Guardian Alyssa, from "The Guardian Legend".
This game has so much nostalgia for me... mainly that I remember it being one of the first games we bought for the Nintendo along with Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda.
And I think I liked this game even MORE.
I've been doodling her quite a bit, so expect more arts but with her actually fighting some of the baddies... Chicks that turn into spaceships get's a plus in my book.

Played it? This was one of my favorite games as a kid. Just getting into playing it again lately. Maybe 20 years later I'll actually be able to beat it. haha. *accepts cookies* Nom nom. Very nice drawing of the main character BTW. :)

Wasn't there a game that was kinda similiar to this on the Gameboy Advance? Also, wasn't her name Miria?

Yeah... I called her Alyssa because that's what I called her back in the day.
Hehe, I really should change it to Miria... Hmmm...
Was there a game?! I wonder if it was an unplanned sequel! XD

Now I remember it was Sigma Star Saga. Not sure if it is as good as The Guardian Legend.

Looks fucking amazing is all I have to say. Such a wonderful game, too bad it didn't start to get recognition until within the past ten years..

I like your version a bit better than mine, because it stays true to how she was supposed to look in the game... I'm actually trying to make a Fan story based off of Her, and the Guardian from the First Guardian Legend (And a Blue one that I'm going to make up).

Hehe, normally I stay true to the original looks for characters, XD.
But you drew Alyssa?! I'll have to take a gander! ♥

Ahh, old-school gaming fanart. Even better when it's old-school gaming fanart featuring hot babes.

Fine style. Considering you're working with only a handful of sprites, you can't really "screw" it up.

Spiffy colouring and background. Only complaint I have is that her suit seems awfully "baggy." Hey, I'm a guy, I love skintight outfits. Only other minor design complaint is that her left forearms seems thicker than the rest of the arm.

But those are minor complaints. Still an enjoyable piece of old-school gaming fanart. Kick it retro-style, milady.

hehe! THank you. and THIS is why I don't like digitally inking as much as traditional... things like that happen [since the images are worked so large, I can only usually see one bodypart at a time...] But yeah - her arms are a bit off... meh, haha. This was done as a warmup doodle - and not many people have played this game so I hoped the image might be overlooked! Hehe.

One thing I never overlooked - her underboob-age... hehe.

but d'aww... thanks, I'm so glad there are more people out there with a love of older games! I remember being very, very little and during the "Adventure" stages going: "That's... that's a girl! I can see her bikini!" hehehe... my sister and I named her "Sanakiya" before we finished and saw her real name, what a relief... ^^

Think they'll ever make a remake of it featuring newer characters and a whole new Naju?

Ooouuu would I LOOOVE that. The game is PRIME for a nintendo DS remake... I mean, hell, take a look at my sister's AWESOME fully-hand-made mock screens: [link]
[100% hand-drawn. XD;;]
It shows that it can totally be done... imagine how easy it would be to select your weapons with the touch screen!? Ahhh... the dreams. ^^

if you like Galaga-style shooters but vertical and has an actual adventure type search-for-corridors gameplay you should REALLY check this out. Plus, it's super hard. ^^
