Art and Video Games: Kazuma Kaneko

Kazuma Kaneko is an artist acclaimed to fame for his contributions to Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner and Devil May Cry 3, but his most known contributions come from the Megami Tensei series.  His illustrations are equally attractive and eerie; Kaneko’s demons are often an interesting interpretation of mythologies and religions, while the humans, though regularly having gaudy fashion sense, are pale and contemplative.  Kaneko’s style is a strange mixture of the vivid and the melancholy.
