Example text

For famous artwork, it would be Phantasy Star, mainly. JS: Do you play the games and read the books which use your artwork? HY: Not reading, usually just flicking through it if I’m doing the cover. However, when drawing illustrations within novels, in order to create the illustration I have to read the book through. JS: The whole book, or just a section? HY: When I have to draw the inner illustrations I read the whole book. JS: Commendable. Some artists just draw based off a brief. HY: Ahh, is that right?

They have some kind of softness which you can’t simulate with 3D polygons. Apparently not only myself thought this, but also many colleagues did too.
