Glowing Candle by isthmi Glowing Candle by isthmi
Velvet drapes, glowing candles
Silent whispers of words inside of my head
The night that comes, it waits for me
Lift me to the ending of another day
I'm haunted
Tell me who you are. I am spellbound
You cannot have this control on me..

Lacuna Coil - Spellbound

Yeah. My first post. This is my half of an art trade with ~De-Bauchery. She wanted me to draw Ed and Noa from FMA. Hopefully you like this. Sorry i am rusty at colouring ;-; i'm a bit disappointed my first post is fanart but happy i got my art trade part done ^^

Yes, it is, unfortunately. It's saddening and frustrating to receive unkind words about Noa when I write her--especially since I interpret her in an unusual way that many readers don't take the time to understand. I think Ed/Noa are adorable together, though!

FWIW, on Fanfiction.net, I have a series of small, shippy Ed/Noa stories. (Though it should be noted that most of them stem from my big CoS-alternative fic "Blood Ties", where the history between them unfolds very, very differently...) Here's my profile there if you're curious. :)

For sure. There was so much terrible hate in the fandom way back. Glad that's behind me.

I think they're great as a couple too! I also interpret her a lot differently than her usual character. I guess I sort of added to her personality from what was in the anime.
And sure I'd love to read your stories! That's awesome because I could only find a few on livejournal/wherever I got them a few years back LOL. THANKS~

If you prefer reading on LJ, my stuff is on my fic journal there, too. (And there you can see the full version of the wonderful Ed/Noa art from a friend that I based one of my stories on!) [link]

I hope you enjoy my work!

I'm so happy I found you, awmaigawsh! Thanks so much, I will enjoy reading your stories! You've rekindled my love for ExN! :) Are all the same stories on both sites?

Yes, I cross-post everything to both places. (And AO3 as well, but I'm not a great fan of that site.)

Always glad to know another Ed/Noa fan!

Sounds great, I'll be reading this summer. Can't wait to read them all! I might even illustrate a few because I get such inspiration from fics... I hope you wouldn't mind if I did! :)

I was wondering when you were gonna finish this! All of the colours fit together great, it's easy on the eyes. The lightning looks cool too.

Hmm.... Well since it's stylized (anime) I don't really want to say too much about it? I'm wondering though, if you have any trouble at all with shading? Or is it just the style? It seems very limited in terms of lighting and depth. I feel like they could use more shading on their faces, and maybe some more drastic tones because of where the light source is and how bright it would be. I like to keep in mind that wherever there is light, there is shadow. Another thing that helps is to think of people as three dimensional objects. The nose/cheekbones and chin stick out farthest on the face, so they would receive different amounts of light. But because it's anime, I'm not sure that applies here? Soo I dunno... it's up to you what to take out of this long and possibly pretentious comment XD I guess another thing would be a more detailed background? But I know the frustrations of backgrounds and they're not always necessary.

nah i get what you're saying XD and it doesn't sound pretentious. I wasn't sure how to shade the faces "correctly" so I didn't really do much with that. I wanted to add more blue hue to their skin and such but at the time wasn't really sure about it. I wanted it to have more drastic shading and with the style even I'm sure it's more possible but I dunno x_x
