The 'MABINOGI:HEROES' received high praise with its best character modeling, and astonished people in that its high-quality graphic was completed without a full-time AD. This was possible thanks to Mr. Yi who has been playing a role as an AD whenever it was necessary.

During the ICON2011, Yi, Eun-Seok will give a presentation about the process to make the high-quality graphic of the 'MABINOGI:HEROES' and describe the roles of an AD. In addition, he will disclose the requirements to make the next generation game graphic and the unique graphic elements used in the MABINOGI:HEROES.'
Graphic is the most important factor to show an outer appearance of a game, which requires a lot of cost and manpower. Especially, a console game and a PC package game exhibit a very high level of graphic, and users' expectation is growing accordingly. However, it is true that except a few special games, most of the on-line games show limitation in graphic.
Yi, Eun-seok explained the reason of the lower-level on-line game graphic; the graphic carries importance and there are many people engaged in making on-line graphic, but there islittle disclosure or sharing of know-how of graphic. He said that he is to give this lecture in order to provide artists, who have a dream to become a game graphic designer, the career guide.
Meanwhile, this lecture was given last May during the Nexon Developers Conference 2011(NDC2011). It will be a valuable opportunity for people who missed the last chance or who want to learn Yi's know-how.
During the ICON2011 to be held in Busan BEXCO from November 8 to 9, it is expected that attendees can experience various graphic technologies such as the Unreal Engine and Unity 3D game engine of the Epic Games and visual effect know-how of the Weta Digital, the manufacturer of the movie 'Avatar.'
