The Alchemist by yuumei The Alchemist by yuumei
Since I've been drawing a lot of girls lately, I thought I'd draw a guy to balance things out. This is some random guy I came up with and he has nothing to do with Fullmetal Alchemist.

His desk looks kinda like mine, except mine is messier XD oh and yes, that feather pen is writing by itself (like in Harry Potter XD)

Drawn and colored in Paint Tool SAI and texture added in Photoshop. I'm really loving how well the colors blend in SAI :D great program for drawing anime.

Out of Boredom, I created a profile for this Character :D

Nicolas Flamel
274 years
Raised in Prague, he early came in contact with alchemy. It soon became obvious that he posessed outstanding talent in this discipline. At the age of 16, he accomplished his first transmutation, and less than five years later, he accomplished what no alchemist before him had ever achieved: He created the philosopher's stone. Upon touching it, he felt a strange energy surge through his body, and his aging came to a complete halt. Trapped in the Body of a young adult, he started travelling the countries for the next 250 years. Due to his wealth, granted to him by the stone, he had no financial problems. On his travelt, he set out to learn all there was to learn, and he got closer to this goal than anyone before him. He has mastered the alchemy as a whole, and is skillful in both herbology and medicine. He also acquired several simple defensive and offensive spells, but relies more on his double-bladed arming sword with one blade made out of steel and one out of silver.
Skills, Talents and Equipment:
His Robe is enchanted to deflect weaker blows, physical as well as magical. His glasses allow him to detect lifeforms close to him(about 15 meters).
He has mastered almost all sciences and some fields of magic.
He sometimes still shows the mentality of a 21-years-old. Plus, his greed for knowledge is almost insatiable and somtimes makes him act overhasty.

Yeah, I have no life.

Of all the things that have to stand out to me in this INCREDIBLE artwork, I LOVE the clawed armrests. This is amazing. I'm in awe.

love the colors and attention to detail, would i be wrong in saying that there might have been some inspiration from yellow phosphorus? either way, the method of lighting cast off the bottle is amazing

this just might be one of my favorites insofar as mages and alchemists goes, just for its warm textures and the way the details are laid out to match the idea.

Wow, the detail and glowing effect are awesome. I love how concentrated he is on the potion.
kytesandfairies Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012  Hobbyist
I like the detail & the concentrated expression on his face. He reminds me of Thom the mage from the Song of the Lioness series, who has red hair and purple eyes. I found when I looked closer at the eyes of the alchemist, they were purple too.
Willuknight Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012
Wow, I'm blown away by this aye, I love the colours and the detail and the messy desk, it's amazing!

Is there any way I could use this work in a derivative design? I'm trying to find a few source images for a card in a nonprofit fan expansion for the Dominion boardgame. You would be fully credited and this would be for non-commercial use. Here is an example of the other cards we have done with art from other deviant authors: [link]
