ah, screw it. SCREW IT! I actually wanted to keep this away from DevArt for as long as possible to make it an even bigger surprise when I finally would decide to post it, but I am actually so proud of this one that I cannot really hold it back. Forgive me for that. T__T
This is based on another song. [link]
"Lonely Girl" is making me think of Aki who was left by Kiryu when he went away into te desert. Or, at least, this is what helps me to imagine what might have happened for my fanfiction "Desert Rose", in which Aki goes out to "Crashtown" with Yusei to save Kiryu, being confronted with her past which connects her with both men. And all three in the end realize that they somehow need each other to balance out their weaknesses...
what makes me so proud of this piece of artwork is that I finally managed to change my style a little bit and make it closer to the original. I have been dreaming of a little style change for so long and have realized that I need to work on poses a bit more, as well as on perspective, because these are my weaknesses.
so, this was my first step into a new style of drawing.
I hope someone likes. and I am sorry for the YuGiOh overflow. *bows down*
Lineart done with pencil, colour with PaintTool SAI.
As colours I actually used the original colour palette from the episodes. which means that I have saved all colours of Kiryu and Aki into SAI to always use them again. still, it is weird how much darker the colours actually seem to me compared with the series.. what the heck??
