EYES by slifertheskydragon EYES by slifertheskydragon
it started off as eyes practice only I swear



but then it became yugioh

like everything else in my life

do you guys like the more "realistic" kind of drawing style ("painterly" style/high fantasy style) or do you like it more "cartoony" (exaggerated proportions, etc) or "anime" (strong/existent lineart with simple shading/ cel shading)

I think that it is a pretty sweet blend of yugioh and high fantasy.  It pretty much steers into a sort of fantasy looks after nailing the first.  That, along with the duality and parallel that it takes on with the segmented take of two eyes, one (a pair) on top the other, makes it singular.  Therefore I like it.

I just love the difference in the eyes: the sincerity and innocence in Yugi's, and the fierce passion and intensity in Yami's. The style seems to amplify it more than the cartoon version would

I think this is really well drawn... but I prefer the anime versions of them. You do beautiful realistic work, I'm just... partial to the nostalgia.

The eyes are a fuck of a lot scarier in Season 0. So is Yami (MURDER!).

I like the mix between Realistic and Anime...

Meh, I can't choose one over the other like so many other times in anything art related in my life ;~;

I think you strike and nice balance between realism and anime. Also, love the lighting and coloration. You can tell there's life behind them.

"… but then it became yugioh

Yeah, that's pretty much the story of my life. :iconheaddeskplz:

The "realistic" kinda style is pretty cool, and quite beautiful, but I think I like the "anime" style more. o.o' Not quite sure why, either..

Either way, beautiful eyes! You're so talented! :D

I LIKE MORE YUUGI. /biased

I'm pretty partial to the painterly shading on anime-style proportions. But that's because I'm stuck in a rut and never getting out. Still, "realistic" shading in lieu of cell shading can make for a fun effect, even if it takes a million years longer.

Also DEM EYES I am totally digging the crease in Yami's eyebrows. Very nice.

Your realistic style is BEAUTIFUL, just like your art style in general. xD I really do love how you did the eyes. It's the most catching feature on any YGO character ( I find, anyway ) and you made it come to life. :D Good job!

I don't see why anyone should be expected to choose. This is fantastic. <3

and to answer your question i generally like the anime style best but you're the first person i've seen so far that does realistic and still makes it look right. not even kidding, some if it is just weird

Personally I love everything you do ^^; yeah if the art building at my college were done I'd ask them if the head of the department would let some of your work be shown in the new gallery. No promises but should be done by summer but in the mean time I should get some work ready to show also...ooh maybe I'll buy a print of your work or show it to them. My art is annoyingly abstract the ones that are newish are from last night. The "best" works are like four years old because I really don't like the new ones.

This reminds me of the song Eyes from the last part of the orginal saga.

You had done so great, made Yugi more reality with that correct eye size. Anime is just silly with those size twice as big as one you did.
