My schedule for October this year is really tight. Mostly work related tasks that require lots and lots of time and perhaps even staying at hotels to be on time on the next places. Additionally I’ll have one week of school/training with exams at the end that I don’t want to fail and will have to study a bit in the evening. Not to forget I’ll also be away a few weekends for music making… and and and…
All that together sadly makes it impossible for me to participate in this years #inktober challenge. MAYBE I’ll draw one or two pictures now and then.. but not like during the last two years where I successfully finished the 31 days. This sadly won’t work this year. I’m really unhappy, yet I cannot change it.
Same as last year I got the chance to get my hands on some FFXIV items that I want to give away to you all! And this time I thought I’d start a gleam.io page to make it easier for all of us (mainly me with the selecting of the winners XD )
Follow the link up there and you will have the chance to win one of the following:
FINAL FANTASY XIV: DUALITY ARRANGEMENT ALBUM (Blu-Ray Disc)
FINAL FANTASY XIV BABY BEHEMOTH PLUSH WITH CODE
FINAL FANTASY XIV ONLINE PLUSH [CARBUNCLE EMERALD]
One of three drawings of your character (digital)
Winners for each item will be selected randomly and will be contacted by me over the registered email address once the competition is over. if you are not answering the email within one week, a new winner will be selected and so on.
Because these are physical goods, the winners will have to tell me their actual name and address where they would like the prices to be sent to.
WARNING: Although the codes that come with these items were confirmed by SQUARE ENIX to work with EU, NA or JP versions of Final Fantasy XIV, I cannot guarantee that this will indeed be the case. The items were “leftover” goods from the FINAL FANTASY XIV Fan Festival in Frankfurt.
While I will cover for shipping and will try to fill out everything correctly for customs, fees may will still apply depending on the country. I apologise for that. I cannot be accused for anything after the package left my hands and is with the distributor.
Recently with all these different videos about the history of Final Fantasy XIV and why it had to become “A Realm Reborn” I checked all my old hard drives if I could find any videos from 1.x
There were thousands of screenshots but sadly not many videos. We never thought that the Eorzea we knew was going to end and vanish as it did. Now I regret not having more. But I will gladly share with you here what I have.
Recently I thought myself, how could the title scene of FINAL FANTASY XIV look like once STORMBLOOD is out!? So I made a little mock-up in Adobe After Effects of what I predict that will look like in June~
And here is the video just for the title without me talking~
The art challenge is still going on but it shifted a bit! Let me explain please!
For the first ten days I made videos for each picture and you can still find them on my YouTube channel. However the views were below what I hoped to achieve. After the first few videos getting moderate views it sank to a low that I don’t really want to mention. I’ll link all the videos down here in the article.
This was one of a few reasons why I decided to move the challenge away from YouTube. Spending time on cutting the videos and making voice over and everything without getting any people to watch it is just really upsetting and demotivating.
Also the other video series did suffer from me not having enough time to cut them and upload them to YouTube.
So because of that, the challenge is now only running on instagram, twitter and tumblr. So make sure, that you follow me there to get the latest updates till stormblood!
Last but not least, here the latest recap of the videos and pictures I made, 84 to 72 days to go!
