I was in 4th grade when I held my first Yu-Gi-Oh! card (Summoned Skull) a classmate handed me. I'd sporadically watch the English localization of the Anime on 4kids after school like most of the kids I grew up with, but it wasn't until 2019 when I picked up the entirety of the Japanese Animation in subtitles and found that the true script was far darker--and the duel matches were higher stakes.
My 3 biggest challenges with this piece were rendering the Egyptian God monsters in high-resolution, drawing duel disks at an angle, and all 3 of their over-the top hairstyles/accessories!
