Just got thinking, if you could pick a historical artist or illustrator who were alive today, what series (comic, game, anime) would you like to see him draw/paint for?

Mine would probably be Ivan Bilibin doing Final Fantasy

Ah, art deco Final Fantasy? That would look pretty cool...

I'd probably want to see something that'd have a weird clash of style and content like Grant Wood (American Gothic guy) doing... like, King of Fighters art or something. Or something more appropriate like a pop artist doing art for EA Games or Halo 2.

oooh, good question!

First off I'd like to see Gustav Klimt do Final Fantasy. I think he must have been a big influence on Amano:

Then I'd like to see Hans Bellmer do a Megami Tensei title:

Then I'd like to see Frantisek Kupka try his hand at doing the Berserk Manga:

I'd also love to see what Hokusai would do with Pokemon:

I think Michaelangelo would have done a mean Kinnikuman:

I think August Rodin would do some awesome work for the Street Fighter series:

And just for kicks, Balthus should work on Hamtaro:

Great topic, indeed! And good choices so far. These are my two cents:

From Klimt, I myself would prefer to see something like an ďkami sequel on a celtic-european setting. I bet he would have done quite interesting things with cel shading and 3D images.

Now that you mention Hokusai, it would be priceless a cel shaded Ganbare Goemon with his designs as well. He would have loved to work on such a crazy project, I'm sure, and the edokko atmosphere suits him perfectly.

On the other hand, Sharaku would have done some great character designs and in-game portraits on a Samurai Spirits or even on an eventual Last Blade sequel. His skill to caricaturization are matchless.

I'd love to see a shunga (erotic ukiyoe) eroge by Utamaro as well. An Edo jidai setting, a playboy young sh˘gun in disguise (like MatsuKen in the Abarenb˘ Sh˘gun series) as the main character, and the goal of conquering the best oiran of Yoshiwara (with many other hookers in between) to clear the game... priceless.

Another good one would be a hack'n slash game by Sandro Botticelli, a la Sangoku Musou but with a european medieval or classic setting. Botticelli's classy and fancy touch would fit rather well on a Zelda game as well... hmm, but maybe on Zelda's case any Pre-Raphaelite artist would do it great too. It would be pretty neat, actually.

Salvador DalÝ would have designed some magnificent Castlevania bosses, and now that i think of it he would get along rather well with Fumito Ueda. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus' artistic bizarreness somewhat remind me of his works. But maybe it's just me.

And, of course, a Tetris done by Kandinski would reach a completely different meaning!

YES. He kicks Amano's ass, too.

I'd like to see Hieronymus Bosch do anything. Makaimura, maybe?

This reminds me of the classical art inspired Turn a Gundam painting Akiman did. Awesome awesome. I know I find ANY excuse to bring up Akiman, but it's relevant this time!

For Final Fantasy I'd have Maxfield Parrish. It would be awsome to travel through one of his forests. He's probably most famous for Ecstasy and Daybreak

Also for Final Fantasy and more inline with previous styles would be Edmund Dulac. Most notible for book illustrations like the Arabian Nights

For adventure games like Metal Gear I'd have local artists like NC Wyeth or Howard Pyle. Both are great at scenes of adventure and action. Pyle's Mermaid has been on of my most favorite paintings.

For fighting games like DOA I'd have my favorite artist Alphonse Mucha. He was one of the first artists to commercialize and sell sex. His women are amazing and propably the defining nouveau artist.

You explained the whole camera system some time ago, which was good.
But I want to know about a specific camera, theres a girl with (I think) are big boobs, and there seems to be a duck or something like that in between.

I would love to see Louise Bourgeois do the Silent Hill series.
