Envy by Lokklyn Envy by Lokklyn
edit: tweaked some stuff on his face.

Envy from Full Metal Alchemist.

He is the win. My friend and I were having an argument over whether his hair is green or brown. I still say green because clearly, envy is associated with green, dammit. And if I'm wrong, WELL, HIS HAIR IS GREEN HERE, SO HAHA. If we're both wrong, and his hair is, say, black, then.. his hair is still green here, ha ha ha. Although, I suppose greenish brown is a possibility..

I adore the other homunculii (? - homunculusses? homunculus?) too, but Envy needs some limelight (hah, no pun intended. I think).. and some love.

background is fairly, umm, incoherent. I'm not really sure what I was going for, but it's a fairly typical "I-don't-really-know-what-to-draw-here-but-it's-better-than-nothing-at-all" background. oh, the red things are the red stone thingies. But they turned a bit liquidy due to my fanaticism for all things oozy (or something).

Didn't feel like drawing hands. Didn't feel like drawing legs. Lazy lazy.

Colors tweaked slightly (increased saturation) because my tendency towards neutral tones is starting to bother me.

Open Canvas 3 (initial sketch + rough colors), Painter 8 (detailed coloring). Estimated time: No clue. Worked on and off today, between a nap and a happy place, successfully avoiding studying for finals.

his hair is black in the manga and green in both animes.

though to be fair, he can have brown hair if he wants.

Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you

So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you'll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it ?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

As an Envy-cosplayer, I approve. :clap: First anime Envy's hair could be viewed as either a really dark green, or black with a green sheen to it (either way really, it's the same damned thing). Second anime/manga Envy tends more towards black hair (as far as I'm aware). As for the plural of 'homunculus', that would be homunculi. It's one of those words with a funky Latinate ending. (Language-geek, so sorry if 'Latinate' sounds a bit weird.)

But yes, this picture is officially Envy-cosplayer-approved!!! :XD: :boogie:

Omg. Envy. It wasn't until I saw him drawn so well that I realised how much I MISSED him. Lovely, lovely work!!

I love this piece. I agree envy needs some limelight....envy was pretty undeniably epic.
Lilithay Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012
One tiny comment: Envy's not actually a guy. According to the author he's supposed to be androgynous, at least in the manga and in Brotherhood (which was based solely on the manga with no alterations, so it makes sense). In the first anime though, yeah, he's a guy. x3

I agree that Envy's one of my favourite Homunculi (save for Selim and Greed), and I love the way you've portrayed it here. I always kind of got that sort of femme "I'm-way-more-awesome-than-you" impression from it's actions and general attitude, and the way you drew the eyes and face really reflect Envy's cruel, indifferent nature very well. You also managed to show just how beautiful it was supposed to be in this form; I like that your style is a bit less cartoony than a lot of people seem to use, and this is pretty much exactly how I'd picture Envy. And yes, I agree, the hair should most definitely be green. :)

Excellent work, keep it up. ^^

fma is fucking awesome
well i think it should be called fa because the name is offically: Fullmetal Alchemist

full and metal is one words so i guess that it would be fa but for the time being i will call it fma
Jetichor Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2009
i may be wrong but envy its a SHE its just she doesnt have any boobs at all wen i first saw fma i thought she was a man because of the flat chest but they called her doughter several times in te series
Rhi-R Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2010
Technically Envy is androgynous, neither male nor female ^-^ But he is referred to as male in the series and assumes the shape of a male most of the time, he just looks a lil girly cos of the clothes :P
Jetichor Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2010
oh wel the voice is kinda weird too
magicalhokum Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013

lol i kinda feel weird looking at her...uhm i mean him now
Rhi-R Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2010
Ahaaha I know, I hate that in things (often anime/manga!) when it's not really clear about a character and your impression of them gets messed up... :confused: =/

Well I guess the form 'it' assumes is male so I've always thought of Envy as he :) Pretty gender-confused Homonculus but still love him :lmao:
Jetichor Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2010
i feel really really weird because i thought she was cute so i may need i bath i feel dirty
Rhi-R Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2010
Oh nooooo!!! D: :( Gawwwwd I've done that before - thought characters were a cute guy and then they end up being a girl, I'm like ohhh =/ ... Ahhh well maybe you can still think of him as a girl cos I guess he could go either way!!!

Wah, that's... I cannot find the right word now, but the way you painted it is really amazing!
The 'advert' under Envneck tends to spoil the drawing a bit though, you should have put it elsewhere (nexhis wrist for example). But still, it looks fantastic!
