    Default Amano's Later FF artwork

    For anyone here intrested in Amano's paintings from the early Final Fantasys, I came across his works from FF7 upward to FF12.

    Ah, I miss this art style. Back when the male characters looked, you know, male.

    anyways, great site, but I just never cared for this type of artwork. It's too...i dunno....looks like a child drew it. Meh, to each is own, so don't flame me for my opinions. I like the artwork more during the FFVII & VIII era.

    Nice photoshopping! What you guys think of the painting sof the FF9 and X cast?

    Daria, I came across this when I was looking for ref pics for some cosplay ideas and was reading some on Amano-related cosplays when someone posted this link. I wish it was in English though, love to read his bio..maybe buy an art book at the con next week too.

    I said the same thing once before and was flamed to no end for it.

    I've known about that site for a long time. :) Forget the Amano, check out the brilliant works of Nobuteru Yuuki and Kou & You Yoshinari. :P

    As for Amano, like everything related to Final Fantasy, he's vastly overrated (and completely lacking in variety), but I do like some of his older work to some extent (like the Final Fantasy 6 art and such).

    It's funny how people can knock great games just cause they sell well. Same thing happens around here for games like Madden and Half Life.

    But yeah, I much prefer the more realisitic style used in FF8 and 10 myself. One of the things I really loved about 8 was that you can tell how the charcters are feeling just by the way they move their bodies -- all very real and a great touch.

    Wow, it's really cool to see some FFVI artwork.

    But, I do wonder... why is Terra's hair blond? She has turquoise hair in the game...

    One thing I love about Amano's work is that it isn't anime, which automaticaly means it looks drastically different then the artwork done for every other video game.

    Stylistically though I love the way he weaves patterns through out his drawings. Sometimes the way he draws women bothers me, they all look alike. But I love the drawings he's done of Edgar, Locke and Steiner. And then there's another of Terra lounging on a mech over looking a city which is just really fucking cool.

    And I don't even particuarily like FF6.

    Anyway I just appreciate how different his artwork is.
