Tressa Travels for Treasure by JocelynSamara Tressa Travels for Treasure by JocelynSamara
While I've been very busily drawing/writing/planning a lot of things over the last couple weeks, there hasn't been a whole lot I can show just yet.  That sounds like as good a cue as any to pause from the main stuff briefly to make a little fanart so I can share something with you.  ^_^

Octopath Traveler - a gorgeous retro-styled JRPG, and possibly the biggest reason I was sold on the Nintendo Switch - finally comes out this Friday and I'm looking forward to putting all my time not dedicated to work into that game (as is, the soundtrack has been on repeat while I draw lately).  The character portrayed here is Tressa, one of the eight playable characters.  I haven't played the new demo yet (and I might not at all, to be honest), but based on the simple synopses of all the characters, she's an easy pick for my main protagonist, for sure.  Besides being just so darned cute, I've always had kind of a soft spot for merchant characters in games. 

[Please note: the background is just ripped from an in-game screenshot.  Y'all know I suck at backgrounds.]  XD

Anyone else planning on picking this one up?  Do you know who your starting character is going to be yet?  Feel free to share!  ^_^

Anyway, if you're wondering about Rain (or Moonlight Wanderers, for that matter), I'll have more to share on that soon (and of course, more of Maddie's Guest Rain Delay strips too.  I just wanted to do this to let you know I'm still here, I'm still active, and I've still looking to show you some great things to show you in the future.  ^_^

Nice job, Jocelyn. Now you managed to get me to buy this game! Also, you're right: Tressa is absolutely adorable, though I'm gonna start with Ophilia myself.

I don't know why, but I just haven't gotten into this game so much from what I've seen.  I should probably try out the demo, I just haven't taken the time.

Great drawing by the way, Tressa here is definitely ready for adventure!

I'm doing the characters in OCTOPATH order, in part because it actually works out well for what I want, and in part because it's cute.

It comes out tonight, but if you want to start early, the demo's saves carry over. So go for it, I say!

Funny you should ask that, Jossy. I remember, it was fifteen years ago this October, that I bought a Game Boy Player to go under my Gamecube, for the sole purpose of being able to play Advance Wars 2 (as I didn't have a GBA at the time).
Will something like this ever happen (to me) again?
Time will tell.
I'm not sure about this particular case though, I've only just heard of the game.

This is one of the half-dozen or so games that's making me concider picking up a Switch. And one of two that ain't released yet.

I knew I was forgetting to mention something in the blurb.  ^^;

Nah.  I just ripped the background from a screenshot.  The character I drew; the background not so much.
