GHOSTS FROM THE PAST – BEST ARTWORK
All Yu-Gi-Oh card art is relentlessly impressive, but adding to the collection of bundled set strategies are more striking designs.
This water warrior has a pleasing blue frame highlighting the swirling mass of fire tones surrounding the warrior. The character’s design is a multi-winged spectacle to observe.
The rainbow palette surrounding the dragon offers luminous tones and exquisite detail in the design, giving us galaxy eyes just by looking at it.
The defining line work and bold colors offer a classic design for the Thunderbird, with a strong pose as it swoops down to the battlefield.
The striking orange tones surrounding the dragon are particularly eye-catching, reminiscent of the powerful presence of Bahamut from the Final Fantasy series.
This spell card offers a cyberpunk design filled with blue neon and an intriguing character sketched in the foreground.
