I dedicate the first episode of this series to the Kakariko village, which I wanted to recreate to deliver my vision of the village in a next-gen look and feel. “

The Kakariko village was just the beginning

He also reveals that the video is only the Prelude to a longer series should be: “The goal of the series is to showcase different environments that I want to create as part of my learning process in order to become a better artist.
