Hey, Guys!

I`m new at this forum, althought i`ve been a FMA-Fan since months.....
(And sorry for my english, I`m Austrian^^)

So, here`s one of my circles...
The arrows should express the output energy, the (I just call it button) in the middle represents a part of The Gate, its for summoning, saving and splitting the energy up to the 3 Arrows.....

Cool circle!

I've tried to draw some transmutation circles, but I always need a reference. And a ruler.

Hey, thx!^^

I thought a bit about the circles, and Squishi-Chans Circle is refered to the old alchemy. Its not the same alchemy as in FMA. Mine is just a expression of myself..... ;-)

Cool!
I'm so uncreative when it comes to circles.... XD

Hey, don`t worry^^
The first time I wanted to draw a circle I thought: "I cant do that..." but I mean its really simple. I decided to draw on the computer the lines are perfect and you can add cool effects.
If youre sitting there and think about what youre expression of a circle could be, you just have to draw. Make a few circles some lines, some stars and its looks like a real transmutation circle. You only have to think about the meaning of your circle.
So, thats it!
Hope you can be inspired by this post.....

The graphic was made using Corel Paint Shop Pro. The two Latin verses inscribed within the circle are biblical (John 3: 14-15) and were chosen for their relevance to the Fullmetal Alchemist series.

Well, there are a lot of people that see the trasmutation circles as work of art, or just as interesting drawings. There are another groups that make circles to express themselves, their flow of energy; and there is another group that just make this circles because them are interesting.

Have you ever done one?
I just did this one...what do you think?

well i see your circle is for flame and all your energy is more outward good job
i want to know what u use? tongue.gif wink.gif wink.gif

I spent all of school play practice today drawing one on the back of my script. now a bunch of stupid teachers think I'm a devil worshiper or something. Just another reason all schools should be bombed.

ya me too but tell the hole alchemy to the science teacher u know cuas most of reall alch. is chemastry

I thought I might post about how to draw a transmutation circle using a ruler and compass. I know all the young'uns these days use the computer, but you can't use a computer to draw a circle on the ground. XD There's already a good thread here about the design of transmutation circles, and I don't have the alchemical knowledge to tell you what shapes or symbols to put in your circle. Nature Path Alchemist comes to mind as someone who could help you with that. But I do have plenty of mathematical knowledge, and I hope to share with you the lost art of geometric construction. It used to be part of geometry classes everywhere, but they no longer teach it in many places. So if you get caught drawing transmutation circles in school, you can try to pass it off as geometry homework. wink.gif

To do these you will need a compass and a straightedge. (It is possible to do constructions using compass alone or straightedge alone, but they're much easier to do using both.) The compass you'll need is the type that draws circles (not the kind that finds north) and looks like a letter A or V and has a point on one arm and a pencil on the other. For mid-sized circles (1-3 feet), get a teacher's compass, the kind designed for use on a whiteboard or chalkboard. For larger circles you can use a rope or string as a compass (make sure it's not particularly stretchy) or even use your own arm by placing your elbow at the center of the circle with the pencil or chalk in your hand, and swinging your hand in an arc, moving your body around the center as needed to get all the way around. One of the earlier FMA-1 episodes shows Ed Elric using a long chalk holder to draw a transmutation circle on the floor; this would also work well as an improvised compass. For the straightedge, you can use a ruler, yardstick, board, piece of cardboard, or pretty much anything with an edge you can use to draw a straight line. If your forearm isn't particularly curvy or muscular, it will do nicely as an improvised straightedge for a circle about 12 to 18 inches in diameter.

You'll want to go here first and teach yourself the basic constructions if you don't already know them: copying a line segment, copying an angle, perpendicular bisector (this site calls it "line bisector" but it also constructs a perpendicular line at the midpoint), equilateral triangle, inscribe a circle in a triangle, and circumscribe a circle on a triangle. ("Inscribe" means to draw a shape inside of and touching another shape; "circumscribe" means to draw one outside.) That site also has the construction of a pentagon inscribed in a circle, which is the basic form of the Nationwide Transmuatation Circle. This site has a diagram showing how an inscribed square can be constructed easily, if you're using squares. To construct a hexagon, hexagram or anything else that touches the circle in six points, you can use the simple principle of marking off segments equal to the radius around the outside of the circle; and to construct an equilateral triangle or anything that intersects the circle in three evenly-spaced points do the same, but use every other point. You'll want to practice these several times until you understand how to do them.

So to make the Nationwide Transmutation Circle, for example, here's how you would do it.
1. Draw the outer circle.
2. Inscribe a pentagon in it.
3. Find the midpoints of the sides of the pentagon using the perpendicular bisector construction.
4. Connect the midpoints to form the inner pentagon.

It is interesting to note that the heptagon (7-sided polygon) that Ed used in human transmutation circles in the original series is not possible to construct using ruler and compass. Maybe that says something about human transmutation... smile.gif

Thank you, sarahbn! biggrin.gif
Just for our curiosity, (assuming we master how to draw "beginner" transmutation circles, as described on your post above ^^) could you tell us how to draw transmutation circles with heptagon? tongue.gif

Since it's impossible to construct a heptagon with ruler and compass, the best we could do is to approximate one. The central angle of a heptagon is 360/7 or about 51.4 degrees, so you could probably get a good approximation by drawing a radius of the outer circle, then using a protractor to measure off the central angles from that radius and extending them to the points where they touch the outer circle. Then connecting those points will draw a heptagon. The reason it's only an approximation is that it's notoriously hard to use an ordinary school-grade protractor to measure degrees to that kind of accuracy.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write up this tutorial and sharing it with us, Sarahbn!

I may have to invest in a compass and try my hand at constructing a transmutation circle at some point! I wish I had one of those big ones for chalk like the teachers had in school, so I could go outside and draw one on the ground. xP
