Amon Sticker Speed Paint

Posted on: August 8, 2020

I spent this morning working on digitally inking and painting one of the Amon stickers. There was a request for a speed paint of it, so here you go! 

I cut out about an hour of boring stuff (painting under lines and things), but this is pretty much the whole process from start to finish. Sped up, of course. 

Hope you enjoy! 

Ascent Photo Gallery

Posted on: August 10, 2020

I spent a good deal of time working on the screenshots for the Ascent storyline, so I wanted to post a gallery now that the story is fully posted! Many of these took some editing - especially the ones with the dark cloud backgrounds. Those were all blue screened in game with the effects added via Photoshop.

A fun project!

Flying to Syrcus Tower

Posted on: August 11, 2020

First order of business when logging into the new patch – can Amon fly to Syrcus Tower now that there’s flying in ARR zones? 

The answer? 

Nope. Though pretty much as expected.

Amon may not have made it to Moonfire just yet, but Tad and his panda has!

Things That Will Never Happen to Amon (1) – 5.3 Style

Posted on: August 13, 2020

So I finished 5.3 last night, and the irony of the ending wasn’t lost upon me.

Amon, as I write him, maintains a healthy fear of the Warrior of Light. This makes sense from his PoV - this is the powerful hero who led the raid into Syrcus Tower, defeating Amon and Xande both. Basically, this is the person who killed Amon, and he doesn’t want the WoL to know he survived. 

So, there’s HUGE irony in the final trial of 5.3… wherein Amon gets his turn to open a can on a “Warrior of Light” by defeating him - in all places - in Xande’s throne room. 

Not only that, but I popped the Bard LB3 during our run (waited for melee to do it, and they didn’t pop it at 3%, and the party was calling for it, so…). I ended up sacrificing myself to the LB, but that being the final action I took during that fight made for some excellent /Gpose after!! 

So here’s your ironic screen shots of Amon taking down a representation of the very thing that defeated him… in the very place he was defeated. XD

Things That Will Never Happen to Amon (2) – 5.3 Style

Posted on: August 13, 2020

So I finished 5.3 last night, and the irony of the ending wasn’t lost upon me.

Amon walks up to the Tower gates and they happily open for him! 

This is something he’s only DREAMED could happen. It’s actually a little cruel to have it played out in MSQ but never for real. Ah, well. That’s Amon’s life. 

I do have questions about the status of the Tower, though. I probably need to go back and re-watch the end to get some clarity, if there is any. Is the Tower still “asleep” and frozen in time, or is it active again? I’m guessing it’s still “sealed” - the gates still can only be opened by Allagan royal blood. 

These are important questions for me to determine the future of Amon’s story, naturally. Anyhow. Here’s the ironic screenshots of what can never be.

New Friend(?)

Posted on: August 13, 2020

Went to my room in the Pendants to do some glamour changes and found someone waiting for me.

It’s not a minion.

Flame Dance vs. Bees Knees Dance Off!

Posted on: August 14, 2020

Amon goes to the Moonfire Faire for relaxation and ends up in a dance off.

Allagan Fun in the Sun

Posted on: August 14, 2020

I managed to persuade Scylla to let me dance a bit. Felt good to stretch and get out in the sun!

Tad – Level 70!

Posted on: August 14, 2020

Tad hit 70 tonight! Once I get him caught up with job quests, it’s to the First with him!

‘Twasn’t me!

Posted on: August 17, 2020

“I swear I didn’t break anything this time!”

Last week, Scylla and I got as far as unlocking the Gauntlet during 5.3 before we had to break for the night. The next day, not thinking about the state we’d left the First in, I went off to do Dwarf Beast Tribe quests on Amon. I was taken aback to see that the starfall weather was persistent across zones, and had to go and take a few shots of it!

Amon… stop breaking the First!

Reflections of a Faire

Posted on: August 18, 2020

The Moonfire Faire was the first Eorzean event I experienced back when I was still new to these lands. I recall enjoying the fireworks then, just as much as I still do now. Only, at that point in my life, I was relatively alone. 

How much a difference a few years makes. Now, I find people everywhere! Perhaps ‘tis a testament of how far I’ve come to realize where I am right now. 

When your mind is cluttered with so much all the time – like mine is – ‘tisn’t easy to recognize that progress doesn’t always mean vast, shifting moments in one’s life. But if you can silence those thoughts, perhaps for the space of a fireworks display, it occurs to me how rare and beautiful ‘tis to have cross paths with so many amazing individuals.


Excuse Me, Gridania?

I would like to know why you are using Allagan tech as a containment unit for harmless ghosts?

New Ghostly Mount Buddy!

Posted on: August 20, 2020

I actually earned all of these last night on Amon, but it was just too late to post them yesterday. Since his character didn’t exist back when the previous YoKai events happened, he had to start everything from scratch. 

My goal was originally just to earn the Whisper mount. But after seeing how much easier this version of the event was – at least on the first day – I went ahead and got the four new weapons, too. I figured they’d be the harder ones to get if I put them off since they require higher level FATEs. 

I don’t know if I’ll have the motivation to do all the rest of the weapons yet. Especially since I have two alts that need the mount and a bunch of alts that I’d like to finish the minion collection on. We’ll see!

Sticker Mode

Posted on: August 21, 2020

Amon approves of sticker mode in /gpose for this reason alone.


Posted on: August 21, 2020

Watching fireworks with you by my side makes them somehow brighter.

It Has Begun

Posted on: August 21, 2020

The Melon Arrives!

Posted on: August 22, 2020

Thanks to Zel for the Allagan Melon! Scylla isn’t quite on board with the idea of mobile melons, though (but she still picked up a minion for herself)!


Posted on: August 22, 2020

I really do enjoy spending time with these little guys and gals.


Posted on: August 22, 2020

Even the panda questions the sanity of whomever gave Tad a flamethrower.

Puppet’s Bunker – Glory!

Posted on: August 23, 2020

Survived Puppets’ Bunker part two. The second time was a lot better.

Rain on my Faire

Posted on: August 23, 2020

The last weekend of the Faire is experiencing some setback due to rain. But Melon and I aren’t letting that keep us down!

Melon Anyone?

Posted on: August 23, 2020

Call Me Commander!

Posted on: August 25, 2020

Who thought it was a good idea to let Amon demo a tiny flying frog tank that shoots aether lasers? It was probably Amon.

Princess Scylla and Her Loyal Butler, Amon

Posted on: August 26, 2020

There was some Butler AU going around. So, here’s Princess Scylla and her butler, Amon.

Note: Scylla would hate being all Princessy like this.

Melons Have Arrived!

Posted on: August 27, 2020

The second part of my plan is now in place. First tanks. Now Allagan melons!

Tanks shooting Allagan melons anyone? Dangerously delicious!

The Rising…

Posted on: August 28, 2020

Let’s Manderville Mambo!

Posted on: August 28, 2020

Finally got off my lazy tail and finished the Hildibrand quests for Amon. So happy to finally have the Mambo!

Incredible Shrinking Tank Mount!

Posted on: August 28, 2020

So, I noticed that when you are flying in the air or under water, when your character pops out to shoot the tank canon, they SHRINK DOWN when they duck back in! At least, Elezen do! 

Full Size Amon:

Don’t Mess With My Melon!

Posted on: August 31, 2020

Amon being overdramatic in his new crafting gear. Not only did he get a gear upgrade, but I finished the crafting relics for him (this is the second character I’ve done them for… yes, I haven’t started the gathering relics yet, I know…)
