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.

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.

GRANDIA. GRANDIA. FREAKIN' GRANDIA, MAN.
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.

And your artwork on this game is fantastic! Definately a fave!
I have tried the second one but never really got through any of it xD
I found the main character an asshole xD But I might play it now, maybe I will look different on it this time after all the good comments about it :)

This was easily one of my favorite PSONE RPGs and games in general. SO well done in terms of characters, graphics, sound, story and gameplay. I just KNOW it has it's diehard fans, but it can't possibly be appreciated ENOUGH.

I think 3 was good as well. Haven't tried the first, but fully agreed on the second. Haven't tried Xtreme though. Would like to, despite the reviews, though. For me, no matter the reviews, I still prefer to form my own opinion on things. Sure, it may not be up to the usual standards the others set, but that doesn't mean it's completely bad, so I'd still like to form my own opinions if I ever found the opportunity.

3 was pretty decent, but yeah, I just feel it lacked the charm that the first two had, imho. It was clearly more darker than the previous two, so it did well keeping that great sense of adventure too. But I liked the first two because it was just more... charm'y. :)

Xtreme... I played it. I don't even think of it, I'll just say that.
