Commissioner Comments
T1 > F3 > F1 x 4 > B3 > T1 > B1 and repeat from F3

Sometimes, problems in Eorzea are best solved by a couple blasts of fire to the face. As a Black Mage, I'm more than happy to supply that. If my tank's eyebrows get singed off in the process, then so be it! I came here to drink milk and blast Primals into aether... and I've just about finished my milk.


Artist Comments
This picture @v@ I am insanely proud of the results I got for this. When I first saw the outfit that Seraph was looking to have drawn, I definitely nervous about if I would be able to pull it off. I love to do detailed pictures, but this was more detailed than anything I've done before, really. But! With a lot of careful pre-sketching and planning and rules, I feel like I really pulled it off! It was a lot of fun working out how best to show the character and the clothes, how to fit the staff on the physically limited dimensions of the page, and how I wanted the lighting to look. I couldn't lose concentration for a moment while I was coloring this, because if I put that dark gray down somewhere that I didn't mean for it too, there was no coloring back over it with anything lighter.

I'm really happy that I've learned how to use my scanner better, because if I had done this picture up even a few months ago, all those light blues would be nearly invisible. There are some minor changes, but overall this scan looks very close to the actual piece. Thank you for commissioning this from me, Seraph! It really let me put my all into a picture.

You should be proud.  You did a good job.  As a player of FFXIV I was able to recognize this costume instantly when I saw it.  You did great.

At least I have the decency to pull mobs TO the tank! Rather than run around screaming.

That's bold face lie!!  Black mages don't know how to move.  They just stay in one spot then complain when they have to move.  XP

I can feel the frustration.

If you could generate stacks of Wrath based on the hatred of your teammates, I could Steel Cyclone helicopter off into space.

That might be the nerdiest sentence I've ever written.

God, spix, you're good. It ain't easy drawing those incredibly detailed pieces of gear, I mean, that game's design contends with Nomura for moving parts.
This is really great

My first thought: "Cool."
My second thought: "Hey, I have that staff..."
My third thought: "'T1 > F3 > F1 x 4 > B3 > T1 > B1 and repeat from F3' ...yup, that's the rotation after all.
