FFXI - Paladin's Duty by pika FFXI - Paladin's Duty by pika
My contest entry to BG's art contest with theme "Pride of my job". Didn't want to submit this until contest was over.

And if I can read, I got 3rd place :love: but *sniffle* no ffxi concept art book for me ;; Would have been awesome.


Heheh, that reminds me that I noticed sum little mistake in the version I submitted to the contest XD I had forgotten to color one part of the shield so now it's fixed. Bothered me the whole time since I noticed it :rofl:


Hmmhmm. Yeah, Proto-Ultima is such a fun fight :heart:


-lineart: pencil
-colors: OC3
-editing: PS6

Another beautiful piece from you. :3 This picture really captures the PLD job and its importance. This picture really gives off a feeling of wanting to protect some one or some thing... But seriously, there is just something about PLD Elvaan that is just hawt~ x3

Gimp, where's your aegis? Haute?

Gosh.

Just kidding. :P Can't say I've never included the joytoy in a drawing because it was shiny, so I'm not one to accuse. >_> Anyways. BG contest huh, is the prize getting removed from the gimp player thread? Kidding again! Congrats on third place, I think its a great illustration, I love the way you make ffxi look a tad more dynamic than its awesome 2003 graphics really allow. :D

OH OH have you seen Dark Ixion? One word: shii-iiiney! And TRAMPLE-ey.

Hehe. Hauteclaire would be nice XD (mesa doesn't do HNMs) I have the habit not to draw what I don't have. Though.. I cheated myself a bit, I dun have Koenig Schaller, abj. sure.. butsomeretarddoubledtheahpriceforcursedpart so... :XD:; Thanks. I wonder what that Onion music will be :3~~

Haven't spotted Ixion yet, since I hasn't been in past much lately. Oh well time for that comes anywees! Hohhoh!

Yeah someone doubled the price of the cursed thingy for adaman hands when I got it a few months ago. 30k to 120k! Ok double? I lied! I got a friend to just make mine. :D He broke the first one and LOST THE CRYSTAL! But when he told me he made me freak out. I'm blabbering! Ahhhhh!

And onion music? >_> the piano thingy cd to be released?
