Sweeney Creates Art for Shenmue Kickstarter

"John Sweeney - concept artist for Sony's The Last of Us and Uncharted 4 - is a huge Shenmue fan. Under official license from SEGA and in co-operation with Cook & Becker he created this official, limited edition art print of Shenmue. He will donate his royalties of any copy of this artwork purchased before July 17 to the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter!

Sweeney says about his Shenmue artwork: "I'm so excited that Shenmue 3 is finally happening! I wanted to capture the moment just after Ryo's father Iwao is killed by Lan Di. In the game the scene stops with Ryo cradling Iwao and screaming "No!". I wanted to imagine a shot where Ryo is standing just outside the dojo where his father was just killed. It is cold and very early in the morning. Snow is falling. The morning light is still weak and only some of the wood interior is catching light from the outside. Ryo's pose already hints at him seeking revenge."

Dammit. There is a big spoiler in the description if you haven't played the games. Also this is a duplicate article from 4-5 days ago.
