Official artwork by Fumio Minagawa

Since new images are being added ill post the new ones at the top.

Final 29/9



Quote:
When I was approached to draw illustrations for the 20th anniversary, my original idea was to draw the various areas stacked together in a pyramid.
The earliest areas from launch would be at the bottom, layered with the Promathia areas, the Aht Urhgan areas, and finally the Adoulin areas and beyond. That was the simple concept I had in mind.

However! For whatever reason, it ended up like this.

I began from drawing Sarutabaruta, then Gustaberg, followed by Ronfaure...
“I should draw that area next... no, this one! No, that one!” And like that, I just kept going and ended up illustrating almost every single area.

Every single locale in Vana’diel is overflowing with nostalgia... For areas where my own recollections or experiences fell short, they were supplemented with the passionate retellings and recollections of those around me who also played.

Whether you’re an adventurer who formerly roamed Vana’diel or one who still has many journeys ahead to look forward to, I hope you’ll enjoy these illustrations, brimming with memories; be it through reminiscing nostalgically with old friends or embarking to new destinations.

Last but not least:
Happy 20th Anniversary, FFXI!

- Fumio Minagawa

Funny, the only actual vegetation in mhaura seems to be a few dried weeds here and there. Nothing green. You know, they could redo some zones to liven up the place if they wished, but thats asking a lot it seems with these guys.

Don't give them any ideas. Theyll do that, then pat themselves on the back like it took a lot of effort.

At first, I thought it was the art director from Final fantasy tactics (Hiroshi Minagawa), but it isn't. they do share the same last name tho.

Thanks for posting these. I looked at that site like once or twice in the first few months of them starting it and probably never would of seen these otherwise.

He does have an artbook available of all his past XI artwork, not these yet though. I bought it a while ago, it's great.

I ended up buying it myself, thanks for the tip.

From Funk in the Dev Thread, new FFXI Merch featuring the Vanarium. Definitely getting these.

The rest of the merch up for pre order now on amiami

https://www.amiami.com/eng/search/list/?s_keywords=FINAL%20FANTASY%20KADOKAWA&s_cate_tag=10

I probably get the coaster set and maybe the Mirror. What is a pub mirror anyway? It looks nice, I think the poster is too large for me though.

Advertises on the EU Playonline site, but only ships to the US. Wahh.

I think a pub mirror is an actual mirror with the artwork printed on it? That would certainly explain the price.

Pub mirrors are signs made on a reflective surface. You've probably seen them with like Budweisser written on them

I'm struggling to think of a reason they would do this, I'm going to be super salty if they don't change this.

Honestly just order from a reshipper. Maybe it's different for uk/EU but generally it's both cheaper and faster than going through your regional SE store lol

(I'm assuming mau was referring to the SE store since amiami doesn't have restrictions on the EU AFAIK)
