Seedark's passing

Seedark (SeeD) is Pangya's well-known artist has recently passed away due to illness that lead to his death. This was first reported by music composer ESTi on twitter about his cause of death.

SeeD is known as Korea's popular illustrator. He has made incredible artworks that you can find on his site here. On Pangya, he was the lead character designer and art director for Ntreev. He was also assigned to illustrate on the PSP version of Pangya as well. Besides the fantasy golf game, he has worked on other working titles such as Project Alice.

His art brought the true spirit of Pangya. There's no one out there that can capture the art style of Pangya unlike his work. He has a passion for motorbikes, so you can see where the concept of Max's bike comes from. SeeD has been illustrating on Pangya since 2003. This year, SeeD was a concept artist while Nyanya has taken over his illustration position around a year ago.

This is a tragic news that most of us were surprised to hear, and not believed it to be true. As a fan of his work, behalf of me and all the readers of SLGaming, may we be reminded of Seedark here today. I do hope that Pangya KR will make a memorial announcement about him shortly.
