Watch Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Art Director Rock Those Painting Skills

on September 10, 2012 2:03 PM

During the presentation of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII there was an oil painting by Art Director Isamu Kamikokuryo on display, portraying Lightning herself.

Today Square Enix published a video that shows Kamikokuryo-sensei as he works on the piece of art. We also get to catch a glimpse on the studio and the tools he used.

While it’s not exactly gameplay, it’s a very interesting window on the work that gets done much before we see a game actually taking shape. You can enjoy the video below.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
