Farewell 2019 and Hello 2020!

As someone who has below minimal artistic talents when it comes to drawing, I have used themed screenshots of my custom characters in video games to complement season greetings to family and friends. Taking inspiration as I was wandering around Eorzea last night in Final Fantasy XIV, this was the photo taken after much internal deliberation.

As mentioned in my last post, thank you very much everyone for joining me in the reboot of The Otaku’s Study last year. I hope to bring you a lot more in the coming months! Check back very soon for the first instalment of Take That (In-Game) Snap, focusing on Square Enix’s online game Final Fantasy XIV.


Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo is an off-shoot of the upcoming Take That (In-Game) Snap article series, which looks at, celebrates and critiques how video game developers have implemented professional photography-like systems into their games, how the systems handle, just how accessible they are and, where applicable, how a modding community might be making these tools even better. With this Daily Photo spin-off series, I will be sharing individual photos from the games either covered or soon-to-be-covered in the series.
