Fairy Girls by Ami-Magane Fairy Girls by Ami-Magane
I am able to draw backgrounds. I just proved it to myself Yescrying The trick was to do the background first and then concentrate on coloring the characters. But damn, this took me three days to finish. Took me half a day just to set up the poses.

Anyway this idea came to me when reading the Fairy Girls manga. Sadly only Lucy, Erza, Juvia and Wendy are put up as main characters there. So then I just had to add Levy, Mira and Cana as well. I wanted to add Lisanna too, but I forgot Onion Boy 6  and when I remembered it was too late.

I also re-designed their outfits a bit. The influence on some of them is obvious. I also found out that I had had an idea like this months ago, but I never got to finish it. Here's the old picture:  Ft Girls by Ami-Magane Obviously it isn't as great as this one.

Now on to a suggestion.
If you're interested in FT fanfics you might love this fic. I found it by accident and fell in love with it as soon as I read the description. I've had a similar idea plague me for months, but I've never managed to write it out.

So here's the story by Hakari-chan One Wish 
Imma just paste in the description of the story so you guys know what it's about

When Lucy's spur of the moment wish is granted by a magical artifact, she finds herself unexpectedly saddled with Natsu's dragon slaying magic. It's a problem the likes of which neither of them, nor the guild, know how to contend with...or undo.

I love the idea a lot and the best part is that Hakari-chan has found the perfect balance between adventure, romance and daily occurrences. 
Seriously, you should try it. Also, go give Hakari some love, she deserves it for all her hard work. I would appreciate if you would.

Another quick question, since this is already a long description and whatnot. Would you guys also like to see a Fairy guys version? I know that it would be a lot more challenging, since they all are so buff and stuff.

I like your artwork. But since when Erza has the same tattoo as Gerard? Is that only in the Fairy Girls Manga? (I don't know the Mangas because I only watch the Anime)

Erza doesn't. If you look closely I gave all of the girls items or tattoo in Erza's case that their respective partner has. Lucy has Natsu's scarf, Juvia has Gray's necklace, Erza has Jellal's tattoo, Mira has Laxus' coat and Levy has Gajeel's bandana.

Hey thanks for the Llama!!! This one here is very good. I loved the characters. An advice that I give is pay more atenttion in the background. The ambient can make a lot of difference in a piece. The sky is not bad, could be better, but not bad. But the rock where they are sitting and the streets rocks are really bad. I know you can do better because of the quality from your arts, maybe you just got lazy on there xD 

My advice is taking references and try to make the background again. The sky collors are perfect.

Ami-Magane Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you :D And yes you are right about the rocks. If I'm honest when I started drawing this piece I didn't think about the background at all. I don't really know what exactly I was trying to do with it. I seriously do need more practice on it, I agree.

Juvia with her Gray-sama's necklace, Lucy has Natsu's scarf and Erza with Jellal's eye marks. All so cool and the background is perfect.

For someone who has trouble with doing backgrounds(I totally know the feeling) you've made a beautiful one. The colors give the picture I nice sunset feel, as if the girls have been hanging out together all day.

There are only two things I would suggest need a little improvement, Juvia and Levy's hair seems a little stiff, and I think the background would look a little better if you blurred some of the colors a little more.

Other than that, this is totally awesome! :D

And a Fairy Tail guys version seems cool, I say go for it!

Ah thanks a lot :D
So many people now had told me that it looks like the girls have been hanging out together all day, which is so nice 'cause when I drew this I just drew it without any thought xD if that makes any sense.

The hair :iconcryforeverplz: I'm bad at drawing hair and apparently it's showing. I can line art pretty decently if I try (and do a decent background), but I'm almost starting to think that I have to sell my soul to Satan to actually be able to draw hair. It's bothering me so much.
And I'm gonna be honest and say that I hate blurring, but I suppose some blur filter on the skies could have given more depth to the picture, so I agree with that.

I'm still struggling with the guys version. I know what I want to draw, but I don't really know I will achieve it. I'm just kind of stumped. I'm afraid that I'll fail and make the characters look stiff.

Don't worry, I'm not very good at hair either. Wink/Razz  Most things just take some practice in my experience.

If you want I might be able to help you out with the guys a little. Hug Since I tend to draw male anime characters more than female,  I have a little more understanding of their anatomy.

:iconami-magane:
Ami-Magane Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really do need tons of practice in drawing.

The anatomy isn't really the problem. I'm capable of drawing male characters. It's just...the poses man...I can't come up with anything dynamic, plus the composition. I'm trying to do something I haven't done before and honestly speaking isn't my strong point either, but I want to draw it so badly...

:icontheanimenut:
theAnimeNut Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well how about you watch the anime a little bit, and then pay attention to the way the guys usually stand or sit, and what their faces look like. It'll probably help a bit. :D

:iconami-magane:
Ami-Magane Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think the manga would be more helpful in that aspect, but yes I will totally do that. Actually I was already kind of doing that :lol: I seriously can't remember all of their feature quirks.
Don't worry I'll figure something out in the end. It might take a while, but I'll get there :D

:icontheanimenut:
theAnimeNut Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Here's just about what I picked up about how they act(I hope it helps a bit :D):

-Natsu is almost always in a stance that shows he's ready to fight or he's fighting Gray
-Gajeel usually stands erect, his arms crossed, and a scowl or evil smile on his face
-Laxus more often than not looks bored or relaxed
-Gray would either be smashing heads with Natsu, or looking a little bored and lazy

I think that's about it....Nod

I know about that stuff, honestly. I was talking about small quirks like the eye shape, face shape and the face proportions, body proportions. Without a some kind of reference it's a challenge to get them perfectly right. That's why the manga is a better reference material than anime. Anime tends to distort some of the quirks.

I'm no expert in drawing backgrounds either, but one thing I did figure out - it's that you should do the background first. At least then I try to put more effort into it xD
Also drawing from real life pictures isn't a crime, you can use them as a reference.
