I loved Amano's designs for this one. I hated Aeris's face, but it was still excellent. It looks from what I've seen of the FF7 designs that Amano's clothing was chosen and Nomura's facial design and such was, too. I thought the colors were really beautiful on Amano's.

Amano's style is unrealistic, distorted and oftentimes very lightly colored if colored at all. But its because of those qualities that makes his style so much more surreal.

Nomura's style is realistic, plain, and dull to look at. But those realistic qualities are easier to create in a videogame.

But since we're comparing artwork and not CG, Amano ftw. Nomura is too stuck on drawing whiny teenagers wearing boring business suits to care much for unique style (not counting his work on KH and FFX).

I was gonna post Amano Sephy, but it looks like you will eventually.

Nomuras style is realistic lmao?

Nomuras characters all look exactly the same. He overdoes zippers and chains. He does either a really good job, or a flat out poor job.

I was referring to facial features and body sizes. Amano's character sketches come in crazy shapes.

You're acting as if you can do better than he can. :/

Nomura I think did a better job on this one, though I'd hope in the next few you'd try as best you can to find similar drawings, this one had 2 completely different drawings, so it's rather hard to compare fairly

Amano makes them look too feminine, and I think he cluttered the peice up too much with random things such as the birds and rabbits. The odd facial structure and lack of detail on the skin is off to me and Aeris looks more like some prostitute that Cloud picked up, rather than herself. And as said before, it seems too unrealistic; Cloud's neck is skinny and long, thier fingers are like sharp twigs, and it took me forever to realize that Cloud's arms bent at a point, I half thought his left arm was just a stump

On Nomura's peice, though it's only Clouds face, it just seems so much more decent to me than Amano's. The shading on the face is excellent, and the detail on his collar/shirt and his hair pleases the eye more.

To TMM I thought that I had two of the same pics of them..(meaning Amano's C&A and Nomura C&A)..but I didnt sorry...the next pics will be the same..I'll post them Tommorrow...anyways..on this Amano just adds too much stuff into the picture...and yeah Nomura's features can easily be added into a video game....but like others have said they look dull and the same....mostly too many zippers and belts...and odd things like a metal piece of armor on someones kneecap...just things that are out there at times....since I could only get a Facial pic of Cloud...in comparison to Amano I have to go with Nomura....Next I will have pics from FFX's Yuna...(hopefully..why..cuz..I wanna take a break from FFVII..lol)
