Stuff I learned from Duel Art:

  • Yugi, Jaden, and Yusei’s hair are based on paper, rock, and scissors, respectively
  • Yusei’s hair is also based on Takahashi’s bedhead
  • When Yu-Gi-Oh was about different games Takahashi scrambled to come up with a new one every week. Once he decided on the card game it was “like I finally escaped from a cramped canal into the wide open ocean.”
  • Originally Bronk Stone and Flip Turner were to be Yuma’s bullies. Takahashi was surprised and happy when they became Yuma’s good friends
  • “Marik and Dark Marik represent a wickedly dangerous relationship born of codependency and a split personality. They inspire bloodlust in each other while violently lashing out at everyone else.”
  • “Thief King Bakura and Diabound, the evil force driving his heart to darkness. I actually have a lot of fun drawing really, really evil monsters.”
  • “The Kaiba brothers. I was happy with Seto’s arrogant pose and Mokuba’s proud gaze.”
  • Yugi’s hair represents an open hand with hints of a dry autumn leaf. Originally it was just red but adding blue made it easier to shade, and that became purple.
  • “Priest Seto and Kisara, the vessel of the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. This illustration shows how present-day Seto is driven by the karma of his past life.”
  • Takahashi feels Jaden is the most appealing protagonist in Bonds Beyond Time.
  • All of the Ryo Bakura line art is Yami Bakura or Thief King Bakura, and all of the Marik Ishtar line art is Yami Marik
  • “The goal here was to represent the finale of the Battle City arc. Only Kaiba stands outside the border of the Millennium Puzzle.”
  • “Finally, we have an illustration of Yugi and his friends enjoying everyday life. Note that Yugi is without the Millennium Puzzle. This represents his carefree days after parting from Atem for good.”
