00:36 #10: Hidetaka Miyazaki – Dark Souls I & III, Bloodborne
Hidetaka Miyazaki was born in Shizuoka, Japan and is a Japanese video game director, designer, writer, and company president of FromSoftware. He originally joined them in 2004 as a game designer for the Armored Core series, later becoming known for creating the Souls series, starting with Demon’s Souls in 2009. Other games he has worked on include Bloodborne and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Miyazaki’s influences range from the works of various novelists, mangakas, and other game designers such as Fumito Ueda and Yuji Horii, as well as Asian and European architecture. Miyazaki’s games, particularly the Souls series, often invoke the use of high difficulty, strong visual and environmental storytelling, and a large amount of setting and character background information provided through mostly vague flavor text and fluff. His work in the Souls series has been seen as influential, with him winning awards and being cited as an expert of the video game medium.

After studying art and animation in Romania and the US, he worked as an animator for Disney until 1979. He then moved to Williams Electronics to create the artwork for Joust, taking a 50% pay cut in the process because he believed video games had more potential than traditional animation.
He continued to work for Williams (and, later, Midway Games after it merged with Williams) for 15 years until 1994, when his most ambitious project, The Pinball Circus, was discontinued.
In 1994 he left Williams for Capcom and designed Flipper Football. He was in the process of designing the erotic pinball game Zingy Bingy, when Capcom closed its pinball division.

He is the senior art director on StarCraft II.Amongst the veteran Blizzard employees, Didier has been a consistent artist for many years, his unique style greatly influencing the game art through all of Blizzard’s franchises.
Didier’s art design style has been described as “a striking, pulp sensibility that may be an acquired taste, but one acquirable on either side of the Pacific, side-stepping polarisation of appeal to either eastern or western audiences.”
Didier was responsible for introducing the Pandaren race to the Warcraft series. Among other things, panda icons also appeared accompanying much of Didier’s art, and could be seen in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne as the emblem on the Night Elf demon hunter’s glaives, his name is written in the Paladin’s book, when he casts a spell, and an unused Icon and two Models have the face of Sam’s face, visible only in the Map Editor. In Starcraft II there is a multiplayer portrait, containing a “Panda Marine”.
In 2017, Didier published an illustrated book of short stories, Grimbeard: Tales of the Last Dwarf source #wiki
06:52 #4: Akira Toriyama – Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest, Blue Dragon
Akira Toriyama is a Japanese manga artist and character designer. He first achieved mainstream recognition for his highly successful manga series Dr. Slump, before going on to create Dragon Ball—his best-known work—and acting as a character designer for several popular video games such as the Dragon Quest series, Chrono Trigger and Blue Dragon. Toriyama is regarded as one of the artists that changed the history of manga, as his works are highly influential and popular, particularly Dragon Ball, which many manga artists cite as a source of inspiration.
He earned the 1981 Shogakukan Manga Award for best shōnen or shōjo manga with Dr. Slump, and it went on to sell over 35 million copies in Japan. It was adapted into a successful anime series, with a second anime created in 1997, 13 years after the manga ended. His next series, Dragon Ball, would become one of the most popular and successful manga in the world.
Having sold 250–300 million copies worldwide, it is the second best-selling manga of all time and is considered to be one of the main reasons for the period when manga circulation was at its highest in the mid-1980s and mid-1990s. Overseas, Dragon Ball’s anime adaptations have been more successful than the manga and are credited with boosting anime’s popularity in the Western world. In 2019, Toriyama was decorated a Chevalier of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres for his contributions to the arts.source wiki
