Yela Gatchalian-David is a freelance digital illustrator currently working for the board game industry. In deviantART specifically, she is better-known as Antarel.
She has formerly worked as a video game artist for The Studio of Secret 6, Inc. and Buko Studios. Among the projects she was part of in said studios were Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II, Dragon City, various Pocket Gems projects, apps for Verizon Wireless’ GizmoTab for Kids, and Secret 6’s in-house game Project Xandata.
Although primarily self-taught in Photoshop and learned more on the job rather than in the classroom, she did attend a summer class or two in traditional painting when she was a kid. Despite the abundance of character-based artworks in her portfolio, she’s really most comfortable with environment settings and mood lighting.
Apart from art, her other interests include taking care of ball-jointed-dolls, knotworks, origami, cats, fantasy video game rpgs, and DRAGONS.
