POL News: Pretty Pictures.

SE has posted, and pretty well I might add, the rest of the entries from the 7th Anniversary Art contest. There are some really good works, and I know that some of them are probably better than the actual winners, but that is probably because they didn't follow the lame of the contest at all. A for effort, F for following directions. I perused a good number of them this morning and I like what I see and I applaud everyone that entered the contest. It's not the easiest thing in the world to put your personal artwork up for everyone to see and judge. Well, it is easy for attention whores, and I have found that some artists tend to be attention whores, which is why you get places like DeviantArt where 99% of the work is crap, but everyone says it's great because they are trying to get everyone else to tell them that they are great. Internet circle jerk, defined. But at least with most of the work for the FFXI 7th Anniversay Art contest most of the work is top notch.SE was also pretty complimentary to the artists.

We're pleased to announce that all submissions to the 7th Anniversary Fan Art Contest are now available for your viewing pleasure!

This year's edition of the contest attracted a whopping four hundred entries from fans the world over.
With so many varied interpretations of this year's 7th Anniversary theme, there is bound to be something among the scores of masterpieces that will tug at your heartstrings!

We encourage one and all to admire and be inspired by the artwork born from the hands of your fellow adventurers!

Congratulations to all of the winners and all of the entrants!
