To the Races by Blackash To the Races by Blackash
This is my entry for :iconaaagh:'s Off-duty FFXI contest.

Everyone has the day off so where better to spend it than the Chocobo Circuit? Whether racing, betting, or watching, it is sure to be a fun filled day. Even the moogles have the day off!

I was always a little sad that chocobo racing fizzled. I love watching the races and wanted to raise a racer. But at least I can show what I had hoped it had turned out like.

I don't even know how many hours I put into this. I hope it shows though! Closeups of parts of the scene can be found here some of you may recognize the models :)

Now to be a nervous wreck :iconscaredplz:

Edit: It's been almost a year so I decided to mess with the colors. No repainting or anything I just added more contrast and vibrancy to it. I actually want to redo this if I get some time :)
