the background and EVERYTHING. <3
May. 31st, 2011 07:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Credit for the pose goes to the famous source photo in the summary.
