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

*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.

So what's with the "cheeseburger" thing?

The-Knick Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2014  Professional Digital Artist

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!

Also, the sax guardian is a she.
DasWiener Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014   Digital Artist
Ohp, sorry. Still my favorite though!
Stone2Gold Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013
Do they all have backstories?
The-Knick Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Most, at least.
Stone2Gold Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013
Were they ever posted anywhere? I'd love to see them.
The-Knick Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
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.
