Do you guys have any favorite artist(s) who worked on game CGs or character designs?

My favorites are Aoi Nishimata, Goto-P, and Akino Takehiko.

Nishimata for example, Nishimata's それは舞い散る 櫻のように character designs are simply wonderful. I ended up liking all of characters in that game. XP

Nishimata's Minagi drawing is my favorite picture of her

Goto-P's characters look bit too chibi(meaning under-aged kid), but looks good neverthless.

I like Takehiko's arts the most. ^^

Well.... I kinda like Carnelian-san's character designs too, but I only liked her Kao no Nai Tsuki character designs. Canelian also drew Misuzu from AIR for heck of it, and it came out really nice. I just can't find the picture... Where did I put it???

I can't exactly pin-point what exactly pulls me to his work. I guess I just find his character designs attractive.

.....and most of Aoi Nanase's stuff

Not to mention CO2A Komatsu's work on Tristia of the Deep Blue Sea and Planetarian.

I'm still green enough that I don't know a whole heck of a lot of game artists (unless our scope here also goes outside of the visual novel genre) but after playing Planetarian and then seeing his homepage, I definately like Mr. Nopan Komatsu's work - the way he renders eyes, especially, is what caught my interest.

Semi-related, I love the sprite art of the characters for Eternal Fighter Zero.

Oh, any game artist is fine.
