Artist Comment

my second attempt at a more "realistic" Bakura Ryou after 16 months... though this time I deliberately chose to go with a highly stylized semi-realism as opposed to something like this, mainly due to the trauma I feel when seeing the old version's attempted "photorealism"... which I deleted from here, but it's still up in my dA scraps for your viewing horror. I also chose to make his eyes brown like in the anime this time because I'm ALWAYS drawing blue eyes and wanted a change...

I'm actually really happy with this one... comparing it to the last time I did Yugioh fanart I think I have improved a lot, even if I'm still seeing loads of flaws. :D I guess the constant Muse fanart the past year helped after all.

Holy run-on sentences and pot holes.

Anyway, I wanted him smiling, since he's just that kind of character, and I wanted to emphasize his eyebags, since he's pretty abused, and... black t-shirt instead of his usual clothes is just for stylistic purposes...I also tried to make him look effeminate without looking like a girl...

No reference, about 2-3 hours, Colors DS+Photoshop CS4

    he has such lucious lips XD his eyes are kinda girly (though for some reason they remind me of how you draw Matt's eyes =P ); I like how you did his hair
