This is the approved The Fanlistings Network fanlisting for Yoshitaka Amano, an amazingly talented, prolific Japanese artist, illustrator, and designer who creates some of the most original and beautiful artworks imaginable. He is a freelance illustrator, and he has done everything from anime and video game character designs (such as Gatchaman and Final Fantasy), to novel illustrations (like Vampire Hunter D and Arslan Chronicles), to film collaborations and set designs, and, of course, his own personal work.

According to TFL.org, a fanlisting is "a web clique that lists fans of a particular subject. Unlike most web cliques, a person does not need a web site in order to join. Fans from around the world submit their information to their approved fanlisting and they are then listed to show their love for the subject."

I created this fanlisting because Amano is one of my favorite artists. I adore his unique style - it is graceful and elegant, but at the same time vivid and powerful. His art is highly imaginative and wonderful; his works are, to resort to a cliche, unearthly beautiful, which is where the site title comes from. Although I've mostly been exposed to his Final Fantasy art (of which I'm a huge fan - I own his The Sky boxset, which is fabulous), I adore all of his works. His work is just breathtaking.

Please note that this site is not affiliated with Mr. Amano in any way. This site is completely fan run. If you'd like to send him a message, buy some of his work, or see some of his art, head on over to AmanosWorld.com, his official website.

The current layout features an image by Amano from his Stones publication. The layout was designed in Paint Shop Pro 8.0, handcoded into HTML in Editpad, and is W3C XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliant. The members script is powered by Enthusiast.
