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! :)

TIME: 1 hr. 45 Mins.

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!
I really like how you handled the background here.

AWESOME! Haven't seen Grandia art in a long time. "Gadwin's Secret move!... DRAGON KING SLICE!" Good work.

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.
I remember playing this game as a kid. It was the best days I can remember. Oh what I would give to play the game once more.
