FullMetal: Foolish Endeavor by MilesTailsPrower-007 FullMetal: Foolish Endeavor by MilesTailsPrower-007
The lyrics are from the fan-translated English version of the song "Brothers".

This drawing was actually a gift for someone, but for my DA submission I digitally removed the "To" and "From" parts, as well as the little note. I also typed up the lyrics written on it, whereas the actual drawing just has my handwriting. I was trying to obtain an extra "finishing touch", if you will, but that didn't work out, so I did without. If I do manage to get that little extra thing, I'll definately update this submission to include it.

Alphonse is blond like Ed in the manga, so don't tell me I did his hair color wrong. :P

I did this without visable lineart, so it kinda took awhile. I had to erase lines as I went along. It kind of took awhile. It took the duration of one song on the CD I was listening to just for me to color his sleeve. XD

No critique, please. This was a gift, and I like it as is. =O

Also, do you guys like it when I add the little "tags" in the title so you know when it's not Sonic art? I hope that helps somehow.

Tranlation is sweet, though. Translated lyrics are rhymed, so original meaning a bit missin'. Just a bit)
