Very nice fan art based on the original Japanese cover art. Or maybe drawn over. The Japanese cover was made in somewhat H. R. Giger style. This one also has something from that creepy feeling of Giger’s works (most known for xenomorph from Alien franchise).
Full size picture can be found in our gallery along with other great fan art.
I think if the game was in this kind of style then it would be creepy. Or even a horror. Not sure if I would want that.
This is such a simple idea. Making a line art over the Japanese art cover of The Guardian Legend. But the result is really nice. Click image to go to the gallery. There is an option to see image in original size.
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.
You can find more fan art in the gallery!
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.
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!
