About Yoshitaka Amano Illustrations

Since beginning his career at age fifteen with the legendary animation studio Tatsunoko Production, Yoshitaka Amano has become one of the most acclaimed artists and illustrators at work today. Displaying a rare range, his oeuvre encompasses everything from minutely observed still-life sketches to full-color paintings on an epic scale, from children's storybooks to dark adult fantasy, from theatrical productions to video games to sculpture to commercial design.

Yoshitaka Amano: Illustrations offers a concise survey of this remarkable artist's career to date. It includes selected full-color pieces for series such as Final Fantasy, Vampire Hunter D, and Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets), as well as for Amano's own creations like Hero and N.Y. Salad.

A Good Art Book That Provides a Broad Overview Of Amano's Work

by -

This my first art book I've bought that features Amano's work. It's full of sketches and full illustrations, such as Final Fantasy, Guin Saga, Heroic Legend of Arslan,and Gatchaman (and more series that I'm not as familiar with). It also has a good balance of text and images. Although, I'm more of a fan of art books that don't have text. Even so, I did learn some interesting facts about Amano from the interviews in this book.
Overall, this is a good first introduction art book to Amano; a good price and features a broad overview of his stuff. But I will still be on the look out for a more expansive art book featuring some of the series that I'm more interested in.
