Hi all! I wonder who was the original creator of the original cg model (not in the FMVs, but in the official picture renders) of the HARDY-DAYTONA, the motorcycle in the red-gradient background. Is there any way to contact the original creator?

Why? As far as I'm aware the identity of the artist or artists responsible for rendering that CG image of the Hardy Daytona (that image is actually taken from the model used in the FMV scene in game) would probably be hard to discern, given the fact that SE had literally hundreds of different artists all working on 3d/CG models in the game, many of whom were outside contractors.

However, I believe the original designer of the Hardy Daytona was none other than Tetsuya Nomura, given this concept sketch of Cloud sitting on it () (which the render was based on) is very much in Nomura's style.
