I know. I'd take Masaki Hirooka then, the art is truly amateur-ish.

That Michiru song gave me the shudders tho.

Ok...

Your view of what is amateurish is definitely different than mine, that picture Claimh Solais posted above is something "truly amateur-ish"

No, it's really not.

Who knows...Kojima might even find time to contribute a bit of art herself.

Some 'amateur' artists, i.e. non-professionals, can be better than many professional artists imo.  It depends on the artist.

Whoever is doing the art is doing their damnedest to channel Ayami Kojima. I think it looks okay, and it's certainly not like the art from Dawn or Portrait.

I agree that the art isn't on Kojima's level, but I don't think it's bad at all. And if Kojima's too busy, well, there's nothing to be done, she's a professional woman with her own commitments, and we have to respect that. :)

We might be surprised by having a special art insert by Kojima somewhere on the physical copy in the future. Who knows?

I understand the criticism towards the art style, I'm not going to get worked up or form an opinion over anything until I have seen the actual game. They are clearly in the midst of pre-production trying to get production off the ground, so things are subject to change from this point to whenever the game releases. I'm optimistic in thinking this game will surprise and delight us.

Well the game is still in the very early development faze right now, who's to say that Ayami Kojima can't show up at some point down the road (once her commitments are done) and take over the artwork?

I hope that is the case, nothing wrong with this artwork but having Kojima back would just be the icing on a already delicious cake.

That's an extremely unprofessional way of handling the artwork, though. If there is another artist creating art for the game, and hell, they are in the middle of it, they shouldn't just replace the artist. As much as I love Ayami, if IGA let it slide and they got rid of the current artist when they've already put out pieces, I'd lose respect for IGA.

I like the artist.



They made Miriam a cutie! I'm interested in seeing how this artist tackles the designs of certain monsters and demons for the game.
