Vision and Theme

Usually in visual novels, the backgrounds while detailed are made sure that backgrounds do not upstage characters.

"Is their story and world real? Is it fake? That's up to the viewer to decide."

Styling Choice

The brush-work style represent the cloudy judgement, bias and foggy memory when a character narrates their story in first person. This set up makes the viewer distrust the cast, even the very environment that the game takes place in.

Fan Art!

I painted Siwon, one of the lead characters in the game as a gift for the team!
