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!


Disclaimers as above,

I can't deside if the ring kink or the king of spades is hotter.

...You have no idea how much I love this....
I'm kind of obsessed with this.

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!

I love the cape...and the boots...and your drawing style. ^^; Dammit, you're one of the few people whose drawing style I'm jealous of. XD
