At Comic-Con in New York today, Square Enix rounded up Final Fantasy XIII-2 art director Isamu Kamikokuryo and Deus Ex: Human Evolution art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete to speak in a panel-debate moderated by former Newsweek editor N’Gai Croal. The topic: eastern versus western art. The outcome: the directors’ take on each region’s art styles.
Square Enix public relations, being the amazing team they are, set us up with a front-row seat to record the panel. We were supposed to live blog it, but due to internet and connection difficulties, that unfortunately didn’t happen. Though, the end result was even better. Watch the full panel below. And stay tuned till the end, where Kamikokuryo-san draws his take on Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Jacques-Belletet draws his on Final Fantasy XIII-2. Or, you know, just look at them below.
Be sure to let us know whose art you enjoyed most.
