  1. Oh yeah – i was following this competition – although i didnt enter myself (im terrible with coming up with my own designs but i love seeing others come up with such wonderful work)
    All the ones that entered were sooooo good! – many of which shouldve been in the game! :)
    The prize for winning was pretty awesome – and they all got a drawing done by Nomura himself (i love his handwriting btw xD )

  2. I always like looking at Tetsuya’s work. I just wish I knew what kind of brush he uses (at least the lines in the drawing look like strokes from a brush ^-^)
