Another Atem piece. What can I say? I am a bit biased since he is my favorite character ever and my inspiration! haha.
This is the first time EVER that I draw the Dark Magician. Strangely, I don't know why I never drew him before ... I have this fear of drawing the duel monster cards so I try to avoid them, BUT now that I've tried it, I think I will draw them more often ...
This is also the second time that I try to draw in the chibi style. It was really fun. Please let me know what you think though. I always reply to comments. :)

Blessings to all!

WIP and Progress shots:


Atem/Yami Yugi, Dark Magician and Yugioh belong to Kazuki Takahashi :heart:

I am not quite sure why this is in the contest. It is not even a chibi. Chibi means small and he is not small. Looks like a teenager.

I am not trying to dis on your picture because the picture is not bad, it is just not ment for this contest.

Hmmm...the rules of the contest stated that "You can draw any forms of Chibis as long as they look like Yami Yuugi/Atemu!" I see that you think he looks like a teenager, but personally I do not draw teenagers like that, but like this: [link] [link] [link] (Jaden Yuki -15 years old- and Ciel Phantomhive -12 years old- are both teenagers) and the rules of the contest left it to the artists to interpret it however he/she wanted. In addition, the judges accepted my entry into the competition without any problems.

Dom't worry I felt your fear the first time I drew Dark Magician. He's not too hard to draw! For me it was his legs that were the hardest to draw! You did great with yugi especially the duel disk(im jealous I can't draw them!!)

Yeah, I know. I think I messed up his legs, too, in this one. Thank you for the compliment and for commenting, too. :)

Yeah ... I know. Sorry about that. It's just that I was a bit frustrated about it. :)

How's it going for you, by the way? I hope the situation is a bit better for Greece. I rooted for them at the London 2012 Olympics ceremony when they passed by. :)

Sometimes, even trying to make a chibi look angry turns out to make it cuter than ever!:) No need to get furstrated over art. If it can be done, then it will be. If not, leave it for a while and try again some time later. Will, inspiration and technique combine in times like this!:)

Well, here's hot and we can't stand. You were there?:wow: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!:tighthug:

Yeah, I know what you mean. My computer is full of unfinished work ... Let's see ... I currently have over 8.00GB of unfinished work. That's a lot when compared to the fact that one picture I draw is at most 15.0MB. haha. The only time I get stressed out about art is when there is a deadline. :lol: Your advice is excellent! I like the way you put it in words. :)

There are things in paper too!:XD:
True that about deadlines. It tends to happen a lot!

Ah, don't even get me started about the random sketches and art ideas that I have on paper, haha. That is completely another story compared to the digital ones that I have actually started.
I think what stresses me out the most about contests is the time when the voting starts. You know, I try to play it fair and everything like that, but sometimes people cheat and ask others for votes ... T_T I am entering another contest right now and I was ahead by a big margin for days and suddenly this other entry tied with mine within 2-3 hours. Of course, I'm not saying they cheated, but I've seen it done before.

You're welcome. It was indeed very nicely put. :)

Thank you. Drawing the duel disk was interesting and painstaking, but I'm glad I'm done with it. I rarely draw duel monsters and duel disks because of all the details that I haven't memorized. haha. I have memorized Atem/Yami Yugi's outfit though, so that part was easy! Thanks for commenting too. I really appreciate it.

Yami was really easy to memorize his outfit other than other protagonists especially Yusei...coz his outfit was TOO MUCH DETAILED!!! i almost die...hahaha!!! but still it gets me more excited because it's another challenge to me...

...you really did a GREAT JOB! keep it up coz you rock! 8-)

:iconelfbean:
ElfBean Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, that's true. I have a hard time remembering the outfits of the other protagonists as well. Thankfully I have memorized the hair and face and all that so I can create my own outfits for them if I am too lazy/unable to look up a reference.

Thank you. I am mostly a Yugioh fanartist, so, of course I will keep drawing Yugioh, haha.
