GUYS. I STRESSED SO MUCH OVER MAKING THIS EBOOK but it's finally done!!! I'm so excited to share it with you all that I decided to try making it available here as well! :la:
I know not everyone can buy online with Paypal, etc. so I wanted to give you guys an option to buy with Points! (I hope it works. I've never done this before. QvQ;;;;; )

BUY ON GUMROAD | BUY WITH POINTS (see right)

In Building Duel Cafe, come behind the scenes as I walk you through the journey I took to make my first art book, Duel Cafe.

In this 26-page ebook, I show you my actual notes from project brainstorming, alongside tips and some things I’ve learned along the way.

You'll also get to see:
  • an alternate version of an art book piece
  • under-sketches of specific artwork
  • examples of artwork that didn’t make it into the book
  • mini reviews of the companies I used, and more!

In addition, I’m giving you the custom doughnut card template I made to use on the front of Duel Cafe’s menus, as well as links to the fonts, patterns, and companies I used to bring the project to completion.

Finally? You will be one of the first to have the opportunity to help me with a huge, exciting project that has the potential to help hundreds of artists looking for concise art book advice. This is what I wish had existed when I was doing all my research! Seriously, don’t miss the chance to be one of the first on this team.

Q&A
Q: Am I getting the same thing as what’s on your store?
A: Yes!

Q: What software or app will I need to open the file?
A: Most computers can open ZIP files without any special software. Check this WikiHow article for step-by-step. If you’re on iOS or Android, you’ll need an app. iOS users, try this article; Android users, try this one.



I really enjoyed drawing the cover *Q* I tried to make it look warm and yummy!! The only thing that slightly irks me is that Yugi's "normal" eyes would not cooperate at all, so he ended up with eyes in my style -3- Style consistency troubles....

Tools: Paint Tool SAI (art), Photoshop CC (edits, text); I made the ebook itself using mostly Photoshop and a little bit of Pages and Preview (Mac apps)

This is such an interesting idea. I love that you are doing this. This is something I would like to get at some point. However I think I should try getting the Duel Cafe book. As for the cover of this it certainly is warm and inviting. Yuugi is one of though characters that can make you feel warm and happy. The detail on all of that food is great. Even how you have done the background so that we can focus on Yuugi and the food. Nice work.

I'm happy you like the idea. Thanks!
That may be a good idea if you want the book behind this one. I have a limited number of copies left, and I'm about to do a huge store remodel so if you're interested, now's actually a good time!
That's so true; he is XD
Thank you so much!

Congrats! And I know how you feel when you say it stressed you out a lot! We artists tend to get like that because we care so much about our work. I'm so glad you pushed through the hard parts and kept going until you finished. Congrats!!!!
