Today I want to share some pencil works by SoulStryder210 . He draw screenshots of games with pencil sometimes. Including NES system. Including one with The Guardian Legend of course! You can go to his page to see more from NES and other systems. Here I post only NES screenshots he drew. The games are – Castlevania, Contra, Double Dragon, The Guardian Legend, River City Ransom, Megaman, Metroid, Nemo Dream Master, Ninja Gaiden, Super Mario Bros 3.
This awesome fan art has been around for a while. But I uploaded it to the gallery only now. I used it for new year greetings last year. And now I am confused which one to use this year. Anyway check this fan art in better quality in the gallery. And the other great arts too. Check our forum if you are interested in some deeper community things going on.
Today we have Miria drawn like a poster looking fan art. The author – Yuki Mikazuki, from Poland – draw this kind of girl in many ways. Often 18+. That is why I will not give a link here. So this time he decided to draw his character as a Miria. I think the game’s logo could be placed under the Naju.

Beautiful fan art with Miria transforms into starfighter. Found on twitter from @sugippon here: https://twitter.com/sugippon/status/1004723127186698241
She looks very relaxed here. The scene seems when Miria leaving exploding Naju.

So there is one of our members drew this nice picture. It is TGL inspired. And he says “Not sure if this qualifies” in his forum post.
I don’t really think it is qualifies because it is not really a fan art. Yes it reminds Miria but it is not that type of guardian also. So I probably would not add it to the fan art gallery. But I don’t mind to show it to people. It’s nice picture.
However if you think I should really add this to the gallery then please let me know. What if I am wrong?
And also why not give a shout to other guy. He written me email long ago with his cover art. I am personally not a fan of this type of drawing but maybe someone likes that. He also selling this on eBay. So if you want to have a cover like that then go and buy it.
Don’t forget to join The Guardian Legend discord chat – https://discord.gg/93C68CT you can talk with other Guardian Legend fans there. Including me. Because, guess what, it’s my favorite NES game. LOL.
My thoughts were far away for a while. But now is a good reason to write something. I can say this again and again. That we need to bring more modern presentation to the site. How to do that? I have no idea and have no much time to do research. But I hope with time that can be managed. Would be great if some people could help me a little.
So what’s new there around The Guardian Legend? First of all this cover version of the title screen music. It’s a quite nice one. Also author mentions that he likes the game a lot and have nostalgia feeling about it. Which is good as he made this music with more care than just to get attention around retro buzz.
If you wonder where is this picture of the Miria from, it’s from here: thirdhalf.net/sad2-36-another-compilation/
Also the author replied me about the other picture there. He said it was just some doodle drawing from the stream request. So. I guess we will not get this one more than a draft. Which is probably is okay. This is a bit like a parody looking one 🙂
Thanks everyone who is around The Guardian Legend. If you have some ideas of site improvements, let me know! See ya!
First of all thanks to the amazing Optomon who donated for the site to keep going. He is amazing because he made The Guardian Legend:Secret Edition. That is really helpful, I am thankful to you! 🙂
And now to the post.
I bet most of us thought that it would be so cool if there was some sequel to the game. And maybe with different heroes to select. But did you thought that the heroes could be so different like differnce between RGP classes? You know like Knight, Wizard, Archer. I think it would be great idea. That totally makes sense since the game has adventure walking mode . And would make even greater gameplay difference between classes because of changes into SHMUP mode.
Hard to imagine what kind of classes could be in potential TGL like or sequel game. Maybe there is something like that in SHMUP or futuristic RPG games already.
The idea come to me when I looked at this fan art. Or maybe correct to say art inspired by?
You can read what customer says(it is a commission) about his character Zhaina here: http://jaimehlers.deviantart.com/art/Zhaina-by-SMeadows-647173059
He thinks that Neptunia games probably have some impact from The Guardian Legend game.
I would say his Zhaina character abilities could be around ice and freezing. Also I think there better to be male characters too! If you remember there was few male characters done based on TGL character concept. Especially this one. Ordered by our forum member RubyC42 (AKA youtube RubycoredBejeweled)

Look at that. Very nice view on the costume. Just as I see the Miria in the game. That is the way how I always seen her. Not a bikini and skin but some cover! If you look closer to the details artist made, it is visible that this is not a human body. Only her head is human. I think that belly button was not necessary tho. I guess this is done considering general public demands to exaggerate sexiness in games fan arts.
That blaster does look belong to the Guardian Legend universe. Not ideal probably. I don’t think such a cyborg needs to press trigger with a finger to shoot. But it’s OK and acceptable. I’d agree to play a sequel with such a gun.
I think artist captured the feel of the game pretty well! At least that’s how I feel too 🙂
Thank you Stephen for this great fan art!
You can visit the original page where I found it. There are several pictures showing the progress from a sketch to a finished drawing. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/3m58g
New fan art picture. Miria hanging in space with a sword. Her gun looks strange. It definatelly doesn’t look like belong to The Guardian Legend world.
There is also naked version of her over there. I wont tell where tho 🙂 As this site is not supposed to post things like that.
I am glad the fan art of the game keep coming time to time.
