Another picture of my Monk between commissions, this is also going to be the first speedpaint video I’ll be uploading to my new Youtube channel next week! Sometimes I think I draw this character too much, but I love her design ;_; also can someone come up with titles for me pls I suck so bad

This took 8 hours to create and was done in Photoshop, I wanted to make it 4 hours… but… I got carried away, lol.

Part 1 of 2 (Click to see Part 2)

I played with the /sneer expression earlier and this meme-like non-sense was born. XD I’m having a bit of a hard time with the last 6, but they should be up tomorrow.

Also, I’d like to make a quick disclaimer that these are a joke. :x Please do not take them seriously or as me calling anyone out. Thanks!

Fanfest 2016 Las Vegas Keynote
  • Keynote starts with CG trailer. Mountains, statues, pretty. We see a hyur woman in red performing martial arts with a very flowing, DANCElike style, A Hyur man (WoL maybe?) appears and starts showing more MNK-like moves. They spar, then it cuts to the expansion title: STORMBLOOD, early Summer 2017.
  • Yoshida comes out and says hi. Koji is here translating.
  • A longer version of the trailer is confirmed to be in the works.
  • Development is already pretty far in. The story over the next patches will be designed to move us seemlessly into the expansion.
  • Ala Mhigo confirmed!
    • t’s been 20 years since the Garlean invasion of Ala Mhigo. A whole new generation has been born and grown to adulthood since then.
    • Main antagonists the Garlean Empire. XIIth legion Legatus Zenos yae Galvus is the de facto leader of Ala Mhigo. He is supposed to have motives and personality different from previous FFXIV villains.
    • The WoL will be working with the local resistance. NPC companions will play a big part in the story like HW. Woman from trailer is one who will be elaborated on in upcoming content. (PLEASE BE YDA).
      • Dude from trailer confirmed to be WoL as MNK.
    • New hamlet, Rhalgr’s Reach, seen in trailer, is HQ of the resistance. 4.0′s story starts here. The big statue is of Rhalgr.
  • New jobs…
    • RDM confirmed by Yoshida’s Scarlet Witch T-shirt!
  • Level cap 70.
    • New AF, concept art of WHM, DRK and BLM shown.
    • Many new actions, but a revamped battle system to cope with that.
      • Overhaul to additional skill system. Instead of specific cross-class allotments, they could be grouped into role-based pools.
      • Actions that don’t see much use will be adjusted or removed.
  • Multiple sprawling new areas, no fewer nor smaller than HW. Stormblood is intended to have content to rival a full standalone game.
  • New primals, of course. Both nostalgic FF summons and ones new to the series.
  • New dungeons, high end raids, alliance raids.
    • High end raid difficulty is something they’re putting a lot of thought into.
    • Both raid tracks will be “very very Final Fantasy”.
  • The Forbidden Land Eureka - A new type of exploration content.
    • May include NMs on long timers.
    • Might also be involved in new relic weapons.
  • New items and gear, natch.
    • Working very hard on the server upgrades and coding to make this happen.
  • The fourth residential area… but they’re not yet saying where because it’s connected to main story developments.
  • Not a lot of content ready to show off, but they do show flythroughs of new areas.
    • Rhalgr’s Reach looks good!
    • A bridge, a battleground with a spire bearing a Garlean banner, a very damp loooking forest, and a gorge are shown off. Also looking good.
    • The lighting has been modified again to suit the new area like the HW areas were.
    • Looks like we’ll be entering the expansion through the Garlean wall in East Shroud.
    • All 4.0 areas will be accessible by flying mounts. Aether currents will be returning to unlock each area.
  • That’s all they have to say about Stormblood’s content today, because the Japanese and European community teams will kill Yoshida if he gives into temptation and spills all the beans now.
  • Windows minimum specs will be increasing for Stormblood.
  • PS3 support will be ending the minute the Stormblood patch goes live. The number of PS3 players who’ve upgraded to PS4 makes them feel now is the time. They’re also doing a PS3 to PS4 version free upgrade campaign for those who haven’t yet moved on. They’re thinking of adding an automatic upgrade for those who haven’t been playing a while and come back for Stormblood.
  • Official Amano art shown off!
  • “Please look forward to it!”
  • Exit Yoshida. Enter battle content director Masaki Nakagawa… and the stream gets borked for me for a couple of minutes.
  • Oh hey, it’s Soken! “WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE!”
  • And Fanfest is officially opened with an awkward group ranger pose.
