Sleepless dreams are sure to be a bit more pleasant if they happen in colour at least, so here’s the full colour version of the previous illustration’s linework.

To lay in silence,  waiting for the sleep to take over as the moons go by, the thoughts travel as if they grew wings, holding on under the starry sky. The key so close that you can almost reach for it, and yet, still out of reach – for now.

Sleepless ~ Lines

A little inspiration from endless nights of sleep-deprived dreams that lead us to create these words and illustration.

“A Child’s Dream in finding the key that opens the Door of Quiet
Dressed to please, unable to sleep. Finding solace in keeping silent.”

Grandia, StarTwo style!

It’s a joyous day for any Japanese rpg aficionado! One of the most beloved titles from the 90’s era named Grandia, together with its first sequel, Grandia II, gets an HD release today.

Oh Grandia, how long has it been? Our nostalgia filled souls already have your soundtrack blaring for all to hear (well, not on the stereo because it’s still daytime… we’re respectful neighbors) and we celebrate by drawing your sweet, memorable characters!
This game might not be the best jrpg out there, the plot is quite simplistic and the most demanding rpg gourmand among us might quickly decide to snub it, however, for us two, it was a hit straight to our gamer hearts.

Without geeking out too much, here’s what we believe the game offers very, very well:

• An awesome combination of medias: engaging story that keeps you moving forward, fun game mechanics, great music evoking the feeling of exploration.

• The feeling that you’re truly going on an adventure and on the search of an ancient civilization.

• Well written characters that are equally appealing visually, with their looks perfectly representing their roles and personality.

On our image, from left to right we got Justin, a troublemaker of a kid, dreaming of becoming an adventurer and honor the legacy of his ancestors, Sue, the cutest girl in town, but with wits and attitude to match and Feena, an adventurer from the New World, with a few well kept secrets. And there’s also Puffy in accessory mode on Sue’s head.
And now we get to travel by their side once again, on their quest to reach The End Of The World and maybe, even go beyond it because as we know, the World never ends and neither do adventures.

Charming, delightful, a bit frustrating at times but very well paced, Grandia is the perfect treat for this weekend. Hurray!

★Stay inspired everyone!★

The colour illustration for the folktale of “Cardil, the Bull” wouldn’t be complete without at least a detail of its lines.
Poor Cardil… If you’re wondering why he’s looking so upset, don’t miss the opportunity to read the story on our previous post. Or even quicker, by clicking right here.

★We hope you have a great week and stay inspired!★
