A Request For Fanart

I'm sending out an open call for any and all fan art.

Over the years, I've been incredibly astounded by some of the works of my fellow FFXI players. I've seen a thousand different game images expressed from unique perspectives.

Plus, I have to say, I always enjoy the fan art I get from my readers.

Mostly because it involves me.

I like me.

So, I thought I'd throw this out there.

If anyone would like to submit fan art, you can send it to gmdaveblog at gmail dot com.

If you can't figure out the e-mail address from that, it's probably best that you don't write me anyway.

There are a few rules:

1) no nudity

Keep it clean. Pictures of Susan naked would be inappropriate and pictures of me naked would be incredibly intimidating.

I once tried to photocopy my "equipment" for posterity.

Unfortunately, they were out of 8 1/2" x 14" paper.

Also, the workers at Kinko's were not amused.

2) be normal

Sure, a picture of me fighting off Godzilla with nothing more than a can opener sounds awesome, but would it make a good picture?


Use your best judgment.


If I get one picture of me making out with Sephiroth, I will burn your server to the ground.

I don't mean that figuratively. I will get lighter fluid and a match, and set your server on fire.


Don't test me.

The best pictures will be posted on the blog along with your name so you can get the credit you deserve.

The worst pictures will be posted on the blog along with your name so you can get the credit you deserve.

It'll be fun.

Expect a lot of horrible art. Can't say I can do much better, but still. I've warned you.

Dave, is there a deadline? I'd would love to contribute to this, I've often mused on what a fan art piece of you by me would be, and I have a clear idea on it now. The only issue for me is time.

We got a time limit on this or is it a perpetual thing?
