Character Design

1. Is there a particular connection between each character’s outfit and their personality?

Nomura-san: I tried to exaggerate each character’s image according to the essence of his/her personality.

2. Which came first? Were characters designed to match the Tokyo setting, or was the setting molded to fit the characters’ style?

The real-world Tokyo setting came first as the foundation. Though the game is set in the real world, we can create a fantasy-world feel as long as it’s somewhere users never been to, I thought.

3. How are characters’ outfits related to their behavior?

The outfits are based solely on characters’ personalities and not their moral nature in the game.

4. Were any of the characters based on specific people?
All were created from scratch.

Cool sketches. But am I only one who notices Neku's unnatural pose? He looks like he has muscle dystrophy. Just saying. And Numora's character designs are awesome but they're all so anorexic! O_O Neku looks like you could bend and snap his spine without effort! And Shiki is just whoa. @_@ Not to mention Sho is definitely giving the finger. Which I lol'd at. XD But yea, not dissing or anything. I love his art style!

How many designs did you make or were the first ones the ones you kept, no editing or redesigning?

I ask if I may be e-mailed Hishigawa's concept arts?
It's mainly because I find drawing him fun, and also, I'm art Role-Playing him.
He's also a great ref for dreadlocks, but I can only find the same image of him everywhere, and it's always too small.
Of course I would ALWAYS cite the reference!
