    As promised, here’s my scanlation of the SMT1 OST liner notes that eirikrjs generously scanned that has Kazuma Kaneko talking shop about his pixel art philosophies. :D!

    There’s a decent amount of ground covered here considering how short it is. Some of his advice is a little dated, as indicated by his references to sprite color pallet limitations on consoles during SMT1’s heyday, but hopefully this is still a fun look into how some of Atlus’ most iconic demon designs were originally handled. Pretty unorthodox jumping immediately into sprite work for a lot of demons!

    For best readability, make sure to right click each image and either save it or open it in a new tab so that they can be viewed at full size.

    Thanks for reading!

    Click through for an interesting look at Kaneko’s fashion potential.

    Just rediscovered this piece, always good for a refresher though! 

     
  5. My personal favorite artworks by Kaneko. You can see I’m a bit biased toward the Persona pieces but I really love them!

    Liner note scans from the Shin Megami Tensei 1 OST detailing Kaneko’s demon sprite creation method, from a time before he turned into a ornery grandpa.

    Interesting look at the sprite creation process!

    Kaneko’s Crib Notes, Volume IX: King Frost

    Frost King has been America’s leading brand of weatherseal products for nearly a century (according to their website) so it’s no surprise that Kaneko looked to them for an influence when he was vexed by the concept of making a regal snow sprite.

    Lol!
