The artist creates a magical Yu-Gi-Oh! Paint

An amazing piece of Yu Gi Oh! the fan art pays homage to three of the series’ most recognizable monsters in a seemingly magical way.


An amazing painting using a lenticular effect was created by Reddit user Wizyakuza. Depending on how a person looks at the image, they will see stunning renderings of the Dark Magician Girl, the Blue-Eyes White Dragon, or the Dark Magician. The transition effect, which took around 50 hours to fully produce, was achieved using lenticular technology, which, through the use of special lenses, allows artists to create printed images that move or change when viewed from different angles.
