We Are Broken by CalamityChemist We Are Broken by CalamityChemist
Edit 12/02/2010: Guys, I'm so glad you enjoy the picture! But please don't distribute this or use this for wallpapers/mashups/designs without permission. Even if you plan to credit me, PLEASE ask first. (I'll probably let you use it!) This one keeps being used without permission. :( Thanks! :heart:

'We are broken
What must we do to restore our innocence
and all the promise we adored?
Give us life again
Cause we just want to be whole...'
-'We Are Broken', Paramore


New art? What is this?!
I did this picture on a whim after listening to the aforementioned Paramore song (hence the title). Not a big fan of the band, but that song's lyrics relate to the Elrics eerily well...so of course, I had to name the picture after it. I just had to. (Kidding, I didn't have to. I'm just insanely lazy).

I tried a softer, more painterly style on this one, so yay for trying new things...? Yeah, I'm not really sure how I feel about this piece. The lineart was promising, and the coloring could have been so much better, but I got so lazy...and it was such a nice day and I wanted to go outside but I forced myself to stay inside and finish this...and...baaawww. My opinion doesn't matter though--if you guys like it, awesome. If you hate it, also awesome. I think Edward looks alright, but Al looks terrifying, and I swear that was an accident. (Dear Alphonse--I'm really sorry about making you look like a godless war machine. I hope we're still cool and that I'm still invited to your birthday barbecue. Love, Jenna)


Because you're, like, my favorite, I made you a little treat. DESKTOP BACKGROUND VERSION HYEAAAHH!

Hello could I please download to use as a wallpaper?  And personally, I like that you made Alphonse look so fierce.  There tends to be a bit of 'Ed is tougher than Al' in the fandom, while I see them both as badasses.  Pretty sure Arakawa always said Al was the better fighter of the two ;-)

This is really deep...they're so young, yet they've been through more than most adults in any world..... Why do all worlds have to be so cruel???

Just wondering, but on the desktop version, (which is my desktop :D) there are some words in the backround. What are they?

this is driving me nuts >.<

Here's what it says!

"Where was the equivalency then? What have we ever gained from our losses? It's always been a one-way current, just a series of us giving to the void. Everything's been taken from us."

I'm glad you're using it for your background. c:
