Continuing her series of posts outlining how the game's characters were designed, Platinum's Mari Shimazaki has shared more artwork from the development of the excellent Bayonetta 2.

While the images are great, it's also worth heading to Platinum's site to read some of Mari's thoughts behind the art, since that's normally the kind of insight you have to buy an artbook to read up on.
