Hello my fellow CA members!
Today i want to share some my personal Artworks with you but before that, i would like to say a couple words.
As some maybe know, Yoshitaka Amano was my big idol when i was young and his work has influenced me a lot.
I want to share some unpublished artworks from 1992 - 1999 that show this 'Influence'
Being a professional artist and game developer i still have my personal interests and hobbies, just like everyone else and
Final Fantasy is now since almost 20 years my greatest hobby. My private FF collection is among the largest in the world
and i have been traveling around the world to attend some of the FF events like the 25th anniversary event in Tokyo this year.
To cut the long story short, i am as we speak finalist in the official SquareEnix Final Fantasy Super fan contest and
it is looking good for me
here is the link to the voting page if you are intersted to see the results http://superfan.ff25th-anniversary.com/en/super-fans

i was 6 when i drew this. It is not FF related but as you can see i always liked castles and fantasy.
I was 14 when i drew this picture, at that time i was playing FF VI on snes and was doing
research on other work of Yoshitaka Amono. Ihad discovered that he painted the coverartworks of
the vampire Hunter D novels, this was one of my first artworks inspired by him, even tho my drawings were still crude.
This is some artwork i did in 1994 when i was 16, its a quick acrylic painting with a brush on paper
I started this one in 1995 but never finished it for some reason.
At the age of 17 i was already heavily influenced by the art of Yoshitaka Amano who became my idol.
This is another painting from 1995
This is a tribute artwork for Final Fantasy VII, i painted it right after the release of the game in 1997,
both because i loved FF and at the same time as a personal protest because i was very disappointed that
Yoshitaka Amano was not the character designer of this title.
this is a ball pen drawing on paper from 1998
It shows some influence from Tetsuya Nomura
a painting from 1998, it was one of my last painting using this style.
Yoshitaka Amano was my idol but bot out of respect for him i decided not to copy his style any longer
and instead strife to become a great artist myself. I would pick up this style sometimes to make a homage to Amano years later.
a quick ballpen drawing of a chocobo from 1998.
and now the newer FF artworks
a digital painting of Tonberry from couple years ago
a portrait of Yoshitaka Amno dressed in a gatchaman costume
Thanks for watching!
