He's an artist primarily known for his monumental and majestic dust-up illustrations for the popular video game DOTA. 

And ahead of his visit to Manila late this month, Kunkka, whose real name is Kendrick Lim, unveiled a special gift for his fans here: an illustration of the Filipina superhero Darna. 

The risque pin-up drawing is available for purchase at this year's AsiaPOP Comicon Manila, where he will be making an appearance alongside fellow Singaporean artist Artgerm, or Stanley Lau.

It shows the iconic Mars Ravelo character in a revealing and rather spine-twisting pose.

He's responsible for some of the its iconic loading screens showing various epic battle scenes. He also has a character named after him, and has even done concept designs for in-game items.
