"Y. Amano's Random Game/Anime Fanart?" , posted Mon 26 Jan 14:11:post reply

Okay, I've stumbled upon something very interesting. A Japanese blog site, that SEEMINGLY has Amano taking fans' requests to draw random Anime and Game characters. I honestly can't tell if this is really Amano or an impersonator (Amano's style is so unique, I'd think it would be incredibly hard to imitate, and this looks as legit as could be), but the artwork is SO DAMN COOL, even if it was an impersonator it's still quite impressive.

For those who don't want to wade through all 14 pages, here are some notable entries

If you get a 403 error try copy+pasting the link.

Chun-Li (Street Fighter)
Franziska and Manfred von Karma (Phoenix Wright)
Edward Elric from FMA
Bobobo
Reisz from Seiken Densetsu 3
Mario and Peach
Lynx from CC (I think)
Xenogears
Kibito and Supreme Kai from DBZ
Final Fantasy Ero (don't worry it's SFW)
Console Wars (he drew this when asked to do "360 vs Wii vs PS3"
Mokoto and Batou from GitS
Light from Death Note
Detective Conan
Jackie Chan
Solid Snake
Mario (using the same base as Snake)
Nia from Gurren Lagann
Eva 01
Faye Valentine from Coyboy Bebop
Eureka, Renton, aaaaand I forgot the other guy's name at the moment from Eureka 7
Haruhi
DIO
Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
FFIV Cast
Golbez and Fusoya casting Meteor (FFIV)
Kefka and the Statues (FFVI)

And there's a WHOLE LOT MORE over there (14 pages) and it seems to be ongoing with occasional updates.

Any insight from someone fluent in Japanese on this would be helpful ^^

Sorry, it says at the very top that it's just a thread for drawing pictures in Amano's style (the blog collects threads the author found entertaining at 2ch). Some aren't bad, though. It's not someone impersonating Amano or anything, just a 2ch thread of people tossing out different characters to be attempted.

At first, I was just laughing at the novelty, but some of those are actually really cool illustrations! I like the Kamen Rider and DMC ones best.

Ah okay thanks, the mystery was driving me nuts. Like I said though, even if it was a fan work, it's still pretty impressive.

Thanks for making my morning improductive

^_^;

Personal favourites (haven't looked at even a fraction of the whole thing though):
- That Ed got really well Amano'ed while keeping faithful to his design.
Normal stuff with an Amano-face sticked on them:

- http://blog-imgs-21.fc2.com/k/s/k/ksklog/viploader637498.jpg - semaphore
And the one that really got me:
- http://blog-imgs-21.fc2.com/k/s/k/ksklog/viploader637085.jpg - PuyoPuyo
That tragic touch... That sad look...
Amazing.

EDIT:
- A honorable mention must go to "Her Majesty the Queen of England dancing with Darth Vader who just shoryuken'd Kim Jong-Il"
