Shinkiro (森気楼) (born December 14, 1962), whose real name is Toshiaki Mori, is a Japanese illustrator and conceptual artist who's currently employed by Capcom. Shinkiro's unique and remarkable art style is quite very well-known and renowned among both fans and the gaming community for his realistic take on character design, due to his utilization of shading and lighting, rather than an animated approach that is commonly seen in both manga and anime.


Prior to joining Capcom, Shinkiro was employed by SNK, where he had provided the character designs and cover illustrations for several of their most famous franchises, including The King of Fighters and Metal Slug. In 2000, Shinkiro was laid off due to SNK's bankruptcy and some time after that, he was offered a job by Capcom, to which he had personally accepted.

Shinkiro has also done covers for various American comics as well, such as Marvel's Spider-Man: Unlimited and UDON's Street Fighter comic series.
