I’m less than familiar with Square Enix’s Tactics Ogre roleplaying game, myself not much of a gamer these days but I couldn’t pass up such gorgeous art work –
The book is a veritable treasure trove of fantasy art work, cover to cover, by long time Square Enix character designer/illustrator Akihiko Yoshida and Tsubasa Masao. Don’t let the publishers hear this, but I was expecting a price tag of about 30-50% more for so splendid a collection of art work (231 pages), bound in a nice hard cover volume, no less.
Makes me want to play the game after seeing all these beautiful character designs. Any readers out there played this ?
(above) An interview with Masao-san, Akihiko’s interview is also in the book . (below) A rare glimpse of his work desk, at first glance I can see a partially hidden Hellboy comic and of course James Jean’s Fables.
