With the FF-series, or rather

With the FF-series, or rather the later titles in it, it's interesting how Amano's art style is never translated directly into the game. It's quite unfortunate really and begs the question why he's doing the concepts in the first place, when the characters eventually get "dumbed down" into more generic looking 3d versions.
Usually the concepts and final 3d renditions are closer to each other in style than with the FF-series and I feel like they have Amano draw up the initial concepts just so they can say "Hey look, we have THE Yoshitaka Amano making art for our game(s)!", even though the work is hardly seen *in* the game.

I must say, a real Amano-style Final Fantasy could look very neat though. We need more artistic interpretations in games anyway.
