I ♥ Yoshitaka Amano

I also ♥ Final Fantasy IV, which is why I'm sharing these scans of the (Japanese PlayStation version of the) game's instruction manual.

Here are Amano's depictions of Dark Knight Cecil and Paladin Cecil:

Cain and Rosa:

Edge, "Foo-Soo-Ya" (aka FuSoYa), Palom, Porom and Yang:

Cid, Gilbert, Rydia and Tella:

I'm particularly fond of Amano's rather effeminate take on Tella.

Let's try this again...it was mad at me for posting a comment earlier...

This is cool! I was particularly fond of the artwork in the player's guide for FF3 (6) for the SNES!

Oh, yeah, the stuff he created for FF3/6 is *amazing*! Also, I have that same Player's Guide :)
