Okay well I've gone to this site forever, finally decided to post something lol. A few months back I took one of my lesser attractive guitars...(Own 5 total, this was probably my 2nd favorite so of course I had to use this one).........and the original color was a pewter, tan, silver........kind of a mixture.....not really sure what to relate it to..........and I wanted to spice it up a little bit.........and being that I work at a graphics / sign / design shop.........I might as well use the resources and material I have to my advantage. Soooo, I spent several hours, redrawing the characters in the poses I wanted to use them in, using various pictures for reference off of this site and google, etc, etc........and freehanding what else I couldn't model off of................sooooooo all in all, after the design work was finished, I sized it up accordingly, cut the black vinyl, and stuck it right on and put my guitar back together lol. But anyway, here she is.


For those interested the guitar itself is a BC Rich Beast...........(Normally I dont really like BC rich but the bodyshape is killer and I love the headstock as well so this was a prime subject for this little Fullmetal project).






VIDEO

^And a video....sorry for the somewhat bad quality and audio here.....My brother's camera doesn't quite hold as much video as I thought so I just went and bought a $50 Webcam from Walmart lol.



There's another on my myspace there and a pic of my fullmetal tattoo I got a year and a half ago as well........but I wont litter up your board here with pics hehe. Take care.

@HeReTiK - Wow!! That is totally awesome!!
It's beautifully done, and I love the placements of Ed, Al, Lust, and the Flamel Symbol, with the way Ed's coat extends to the center, and Lust's arm extending to the long end of guitar!!
One of a kind, and nicely done!! Thanks for showing it to us!! happy.gif

Thanks all laugh.gif I've gotten a whole lot more compliments on the outcome of my car rather than the guitar, but then again I guess the car influence there is a lot more widespread in popularity than ole FMA. Hehe. But thanks....I may update this thread and post a pic of my tattoo and the tattoo my brother got a while back since both are inspired by FMA.

Haha, thank you. To save anyone the trouble of having to go to myspace and so I dont clutter up this with pictures....I'll just direct link straight to the photos of the tattoos.

My Tattoo. (FMA Symbol + Tribal)

My Brother's Tattoo.

FMA Permanently embedded into our skin, doesn't get any better than that lol.

The Car is something on my myspace.....not FMA related at all so I wont post it here. www.myspace.com/stephen197666 For if you're that curious lol. Dont want to break any rules here tongue.gif

Also, though I haven't taken a picture of it, I also have on my back windshield of my car......all three tattoo's I have....cut out in white vinyl......so that's the only remotely FMA part of my car.......is the fact there's a white version of my Tribal FMA tattoo in the bottom half of my rear windshield lol.

Heretik: Can I just say that your guitar is a work of art> you did a wonderful job free-handing the characters; the overall placement of the characters works quit nicely as well. I really like your tribal flamel tattoo (my brother would sissy out if we both got tattoos) and your car is seriously cool.

Thanks guys. To be honest, free handing wasn't even the hardest part. Thankfully with the stylus pen in our vector art programs here.......if I make a mistake I can always CTRL+Z it and go back over.....(Unlike if I were painting something like this lol).........the hardest part after running the finished product through the vinyl cutter....was weeding out the excess black adhesive sticker......and trying not to accidentally pull up the parts that were intended to be seen lol. Exacto Knives ftw.

(I think the approximate time it took to draw was only maybe 2 hours....if that...............where as prepping it....[weeding out, applying tansfer tape, and sticking it on after disassembling my guitar's bridge]....took probably 3-4 hours lol.

Woahhhh, nice. The contrast between the characters in black and the colour of the guitar really help the characters pop right out at ya when you look at it.

My favorite part is probably Lust. :3


Now let's see a video of you jamming on that killer thing! >:D

Will do lol......I've got my brothers digital camera....which does video as well, so I believe I'll record my take on the "Fullmetal Alchemist" theme song (with solo, yays), by L'Arc en Ciel (Ready Steady Go).......hehe.......and most likely upload it late tonight or tomorrow afternoon. smile.gif Fun song to play and at least you guys will recognize it since you most likely dont listen to the same stuff I normally play, Hahaha.

Added a video underneath the pics.....Kind of awful on my part but psh...it's not like I play for anything BUT hobby lol.
