The International 3

Kendrick Lim worked as a game designer at a Tokyo-based studio for some time before he joined forces with artists Stanley Lau and Kai Lim to found Imaginary Friends Studios, one of the premiere Asian-based art studios, known for their contributions to the real-time strategy genre. Aside from his game work, Lim has worked extensively on book, magazine and trading card art for AAA companies.

What Lim is best known for, however, is his contributions to the Dota series. For the majority of IceFrog’s tenure as the designer of Defense of the Ancients, he has relied heavily upon Lim’s artistic talents for producing custom loading screens on an annual basis. When Valve Corporation hired IceFrog and acquired the Dota franchising rights, Lim was welcomed as a contractor for producing concept art, as well as promotional and fan pieces for Dota 2.

His last painting was “Clash of The Heroes II” He depicted the final match between Alliance (Sweden) and Natus Vincere (Ukraine) in competition for 1.000.000$ price. That match was 4th of 5 in the largest competition in the world in DOTA2 game. This tournament was held in Banaroya Hall in Seattle the home of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. The hall was full of fans that came from every corner of Earth. Also more than 1.000.000 were watching this broadcast online.

In the picture you can see the straggle between 10 heroes and the most powerful creature in game Roshan. He painted the moment of the final battle when every hero casts his abilities.

That was really one of the most epic game in history of such competitions. Every fans was thrilling and cheering for his favourite team.
