Yoshitaka Amano—the famous Japanese artist best known for his character illustrations in the early Final Fantasy games–has created a beautiful hand-painted illustration to promote Ubisoft Montreal’s upcoming platforming RPG Child of Light. In the fascinating video below, you can watch the artist’s process as he creates the piece. As someone who dabbles with digital painting, I am always deeply impressed by traditional artists such as Yoshitaka Amano who manage to create such beautiful work without the assistance of ‘control z’ to save them from mistakes.
Child of Light is coming to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC on April 30. You can see a trailer for the game at the bottom of the page.
