    Yoshitaka Amano

    Just curious if there are any other Fans of this Mans work present?

    If so id love to hear of where you heard from him.
    I have yet to meet someone who dosn't know him first from Final Fantasy. hehe
    Or any paintings that you like the most.

    Im a big fan of his work
    somehow it just connects with me...I dont really draw anything like him.
    But he is one of my all time fave.

    I went through a big Amano phase a year or two ago, went out and bought three of his art books. Some of my favorite work was what he did with Vampire Hunter D.

    I don't like his stuff much. Anyways, RPGamer has a few pieces of his in the Final Fantasy game sections.

    I'm actually a bigger fan of the DragonWarrior/Quest designs by... yes, the DragonBall main-man himself, Akira Toriyama! Indeed, his anatomy is stinky, but his tech and costume designs sort of makes it up.

    Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.

    Akira Toriyama is deffenetly cool.
    Can you say CRONO TRIGGER hehe.
    I like them both.
    They both have a knack for costumes. Amano uses lots of patterns and very flowing material where Toriyama uses stronger shapes..bit bolder.
    both have add a great feel in such different styles.

    Some people like his work, one friend of mine said everything he makes looks like "a retarded french clown". I guess it's all a matter of taste.

    Lol, his original depiction of Quina (FF9) certainly looks like a retarded french clown . Personally, I don't "get" his art. But there are a few pieces of his that I like more than a bit, including that Sandman cover and some of his FF6 paintings.

    I like his style. I've got his "Amano First" book. Good stuff, maybe I'll scan a pic in.

    I knew of him from WAY before FF--when he worked on Vampire Hunter D and Angel's Egg, etc. In the '80s--so ten or twenty years ago, maybe? I had all his art books in Japanese and have his tarot book and cards around somewhere.

    I prefer his earlier stuff to his later stuff, but still check his website out and buy things (like the Sandman book--I love Sandman), now and then.
