Hyung-Tae Kim

Hyung-Tae Kim (born February, 1978, Seoul) is a Korean artist. He has designed characters for video games such as the Magna Carta series and the later installments of the War of Genesis series (War of Genesis: Tempest, War of Genesis III and War of Genesis III: Part 2).

Kim began his video games career working in the field of background music, then shifted to art and design. He has branched out into the comic book industry, serving as a guest cover artist, and has contributed to the Udon street fighter series.

Kim is currently working on an MMORPG named Blade & Soul in NCsoft. Blade & Soul is an Asian martial arts fantasy with cultural influences mainly from the Korean culture. Though it was said that he would not be an artwork illustrator but an art director, Kim appears to also handle illustrations as all artwork released for the game up to now has been by him.

Recently unveiled character artworks for Magna Carta 2 show that Kim has been working with SoftMax. There is no information released regarding the relationship between Kim and SoftMax for this game.

  1. You are one of my favourite artists and a huge inspiration to me! I hope that you continue creating your gorgeous artwork. I hope that one day that I may be able to create art as nearly as amazing as yours.
    (and, as a fan I must say, Marry Me!)

  2. Incredible art work, I grew up loving anime and watching my brothers play RPG games. I also landed on some incredible youtube music by two guys named Brunuhville and Adrian von Ziegler. They compose wonderful pieces of music. Reminded me of anime songs and RPG music. Keep up the incredible work.
