Naru Omori is a veteran video game artist who has spent pretty much his entire career at Capcom, both in the company’s Japanese and North American studios. In that time, he’s contributed to series like Resident Evil, Dead Rising and Devil May Cry.

For such an accomplished artist in the field, he actually has a pretty interesting story; most artists grow up drawing monsters and ease right into the industry, but Omori actually studied to be a beautician. It was only when he was forced to quit this line of work due to health reasons that he focused on his art, and having worked at a smaller studio in Tokyo for a few years in the late 90s he was scouted by Capcom. The rest is part of Capcom history.

You can see more of Omori’s work at his personal site.
