Sketch dumps of this trio of dorks. I love them so. Ed is my favorite, but for some reason Al and Winry come so much easier. Oh well, Ed just HAS to be difficult.

So I don’t know where to start with my breakdown of alchemy, so I’m just gonna start with transmutation circles.

There are two parts to a transmutation circle: the actual circle, and the matrix drawn over it.  The circle captures the energy, making flow around.  Now, that energy has nothing to do, so it would just sort of flow indefinitely, until you break the circle or something.

What the matrix does is tell the energy what to do.  It controls the flow of energy, giving it little pockets to collect in, or creating areas where it flows faster, etc etc.

Think of it this way:

Say you have a large, round dish of clay.  Draw a circle in that clay, and pour some water into it.  Swirl it around.  The water is the energy, flowing in a circle.  Endless potential, right there, just waiting to be tapped.

Now, draw a simple matrix in there.  Just, like, a square that overlaps the circle or something, I don’t know, get creative.  Twirl the dish around again, and the water will now flow differently.  You’ll see areas where the water collects, and you’ll see areas where the water moves much more quickly.  It’s no longer the simple flow around a circle.

Now draw some more matrices.  Get crazy.  Put in stars and swirls and hexagons and whatever you want (keep it fairly symmetrical though, or else the balance is off).  Twirl the dish a few times after each matrix you draw, and watch how the flow changes.

That is essentially a transmutation circle.  It directs the path of energy so you can harness it to do whatever it is you’re trying to do.

Just don’t ask me what each little matrix does or how you get the energy in there in the first place.  I have no idea.

this post was added recently, and has a lot of info on all the matrices.  I’ll probably take a deeper look at all those, and see how that plays into my explanation here.  it’s a really cool post too, so you should check it out.

just wanted to have both posts together.

Author: kate7h

Summary: ‘The feeling of the rushed breath pulling and pushing in and out of his lungs was amazing. A little painful, but in a good way. He could feel. And that was all that mattered to him in these moments. He was weak, and fragile, and so much more human than he’d felt in so long.’ Oneshot set a couple months after returning to Resembool.

I drew this last night, and then died. Ed, Winry and baby! Quick question, what names do people like for Ed and Winry’s children?
