First of my prompt replies: cornerofmadness suggested Roy and Riza with Hayate.
I honestly have no idea if this warrants a spoiler warning. Does it?





I snuck in a bit of gratuitous shirtlessness, because Roy does not get enough shirtless scenes in the manga. I mean. At this rate, how is he ever going to catch up with Major Armstrong and Ed?

preview:

I tried to shade it manga-style, using a grid. Not crazy about that technique yet. I could've done that in ten seconds with a grey marker. But I wanted it to look as close as possible to the original style. I might go ahead and color these pics, too (the traditional way!)

Next up (I think): What exactly is it that the Queen of Briggs does for fun? (First I thought, sparring with Mustang. But I can't see any scenario that doesn't end up with her wiping the floor with him within the first minute... though I guess that would be fun for her...)

Oh, that's cute! I hope I'll finally have time to catch up, it's finished, isn't it?

Yeah, it just wrapped up and it's definitely worth reading to the end. The story never loses steam, I was on the edge of my seat for the entire run.

yay, these are so much fun. The one of Riza taking the picture of Roy draped like a cat over the couch covered in puppies is absolutely adorable. (and you can never go wrong with shirtless Roy)


eta - thanks for doing my prompt. I love them. (and yes hand to hand combat with Olivia, Roy doesn't have a prayer)

ITA *nods*

Aww, I love these! The art is beautiful - very reminiscent of Arakawa's style. And happy, relaxed Roy & Riza makes me happy - add puppies to the mix, and I'll be over here squeeing too bad to comment anymore.

And happy, relaxed Roy & Riza makes me happy

It's downright strange, eh, to see them happy and relaxed and not scowling or intensely focused (or sometimes smirking, in Roy's case)...

But I figured they deserve a moment like this. I can throw them back into the middle of the action later. :o)

Adorable! The grid work is nice.

Glad you like!
The grid thing is really quite a hassle. I suppose it goes quicker with a little practice, but I'll probably go back to my trusty traditional ways of coloring for now.

I did it once for Star Wars, as a manga homage back in the day and yikes... you can have it. I don't know how those people live. ;)

Roy is covered in puppies!! COVERED IN PUPPIES!!! There is very little in the world better than a handsome man covered in cute baby animals. I like the shirtless one too, and Riza there with the camera. They're just so adorable!

Anyway, I will stop getting exclamation points all over your LJ now.

Hehe. Yeah, maybe these don't so much need a spoiler warning as a fluff warning. :D

I printed them out, I think they really should be colored, the more I look at them.

For the record, I have not yet read 108 and I do not find this spoilery! I do, however, find it ADORABLE. *__* PUPPIES.

Hee. I'm glad you like 'em. :O)

Excellent, that's good to know.
