Earlier this Summer, I finally had a chance to go to one of Amano Yoshitaka's art exhibits. It's difficult to buy prints for Final Fantasy, of course. But Vampire Hunter D was available, so I bought one. Now my home walls won't be like a hospital. 😂
Vampire Hunter D is a horror manga from 1983 by Hideyuki Kikuchi and was illustrated by Amano. I've always loved the character design since reading the manga.
This exhibit has been on my bucket list for years. I've been a fan since I was in kindergarten. I remember, my brother and I received Final Fantasy 6 when we were children. The guide book had many characters designed by Amano. My brother and I would try to draw like that but the style was difficult and strange compared to what we had seen before. Particularly the eyes were mysterious. I saw the advertisement for the exhibit on the train and I went by myself, finally. 😊
Also, if anyone is familiar with Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman" comic book series, there is also a version illustrated by Amano!
