    • Alex

      did you know Amano was inspired by Gustav Klimt… that is why is are is similar.

    One of my personal favourites, Amano proves that video game concept art is not just doodles (as one of my drawing instructors at my previous university insisted).

  • Shea Kennedy

    I loved his work since the first day I layed eyes on it when I purchased FF. Since then he’s been my #1 favorite artist of all time. I’m so proud that he’s been posted here. His art style is known worldwide bringing us all back to our days of Nintendo and Final Fantasy.

  • Steve

    The awesome thing is that Amano directed a film…with his trademark style. It’s so gorgeous to look at:


  • Niko

    Yes! I too can recall of the days of Final Fantasy 3, happy times, and just as memorizing artwork

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon


Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
