startdrawing.org is a fantastic resource for enthusiasts of high quality artwork. If you ever came across a wonderful illustration by a unknown Asian artist, chances are that you may be able to identify the artist from this site. (At least I did)
Thanks to this site, I finally found the name of the illustrator for one of my favourite game concept artworks, a certain Mr An Jung Sik (Ziro) who created the artwork for Webzen's Soul of the Ultimate Nation. Below's a sample from sun.gameamp.com.
