Portrait of Nobuo Uematsu by randis Portrait of Nobuo Uematsu by randis
2 Weeks ago (12 jan 2013) i had the chance to meet the Composer Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon) in person.
As a present i gave him a Canvas print with a painting of himself.
I have loved his work for over 20 years now and am a big fan
You have also met a number of other people from Square Enix and had a interview with Famitsu in Paris,
you can read more about it and see photos here: [link]

And you can follow my Final Fantasy Collection on Facebook: [link]

cheers
Randis

That puts a smile on my face. Great painting. The likeness is spot-on. He must have been as thrilled to receive it as you were to present it to him; probably even more so.

great painting! The smile of the painting and the real person(Nobuo), they are exactly the same. I like the details, colors and design. So everything =)

What an amazing opportunity and a wonderful gift.
As for the piece itself: it's almost exactly what one would imagine Uematu's studio to look like.
I also love the added monocle over the right eye, nice touch.

Looking at everything you presented, truly you deserve the title of being the greatest Final Fantasy fan! I myself am a hardcore one, having played Final Fantasy I to IX. I'm absolutely glad to see such fans as you are still around and remain true to the greatest RPG of all time! I applaud you ser in utmost magnificence!

This work to show support to ser Nobuo Uematsu is truly grand! May it forever be imprinted to the mind of the greatest game music composer! No words can describe my absolute revere to his works, both Final Fantasy and others (such as Lord of Arcana's "vs. Master Guardian I").

Glory to you ser! Glory to Final Fantasy!

Nobuo is one of the greatest composers alive today. He rivals even the classic composers (and clearly draws influences from them). One of my favourite musicians if all time.

I must say, that painting will become one of Uematsu's grand treasures, and it was very lovely for you to make the gift for him and in result he loved it! Great job! :D
