Guardian's Crusade - The World by LongJh Guardian's Crusade - The World by LongJh
Another piece for my Guardian's Crusade redesign project.

The story from the original game is about a boy rescuing a baby dragon, on a quest to return it back home, having all sorts of adventures and twists along the way and eventually saving the world. A classic.

This was the first illustration I did to sort of set the mood and tone of the world. I used the original game cover art as an inspiration. I liked the idea of the heroes looking ahead, far beyond the horizon, catching a glimpse of their destination in the distance. And I also wanted to create this wide open world that they had to travel through in order to reach their goal, sort of like a the journey begins, type thing. I also had an idea that this could be like the starting game splash screen or something lol.

Hope you guys like it, and thanks for looking!

Also, check out the character redesigns for this story! -
Knight, the hero,
Nehani, the fairy
and Baby, the shapeshifting baby dragon!

I love this game very much. You've really captured the feel of adventure and how grand and wide it is. Knight, Nehani, and Baby looks so small in comparison, so I love that Knight is reassuring the dragon he'll be fine. Great job.
