Aka Golem of Anachy/Scup/Gate

This is not cool. He was by far one of the most talented game artists ever to come out of Finland.

That is a shame.

Amazing that he was only 20 when he created those stunning Elfmania graphics! Such a talent. Rest in peace.

RIP, that's really strange that so many people doing video games (or people from the scene) die so young......

I sometimes really wonder why......

because computers and cellphones have a very high radiation. If you sit too much in front of it, then you never know.
