Alphonse's Tears (Contest) by SweetxinsanityxSarah


"Now here I am again, trying desperatly to figure out a way to do the impossible. But I'm a hopeless idiot.
All this time and I haven't grown up one bit. I thought
maybe the rain would wash away some of this gloom that's following me. But right now every drop that hits my face
is even more depressing..."

~Edward Elric FMA Brotherhood

"I don't even get that much, without a body; I can't feel the rain hitting my face. That's something I miss all the time. I want to get my body back soon brother. I just want to be human again. Even if it means going against the flow of the world and trying to do the impossible...."
~Alphonse Elric FMA Brotherhood

Theme: Trisha's Lullaby

This is one of two entries im going to enter into yuai77's contest: "Moments of sorrow". I would have to say if one is seeking out very sad heart wrenching scenes, my top suggestion besides wolf's rain would be Fullmetal Alchemist and Brotherhood. Both contain some real tear jerking scenes in my opinion. One that stuck with me the most was the scene with the conversation you see above. As Alphonse spoke staring up at the sky, a raindrop hit his one eyesocket and streaked down, looking like a tear. That defiently made me alittle teary myself, you cant help but feel bad for the little guy. Being stuck in a body like that, unable to eat or sleep or even feel things. Yet despite the body he was damned to be in, he never hated Edward for it, not even a tiny bit. You just have to call him saintly for that, or what I call him "A gentle giant". Like a mini Iron giant from another movie I watched when I was little.

I do hope this at least gets a placing, I worked rather hard on it, plus it's my third time drawing Alphonse yey. :3

View and comment, it will make Alphonse happeh. And you know you want to see that chibi happy hampster face of his. x3

SweetxinsanityxSarahAw thankies LDD xP I really didnt put that much into the detail like you would think. Just a few drops here and there and then coloring it in carefully. I am surprised that this too made the popular section o3o

CuteFox300That moment made me depressed I swear DX Same with my mother (She loves Al) And I commented! Where's Al's cute little chibi hampster face? X3

SweetxinsanityxSarah on September 24, 2010, 1:36:41 PM

SweetxinsanityxSarah on
SweetxinsanityxSarahYush my mom thinks Al is cool too. She keeps mistaking him for a robot though and I have to keep correcting her that he's a soul bound to a suit of armor. xP

And I shall remind Alphonse to drop by your page for commenting lols.

CuteFox300 on September 24, 2010, 3:30:30 PM

CuteFox300 on
CuteFox300I think I explained to my mom that he was a suit of armor before she even asked so she never thought that XDD She DID think that he was a girl though (Damn you Maxey Whithead and your bad voice acting)

Yay!~ XDDD

ShadowPrincess1982This is truly touching. The coloring and shading are beautiful and the eyes really do show a great deal of emotion. I haven't seen Brotherhood yet, but I have seen FMA and I totally love that anime. It's so touching and sad, but it even has it's happy funny moments too. I'd have to say FMA is one of the best animes and you did such a fantastic job on this. I really hope you do get a placing in the contest and even hope you win. Best of luck and great work! ^_^

SweetxinsanityxSarah on September 24, 2010, 1:35:04 PM

SweetxinsanityxSarah on
SweetxinsanityxSarahAw thankies and yeah I am rather impressed with the shading job. Especially with the tear, it came out soo well. And the eyes even though they were simple to draw and color brought out soo much emotion. Such wonders a simple rose colored pencil can do. x3

xNayamashiixDarklingxAwwe, Sarah, thats really good and I do have to admit, FMA does have sad moments...depressing really.
The one you should have done was with Nina and Alex when in Chimera form 'You promised you'd come play with me' I cry every time.

SweetxinsanityxSarah on September 24, 2010, 4:36:23 AM

SweetxinsanityxSarah on
SweetxinsanityxSarahYeah I would have, but that would have been wayyyy too obvious. I wanted to go for one of the more rare sad moments. xP

xNayamashiixDarklingx on September 24, 2010, 6:19:29 AM

xNayamashiixDarklingx on
xNayamashiixDarklingxAhh yes, that is good too...considering what you did is a rare moment...
