ok, i kinda get it now.. so i guess that in Sai's drawing Basil uses the surrounding elements/life forms combines them to make/summon a creature of some sort... (<-- i can understand that) and in Doodles drawing she uses her ring to manipulate brainwaves? here's where it's confusing to me.. to my knowledge brainwaves aren't elements (could be wrong).. and in her drawing, she isn't combining anything.. she's just manipulating something..

i thought alchemy is basically: element + element = something?

my apologies guys/gals i'm a noob @ FMA .. maybe i just won't do this one  :(

The underlying principle for alchemy is that in order to attain, something of equal value must be given. Like with my tin can example; the can is the material value where the circle is controller and the alchemist is the catalyst and interprets the transmutation circle. When Ed and Al tried transmuting their mother, they found out the raw chemicals that compose a human body and attempted human transmutation and failed.

Brainwaves, although more complicated, can be controlled by matter and creating electrical signals. Doodler's ring would be like the transmutation circle and she would be the device that interprets and controls how the ring behaves.

My example would be a little easier. Although my character's sword helps him catalyze the reaction, he doesn't rely on it. If he wanted to, he can kneel down, draw a transmutation circle, then clap his hands to the ground to start the transmutation of his golem. The reason he uses the rapier is  because he doesn't want to kneel before anyone as a noble and touch his body to the eartyh. Instead, he uses the rapier to inscripe a transmutation circle into the ground and then stabs it into the ground to start the reaction.

ok one more question: wouldn't you have to be within the circle to manipulate the brain waves for example? or at least touch the person with the ring?

i totally get the tin can theory.. and Sai's character's ability.. i even read some of the manga too.. and it seems that one would have to touch or be within the circle to change something. IE: touch an arm, makes a blade.. touch a metal rod, makes a machine gun, a pencil within the circle, makes a banana, etc.

There are three ways that you can bypass this.
1) Have a philospher's stone which allows you to play god.
2) Already have the circle inscribed and controlling the transmutation to be over a distance.
3) Having crossed over to our world and realizing the truth behind alchemy like Ed does.

cool thanks, glad you liked it.. it took me awhile to make.. but, it was a great learning experience to say the least..at one point i didn't know how to unlock a certain panel and i was really close to whipping my pen out the window!  :o lol .. now i guess i have to practice inking and maybe coloring soon..

oh and about "Zero no Louise" .. are you referring to Bridgets looks or personality similarity? again i have no idea what that anime/manga is about  :Embarrassed: lol
