2-5-12: You Wanna Be The Best Adventurer? by Robaato 2-5-12: You Wanna Be The Best Adventurer? by Robaato
Day 5: SatelliteSoda February Draw-A-Day. Today's subject is GRANDIA.

This game. THIS GAME. I still think Sue is one of the cutest main characters ever in an RPG.

Shame that Takeshi Miyaji passed away last year. You can tell he had put his heart and soul into this game. Shame after Grandia 2, it went downhill from there. I'd still play this and the second this very day! :)

TOOLS: SketchbookPro2011(Lines/Colors)/PhotoshopCS4(Gradients/Grain)/Cintiq21UX
MUSIC: Grandia OST
TIME: 1 hr. 45 Mins.

Takeshi Miyagi passed away?! I was wondering why there aren't any more Grandia games anymore.
This game is my absolute favourite of all time, and it is certainly clear he put all his heart and passion into this product.
This and Grandia II stand as my favourite games EVER!! XD
And brilliant artwork by the way! :D

Yeah story wise 3 just wasn't up to the same snuff but the battle mechanics were all but perfect. It's nice to see art calling back to old classics like Grandia!

Actually I feel Grandia III was a great game Grandia II and X let the side down a little, but SquareEnix really did a great recovery on the third game in my oppinoun. Onto this piece of art, it really is amazing. I can't wait to see more Grandia art in the future and I pray that it will keep the magic of grandia alive in our hearts for years to come.

OMG! I love Grandia very much also! where are they in this picture or are they just in some forest or is it virgin forest or misty forest? But I think it's sad how he dies at like age 45... This is favorite game of all time no matter what it has a special place set in my heartand I really only like the first two Grandias...

I've played all the Grandia's and literally no game in existence will ever hold a candle to this. Too many aspects of it were perfect to compare anything to it. xD The characters and the way they progressed, the soundtrack, the battle system, the world, everything was flawless. Grandia forevaaaa

Aww, this is such a unique and vibrant take on Grandia! :D I love the warm pink tones. It gives it a childlike, dynamic feel, much like the characters! Your style is really indivudual. I love it!

Holy s**t! Grandia fanart! And GOOD Grandia fanart at that. This is probably one of my all time favourite RPG's. I remember when I first played it and I was shocked that it actually had voice acting, which was a new thing to me as the only games RPG's I'd played were text bubble ones so this was a real insight to the character's personalities. I also love that the story is simply about kids having an adventure, rather than the chosen one has the save the world milarky. I love the use of colour, it's so soft but still expresses the energy of the characters brilliantly. I will be adding this to my favourites. Keep up the awesome work!!=)

Great homage. I remember this game really well. I still love that battle system. Also I think it was the first RPG I ever played where the hero actually clearly got the girl. Either that or FF8, though Chrono Trigger could also count...

Anyway, digging the bright colors and the angle. The background seems a bit on the simpler side for you but it works well.

Sue is still one of the most adorable main characters in an RPG. You're absolutely right about that.
You do all this old skool video game fanart and that makes me soooooo very happy.
