Default Awesome Official Art thread

I'd like to say I did my best to make sure there wasn't an official art thread before starting this, I'm certain there was. I checked via the forum search function & tag search, and Google, using several variations. If it does exist, it's probably buried so deep, it's turning into oil.

So! Cool official art from 1st party or licensed 3rd party sources; post it here.



More here, available as prints.

I love it. That said, of course Luigi has to be the one to get them coffee.

100% honest here, Power Stone was my Game of the Show for PAX this past year. I'd never played it before and a new remake would be awesome.

From the original post, looks like it was just a random full-page illustration for an anime mag. Good stuff!

Not actually by Takahashi though, illustrator credit in the top left says Katsuhiko Nishijima.

EDIT: which the linked original post also said, derp.

It seemed that the artist was also an animator on some Lum anime titles, and I figured that was close enough.

So many animators developed their careers working on early Takahashi titles, you can still see trace amounts of her DNA in modern character designs. Well, hers, Akemi Takada's, or Atsuko Nakajima's (both 80s and 90s versions of Atsuko Nakajima, for better or worse).

Interesting to see some of them can still emulate Takahashi's rounder, cartoonier, late 70s/early 80s style. I wonder if Takahashi herself would still draw something in it. You'd never see Rei and Ran's expressions in something like Rinne!

Not to mention, Takahashi never devoted that much detail to the pelvic area, as seen on Ryuunosuke there.
