A 'Record of the Lodoss War' was published by revised edition in korea, last year.
In that project, I did the cover illustration and renewal work of characters.
Personally most exciting thing was 'Mizuno Ryo'(author) and
'Yuki Nobuteru'(character designer) checked my progress.
It was tough work. But, it was such a honor to work with those two amazing guys.

Griffin – Keeper of the Skies
The subject of this painting was a mythical flying creature from Greek lore.
A mix between an eagle and a lion, the Griffin is widely considered to symbolize royalty and majestic qualities.
The Greek lore portrays the Griffin as a vigilant keeper of the hunt or as a noble steed. The Griffin here is gazing over the grounds, keeping watch over perhaps some long-lost treasure, forgotten by all but its diligent guardian.
Legendary Dragon – A Sovereign Judgment
The dragon shown here hurls lightning as though it were a spear and breathes deadly flame.
Waves rip across the ocean and the lands are rend apart by sheer force.
A dragon is the true monster, living up to its reputation.
These awesome creatures only rarely unleash the full might of their arsenal but this is one of those scarce moments.
Is the world, as we know it, coming to an end? The dragon’s wrath is like that of a God’s fury toward timid tiny men, who dare commit sacrilege.
Lich King – The Night’s March
The masses need a leader to look up to.
Even an army of skeletons would have such a leader, and here, it is a long-deceased king.
The pile of raw bones lay without purpose in a deep forest and their consciousness lived in a world of darkness.
They were at rest until the arrival of the skeleton king, armed with an iron will and a purpose.
They would rise up to conquer and build a bigger and darker world, one without light or boundaries.
These decayed remains of a proud army have newly awaken to build a world in its own image.
However, the king may have other thoughts in mind, as we look at his almost wry and ambiguous skeleton face. Will these lost souls find peace again?
