The Art Of Bravely Default 2010-2013 Art Book

(I mentioned this art book previously in one of my Digest posts.)

Bravely Default is a role-play game developed by Square Enix, with art and character design by Akihiko Yoshida. Despite the game’s somewhat silly name, Akihiko-san’s art work is gorgeous and this book contains a really sumptuous collection of the beautiful illustrations he has created for the game.

I enjoy both the artist’s regularly proportioned characters and the chibi-fied (dwarvish) versions.

(above) There’s even a small collection of storyboards that I presume are for the cut scenes in the game ?

I’ve not played Bravely Default before but I do so love Akihiko Yoshida’s art work, and this book is filled from cover to cover with it. Recommended.

If you’re a fan of Akihiko’s work, I also highly recommend the equally beautiful, hard covered art book for Tactics Ogre. ( book review here. )

Awesome! I love final fantasy. Feels like the old FF2 (American) and FF Tactics.

Ha, I’m the same, I haven’t played this or Tactics Ogre but got both books because I love Akihiko Yoshida’s art work.

Great review, Vong!

I’m pretty sure Akihiko Yoshida has done a ton of other work, because I see lots of them on tumblr pages. We need more of his art books ! :]
