Yoshitaka Amano, Kazuko Shibuya | From paper to pixel
A Cutscenes documentary!
35 years ago, at the dawn of the Final Fantasy series, a collaboration was born between artist Yoshitaka Amano, taking his first steps in the game industry and striving illustrator Kazuko Shibuya, who had just entered Square as a new grad.
She had the daunting task of translating Amano’s work into pixels, while he kept creating some of the series’ most iconic character designs. The two of them reminisced on the early days, up until the pinnacle of their craft with Final Fantasy VI.
