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. ^_^

I've been looking forward to this game since I heard about it! A few more days to go! Personally I've fallen in love with Primrose, I'm a big Final Fantasy nerd and Dancer has always been one of my favorite jobs so I played her first in the demo and I just have to know what happens next!

I just love the visual style of this game. I've played the stories of 3 characters so far. Primrose, Olberic and Ophelia and I'm super sold on Primrose. I love her story and her mature voice is just the coolest.

I just started the newest demo over so I can pick Primrose as my main character. Since I read you can't switch your main character until you finish their story.

Therion looks like my type of character, a cynical, charismatic thief.

@avery: This is fan art for Octopath Traveler, an upcoming RPG for Nintendo Switch. The character shown is Tressa, one of the main playable characters in the game. Octopath Traveler is mostly known for its unique visual style, which mixes SNES-style pixel art with fully 3D environments and modern lighting and effects, as shown here in the background.

Thanks for this piece. Don't know why, but this image suddenly reminded me a lot of Alpha in Yokohama Kaidashi Kiko when she goes wandering the world (if she had green hair). Going to have to go and dip into that universe again now...
