Gods of the Jazz Age in colour, courtesy of Mr Wilson.
Pre-order THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #1 at your local shop if you want more, obv.
(You may notice we’re making a bit more noise about it. Basically there’s a couple of weeks to go before the final-cut off date for shop orders, so the hype machine takes a step up a gear, alas. But hey - fun stuff to look at, eh?)
((We are soooo neeeedy)

This looks fantastic. Preordered weeks ago and so should you!

FMA translation for Faith

Here’s a translation of the bonus sketch pages of the big FMA volumes Faith posted earlier. Not a huge amount of info in them, but make of them what you may…

Enjoy. 

The Colonel’s crew, no.1image

"The Hawk’s Eye" Riza Hawkeye.
Skin: #61 Tone

Early design for Lt. Hawkeye.
Big eyes.
I intended to give her a darker skin color, but gave up on it since Scar and the Ishvalans were going to be introduced.

If
. a spark,
. something flammable, and
. oxygen are present, he can transmute flames.

[The Flame Alchemist]
. Military
. Colonel rank

These designs are from when the uniform wasn’t quite pinned down yet.
Too young.

<- Some earlier designs had him smoking.

 spark gloves

(bottom left)
Another very early sketch. Again, too young.

(bottom right)
spark gloves, early design.
I was thinking of a material like flint [to produce sparks].

Some of Central’s military men.
Includes early designs for Captains Ross and Focker.

(center)
earliest designs for Ling. (1)
I started to design him around the same time as Ed.

(bottom left)
Ling character designs (2)
Something felt off, so I scrapped them.

(top right)
Ling final designs.
I added an air of irresponsibleness.

(bottom right)
initial designs for Fu
That demonic look. I envisioned his final moments from the first design stages.

Scrapped idea for the cover to TPB #20. 
Greed (“Guririn”) and the Chimerae.

Edit: Figured out the last one.

(top)
Mustang and the gang as cats?

(bottom)
Can’t remember when or what I drew this for.
For whatever reason, there was a really realistic Pinako next to this.

Stopped by comics ZIN on lunchbreak to look for a ABe Yoshitoshi book he ran out of, and almost got myself lost in all the do doujinshi there. I&#8217;ve used the store for obscure Manga, but never touched the domain section&#8230; This is the only one I purchased today, it&#8217;s black and white and basically like a children&#8217;s book with text and illustrations. So, so cute. Only 315 yen too!
