Song that inspired this: Love is the Ritual by Styx
This is a card I made up for a GX fanfic I've yet to get started on. And a few days ago I got the urge to draw it. This story this card was made for is called Ritual of Doom. As the name implies, Ritual monsters play a huge part in the story, which is why Primal Neos is a ritual monster. Just think of it as the Neos equivalent to Magician of Black Chaos. Since this is a more ancient form of Neos, I wanted Primal Neos to have a more atavistic look. Admittedly, a lot of the inspiration for Primal Neos' design came from Bleach (hence the hair, teeth, and face markings).
The actual drawing was colored using colored pencils. I didn't want to color this drawing digitally. The background and effects were done in Photoshop. There also some touchup work done as well. I plan to have the illustration for the Ritual Spell done soon. In the meantime, enjoy.
Dedicated to Klassic, who I'm hoping will get a bit of a kick out of this.
