Here’s a translation of the bonus sketch pages of the big FMA volumes Faith posted earlier. Not a huge amount of info in them, but make of them what you may…
The Colonel’s crew, no.1
"The Hawk’s Eye" Riza Hawkeye.
Skin: #61 Tone
Early design for Lt. Hawkeye.

Another very early sketch. Again, too young.
spark gloves, early design.

Some of Central’s military men.
Includes early designs for Captains Ross and Focker.
earliest designs for Ling. (1)
I started to design him around the same time as Ed.

initial designs for Fu
That demonic look. I envisioned his final moments from the first design stages.
Scrapped idea for the cover to TPB #20.
Greed (“Guririn”) and the Chimerae.
Edit: Figured out the last one.
Mustang and the gang as cats?
Can’t remember when or what I drew this for.
For whatever reason, there was a really realistic Pinako next to this.
