Get Your Character Drawn by Vlor!Follow

#1 Feb 23 2013 at 12:44 PM Rating: Excellent
The XI forums have been kind of quiet as of late, so I thought something fun and silly might be in order to revive some of those quieter topics or just to get some activity going, I've decided to hold a little contest.

Entry Requirements

  • The topics you create and/or the posts you make must be relevant to the forum (and in the case of an existing topic, the topic at hand). Topics unrelated to the forum and posts unrelated to the topic will not count.
  • Posts need to have at least a little meat to them. I'm not saying huge essays or something, but one word posts or just pictures won't cut it either.
  • Keep things clean and decent. Any posts made flaming an individual or trying to troll (either situation judged by me), even if the bulk of the post is relevant and on topic, will not count.
  • Only posts made between now and the deadline will be allowed. No retroactively going and editing earlier posts to try and get in guys Smiley: bah
  • For a post to be considered, at the end it must have "Draw My Character Vlor!" in bold letters. If you don't want a post to be considered, then just don't include that. Likewise, posts in this topic won't count, because that's just too easy
  • The more posts you make, the better your chances are of winning. I'll be using a Random Number Generator to choose the entry. If the post I come to, however, violates the rules as per what I posted above, I will not accept it.


What will you win? I will personally draw your FFXI character, and I promise it won't be a stick figure.You can choose the armor and weapon you want them to have equipped, the situation they're in (i.e. mob they're fighting, etc), and things like that. Since this will be posted here, I will not draw anything that would be considered lewd or inappropriate, though certain levels of violence will be allowed if you so choose since this is, after all, a very battle-oriented MMO.

I will accept entries between now and 12pm eastern on March 2nd.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here.

I'll enter your contest if you promise not to draw me in mining gear.

That being said, DRAW MY CHARACTER, VLOR!

I'd only draw your character in mining gear if that's what you chose for me to draw it in, and you clearly didn't read all of the 5th bullet point :P

I should also say that I won't draw your character in gear pieces they can't equip. I won't draw your Elvaan Male wearing the female Dancer Empyrean or things like that, nor will I draw your Paladin wearing a Duelist's Chapeau or something like that. I will gladly draw you in your "dream" gear, but only actual gear wearable by the job.

Do you have any sample masterpieces? We have no proof that you're physically capable of drawing! My artistic skills are on a 3rd grade level and I'm a master at crayons.... so my standards are a little high here.

But what if our dream character is to be a attestation NM? They get to wear multiple relic pieces and look pretty cool....

Only one I have offhand that's Final Fantasy related. I drew it real quick a good while ago in response to, I'm wanting to say, Jinte posting up a pic she drew of the same premise (a baby chocobo hugging an ear of millioncorn), and I was just feeling a bit one-uppy.

As you can tell though, I prefer the old-fashioned pencil and paper over drawing it on the computer.

Didn't Vlor draw the first Happy Friday comic?
Too bad it ended, Vlor should totally revive it!

I can't believe it's already been 4 years since I drew

though I still think mine is better given the circumstances. I drew it in like, 5 minutes as a doodle. Also I like saying that I'm better than vlor. Also hi guys. Also I'm totally posting this to see if I get lucky like I did with the FFXI-songwriting contest where I won that autographed piano collection CD (which I still have <3)



Now then, Draw My Character Vlor!

Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!

I could maybe add an occasional comic on fridays.
Thing is it takes a lot of spare time to write and draw them so this could be a reason for it going the way of the dodo.
Possible candidate for Happy Friday?

DRAW MY CHARACTER, VLOR! .. because I want to see what another artist comes up with. :D

Looks like Susperia's post in the 9,968 pages thread wins this one. Sus, if you could post here all relevant information regarding the pic you'd like (gear, scene, your hair style too since I forget what your character looks like), I'll have it to you within the week.

This will probably not be the only time I end up doing this, so everyone be ready!

Do this monthly, without requiring the line at the bottom and instead being any thread you also reply to, but only the people before you.. One entry per thread per person when on-topic.

Sort of a 'beat Vlor to replying to a thread' deal.

Also your post has to be on-topic too, so you don't have to qualify a 'stop having fun guys' post.

Whoa, I won?! Sweet!! :D
How my character looks should be in my character information here.... So I'll look really gimpy... And scene... How about me look for new gear at the AH. You can interpret that in any way you want. Smiley: grin

I already showed it to Sus yesterday, but here's what I came up with. I took her being "gimpy" and went with an idea of her having a devious grin on her face as she's heading to the Auction House with a large bag of gil and her "Wish List".

I must say, I've never paid too much attention to the intricacies of the Noble's Tunic until I drew that. Had to take some liberties on the design since the model itself is pixellated when viewed up close

Yeay! :D
The detail work is pretty awesome. :)
It definitely looks like a pain to do.

Altho, I do like to point out I'm perpetually broke, so the large bag of gil would only in my dreams. Smiley: frown
