Merry Christmas! Given that my family typically opens up our Christmas presents on Christmas Eve (late in the evening, though), here's my Secret Santa 2012 gift for... *drumroll*
Alphonse13! :D Let me just say that when Jen sent me the PM and I saw whom I was drawing for, I felt really honored ^_^ After all, drawing for one of the event organizers... that's pretty big. Not to mention you're also a One Piece fan. That was also a plus :D
Ace was pretty high up on your wishlist, alphonse13, and given your name, I figured it might be fun to combine the two series of One Piece and Fullmetal Alchemist. Ace was able to infiltrate the Marines in a cover story, so I figured he could try his hand at sneaking into the ranks of the state alchemists.
I apologize that the background's nothing fancy and likely grossly inaccurate, but there's Ace... in all his cartoony glory...
...It's not that I don't like my very cartoony style; on the contrary, it makes for images that look close to the cartoon they came from... at least, I think so... oh well. I like how Ace turned out :) And the uniform's not bad either.
Well, with all that said, I hope you like your gift! ^_^
And if you're wondering why the image is so small, ehhhh... I blame myself and Photoshop Elements for that ^_^U
