He freelanced as an illustrator and created various characters for major TV programs, commercials, corporate websites, campaign and events. Yoshii specializes in crystallizing characters for his clients’ needs with little direction. “My three dimensional characters are created by a harmonious combination of beauty, ludicrousness, and comicality. I love making my virtual figures/characters from a scratch and developing them with strong appearances. I am interested in making 3D animation and vinyl figure/toys in near future.” Member of The Society of Publishing Arts (Japan) and Digital Image (Japan). (text taken from yoshii.com)
