For the record, this is what the manga panels look like when cropped and at wiki size:
While it's clearer that he's making it from the ground, it's not clear that the spear and the ground are made of the same things. As said, maybe the anime has a better version? Wish I could help, but the series never held my attention for very long.
Well, it should be episode 1 of the first anime, and episode 3 of Brotherhood, if that helps any.
The image isn't perfect but I say KUPIS. Maybe a two panel of the same scene or mid-transmutation.
That looks even more like he's just pulling it out of the ground.
He is pulling it out of the ground - but also using the ground as the material to make it in the first place. Is the second part unclear? Because that'd be an issue.
