Egyptian Serenity- Yami Yugi by Yamigirl21 Egyptian Serenity- Yami Yugi by Yamigirl21
Hello everyone! :D

How are you? I hope that you're doing well. ^_^ It seems that it's been a while since my last deviation..... Well, this new image was created as my gift to everyone for helping me to reach over 5,000 view pages! Thank you all SO much!! I know I say this rather often, but I mean it each and every time....it truly does mean a lot to me! All of your wonderfully kind words have encouraged me more than I can *possibly* say and I hope that this small gesture of my appreciation can convey that even if only a little. Once more I truly appreciate it all! :hug:

As for the image itself, I thought that I would take the concept that I once played with before, ( ) and add a new twist to it. In this painting I once again illustrated Yami Yugi/Atemu and Sailor Moon/Serenity as I did in the image above, but this time I attempted to depict a form of role reversal for the two of them.

Instead of the norm, I wanted Serenity/Sailor Moon to be dressed in Egyptian-like garb while Yami Yugi/Atemu would be the one sporting medieval clothing. To do this, I designed my own version of what I thought an Egyptian Serenity would look like, which I greatly enjoyed. :) In terms of her jewelry, though I used reference and what not, I wanted it all to appear very Yugioh-esque, while also remaining similar to what the real Serenity/Sailor Moon would wear. I also gave her the darker skin tones, much like those of the characters of the Yugioh Egyptian story arc, as well as what Yami Yugi/Pharaoh Atemu had himself.

As for what Pharaoh Atemu/Yami Yugi is wearing, I simply borrowed the outfit that he once wore during the Duel Monsters RPG arc that occured shortly after the Duelist Kingdom saga. I must admit however, that when I first viewed that outfit within the anime, it reminded me very much of Prince Darien/Endymion's outfit in Sailor Moon so I found it particularly fitting to have him wearing it in my image. :D

Being that the two of them took up much of the space within the image, there was little room for an elaborate background. So I simply added some Egyptian carvings on the left side, where Serenity is leaning, while on the right, divided by Yami Yugi's hair, is a simple implication of a more classical pillar and drapery.

As always the image was painted with opaque water. ^_^

I've been nursing the idea of their native style being Atlantean. At least Sailor Pluto would fit immediately.

Well, I talked a little bit about it in the description of this piece, but I was mainly trying to depict an Egyptian Serenity since I was aiming for a role reversal with Yami Yugi/Pharaoh Atemu who did have darker skin in the past. I think the description talks about it a bit more clearly though. Thanks for commenting by the way. ^^

Great crossover people usually suck when it come to choosing the animes, i love both animes and actually probably watched every episode of both.

surprisingly, i actually like this pairing, in an odd sort of way. dont usually see crossover pairings, but hey, y'never know! i loved Sailormoon as a kid (still do, actually...) and it was a guilty pleasure of mine that i used to watch YGO in middle school. then it got stupid with YGO GX... that was just dumb.

i love the clothes yu gave Serenity! very Sailormoon-esque, but still keeping it like Sailormoon. fantabulous. and Yugi'a clothes from that stoey arc reminded me of Prince Endymion's clothes, too.

I'm glad that you can appreciate this piece on so many levels! Thank you! Truthfully I wasn't really seeing them as a "couple." I just thought it would be fun to mix them together and it eventually just became a tradition, you know? Anyways, thanks so much! You always say that sweetest things about my work! ^_^

i think they look cute together! ^^ of course, no one can replace Mamo-chan for Usagi! he's dreamy in his own right!

i love your art! it's so... real-looking! i cant believe that you *paint* those! they are beautiful! God gave you a great talent--keep up with it!

Thank you very much, once again! I'm glad you think so highly of my work. Yes they are hand painted. Painstakingly so! But I like to work with my hands so what can I say? I fet more of a sense of satisfaction doing it with pencil, then paint and brush. And of course I wouldn't dream of replacing Mamoru with Yami or Usagi with Tea/Teana. With all of these YGO/Sailor Moon crossovers, I never really intend to "pair them" up together. It's just for fun, drawing them together in one image you know? It just sort of became a tradition. ^_^ Anyways, thanks again! :D

This is a nice picture, if your interested, I might be able to create little cartouches for Serenity and Yami Yugi. A carthouche is simply writing the name of a royal in Hieroglyphics, and then encircling it!
