FFXIV Car?!Follow

#1 Aug 25 2011 at 9:29 AM Rating: Good
So as I mentioned somewhere (maybe my blog on the lodestone, not sure) I will be custom painting my car over the next month or two, and it will be entirely FFXIV!!! (I am painting the entire car by hand too. >_< )

What I would love from the community is suggestions for different things to actually paint on the car. Here is what has already been decided that will definitely show up on the car:

My character State Alchemist. (Driver-side rear passenger door/Driver-side rear quarter-panel)
The FFXIV logo. (Hood)
A chocobo. (Driver-side front quarter-panel/Driver door)
A Moogle. (Maybe 'peeking' out of the trunk. I am not painting my windows...lol.)
National Flag(s?) (Roof...maybe, if I do one flag. I might do all of them. Idk yet.)
A Goblin. (somewhere)
Ul'dah Skyline Backdrop behind Chocobo/my character. (Driver side front quarter-panel/Driver door)

Help me out by giving me some good ideas/suggestions!

(I'll post before/during/and after pics once I get ready to paint it.)

EDIT: Oh, I guess I could mention that the car in question is a 1995 Honda Accord.
EDIT: On a side note...I saw a Spongebob Squarepants Corvette last week. O.o

Your character should go on the rear of the car somewhere as its the most seen part of any vehicle. The logo should go on the Doors And the hood should have decals of a chocobos face the eyes and beak and what not, assuming your car matches one of the 7 chocobo colors.if you opt for your character on the rear window add a chocobo tail decal to the trunk.

I will keep that in mind, but I was more of wanting to do like a collage of Monsters, Landscape, and Main Characters maybe. At least that was kind of my original concept. I plan on going into ridiculous detail on it, not just have like a chocobo car with my character on it. (Although that would look really cool! Maybe I will do that with my other car... :D )

Malboro, Cactuar, Moogle, Chocobo: they must be included, of course. Also a Marmot because they're everywhere whether you want them to be or not.

Each city-state has a well-designed emblem, as well, in addition to their grand company flags and their respective newspaper logos - do something with those, too! Put 'em on the doors or the roof or, um, something!

Moogle is definitely getting added to the list!

I agree with the emblem bit, to be honest there isn't much that identifies XIV specifically other than the art style.

I would paint a few specific mobs on the passenger side from pre-Yoshi data, then paint the same ones but larger on the drivers side... with various HUD symbols attached to them to represent the "new" XIV... ^.^

I was thinking of maybe painting the giant airship that was in the battle during the opening movie.

I suggest having the Chocobo's **** where you put the gas in :D
EDIT: And chocobo tracks from one side to the other :D

Other suggestions;
Put the three city-state emblems along the bump / trunk on the back, and put there corresponding group with them (hall of flames, etc.)

A close-up chocobo head on the hood starring forward might be cool, so people who are in front of you just see a big chocobo behind them!

Can you paint on the windows? I'd have a Moogle' head "peaking" up from the backseat so it looks like it's in your car.
EDIT: have like 90% of the moogle painted on the window so if you have the window down it looks like the moogle is just peaking over enough that you see it's eyes, and when the window is all the way up it looks like the moogle is trying to escape from the car and pull itself out :D

How about a stampede of Cactuar fleeing from a Malboro

You have to put a Goblin on it too!

Might as well throw on a Coblyn since they are pretty infamous :D

That's pretty crazy. . I have a tiny little decal of Yoshi on a go-kart in the quarter window of my Integra.. but turning it into a mural of an MMO is bananas.

Love to see how it turns out though, gl!

Get Sweetnix Roseycheeks on there!

If it were a general FF theme rather than just XIV, I'd demand a tonberry. That would be sweeeeeeeeeeeet!

So I decided against the airship. To be honest I just don't think I can get a very accurate depiction of it from the pictures I can find of it.

I do like the idea of including some of the emblems/flags in the game.

If you've read the manga it should. It's from one of the scenes in the story. I did this drawing for my niece, she really wanted a drawing of Belledandy, so I went through some of the manga I had and decided on that scene to draw. Now the picture is framed and hanging on my niece's wall in her room. :3

Edit: It's also posted on my facebook. Along with a couple other pictures that I drew, one of a taru that I found online and really liked, so I drew it. Then a (poor) replica of a drawing I found of Serpent General Mihli, and an original work of mine of my character from FFXI wearing Red Mage AF, and drunk. lol

My roommate actually suggested that, but I am not really sure what (if anything) I want to do with the roof. And then if I do put a nation flag on it, which one do I choose? I was a die hard Windurst citizen in FFXI, and so I feel a sense of obligation to Gridania (it being the windurst equivilent, for the most part) but I am a Dunesfolk, Lalafell, so if I wanted to fly the colours of Ul'dah I could without much question. Limsa Lominsa is already out of the question because I don't even like having to go there. (No offense LL fans.)

No. In fact. You really don't. The only problem is, while I am a talented artist, I am not confident enough in my abilities to attempt painting him. He looks epic as ****, and it would be amazing to include it, but it would require a lot of airbrushing to get him to look good, and any access I have to airbrushing equipment will be limited (because whatever I use I am borrowing or renting). Most of the other stuff will be painted by hand using brushes (of various kinds). I just don't think I can pull him off without extensive airbrushing.

EDIT: That is such a nice pic you posted.

I'm just peeking back in here to second the Sweetnix Rosycheeks suggestion. You simply can't have a FFXIV mural without a goblin in there somewhere (plus, FFXIV goblins look just like their FFXI counterparts, so it's like referencing both games at once)! :3

Oh, and maybe a little Bomb-type mob on the gas tank?

Should draw a tonberry on the driver side door. Get throat stabbed if someone tries to steal the car. Also, you should post a mock-up image here of what the overall design will look like before drawing it on there to get a better opinion gauge.

I probably will post some mock ups before I start, since I will be drawing them anyway.
