i think he must be working on a huge canvas. and he just dabs the paint on
from far away or when the images are shrunk into prints, the dots just merge, yet no flatness... it makes a very rich, living colour. just like an impressionist

gius, one of the tricks looks like what is called "tarashikomi".

ah ! thank you runner
i'll try it tonight and see what happens :-D

The tarshikomi technique is an art form were, while the colored paint is still wet, one drops more ink onto the painting, making several layers, usually in a dripping form for fine details such as ripples in water or flower petals on a tree.

wikipedia.org
the title seems fixed now...
& it's search-able too.

I love his art work, specially the illustrations he does for the final fantasy games. They are to die for *_*

from http://gallery.aethereality.net/list/artist/84/ (really urge you all to visit this link, it's one of the best galleries for this artist along with his own website that I have found).

Yoshítaka Amano has hands down been my favourite artist since I was 11 (and picked up my first Final Fantasy game). Also introduced me to Gustav Klimt, another of my favourites.

thanks a lot for the link, edelweiss! there is a lot i haven't seen before there..

does he sometimes make work that's not part of a story? like non-manga or video game
there is this one i'm curious about --not sure what it is about. sort of reminds me of the paintings of Hell by Hieronymus Bosch

He has also done a lot of set design and stained glass works. As far as I know most of the works in that gallery are from his 1989 exhibition Hiten. A few are also from his first publicised collection of paintings in 1984 Maten (Evil Universe). They both seem to be a collection of works he has done for various games, mangas and written works.

That image is from Maten (it's the front cover of the publication). I can't id exactly what it's from however...

He has done a lot of work not related to gaming etc. If you take a look at the bibliography section of his site (http://www.amanosworld.com/html/biblioindex.html) there's brief descriptions of his various other works & the inspirations behind them.

I've always loved Amano's work, the delicacy of it is amazing. Very iconic, I was first introduced to his work through the Final Fantasy series. Love the ominous/art nouveau feel to his work...

I first became aware of his work through his illustrations for the Vampire Hunter D novels and The Dream Hunter which is a Sandman series spinoff. It's a really, really gorgeous book- not just for the illustrations, but the story is a lovely one too. And his drawing style is amazing- so lush and intricate, not at all typical of most comic artwork today (I'd say CLAMP draws manga with a lot of flourishes too, but it's in black and white and has a completely different spirit).

Drusilla that behemoth artwork picture is one of my favorites. I love how the Warrior of Light and companions are totally at a disadvantage. I still want the Special edition FFXI soundtrack so I can get the huge overworld art foldout.

^ agreed, Desi. I wish the autocensor would stop blocking out his name though- every configuration in which those letters are used together is not a swearword!
