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 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.
Hey everybody. I was sent a picture today which I’d call something like – cute girl beats monster. Here is what he said:
“Here is an illustration I finished of one of my favorite video games of all time. I was six years old when I first played, The Guardian Legend. I remember in 1988, when my brother’s friend first bought the video game and unfortunately he forgot to take it home. I played that game every day until eventually beat it. My love for the music, the art, the play, and just about everything about it, I really cherish to this day. It pleases me to share this game with my daughter who is now the same age I was when I first played it. Thanks for having this website and there’s some talented people in your fan art and I’m glad they appreciate the game just as much as I do.”
Remember we have a nice gallery with lots of fan art for The Guardian Legend.
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!
I stumbled upon that tweet. Those poses are really intresting. And this instantly gives an idea about more special modes for Miria in The Guardian Legend. She could have more versatile backpack.
Fore example that bow pose looks like for some powerful strike. That would work only in walking adventure mode. The other intresting pose is for softer and maneuver flying. She could fly to any XYZ direction with this. And very fast change the direction. And the third pose, I don’t know. Could be some other sort of fire mode or cutting the walls.
I think there could be a special section in the Gallery for stuff like that. And check that tweet it has more images.
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 🙂
