Before I decided between doing Arabian Nights and Dorian Gray, I had already begun looking at the illustrations of Yoshitaka Amano, I knew of him primarily because of his illustrations for the Final Fantasy series of video games, but then, so does everyone else. I tend to avoid most Japanese illustrators because of the stigma weeaboos have shat all over everything to do with Japan, but PAH! I say, his illustrations are beautiful. AND HE USES COLOUR! ACTUAL COLOUR!
