The time is nigh, let a contest begin!
We all love Edward and Alphonse, it's a given. They're the primary focus of our series and we just can't get enough of the two brothers. But it takes a lot to have a well rounded set of main characters; like a great supporting cast! So in honor of the characters that helped to shape Ed n' Al into the guys we love, let's celebrate them!

The contest begins now and the ends the 18th of December, with a five entry minimum required by the 12th. This journal entry will be updated whenever anyone enters a new piece. To enter, upload your piece and either leave a link to it in the comments below or send me or the group a note with the link.

So to state it simply, feel free to create artwork of the Mustang Team, Father and the Seven Sins, Papa Hoho and Trisha, or even Winry and the Rush Valley team. Those are just some ideas you can roll with, whatever you create is up to you. Just ensure that Edward and Alphonse are NOT the primary focus of the piece. They can be in it, just not as the centerpiece.


1. :iconfmabigfan:   Farewell Partner by fmabigfan

2. :iconmarifuu:   The name's Greed! by marifuu


The rules for this competition are simple:

1. No stolen artwork.
2. No yaoi. No yuri.
3. No genderbending.
4. No crossovers.
5. No copying of original artwork. (This includes screenshots.)
6. All entries must follow the rules listed on the group homepage.
7. All entries must be made for the contest and must be submitted after the contest announcement date.
8. Side characters must be the main focus of the piece, even if Edward or Alphonse are present.

Rules are subject to change.

We have three great artists who have volunteered to help out with prizes. Please support them by checking out their galleries! :party:

:iconhaydenmaye:     :iconbeastmastersam:     :iconsofonisbasaki:

:bulletred: The first place winner will have their choice of one of the three, as well as a year-long feature on the group homepage.
:bulletgreen: The second place winner will have their choice of the remaining two artists.
:bulletblue: The third place winner will receive a prize from the remaining artist.

Good luck to everyone entering and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
It's been a while guys... a really long time. There have been a nice steady flow of entries coming into the group and there are new members all the time, but there hasn't been any action! No adventure! No anger and rage inducing competitions!

So let's fix that.

Coming soon, there will be a Side Character Contest for which we need prize artists. So, if anyone would like to volunteer, that'd be great. We need at least three or four people, and if you're willing to volunteer please leave a comment below or even send the group or myself a message about it.

As far as the actual contest itself, it will not be started until we can have at least three confirmed prize artists willing and ready to go. The contest is based on Side Characters in FMAB, so contestants will have the liberty of basing their entry around any character that isn't Edward or Alphonse. It will be an Art Contestant, with a possible literature contest coming soon after depending on the popularity of this contest. Contestants will have 3 weeks to get their entries in, and then there will be a three day voting period at the end.

Also please comment if you're interested in participating, since it's been a bit of a struggle in the past to get some entries in! Anyways, I hope this was short, sweet, and to the point. Hopefully we can bring some life back into the group!
So some of you who have submitted entries to be featured may have noticed a slight delay. Typically I try to have them within the group within 24 hours of submission, however there's a slight problem now. I have recently moved and will not have internet any time within the next two weeks to possible month. So I'm doing the best I can to get access to internet whenever I stop by a library or something. Though you all may notice that your entries might not go through immediately, I will get to them.

Also, if you have submitted something recently and the entry expired before I could approve it, please feel free to resubmit and I will gladly send it through. I'm sorry for any trouble this has caused.

Group Info

Welcome to FMABrotherhood, a group where all fans of the Brotherhood series or manga can have fun! We welcome all new members, so feel free to join!


Q: "Why can I only submit to featured?"
A: All artwork is submitted to featured, then later copied by an admin to its proper folder. This is so that everyone's artwork has the chance to be featured on the homepage, and so that nothing is misplaced in the wrong folder.

Q: "Why is there no yaoi/yuri allowed within the group?"
A: This group was created with the intentions of following the manga/brotherhood storyline very closely. Since there are no yaoi/yuri pairings within the series, it is not allowed within the group. Canon pairings only.

Q: "Why was my artwork not accepted within the group?"
A: It was probably rejected because it did not follow the rules listed on our homepage. (Listed below.)

Q: "How do I submit my entry to a contest?"
A: Simply leave a comment on the contest blog page with a link to your entry.

These are the group rules.

:bulletred: NO INNAPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR. We'll be very lenient on things, but some actions we will not stand for.

:bulletblue: NO YAOI/YURI. NO PAIRINGS OTHER THAN CANON. All pairing artwork MUST be canon! Such as: EdXWinry, RoyXRiza, AlXMay, etc. Yaoi/Yuri and awkward pairings - EdXRoy, or WinryXEnvy - are NOT allowed!

:bulletred: NO STOLEN ARTWORK. If we found that your artwork is really not yours, we will immediately remove it unless you have permission.

:bulletblue: ONLY FMAB RELATED MATERIAL. Do not try putting in some artwork from other shows, this is a strictly FMAB group. (artwork from the 2003 anime is allowed, SO LONG as it consists of characters that also appear in Brotherhood {like Edward, Roy, etc.}, not someone like Dante)
Also, any artwork from the movie CoS will not be accepted; i.e: Alphonse will not be accepted if has pony tailed long hair, or is wearing Ed's cloak, or of Roy with an eye-patch.

:bulletred: NO MOTIVATIONAL POSTERS. As funny/awesome/epic as they can be, we would like to keep them out of our gallery.

:bulletblue: NO SCREENSHOTS. They're awesome and all, but not really YOUR artwork. It's the animator's art. So please, no screenshots.

:bulletred: NO GENDERBENDING. We would appreciate it you keep characters like Ed as MALE and Winry as FEMALE.

:bulletblue: NO CROSSOVERS. Please, keep the artwork FMAB only.

:bulletred: ACTUAL ARTWORK. If someone submits something that's obviously just a recolored picture, a drawn over picture, or something that's just not really art, it will be declined.

:bulletblue: NO BBI ARTWORK. Bluebird's Illusion does not follow the actual story-line of FMA as portrayed in the manga or in Brotherhood, so it will not be accepted.

:bulletred: OCs ARE NOT ACCEPTED WITHIN THE GROUP on the grounds that they are not actually used in the manga or FMAB storyline. The only exception to this is within artworks or pieces of literature that need to create a "random person" to do something that an already existent character cannot, or will not do (such as Julia in the Milos movie.)

:bulletblue: NO COPYING OF OFFICIAL ARTWORK. ALL artwork must be original in concept. THIS INCLUDES DRAWINGS OF DIRECT SCENES WITHIN THE SHOW. If you want to draw a scene from FMAB, ensure that it is original and not an imitation of the animator's work.

:bulletred: NO WIPs. All artwork submitted to the group needs to be a COMPLETED version of the piece so as not to flood the folders with WIPs.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact wolfhorseluvr12

i have a piece i'd like to submit but I'm not sure if it fits within the rules or not.
It's only fmab characters, but i dressed them all as playing characters from wizard of oz, so would that be permissible?
