Akimando is a collection of game illustration works by Japanese artist Akira Yasuda, more commonly known by his handle Akiman. The volume houses 45 pieces of art work done through the period from 2005 to 2009.
Each completed illustration is accompanied by an initial concept / rough sketch by Akiman, and the captions provide additional background information on the game, as well as comments by the artist himself.
While its probably apparent by now that Akiman’s forte seem to be in scantily clad, busty females, often with erotic undertones, in the artist’s defense he is also perfectly capable of churning out more PG rated illustrations that are just as amazing, as can be seen in the highly recommended Capcom’s Art of Street Fighter.
