Welcome to Flight to Fantasy, my shrine dedicated to the oustanding artist Yoshitaka Amano!  
  Yoshitaka Amano is a greatly admired Japanese illustrator. He is mostly known worldwide for his brilliant inspirational contribution to the Final Fantasy series and this shrine will concentrate on that part of his work, for it is little developed in his official site. Yet, the scope of his art is much greater. He also works as a painter, designer, and illustrated many books and animation series.  
  His main influences seem to be Gustave Klimt, as well as traditional Japanese brush paintings. He privileges expressiveness to rigididity and realism, often bending the strict rules of proportions, in order to emphasise the expressiveness, the dramatic or poetic effect of the characters he paints. He often places a small creature (see background images) next to the characters he draws, probably to hint at their personality.
