kristensk: Inuyasha's tweakable ears (tweak)
[personal profile] kristensk
Blargh! I've spent the last few days half out of it thanks to allergies and such, but I think I'm finally winning. That or there's a lull in the pollen. But, I can work with that!

The allergy energy drain has made for very unproductive days, but I have gotten some sketching done. Mostly attempting to illustrate this little scene from [livejournal.com profile] jordannamorgan's fanfic Family. Please, please feel free to point out all eleventy billion things wrong with it. Al is slowly driving me to distraction since I know there's something wrong, just not exactly what. And, something weird is going on with the angles of Ed's book, but I can probably badger someone into holding a book for me.

And, of course, I finished "Inuyasha: The Final Act". And, the finale was everything I wanted.

So, yes, long before the end, "Final Act" had won me over. It began as a poorly paced trainwreck, settled into being Inuyasha as it should be and ended with absolutely everything I wanted and then some. The final battle was given its proper due, and nothing was rushed. The fights were excellent and, at points, possibly showcased better animation than Inuyasha usually sees. And, the epilogue... The epilogue was perfect. I absolutely squee'd when I saw that the anime had one-upped the manga and not only given Kouga the epilogue he needed, but they even remembered their original character, Ayame, and included her too. It was the perfect send-off for the series. But, you know, while the story is over... I still think they could probably squeeze in a movie storyline set back during the quest for the jewel. Just sayin' ;)

EEEE, how wonderful! *bounce* Thanks so much! (I was actually thinking that I'd ask for such a picture this December at [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. *g*)

The thing that may be bothering you about Al, though? His helmet is missing its breaths (i.e. the slits under the eyes). :)

Eh heh... it's been fun to play with ;) I desperately needed to practice multiple characters together and I wanted to do more FMA, so voila!

And, actually, Al's helmet is missing several details as are his legs. I tend to get into the details once I'm fairly sure the anatomy and layout are correct. But, thanks for the reminder! Because goodness knows I do forget things like that (what do you mean T-Bone has whiskers?).

Well, thank you! I'm sort of still "learning" Ed and Al, so it's nice to know I'm getting something right!

Thanks! It's awesome that everyone thinks my thus-far-quite-messy sketch is cute!
