Take a look at the artbook scans (plus, some scans that haven't been posted on this thread) in the FMA Art-Book III section in our gallery!

Cover of artbook



Also, if you pre-order through Animate.JP site, you can get a special slip-cover with the drawing done by Arakawa-sensei just for that and that goes over the case for this book.

Pics of front and back of box cover you get if you pre-order through Animate

[size=1]----

Found this scan on Baidu, which has a one-line advertisement about the artbook 3!!


On the Right side page of the posted scan, at the bottom, it simply says:

http://i52.tinypic.com/o5vr78.jpg Very nice pic of Ed & Al. ^^

And, this blog entry has some info about Arakawa's comments in the artbook.

Also, Arakawa seems to have made a comment on the future of Roy and Riza. Can someone translate it please? smile.gif


---------
ETA: v Thanks for the translations, Tombow! biggrin.gif So that comment implies that Roy and Riza can still be an item, they just can't get married. That’s great! ^^

Thank you, Michiyo-!! happy.gif

Here is the part of the linked blog as posted by Michiyo- above, talking about the Arakawa-sensei's comment on her Roy & Riza drawing:

(Warning!! Possible major Spoiler ahead!!)
QUOTE
アニメDVD/BDの2巻初回版特典BOX用イラスト(マスタングとリザのツーショット)へのコメント

>連載が終わった後、ファンレターで「大佐と中尉は結婚しないのか?」的な質問がけっこう来ました。

結婚しちゃうと、軍の規則で”上司とその補佐”ではいられなくなっちゃうんだよぅ。



<And, my quick translation of this blog entry>

(Warning!! Possible major Spoiler ahead!!)
QUOTE
Comment by Arakawa-sensei on her drawing of Roy and Riza for Anime DVD/BD vol 2. Special first-print bonus gift box:

> Arakawa: After the conclusion of the series, we got many questions from fans that were asking "aren't the Colonel and the Lieutenant going to get married?"

> Arakawa (cont.): [I couldn't get them married because..] because of the Military regulations, if they get married they can no longer stay as the superior officer and [his] aid....



So... that's like her (Arakawa-sensei's) round-about way of admitting Roy and Riza are an "item"? wub.gif


And for anyone being curious... more entries from the above posted blog, blogger's comment (Warning! Series Final spoilers! --->) on this pic

QUOTE
書き下ろしは、体を取り戻してから数年後といった感じのエドとアルだった。最終回掲載時のガンガン付録の時計の、図柄の候補だったもの。

対称的な構図で椅子に腰かける二人が描かれており、きっちりした服装で両者共に紳士オーラが出ていてイケメンだった。

試験管、インク、紙、マグカップの横に並んでいるのは皿と箸だろうか。並びがカオス。ご飯食べつつ研究しつつ、研究の記録を書き留めていたのか。

シーサーっぽい置物などは明らかにエドの趣味だ。舞台は、改めてリゼンブールにでも建てた兄弟の新居か、仕事場だろうか。

エドは手袋を両手にはめているが、右手首のあたりは生身の色

エドは懐中時計を持っているが、国家錬金術師の銀時計とはまた違ったものみたいだ。図柄がなく無地である...


<And, my quick translations of this blog entry (paraphrased)>
QUOTE
This drawing was done especially after the series conclusion. This was one of the candidates to be used as the image for the clock that was the bonus gift for the Shounen GanGan with the last chapter of FMA. It looks like several years after they have got back their bodies.

In the drawing, Ed and Al are sitting on the chairs in symmetric fashion. Both of them are well-dressed and looking gentlemanly and looking quite handsome.

Around them, we see a test tube, ink bottle, paper, mugs, and also a plate and chopsticks that are placed randomly, looking as if they have been eating in the room while taking notes on their research.

The statue that looks like Julius Caesar must be Ed's. IMO it's reflecting his taste. The place maybe their new house in Resembool, or maybe their new study/office.

Ed is wearing gloves, but we can see the flesh colored skin around his Right wrist.
Ed is holding a pocket watch, but it looks different from the State Alchemist's watch. It has no design on the outside, and the outside looks rather plain.




Also, looking forward to your report, A Pierrot's Aria! biggrin.gif
