KYMG2 : Kozaki Yusuke Illustrations Art Book

KYMG:2 is the follow up to Japanese illustrator Kozaki Yusuke’s earlier art book titled KYMG. ( read full review here ) While the caliber of art work in his first book was already great to begin with, KYMG:2 shows a marked improvement in his skill level and the quality of illustrations are definitely up a notch.

Some of the book contents include art work for No More Heroes 2, Fire Emblem Awakening, and some pieces he did for the comic Gantz. ( see below ). There’s also an appendix with thumbnail images at the end of the book that you can use to identify each art work.

There’s lots to like in here, and I look forward to more art books from this great artist in the near future. Highly recommended.

Also be sure to check out his earlier art book KYMG if you haven’t already.
