Daisuke Izuka is freelance illustrator, who works primarily in the fantasy genre. He is perhaps best know outside of his Fire Emblem work for his contributions to the TCG Cardfight!! Vanguard and being the illustrator for the manga Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There.
In 2003, Izuka was hired to contribute to Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade working under series veterans Eiji Kaneda and Sachiko Wada as a graphic designer. Beginning with Tellius saga, Izuka was promoted to Unit Designer with fellow artist Yoko Nakai. With the DS era, Izuka became character illustrator, inheriting the role from Masamune Shirow, a role he maintained until Yusuke Kozaki took the position beginning with Fire Emblem Awakening.
In 2015, Izuka was hired by Intelligent Systems to work as Art Director for their TCG series, Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher).
