    Kyoung Seok Oh aka Alien1452, is a manga artist based in Seoul, Korea. Heavily involved in video games, he has previously worked on MMORPGs including Steal Fighter and Neo Steam. Kyoung Seok is currently working with game publishers Seed9.

    Mr Oh definitely has a nepotism towards female characters. Their personality vary from innocent to hard-nosed, but their physiques are always distinctly voluptuous. However, his renderings are varied, especially in his personal work, he does not seem to stick with one style or a set pallet. Mr Oh’s colouring definitely feels more experimental and expressive, and brings an extra layer of interest to his work.

    To see more of Kyoung Seok Oh’s illustrations you can check out his naver blog, DeviantArt page, and watch him work on Livestream.

    Jung Myung Lee aka Rupid 79 is Korean fantasy artist. You may recognise his work from his contributions to the hugely successful card battle game, Legend of the Cryptids. His art subsequently features in the Legend of Monsters Official Art Book (Japanese Language).

    Jung Myung Lee’s artwork is full of action and full of intricate details. They are multi-layered, rarely using less than three planes. Even when he strips away elements his illustrations are still more detailed than most.

    There was once a Rupid 79 page in each of the illustrative corners of the internet, but they all seem to have disappeared. I have managed to dig up a couple places that he is still using (for now at least). Check out his DrawCrowd page, and for those of you versed in Korean, he has a blog too.

    Manga Mondays ~ Yu Dori

    Quirky, cute, sensitive and sexual, yes, Yu Dori work embodies them all. Based in Seoul, Korea her illustrations are a combination of hyper-sensual scenarios with genuine endearment from her characters. This sexually-charged juxtaposition instantly reminded me of Paula Rego’s The Family. With or without the sexual overtones Yu’s work is beautiful, vivid, and full of skill.
