The lists with the songs can be found here 

Spyro the Dragon.  I have such fond memories of playing the first three games of this series.  I had a great time drawing this little purple dragon that it made me want to dust off the old disks and play them again.  

As an added bonus, click here to listen to “Artisan’s Home” one of the songs from the first game.  Just a little something to set the mood for this illustration.

i have a soft spot for takumi bc he was my first five star and the first hero i maxed out :’^) im a proud mom!!

Caeda appreciation

I wish Caeda/Sheeda had a lot more recognition in the Fire Emblem fandom especially between all the female characters (bonus points since her design isn’t something with a bunch of fanservice in your face like some characters in the series) and popularity, or even better maybe even on gaming community somehow if they ever did another remake with Archanean FE games while doing the same marketing that they did on Awakening to make it popular, along with making her as the other lord besides Marth because, to be honest, she’s quite important in Shadow Dragon for an example.

She has been around since the 90s in the very first Fire Emblem during the NES era and she was such a nice addition while being the total opposite of a damsel in distress, just like other Nintendo characters such as Samus (Metroid) who were also much more popular. Unfortunately, there was no way for more people to know her since Fire Emblem games didnt come to the west until FE7 in the GBA so it was limited to Japan back in that time, anyway… she was cool (okay sorry if i’m being a bit too biased) before many other female characters in Fire Emblem, who are also quite admired and its totally fine, also showed up later on.

“But why?”

Caeda showed quite a lot of personality back in that time of FE1/FE3 too, she is your legit kindhearted character who shows a lot of empathy (like her nice relationship with Ogma, she intervened and saved him from such a troubled life that he had as a slave gladiator and even got him as a personal bodyguard) but she can also be quite strong and serious in some situations, even to the point of risking her own life, examples like Navarre’s recruitment: she literally went out of the way to recruit him into Marth’s army by going towards him and trying to persuade, it might have been way too risky from her and kinda stubborn at first to do such a thing though since it was either him joining the group or her life, but thankfully Navarre didnt do anything against her since he said he would never harm women and i also like this part since it shows her bravery and courage during a war.
And then there are also other examples of characters who are recruited by her, Castor, Samuel, Roger, Jake… honorable mention to her recruitment scene with Roger which is where it also shows more of a manipulative and cunning, smart side of her to take advantage from her beauty and charm in order to get more allies for Marth while putting the enemy at disadvantage. Another detail: it would be nice to see her as another lord besides Marth since she doesn’t fall into the naivety issue like other characters seem to do very often in the franchise (I don’t want to mention which ones though since this is a post mostly focused on Caeda after all, so I wouldnt like to go off-topic).

There are even support conversations of Marth and her in FE12 (btw supports conversations are a nice addition from the FE3 remake since i kinda missed her presence in the second book from Mystery of the Emblem, while in book 1 she was a lot more active, not to mention at how she’s also present in the prologue from FE12) where he is a bit worried about her position in combat and to possibly leave the front-lines due to her safety, but then she even makes clear to him about how she wants to stay at the front to fight alongside her husband and her allies instead of sitting in the back and watching every other members do their jobs, she wants to be useful not only for the army but also for Marth, as you can see she’s quite protective and fond of everyone who’s in the combat troops due to how she wants to help, especially him.
Also random comment right now, but seriously, she’s a true wife and Marth married such a great woman who would do anything to protect him just like he would for her.

And to finish, her Marth fiancee ending from Book 2 in Mystery of them Emblem:

“After the war her long-awaited dream was realised, as the day of her wedding with Marth came. Clothed in a snow-white dress, her appearance was as beautiful as an angel. And for her it was a joyous day that she would never forget in her life.”

they were so damn accurate and right on that one
