A while ago, I came to know (and like) an artist named Goto Nao. Nice artist, you know. Cute style, pretty good with backgrounds, but somewhat obscure.
So, when I saw the art for Koiiro soramoyou, I immediately went “Hurray! More stuff!” Until I realized that the art for the game was credited to someone named Lucie. Cue surprise and confusion.
At this point, I feel no shock to see similar artists. It’s just too much trying to tell
and Misaki Kurehito from
But if you look really closely, there are definitely differences. I can’t figure out if these differences are because they are drawn by different people or because they were drawn at different times (and because of the influence of the studio ryokucha CG team).
If they’re different people, I have to wonder how they became so similar.
If they are, in fact, one and the same, I have to wonder why different names are used. It’s not like Goto Nao just decided to take up a pseudonym, as the old Galaxy’s Child site is still maintained (kind of). Unless is was a name change and a head dive into 18+ material, in which case this is just a bunch of random, useless blabbering.
Hmm… I wonder…
