Everything In Its Right Place by Rivan145th Everything In Its Right Place by Rivan145th
Soundtrack: [link]

This is my birthday gift for the lovely :iconhungary-san:
She asked me to draw something about thiefshipping ...and I had never done a real thiefshipping image before...well, never did a romantic scene either! The only one I've ever done looked all weird and stuff :/ ( know the one ç_ç)

Plus I was already drawing my own idea of how their first kiss should have been ([link] ) … aaaand it was anything but romantic, really XP

So that was my first truly romantic scene, and I wanted to try my best… despite the fact that the stream of consciousness is very basic and a little stereotyped; unfortunately this is all I can do with my English knowledge ^^’
But drawing it has been a strange and wonderful experience, and I'm glad I did it.

So thank you for giving me this opportunity Roy, and happy birthday! ^ ^

THIS.... This is gorgeous. My God. You as an artist are so amazing it is not even something i can put into words. The only thing i have to have changed is the wording. Some of it is a little odd, could be smoother. But other than that, dang. DAUM!
Plus the fact that millions of fan girls are for this couple/pairing, and this is the most perfect vision of them. You put it into pictures and made it a reality for the fangirls and maybe fan boys of the YGO community.
You keep doing what you do and good things shall happen!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
34 out of 34 deviants thought this was fair.

I rarely do critiques, but it kind of saddens me to see your artwork getting a load of comments, that aren't even sentences. And your picture deserves definitely more than a bit of drooling and fangirl-orgasms.

It may sound strange, but the one thing that sparked my interest, had not been your drawings in the first place, but the text accompanying those: It might be nothing but a stream of consciousness, but you are pretty eloquent and are able to express emotions and thoughts that run so wonderfully well with these pictures. Even without them, it would be a good poem, even if english might not be your mother tongue and indicates that you must be quite literate in your native idiom.

You've managed to write/draw romance, that would've turned into some sappy, mushy mess at the hands of many other artists, so, thank you for creating something with feel AND thought without going downhill too some stereotypical fangirl fluff.

I like the concept of the odyssey through time, always on the hunt for something/someone that might've been there all the time and free to choose. That's kinda cool. XD~

As for the visualization: What transports your internal monologue so well, are the gazes and gestures between those two: There's nothing left to be said and as your title suggests 'everything is in it's right place'. (off topic: Do you like Radiohead? I secretly hope you choose your title because of that great song! :la: )

You have a fine hand for contrasts and it's fun to see how you maneuver through the whole palette from the darkest purple to blueish white. Even the neon green highlights on the last panel are fitting almost harmonic into the setting. There might be digital works out there that are more refined, but the rough edge of your coloring only adds to the appeal imo.

So, to sum it all up into one, final synopsis: With artworks like this, it's fun to be into anime/manga, because it proves that fanart can be more that fanservice and nice colors. And it's always a relief to discover, that there are people out there who are able to fuse poetic and visual topics.

THE FEELS YO Danisnotonfire: FEELS 
deuxofspades Featured By Owner Edited Jun 6, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
This comic...I knew it would be gorgeous, but I was not prepared for the feels. The emotion conveyed in their faces, in the poses, is nothing short of fantastic.
And that last panel, rrrgh it makes my heart clench up! I don't usually even thiefship! But (Yami) Bakura is my absolute favorite and I always thought there was more to him than just an obsession (or worse, a dark god posing as human this whole time). You have conveyed, in just a few panels, what I've been struggling to write for months, even years.
*wistful sigh*

This is GORGEOUS. I'm not really into thiefshipping right now (my current obsession is hetalia), but this has inspired me to go scour fanfic archives for thiefshipping, so thank you for giving me something to do. :D
rosariogirl54321 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
I just favorited this . . . I don't even sail on the great Thiefshipping shebang, but this is just incredible. Their expressions are so unguarded, it's beautiful. Definitely one of my favorites, literally and figuratively. You did it so well, so exquisitely . . .
You basically just captured my heart. And I get the feeling that I'm not getting it back anytime soon.

Squirrelbuscus Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I totally agree with you, I just couldn't get over how perfect his expression was. It's amazing!
Tsuki222 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013
Increadible comic, short but very deep in character for Bakura.
DKAllen2012 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2013  Student General Artist
For some reason I just love how Bakura's shoulders are slumped in panel four, especially with Marik emphasizing it by holding up his head. :happycry: Beautiful work as usual :highfive:

I would just like to say I am a huge fan of your work. It is absoutly amazing, really love all the details that you put into it. I like your Ygotas picture the best though. I find this picture exspecially touching because I am a big fan of thiefshipping, and you managed to capture the moment without making it corny or completly unreal. This picture and your art in general is amazing!!!:squee:
