Recently, he’s been working on his personal project entitled Tails of the Pantheon.1 ELBEZEL, THE SACRED GROVE“Elbezel is a character who I painted for my Tails of the Pantheon series. He revived my love for art and holds a special place in my heart.”2 AULIANA, THE GUARDIAN’S ARROW“I like the idea of contrasting designs.
