Kazuki Takahashi uses Tilt Brush to bring everyone’s
favorite five foot duel-master to life.
In appreciation for the support surrounding the release
of the latest Yu-Gi-Oh feature film, Yu-Gi-Oh!
The Dark Side of Dimensions, show creator and
all-around amazing manga artist Kazuki Takahashi decided to
thank fans with an extra special VR rendition of the shows
main protagonist, Yugi Muto.
In a short video released via Takahashi’s official
Instagram account, the artist uses popular
VR art tool Tilt Brush to
draw a 3D version of the pint-sized hero in real-time.
“Thank you to all the fans who have watched Yu-Gi-Oh movie ~~
thanks!” he wrote. “I tried using Tilt Brush for this VR
painting. Line and light expression is a fun tool!” Takahashi
captioned the video.
Kazuki has a long history of sharing behind-the-scene
looks at his various projects as well as creating cute artwork
for fans, which could easily explain his decision to share the
sketch of Yugi in an interesting new medium. On the other
hand however, this could also be a subtle nod to the future of
the mega-popular series. After all, the sixth and newest
iteration of Yu-Gi-Oh, Yu-Gi-Oh!
VRAINS, is set to feature a brand new
protagonist using new VR dueling technology to battle his
opponents in cyberspace. Hopefully this leads to even more VR
artwork by Takahashi in…
