GSX: Guardian Cheeseburgers 0.4 by The-Knick GSX: Guardian Cheeseburgers 0.4 by The-Knick
Update 0.4 (Jan 08 2012, 9:00am){
Added 7 more! Now only just 8/9 to go! (I'm considering if one of the guardians is redundant or not) You should be able to tell which I added by the ones that are completely unfamiliar.

From here on out is when it's going to be the slowest - particularly because I'm heavily stumped on the designs for the last 8/9, and it will take some heavy design processes before being able to cheeseburger-fy them from the vague ideas I have in mind.
}
Update 0.3 (Jan 02 2012, 1:00pm){
A day late, as I did these last minute.

Added 5 more, specifically the ones from the (small) second set of chibi guardians. Also added Rangar's Sword form. Now I have left all the Guardians I have not drawn yet at all.

}
Update 0.2 (Dec 27 2011, 11:00am){
An our early. hehe.

Added 8 more, and fixed a few. Now I have all Guardians from the original set -- minus Gigas Atlas, who was removed only shortly after introducing him. To keep an even number of 18, I added one of the newer Guardians, Ishar. We're about halfway there!

Also added a snazzy background

}

Notes:
*Some have been renamed, like Vanemesca, Alasfer and Babillut
*Ether and Alasfer were the hardest to redesign.
*Rangar's Sword form will come later.
*Tin-Sun's "All Elemental" is because when he performs magical attacks, the element of each hit is completely randomized.

*This group is specifically for GSX, as in GS1 and other Guardian Sagas installments, there's usually an altered amount of them (as there are Guardians added and lost over time), and different designs - or "interpretations" - of the Guardians.

My god, these are absolutely FANTASTIC. I cannot tell you enough how much I love these. They are all unique and seem to come from different cultures. I absolutely love these! My favorite is definitely the fat one with the multiple arms and the sax. He just seems so... unique. Again, absolutely amazing! Great job!

I haven't posted too much besides some tidbits when I draw specific guardians, though I've been meaning to write up an entire article about all their backstories, relations, etc.

I particualy like the designs for Gargundula, Balaz, and Eucros. I also like how Haoler holds a pinwheel, and Zelane's arm appears to be bandaged. Great work so far!

i prefer a few of the old ones. but still, you did a good job on re-designing them with better elements of design.
Pardon me for asking, how do they work with normal humans? i mean size comparison and where they appear and sorts. coz i'm thinking of doing some fanart :)

And man, the sizes, places, etc., vary like nuts - If you need information like that for fanart, it'd be easier for me to tell you the details about each individual one you want to draw.

Also I gotta reconsider the anemone end that spits water.
