King of Spades by ssceles King of Spades by ssceles
The category I chose for this is Game Development Art > 2D Game Art > Characters, Animals & Monsters because, well, guess what? I plan on making a flash game with =ApocalypseSakura for his stuff. Woot. *waves flag around* In the end I'll be having to draw all his characters, luckily, he's got lots of references done already, and more on the way. ^_^

Also, me = not capable of drawing muscle. I wasn't even gonna attempt it.


For anyone left out of the loop wandering what this is all about, well, the King of Spades is modeled after Thief King Bakura in Yugioh, retaining his skin color, scar, and eyes. The character's personality and role in the story don't have really anything in common with Yugioh, but the connection is there. This new version of Bakura, or Akefia, is therefore copyright in design to =ApocalypseSakura, who's spent lots of loving hard work and time into his creation and the creation of his entire novel's world - Wonderland!

Wonder what Wonderland is like with the back basis of unrelated Yugioh characters? Not afraid of yaoi? Then check out =ApocalypseSakura's NaNoWriMo novel: [link] - I Don't Care (And You Don't Mind) also makes use of *KitsuneKittis's wonderful Nightmare Circus Yugioh world and characters. It's a wonderful crossover, and I'll end up drawing fanart of *KitsuneKittis's characters, also. ^_^

To check out =ApocalypseSakura's design for the King of Spades, check out [link] - and there's also other fan art of this character, too, so check out [link] also!!

My sketch, lineart, and backgroundless-version of this can be found at [link] - which I definitely recommend looking at, please!

x3 Well he's awesome, and so's the whole AU.

(It's just a pity there's been so much art theft going on surrounding this AU. I hear my art's been put on Facebook without my permission, along with the art of the original artist who was the writer behind the Yugioh-Wonderland awesomeness. Several other artists who've drawn these characters, too! I really wish people would ask permission first. T.T This rant isn't directed at you, but to think people 'love' this AU so much they're disrespecting those who put so much work into making it what it is. It makes me very upset...)

Yesh. Bakura is very much win.

Oh, I read about it on the 'shattered mirror me' about the theft! I feel horrible about it! If (and I really mean when) I draw anything from the AU's, I'll give everybody credit that they deserve! ^^ The AU's are awesome!

There's one artist in particular whose style I admire... *ramy.

I've met him twice at anime conventions because he travels around with an art booth. He sells fanart, and so he's been kicked out of a few conventions... he's stopped updating his deviantART because of a lot of hate he was getting (and I think a lot of it stems from massively selling fanart - he didn't just buy a booth for himself, he bought a booth for his gf also, for his art - and you're allowed two tables per booth so a lot of people were pissed his art spanned four tables). They complain his art is 'generic' or his faces don't hold enough expression, or all his eyes look the same... but you know what? I love his art.

*looking* It's a very good style. And the colouring's amazing.

That sucks about him getting kicked out. A lot of the time, I can only draw my characters with one particular expression depending on my own mood, anany other expression I try to draw just comes out looking all wrong.

Yes, actually. Someone else asked to draw him before I did and he went into detail explaining to them what colors went where. It's weird seeing Akefia as such a 'white knight' huh? xD

:icondecayingpanda:
DecayingPanda Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2009
Quite. I suppose it fits the cards theme, though.

I honestly thought that he'd be red and black. But then again, Queen of Hearts Dearest is red and black. So perhaps that was a silly assumption.

I asked about Lady Isis, and she was black and white, and with Duchess Mai being purple and red, I didn't think both Isis and Akefia would be the same colour.
It's a nice change though. Akefia in white.

Hmm, when I last heard about it, Lady Isis was black with gold... Hmmmmm...

He went to bed a few hours ago but he'll be up in a few more. Darn time differences. We'll get to the bottom of this.

O-oh, really? I thought it was white with black trim...

Eeeep. Silly time differences. What's he doing sleeping at this time of the year, anyway? Lol.

After reading through the comments again, he did indeed tell you white with black trim. But she still has her gold jewelry... hmmm... I swear I can't tell what he's thinking half the time, but that's what makes him such the genius, right?

Gods, yes, a flash game. It will be so much work with the coding and all... the art is at least the fun part! I want to get that out of the way first.

It'll be a sort of 'choose your own adventure' or 'interactive story' type game, with a hint of 'dating sim'. The main character is likely to be the Chesire Cat, but there's a chance Alice will get his own game, too.

I've never done a full-fledged game before, but I did do my Twilight Town: Zexion thing, which used some of the same coding I'll need to be using here.
