  • These remind me of Gustav Klimt

    • Alex

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

  • Eli

    Yeah, reminders of a lot of things, yet totally original. The last one is stunning…

  • I love how ethereal his artwork can be.

  • 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:
