Kaitou Magician Night and Day by wishluv Kaitou Magician Night and Day by wishluv
Happy Halloween 2008! (Spoilers for those who haven't read beyond Arc 2 of my fanfiction New Trials of Card Captor Sakura.)

Once a generation emerges a mastermind that can execute the perfect crime and create a legacy in the criminal underworld. Though his real identity is unknown, to the police, the media and the common people, he is known by one alias, Kaitou Magician, the mysterious phantom thief. An international top 10-wanted criminal that has stolen from crown jewels to priceless paintings, the notorious Thief of the Night has taken the media by storm with his dynamic and charismatic style. He is a gentleman and a magician, an anti-hero and criminal, a free-spirit that no police can capture and no human knows the face of....

- Kaitou Magician Origins


I am presenting the two faces of Kaitou Magician, an original character from my fanfiction New Trials of Card Captor Sakura. :) A night version as Thief of the Night and a day version as our Prince.

I drew and colored this months ago, but held off releasing it until my Kaitou Magician Special could be released. I was surprised at how popular Mizuki Kai is (probably as popular as Syaoran), and I am glad because I had a lot of fun creating his character, and hopefully I can show his different faces in the Kaitou Magician Origins Special.

Because of the details in the picture, please see full-view! Usually, I don't bother with background or composition, but I am very proud of this picture because I spent a lot of time coloring it and put some effort into actually having a composition. And it's probably one of the most time-consuming projects I've worked on, and is one of the rare times that I feel something came out the way I intended. I also had fun designing Kaitou-kun's outfit! :) It's also the debut of Perro-chan, Kai's pet parrot.

Question: Which version do you prefer? Night with Kaitou Magician or Day with Prince Mikai? :D

Kaitou Magician is like Kaito Kid?

Kai :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: There are no words to describe my feelings for him.

Wow, what a nice super-picture! *_* It should have taken lots of time...

My favourite drawing of Kai x3 I like his clothing as Mikai but his hair looks great in Kaitou Magician's
amazing story by the way ^^

Gosh, I can't decide which one I like more. Of course, Night is more like Kai now than Day. Hmmm...
Night- The one Meilin refuses to admit her love for
Day- The one poor Miho's been searching for all this time.

Um, I guess if I have to choose, I pick Kai over Mikai

Awe sweet! You know, for some reason, whenever I read your scenes with Kai in them, I always pictured him as the mysterious, badass type. Man, I haven't read for a while though. *sigh* been preoccupied. Sorry! You must feel a little weirded out, cause I'm sure you haven't heard from me before. ^^' Ne, well, anyway, love your story and I'll catch up whenever I get the time. ;)

By the way, just wanna say that Kai always reminded me a little bit of Tuxedo Kamen from Sailor Moon and Sanji from One Piece. Not saying that you took anything from there, just that that's who he reminded me of. ^^' And I also remember when I was watching that one vid you made that was a trailer to your series (I think), that there was a clip of Tuxedo Kamen flying shadowy in the night that wasfrom the SMSS opening. I thought that it was supposed to be a simulation of Kaitou Magician and all. Or was I reading too much into it?

Amazing work! I love the detail on the costume and the change of hair and facial expressions between night and day.
Wonderful picture and awe-inspiring work on the fanfic!
I can't wait to see more!!

CrazyKamakazeeChair Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2008

(That will have made no sense whatsoever if you haven't seen The Dark Knight.. lol)

Lolol okay, maybe not but WOW this picture is awesome. Love the whole concept of duality going on here - I love how as a character, Kai can never really run away from is "other half", so to speak. Just as yin is not complete without yang, Kaitou Magician can never fully hide from Mikai, or vice versa.

As for which one I like the best - well Kai would definitely take the prize lol! *swoons while boyfriend isn't looking* ehehe ^^; Personally I think it's the rose petals that make it XD

Can't wait till the writing comes out! *bounces*

Harvey Two-Face is creepy @.@ He freaked me out so much during The Dark Knight.

Btw, I love House and Hugh Laurie. :)
CrazyKamakazeeChair Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2008
Yes! So, so well written (though personally I enjoyed the earlier seasons better)...
Blossom001 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
There are no word to describe how much I love this. Since reading NT, I've had a bit of a soft spot for the "phantom thief" concept. Although, Kaitou will always be my favorite! But the gentlemanly Prince is also wonderful...
HanaTenshiHimeko Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
ME LOVE IT!!! <3333333 I send Syaoran and Kai my looooooove!!! *runs from jealous Meiling and Sakura* >=3
moonlitdragon7 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
This is amazing... and Kai is SEXY!!! Woo Hoo.. sorry but I think your pictures of Kai and Syaoran are so *melt* I love the different sides of Kai... Ok... I'm going back to dream land where I'm in Kai's arms
AmethystBeloved Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
Oh Wish-chan, you've really outdone yourself! This portrait of your original character and his alter ego truly is astonishing. They're both so beautiful in their own way. My heart melts for Mikai, though. So incredible! Thank you so much for sharing this with us!
KireiBlossom Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
*gasp* oh my goodness, this picture is superb!! The colouring, the detail, the contrast between night and day, everything is just amazing! Kawaii, Perro-chan.

I had a hard time picturing Mikai with hair parted, because while reading, I kept seeing an image resembling Syaoran with blue eyes. But now you can see he really does resemble Syaoran. OMG :D

I love them both, can't decide. The Kaitou Magician image is so gripping, and he's so dashing and mysterious, but then Mikai is so regal and majestic. I think I"ll have to choose the good prince, so I choose Mikai ^_^ Hehe, I love every single line of this picture! The lamppost, the flowers, the clothes, the hair, the eyes, the clouds. And its all double, squee~
selenityshiroi Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
It's absolutely amazing! I love the pose, composition, colouring...I love the contrast between the two...

I like both halves of the picture-both to look at and characterwise! I don't think Kai is either of them, anymore, but an amalgamation of the two!

Anyway, I'm absolutely gobsmacked by it! Thank you so much for sharing!
selenityshiroi Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I realised at work that this fits the Night and Day series of images that ran through the Cardcaptor Sakura manga (like Sakura in her cheerleading outfit during the day and in a costume at night, Syaoran in his school uniform then in his battle costume etc.). I can't believe it didn't click earlier!

(Now I'm trying to work out if I can do one for Meilin...since, as an anime character, she never had one)

Again, I love this! This going to become my new desktop-which is a great privelige as it is replacing Sebastian and Ciel from Kuroshitsuji (who are both very pretty!).
wishluv Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
Haha... Actually, I forgot about the Night and Day series for all the CCS characters! All the while I was doing this, I was thinking, ah, this feel very Clampesque. I'd love to see a Meilin version! (I don't get to draw her as often as I used to.)

I had to google who Sebastian and Ciel were... But omg, Maaya Sakamoto is seiyuu for Ciel? Funny how she went from super feminine girls to boyish characters recently. :)
selenityshiroi Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I draw Meilin too much! (because nobody else will, I think!)

CLAMP must get into people's heads and take over their subconsciousness!

Kuroshitsuji is my current fandom obsession! I love it! I'm hoping for character songs because, well, MAAYA SAKAMOTO! And, apparantly, Ono Daisuke (who voices Sebastian) has a cracking voice, too. I'm impressed at the range Maaya has. It proves her skill as a seiyuu.
