A Landscape of Scars
One of the comments left on my last submission suggested that I should draw the other combatant in the story I was illustrating; Ed. The bug bit so, of course, I had to do it.
In the story, 'Shades of Gold', Ed is 30, Al is 29. The previous illo was supposed to illustrate a scene from the fic, but the story mutated after I finished the original lineart. It didn’t match the fic anymore, but I still figured it was worth finishing. This piece was drawn to balance out the Al pic and is thereby even more removed from the original fic than that one was, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. :)
