Just need to be able to throw tomatoes at the bad guys with a new theme.
Hey guys,
I am currently looking for an artist for an upcoming project. it's a decently long product with a lot of art assets. I am looking for a bit of a unique style. You will of course be paid and I am hoping the style can be similar to anime or american comics such as Greg Capullo or Jim Lee.

It would help if you are good in gothic, blood, facial expressions and action posses as well as the idea of having some joke items thrown in as well

Please contact me at - Jackiefhan@hotmail.com if interested.

BRING ON THE RAIN!

Also, I want to shake this man's hand! He breathed the life into both games with his extraordinary musicianship!

What about Yuzo Koshiro's Shenmue involvement?

Yes, where are Koshiro and Mitsuyoshi? It's great to have Iuchi on board but it would be even better to have all three of them. Koshiro and Mitsuyoshi are geniuses of their own as well.

Koshiro's involvement was overrated in Shenmue anyway IMO, although his orchestra arrangement was awesome. Hiring Mitsuyoshi should be the priority if Yu can afford him.

Completely agree, haven't stopped listening to the music this whole 14 years, some truly beautiful pieces. As for tomorrow's update...sounds...interesting...

^Koshiro's arrangement versions were just out of this world. Don't know how much of the other stuff in the games he actually composed. Mitsuyoshi did a lot, as far as I know. Including the Shenmue main theme, Memories of Distant Days, Nozomi and Ryo, Reveive a Skill to Succeed and many other beloved Shenmue songs.

Anyway, as they are both Sega legends, it would be awesome to have either one of them, or better, both of them on board. [-o<

EDIT: Just saw on Video Gamer Radio that even the legendary Bar Linda Theme is Mitsuyoshi-San's work! =D>

Be careful with that, I don't think Video Gamer Radio is a reliable source, especially for the tracks outside the Orchestra album.

Here's a post that Ruji Iuchi put up on his blog yesterday which I've translated. It adds some more background to his experiences with Shenmue I and II. Thanks to Ziming for pointing it out.

Shenmue 3
2015/07/02

After around 15 years, I'm honored to once again get involved with the sound for Shenmue 3.

I'd like to talk about some things I didn't have time to mention in the video clip. (Sorry for the long post).

I feel very honored to be able to participate in this project, and be able work to compose pieces together again with Yu-san and all the other wonderful creators.

The impression that sticks with me most from working on the previous Shenmue games was being able to work together with the wonderful music staff - such as Yuzo Koshiro from Ancient Corp, who I greatly respect and who invited me onto the project, and Takenobu Mitsuyoshi from Sega - and to actually meet face-to-face with them at the company.
I believe that my experiences from that time made the foundation for what I am today.
Being able to have the chance to work together with them again is one of my dreams.

I had a lot of discussions and conversations with the sound staff, headed by the sound leaders Miysuyoshi-san and Takagi-san, and even used to sleep overnight at the company.
I remember the nap room, the kiosk and the nearby park well.
I was also able to observe the other sound people working, and I really learned a lot. The way they edited the voices and sound effects seemed like magic to me...

As I spoke about in my interview, Hayato Matsuo's magnificent orchestral arrangement, Iori's beautiful vocals, the timbre of the Chinese fiddle – these left a strong impression on me. (Iori let me join her on stage, at the piano!)
And this will sound like a fanboy, but I was secretly delighted to be able to watch Toshiyuki Watanabe at work on a recording! ^_^

By the way, with Shenhua's theme, initially I asked one of the sound ladies from another department to gently hum it for me, in a way that's "like it's wrapping around you".
For the preliminary version of Wish, I had a lady from the Shenmue sound team sing it.
And Mitusyoshi-san kindly provided the vocals for the final versions of the Tomato Mart and Bob's Pizzeria songs...!!

I realize how lucky I was to be on the same floor as the sound staff from other departments, and to be able to mix with lots of people who had composed the songs that used to be played at the video arcades I visited as a kid.
(We went out a lot for drinks and to play billiards ^_^).

I'm sure that even with a 2-hour program {video} I wouldn't be able to finish expressing my feeling of gratitude with Shenmue 1 and 2 towards everything and all the people who helped me. But I'm afraid I'm no good at speaking in front of people or a camera... ^_^

I'll put in my every effort, poor as that may be, on the music side to produce pieces that everyone will be pleased with and will be able to enjoy for a long time.

Thank you very much.

P.S. I was in two minds as to whether to state this, but – I'm not the composer of the song from the Kickstarter movie although people have been attributing to me... Credit is to the composer of that song.
