Auction ending today, thought I’d make a post just for it. Below is what the seller says in the auctions description:
“This is a One-of-a-kind Yoshitaka Amano drawing of the character “Rydia” or “Rydia of Mist” from Final Fantasy IV. In the North American release is was Final Fantasy II on the SNES. Amano rarely does any detailed drawings of Final Fantasy characters, and most of his work has been licensed for Lithograph/Serigraph replications by Vivant Art which are the closest and of the highest quality to the original work. Yoshitaka Amano made an appearance at Comic Con in San Diego on July 23, 2010 where he sat at a booth and did signings as well as display some of his work. One of the contests at Comic Con was an opportunity to get Amano to draw an illustration for you. The winner of the event had Amano draw Rydia from Final Fantasy IV in color on the spot which he did on cardboard like paper. It measures 27.9 cm x 35.6 cm which is a pretty big size. The colors used were yellow, pink, gold and black. I’ve owned several original art from Amano, but never this size and with this detail. None of them were Final Fantasy related. I personally have never seen any art geared towards Final Fantasy IV by Amano, even the replications are extremely hard to find. This is truly an impressive drawing by Amano as it captures his style. This is your chance to own an original art piece hand drawn by Yoshitaka Amano himself. The piece is literally priceless as it’s the only one of it’s kind. I doubt you’ll ever see an original art piece by Amano on eBay that is Final Fantasy related. The only way to get a drawing would be to meet him yourself in person which is close to impossible and he most likely wouldn’t dedicate time to drawing up an original illustration.
The drawing is 100% genuine and authentic guaranteed. Below you will find a picture taken of Amano at the San Diego Comic Con when he did the drawing. This is currently framed for protection and it looks impressive in person. The auction does not include the frame or the Final Fantasy II SNES box. This will be shipped using Fed Ex priority with full insurance and tracking. I will package this with extreme care. If you have any questions feel free to send me a message. ”
