Antarel's Profile Picture
Yela Gatchalian-David
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
I guess it goes without saying that I am better known here as Antarel-who-does-Pokémon-fanart, but I'm really a digital artist who is currently working freelance for board game illustrations. I formerly worked with in a video game studio and helped with projects ranging from Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, Part II to in-house first-person shooters.

Project status:
Professional commissions: Send a private message so we can discuss
Contests/trades/requests: Maaaaaaybe available, but don't count on it



One of my better pieces of BJD photography. Done partly in homage of an old digital painting of mine:…

02 - Dormant Creatures Start to Twitch
aka Larvae Twitch in Their Cocoons
Season: Spring Begins (SPRING)
Duration: February 10 - February 14

After a long period of hiatus, I finally got this one out! At first, I wasn't too sure with using the Chinese windmill butterfly as imagery, but it DOES overwinter as a pupa. The shape of its cocoon is also in the "dormant" figure. Note that there are still mentions of ice and snow at this point (see next in the series).

Previous: The East Wind Melts the Ice
Next in line: Fish Swim Upstream, Breaking the Ice (With their Backs)

Geek Grind Coffee project designs

I had the privilege of working with these awesome guys for their project. Geek Grind Coffee is now online, and even more lovely info on their webpage below:

Artistic note: designs were made in Clip Studio Paint because of its vector brushing power.

It has been done.

It's primarily my fault if hardly anyone reads this due to my long period of inactivity online, but I would just like to inform my devART followers that I have finally shifted my career to one more in the line of game art development. My first job, despite the prestigious name of the company, provided little opportunities for me to have experience in the artistic side. Not that they were known for that, anyway. But like any new graduate, it was the name that drew me in. I thought I would grow to love it eventually, but alas, it was not meant to be.

Furthermore, due to the distance from my home to my workplace, I had to live in a boarding house where I was left with only my sketchbook and pencil to draw. I only went home during the weekends, where most of my time was spent either on loved ones, on sleeping, or on Skyrim. I have much to thank my significant other for helping me keep my writing hand sharp via Dragonborn Correspondences (dragonborn-correspondences.blo… ). However, it was a bit of a miracle that I managed to pass the test into my prospective art-related employer, considering most of the only practice I got was scribbling away on paper. 

Now, after so many tears and depressed episodes, I am two weeks into my new job. Not that things got any easier, I must stress. I've worked longer hours than I did in my first job, but it's a start. I cannot immediately reveal what are the nature of the projects I'm in (NDA, here we go), but at least I can now say I am an artist by profession.

...hopefully though, I still find the time to do personal artworks on the side.

In the second chapter of "A Lengthening of Shadows" both Ho-oh and Darkrai were mentioned.  Do you have any plans on showing what their gijinkas look like?

What does Humanized!Primal Dialga look like? I'm really curious.

Hello! Originally, I intended to make his eyes 100% red (no white), with orange-tinged hair and cloth trimmings, but I am so busy I couldn't even finish my only pending work at the moment.
LuminaBalderson Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
That... Sounds utterly badass.
And completely cool.

Excuse me, but do you take requests? :D
Antarel Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Nope I don't, sorry. :)
HeLIZacopter Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, okay.

Some one has posted one of your works as their own. I've already reported the deviation and asked them to take it down. It was a pic of your Dialga and Palkia one.

Here is the link to it. [link]
